Formal Hairstyle Ideas - Fall 2008
Every woman wants to look gorgeous at a formal event. Whether it’s a wedding, prom, anniversary, or other occasion, the way one’s hair is styled can truly make all the difference. For most women, a formal hairstyle involves an elaborate updo. Traditionally, these styles involve perfect curls and twists with not a single lock out of place.

These are timeless options, but modern updos are becoming looser. A well-designed style with loose curls and select pieces left down provide a casual elegance that makes the wearer look more natural. While updos are still in style, wearing one’s hair down at a formal event is also quite popular.

Smooth, shiny waves and curls look fabulous on those with medium to long hair. These look even better when combined with side-swept bangs. Those with short hair may think they are unable to complete a formal look.

However, this is not the case. A simple, sleek short ‘do can be just as elegant and glamorous as a longer style. A stunning accessory can also add a little sparkle to a short look. Overall, the best way to choose a formal hairstyle is to search magazines and the internet for ideas. Then, take some pictures to your stylist. He or she will know what style will look best on your features and for your event.
