Can you combine earrings and hairstyles correctly? Mainly suitable choice of earrings depends not only on its style but also on its length or colour of your hair.
Does choice of jewellery affects your hairstyle? Do not doubt it! Only small amount of you knows which type of hairstyle and jewels suits your hair. A few rules exists which we should not forget and even when we buy jewels by intuition we can always remember them and avoid buying not suitable jewel. Although even we by ourselves often change, we shorten our hair or we let them grow long. This is also why has to our preferences change as well. Choosing jewels for a festive occasions is a special situation. But I will start with what we meet every day – and that are jewels for daily wearing. And logically, we will be interested in earrings, which are closest to your hair!
How to combine hairstyle and earrings?
Just a minority of you goes to work or to school without jewels. We wear them as a trendy accessory, as talismans or as a memory of a certain anniversary or a certain person who gave us this jewel. But in most of the times jewels don’t beautify you –for example when we layer chains or bracelets. Earrings are the most noticeable jewels on women. Exactly these can change the whole outfit. And not only! When you don’t choose them correctly, they can be even dangerous. Which is mainly a combination of long hair and long earrings.
Earrings has to match the hairstyle!
Have you had done a hyper modern or a geometrical haircut? Definitely don’t combine it with too decorated golden earrings, or silver earrings with vintage effects! Classic or more romantic hairstyles like wavy lob can be combined with more romantic jewels, definitely not with modern ones! Choosing the right earrings is the most important. We often make mistakes when choosing earrings for festive occasions. We still have an idea that festive hairstyle is romantic so it can go with earrings in this style. But it is the other way around. Trendy hairstyle requires trendy earrings and it is like this even when you need earrings for festive occasion or for a ball. But this doesn’t mean that trendy earrings can’t be bigger or more noticeable!
Bet on contrast!
Mainly when you have wavy or curly hair you can make a mistake of choosing too decorated earrings. But it is the opposite in this case. Combine textures! That means that wavy hair need earrings with a smooth surface. The size depends on other factors but definitely avoid those with structured surfaces or 3D shapes.
Golden earrings or silver earrings?
It is one of the most frequent questions – golden earrings or the silver ones? It is not that easy because gold has many shades. From white which is not recognisable from silver, then some shades of yellow to shades of pink gold. Silver earrings are a cheaper variant of jewel. Those who are allergic to silver have foul luck and have to choose golden earrings always or at least silver earrings with a layer of Rhodiumm, which protects silver from corrosion and our ears from the effect of silver. Layer of Rhodium guarantees 100% protection for allergic persons.
Golden earrings are more expensive but it also means that your jewellery box will have more jewels of great value. There is a rule that cold blond shades and platinum colours of blond should choose a white colour of gold. Blondies with warm, yellowish or strawberry shades should choose yellow gold. Brunettes can try pink gold which is getting more trendy.
Speaking of colour of earrings, we can’t forget about the colour of the stone. If you don’t choose see-through colourless stone you have to think about matching your dress. Matching it to the colour of your eyes is ideal – for example choose emerald for green eyes or bet on an complementary effect by having red stone with green eyes. Whereas the first case is harmonical and decent, the other one puts off attention from your face to earrings. This can be useful. For example when we want to show them off or when we don’t have a face of a model and we want to fool people a bit and pick up some beauty somewhere else – by perfect jewels.
Safety above everything!
If you have long hair, sometimes is enough middle length hair, some shapes of earrings can be even dangerous. These are mainly bigger circles. When you are used to run your hands through your hair often, your fingers can catch earrings of this shape and a slightly torn ear can be a result. Long earring are problematic when having longer loose hair very often. Mainly when if is the structure of earrings likely to be caught by hair. You should avoid there loose hair.
Be careful about the length of earrings
Choose the right length of earring by the length of hair. We often make a mistake with this as well! Long earrings are often chosen when having short hair. But they usually don’t belong to it! Trendy short hairstyle needs a decent jewel. It is really true that the less the better. Wearing small circles which fit tightly or pits will look gorgeous. These definitely don’t have to be unnoticeable. But leave long earrings for festive and ball occasions. Long earrings seem to be vulgar when having shorcut and they take attention from contours of your face created by shortcut. Which is definitely a pity.
Considering the length of earrings, it is the middle length hair which is the most universal. If you wear small earrings or longer earrings it wil always be nice to look at short earrings to glanc out of your hair in a wind.
But when should we wear long earrings? Definitely for social combed out hairstyles and for buns. This is when you can actually let yourself carry away and if you keep the rule, trendy hairstyle with trendy earrings, romantic hairstyle even with a vintage style, you can’t mess it up. Earrings also have to match the style of your clothes, other trendy accessories and of course colour.
Do universal earrings exist?
Trust me or not, they do and you can even have a choice because there are two options. The first one are golden diamond earrings. The colour of metal is on you but white gold is to be the most universal. But they shouldn’t be too decorated earrings but just earrings with one diamond or with a set of smaller diamonds.
The second choice are pearly earrings, or better said earrings with pearl. A pearl should fit nicely to your lobe. It shouldn’t be either too small nor too big. Your lobe should be visible. Pearl can hang down below your lobe but if we want an universal jewel, it shouldn’t be too much.
Golden earrings with pearl with a diamond can be worn every day to work, to school and they can be effective on a party or a festive dinner and they match every possible hairstyle. Just for „big evening robe“ choose more noticeable jewel.
Hair, earrings, ring – inseparable trio!
Ring is very very important in a trio hair-earring-ring but it is hard to choose the right one. Why is that? Do you think that just your earrings have to match the necklace? Mistake! Realise how many times we touch our hair daily – or even in an hour. Quality, preferably golden ring, your earrings and hairstyle are one unit. They have to match by style and you shouldn’t pull out a strand of hair every time you touch your hair. So yes, even ring and hair have to make a harmonic unit.
