hair and makeupImportant events and special occasions are a great excuse to play dress up and get all dolled up, but they can also be a source of anxiety if you haven’t figured out how to style yourself yet. If you’re stuck for ideas for your next big event, here are a few fabulous hair and makeup ideas to try:

Classic Hollywood

Classic Hollywood stars were the epitome of glamor and elegance. Channel your favorite Old Hollywood actress and try a classic wavy hairstyle. Feminine, romantic and alluring, this was all the rage during the golden age of Hollywood. This hairstyle works best with naturally thick, long hair, but if you are lacking either volume or length or both, you can still cop the style with the help of hair extensions. For a durable and versatile option, Brazilian body wave bundles by True Glory Hair are the way to go.

These hair bundles are made from premium quality virgin hair, and offer beautiful bounce and shine. They look, move and feel just like your natural hair, and can be styled just as easily. They are also well-made and extremely durable, so you can get a lot of wear out of them. With proper care and maintenance, they can last you years. Other popular styles to try are the Brazilian deep wave bundles or the Brazilian straight bundles, both of which can also be straightened, curled or styled as you please.

For classic Hollywood glam, pair your wavy hair with meticulously lined eyes and a true red lip. Keep the rest of your makeup relatively clean and simple, so the focus is on your eyes and lips.

When wearing red lipstick, it’s important to have a flawless base. Wear a full coverage foundation and spot conceal with opaque concealer to cover up any blemishes or imperfections. Your eyeliner should also be opaque, and a true black for a precise and striking line.

Sleek and Sophisticated

If retro Hollywood isn’t your thing, you can do the complete opposite and opt for a sleek, modern look. Brush your hair thoroughly to get any tangles or knots out, then apply a heat protectant spray before straightening your hair. Apply a hair serum for extra smoothness and added shine.

For your makeup, stick to a neutral palette and pair a smokey eye with a nude or neutral lip. For this look, it’s important to highlight and contour your face to emphasize your features. Well-groomed brows are also a must, and plenty of mascara or false lashes to complement your smokey eyeshadow. Choose a lipstick that is close to your natural lip color, or that complements your skin’s undertone to finish the look

Prim and Elegant

For very formal events like an upscale wedding or evening ball, you can’t go wrong with an elegant updo. Wear your hair up in a classic chignon or bun, and accessorize with a pair of diamond earrings or a diamond necklace.

Your makeup should be relatively understated, with flawless foundation and clean lines. Be sure to blend your contour, blush and eyeshadow perfectly; this look requires subtlety and finesse, and sloppy blending simply will not do.

Though you may naturally want to look your best and impress at your next big event, don’t forget to choose a hair and makeup look that you’ll feel comfortable wearing. If you feel uncomfortable with your hair and makeup, it will show in the way you carry yourself, and that will ruin your whole look.
