Most Popular Red Carpet Hairstyles


When your gown is glamorous and elegant enough for a red carpet, your hair needs to be just as fabulous! There are bold prints to bright colors, and off-the-shoulder gowns to high-neck styles, so your red carpet hairstyles can really make or break your look. Lucky for us, no matter if you have long or short, curly or pin straight hair, the different hairstyle options are endless. From classy updos to long sexy loose waves, here are some beautiful red carpet hairstyles to play around with!

Red Carpet Hairstyles: Low Bun Updo

Show off a high-neck gown with an elegant low bun updo. Even though a low bun hairstyle can be relatively simple, have no fear, you can spruce it up! Three different ways that can be done is by incorporating a braid on one side of your head, or leaving a couple of loosely curled strands in the front of your head. Another cute way to make this hairstyle extra bold is by adding a sparkly headband. The beauty of a low bun with a dress that features a high-neck is that you can pair this look with dangly earrings.

Red Carpet Hairstyles: Ponytail

The art of the ponytail! While sometimes people relate ponytails to casual looks or for when you’re working out, a ponytail would look amazing with this red carpet look. The beauty of a ponytail is that there are so many different ways to rock them. Ponies could be very high and slicked back to put full focus on your shoulders on a high-neck styled gown. Not feeling a high pony? No problem! Another gorg look is a low pony that falls all the way to one shoulder. You can even put loose curls in the pony to give it a little more volume.

Red Carpet Hairstyles: Half Up, Half Down

Indecisive if you want to wear your hair up or down? Get the best of both worlds! A reason to love half up half down looks is because they look amazing with any length hair. Whether you have long locks for days or just got a shoulder length cut, a half up half down hairstyle will complement your red carpet look. Make this hair style a little more playful by braiding the ponytail or by tying the hair back into a bun.

Red Carpet Hairstyles: Long, Loose Waves

This is a favorite look for all the beautiful ladies who have long hair. Styling your hair over one shoulder with loose waves is such a sexy yet elegant look. The best thing about this hairstyle is that if you have a high-neck dress, you can still show it off because all your hair will be loosely swept to the side of your choice. A helpful hint is to wear your hair towards whatever side you wear your part. Also, think about the direction you tilt your head and the way you stand while taking pictures. You can play around with this in the mirror and then execute the look!
