Sometimes, a hair accessory can be a complete showstopper. Particularly, putting on a glitzy hair accessory is one of the easiest way to accent your overall look and add a major pop of glam. Whether you’re looking to jazz up your prom hairstyle or you’re in search of a chic wedding guest hairstyle, consider using a sparkly hair accessory as a finishing touch. Not sure which hairstyles pair best with jeweled hair accessories? No worries! We’ve got you covered with updos and buns, braids, and more, below. Find your new go-to dressed-up hairstyle right here.
1. Pair a Jeweled Headband with Loose Curls
Loose curls will always be in favor—but that doesn’t mean you can’t do anything to make this classic hairstyle look a little bit fancier, especially if you have a special event—such as prom—coming up this year. First, curl your hair. Use heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream, then pick up a large barrel curling iron to create soft curls (break your curls up with your hands). Spritz your hair with the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hair Spray, then place an elastic headband with a jeweled detailing over your head so that the front lays across your forehead.
2. Tie a Side Braid with a Jeweled Hair Tie
A textured side braid is a hairstyle that can’t be beat. But just because it’s somewhat basic doesn’t mean you can’t sport it at a formal event. Just add a jeweled hair tie to the mix. When hair is damp, use the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to help create carefree waves (the more texture, the better!). Once your hair has dried, create your side braid of choice—a traditional three-strand braid or fishtail braid are both great options. When you reach the end of your hair, secure your braid with a jeweled hair tie.
3. Bedazzle an Updo with a Jeweled Hair Clip
Updos and buns are some of the most popular hairstyle choices for weddings—especially when you use jeweled hair clips to give your look some glimmer. Try creating a smooth and sleek ballerina bun, then pop a jeweled hair clip into the side of the bun. Start your hairstyle in the shower by using a smoothing shampoo and conditioner, like the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Keratin Caring Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Keratin Caring Conditioner. Then, blow-dry your hair straight and apply a few drops of the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-in-Serum to the ends of your hair. Wrap your hair around a hair donut to create a big ballerina bun, then gently glide a jeweled hair clip into the side of the bun.
4. Pin Bangs Back with a Jeweled Bobby Pin
Don’t want bangs to get in your face as you dance the night away at prom? Whether you’re wearing your hair down in a smooth blowout or beachy waves or you’re rocking a bun or braid, jeweled bobby pins are an easy way to keep your bangs out of your face. Spray your bobby pins with a hair spray—like the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold Volume—first to help keep them in place.
5. Make the Ultimate Princess Statement in a Jeweled Tiara
Brides know that all attention will be on them on their big day—so if you’re nuptials are approaching, why not consider making the ultimate princess choice by wearing a tiara? Complete your wedding hairstyle with a jeweled tiara, and make sure to finish with a hair spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold, so that whatever hairstyle you choose to walk down the aisle in lasts through photos, cocktail hour, and a night spent on the dance floor.
