Sorry, but not sorry. It had to be said. As a personal stylist I like to remind my clients that your hair is an essential part of your overall appearance and the hard truth is it can make or break an outfit. Here are a few reasons to consider why your hair matters when putting an outfit together:
1. Clash or complement
Hair can complement or clash with your outfit from the colors, texture, and style. These can either be a big hit or big miss. Example, if you're wearing a bold or colorful outfit, you might want to opt for a more subdued hairstyle, like a sleek bun or a low ponytail. A hair style that highlights your natural beauty, but your outfit steals the show. Conversely, if you're wearing a simple, monochromatic outfit, you can experiment with more intricate hairstyles and even playful hair accessories.
2. Your hair can create a mood or set a vibe.
Your hairstyle can set the tone for your outfit and create a certain mood or vibe. For example, a messy bun or tousled waves can give off a relaxed, casual vibe. While a sleek blowout or updo can convey a more polished and sophisticated look.
3. Just do it
Nike said it best – just do it! The worst thing
you can do when attempting to put a look together is not making any effort to fix your hair. I mean, come on. Everyone knows it’s the hair that completes the look. If you forgot to put on lipstick, or forgot to add a certain accessory no one would probably notice. However,
if you forgot to wash your hair or failed to appropriately style your hair. Oh, trust and believe people will notice.
When styled, your hair can elevate your entire look by adding harmony, balance, and sophistication. Enhancing your confidence, making you feel your best from head to toe.
4. Play on texture. Rock your braids
The texture of your hair can add dimension and intrigued to your entire look. It can reflect your personality, culture, and individuality. It's also great a way to express yourself and make a statement about who you are.
Rather it’s rocking corn rolls, box braids, bantu knots or kinky twists; this is a reflection of who you are!
So, allow it to show up in your next edgy or classic outfit choice. We want to see it!
5. Stand out – Add accessories
Hair accessories can enhance your overall appearance by adding a touch of glam. Something as simple as adding a gold hairpin or an intricate headband can really take your look to the next level, making it visually appealing. What’s also cool is you don’t have to limit yourself to just hair jewels, you can mix it up and top your look off with a stylish hat or a knitted beanie. These are timeless and you can find a hat that’s perfect for any occasion. Remember fashion and style are experimental don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd.
In conclusion, your hair is a crucial component of your overall appearance and can enhance or detract from your outfit. By taking the time to consider your hairstyle when putting together an outfit, you can ensure that your look is cohesive, polished, and stylish
