Preppy is one of those styles that has never gone out of style. Throughout the years, we have seen it be revamped, but always staying close to its beginnings. Think: Kate Middleton and Blair Waldorf. Preppy hairstyles are nothing more than simple, easy, and timeless. Preppy looks are wearable for just about any occasion, from a day at work to a night out. Here we combined for you some easy, preppy hairstyles to try out!
Preppy Hairstyles: Classic Ponytail
Let’s face it – ponytails never go out of style, and they are the perfect go-to preppy hairstyle. Ponytails are super versatile and you can always mix them up. Use a curling iron to create soft waves in your hair. Then tie your hair into a low ponytail. Add a ribbon for an extra girly effect. Not into waves? Straighten your hair and put it in a ponytail. Add some oomph to your look by adding braids to each side of your head for a fun, preppy look. Ponytails are cute, easy to maintain throughout the day, and your hair won’t get in your way. They can be dressed down or up with any look.
Preppy Hairstyles: Medium Length & Curly
Mid length hair with side swept bangs is always perfect if you’re looking to achieve a preppy look. Keep it flirty and fun by adding curls. Use a curling iron with a big barrel to achieve large curls. After curling, pull half of your hair up for a half up half down hairstyle, keeping your bangs out. Preppy looks are about keeping your hair neat, so keep up with your bangs. If they need a trim, call up your salon.
Preppy Hairstyles: Buns
There are so many different ways to make buns exciting. Buns are a preppy-style classic. Go for a polished, slick, low bun for more professional settings. Simply pull your hair to the back of your head and twist it around. Use bobby pins and a hair tie to keep it together. But if you’re looking to be preppy with a twist for a night out, try making two twisted low buns. Buns can be sophisticated, fun, or laid-back, depending on your outfit of choice and setting.
Preppy Hairstyles: Blunt Cut
If you’re looking to totally change your hair, go for a short or mid-length blunt cut. This is a simple cut that automatically makes your hair look fuller, and it’s super trendy right now. It is super easy to maintain as well. To keep with your preppy look, simply straighten your hair and make sure there aren’t many fly-aways. If you want to make the look a little more fun, add side bangs or two pieces on both sides.
When going for a preppy look, make sure your hair is always brushed and taken care of. Keep your hair a natural-toned color and stay away from any bright or contrasting colors. A preppy look is all about being neat and presentable, so less is more.
