Tips on styling your most fashion-forward hair from your own closet

Tips on styling your most fashion-forward hair from your own closet

Do you want a hairstyle that really suits you? You don’t have to look any further than your own closet to get the answers you need. That’s right; you had the key all along, but just didn’t know where to look.

You’re best suited to select things you like. You’ve been doing it for years, and you’ve gotten pretty good at it, whether you know it or not. 

Think about it. Are you going to rush out and buy the latest leggings, paper bag waisted jeans, or a classic shirtdress? You know your style and what makes you feel comfortable, and you probably have a whole stack of t-shirts in a color you simply can’t resist. 

So how do you take all of this personal fashion knowledge and translate it into one or several hairstyles that let your personality sing?

Your fashion-forward best hairstyle ever

The best place to start crafting your next do is in your bedroom, looking straight into your closet. What do you see?

Bold prints. Are you crazy about clever prints and fun patterns? If so, your hair should let your clothes shine. You’re bold and daring, and you love statement clothing. A simple, sleek hairstyle is the best way to accent your sense of style.

Turtlenecks and scarves. Do you find that you cover your neck a lot? Whether you’re covering up to stay warm or hide a neck skin issues, high-necked tops are your thing. 

This can create a claustrophobic illusion if you wear your hair down around your face. Suddenly you’re surrounded, and your face falls into the shadows. Compliment your style with an updo or a very short pixie cut.

Sporty and no-nonsense. You’re a practical gal with an edgy side. A simple t-shirt looks amazing on you. The less dressed up you are, the better you feel. The problem is this look can come off as too effortless and even sloppy. 

The best way to make the most of your style is to have a few sexy hairstyles in your repertoire. You don’t need to go all loose curls and soft waves, although you’ll look great if you do, instead try a high ponytail with an accent braid. Look for something that says you put some effort into your hair. Even an accessory can be transformative.

Serious and business. No casual Fridays for you. You’re all about the power suit, rocking your professional flats, and your favorite purse is a briefcase. Awesome! One day you’re going to rule the world. That said, you still need a little softness to be relatable. 

A unique hair accessory, maybe something antique, goes a long way. Adding softness to your style with fringed bangs or a swingy A-line bob also gives your look a more confident and comfortable vibe.

Boho chic. Love the floral prints, retro-cool lines, soft fabrics? Then that’s the way you should dress, from head to toe. Keep your hair effortless and natural. A long cut with layered curls, center part with heavy bangs, a curly halo of short, bouncy springs–whatever your hair gives you, you already know how to rock it.

Cutting-edge style. If you’re on the tip of the fashion pyramid, your hair needs to be right up there with you. It is your crowning glory, after all. 

Today’s hottest trend is being yourself. Skip the color, focus on the cut. While every length of bob is a major must right now, you want a cut that flatters and encourages your hair to do what it wants, within reason. Have your stylist work with your natural hair shape to create a bob that’s custom-made for you.

Final thoughts

The best way to pick a hairstyle that suits you is to look at what you already love. What you wear says a lot more about you than what cut a stylist thinks will frame your face best. 

Being your most authentic self is not just the current trend; it’s a freeing approach to life and style. Once you’ve discovered what your personal style is, then your hairstyle will fall into place and give you a complete image that is uniquely yours. 

Go ahead, look in your closet, and listen to what it’s telling you. You’ve got this.
