A woman’s hair is her crowning glory. You have taken the time to find the perfect dress for the special occasion ahead. Complete your look with a great hairstyle that goes with your evening dress! What is the type of occasion you will be attending? A wedding, a prom, a work cocktail party, or a formal dinner party? The basic formula is to match your hair to the formality of the dress and the occasion you are wearing it. Let’s discuss how to find that balance along with cost-saving beauty tips.
You don’t have to flinch when asked to attend a wedding. Today’s brides are very fashion and budget conscious when choosing bridesmaid dresses. If you are lucky, she may find a cheap dress with a great style! Usually the type of dress chosen depends on how formal the wedding will be. For example, traditional brides can choose an A-line ball gown or an evening gown with a little train sweeping behind it. With dresses this formal, she would most likely want a more formal getup for her bridal shower. To draw attention to the clothes, less is definitely more for the hair. A simple and classy French roll with wispy side curls is a popular choice. Do not be afraid of a “boring” activity! Busy design with extensive details could compromise a polished, uniform look. Accessorize to spice it up when needed. Branches of the baby’s breath or a rhinestone comb give the “extra” without overwhelming the up-do. A modern bride is likely to find a French scroll a bit common. She would combine a sultry bundle of side-swept cascading curls with the contemporary style of a halter-sheathed evening gown. If you allow her bridesmaids to look this slim, the bride may be fighting for the spotlight!
Employees are like second family when you calculate the amount of time spent with them. It’s fun to get in touch with each other in a stress-free environment during corporate events!

Is it the annual Christmas party that is a black tie event? You have chosen a chic cocktail dress for the banquet. It’s tea length, a little flirty, but suitable for mingling with the work crowd. A relaxed half rounds off the dress! By pinning just the front half of your hair, you get the glamor of a complete build up without the clog! For the Christmas party, choose a traditional ball gown. Considering the classic style of the dress, a classic chignon at the nape of the neck is a nifty combination. A chignon is simple and versatile. Gather your hair at the crown to place it high on your head. Try a side part, a middle part, or no part at all!
