Hairstyles are a very important part of your overall look. They are a way of creating a statement. Hairstyles are a great way to pull the outfit together without needing too many accessories. When wearing a sophisticated dress, the best type of sophisticated hairstyles are updos. Updos allow you to keep the classic look you are going for. It also allows you to keep the main focus of the outfit on the dress, letting you see the dress from front to back without any hair getting in the way. Everyone has different hair lengths, so here are different sophisticated hairstyles you can recreate for short, mid length, and long hair!
Sophisticated Hairstyles for Short Hair
Who doesn’t want to channel their inner Elsa?! The Ice Princess Bun is the perfect way to make your look go from normal to instant royalty. It gives a nice wavy touch to your hair without it being too much. Simply sweep your short hair into an updo with curls to the set to the side.
Flowers are another interesting way to add more originality to your hairstyle. By keeping the bun very basic, it allows the flowers to pop with your short hair. You can make the flowers different colors, shapes, and sizes that work best your look. This look is very simple and could be done by yourself!
Sophisticated Hairstyles for Mid Length Hair
A low bun with braids is one of the best ways to add texture and volume to your hair. If your updo feels too flat, adding a braid is the easiest way to add some detail to the hairstyle. Braids can be also used to frame your face and create interesting designs, too.
Minimalism is a huge trend in the fashion industry that can be translated into beauty as well. These elegant styles help give off a polished look. A French twist style works well with medium length hair and is very quick and easy to do!
Sophisticated Hairstyles for Long Hair
Long hair? No problem! There is so much you can do with longer hair. An elegantly twisted updo opts for more loose twists that looks like braids. This is a perfect look to show off your highlights. It also creates an overall simple and sleek effect!
Another option is a roll-up updo with a braid. This gives a classic roll up with a modern update. This braid in middle of the hair gives separation of the top and the bottom while adding some texture to the hair. For a classier look, the braid can be done in a much tighter manner.
These are some suggested updos to help you pull of a sophisticated look, all on your own, no matter the length of your hair!
