What earrings look best when you have long hair?
The best earrings that will frame your face when you are wearing an updo or a pixie crop cut are dangle earrings. In this case, there is no hair available to frame your facial features and earrings can do this. Dangles can elongate your neck and face and someone’s eyes will be attracted to your face and especially to your eyes and mouth. You can find dangle earrings for every style and occasion.
When you are wearing your long hair down you best wear cluster earrings. Clusters are made from a few gemstones and silver or gold and they don’t dangle. And that’s a good thing since dangle earrings will become tangled easily in your long hair.
and some more tips…
It is very trendy to wear your long hair in a bun. A bun looks elegant and sophisticated and your earrings should be too, like drop-down earrings.
With ponytails and braids, you better wear teardrops and chandelier earrings. You can elongate your shape of the face with these type of earrings.
How to create a certain look with earrings and hairstyle?
Long hair looks very feminine and quite a few women love this hairstyle. And with long hair you have such a lot of possibilities to change your look:
With beaded earrings or gemstone earrings, you can create a perfect retro or gypsy look when you keep your long hair down. Earrings made of beads and feathers give you a Boho look.
Studs will create a more business look. And you could updo your hair and leave a few strings of hair out of your bun for a bit of nonchalance.
And for a special occasion updo your hair and wear extra-large statement earrings or large earrings in stunning color.
It’s all about the right combination between hairstyle and earrings, the right balance will give you an absolutely stunning look. And I will bet that José will have enough information to look gorgeous with her long hair and the right earrings.
