Choosing the best earrings for your hair style

It is often easy to overlook the importance of ensuring your earrings match your hairstlye. Read on for important tips.
While many of us give considerable thought to coordinating the various parts of our wardrobe, it is easy to overlook the importance of selecting earrings that would work best for our hairstyle. This may seem like a minor detail, but imagine a woman dressed in an elegant black dress with her hair pulled back in an elegant up-do. How would this image change if I told you that same woman was wearing giant hoop earrings with enormous dangling crosses encrusted with faux-crystal? The simplicity and elegance conveyed by the woman's dress and hair is undermined by the outlandishness of her earrings. For this reason, it is important to choose earrings that complement your hairstyle and contribute to the look you are trying to convey.

  • If your hair is medium-length or long, you will want to exercise caution in selecting hoop-style earrings. This style of earring tends to add weight and curves to your face, so those with round faces will want to be especially selective. If you choose to wear hoop earrings, select styles that have an oval shape and are crafted from a light material. Choosing hoops that come in square or rectangular styles is another way to add dimension to round faces paired with long hair.
  • Other styles that would work with long hair are those with elongated, oblong shapes that follow the lines of your hair. However, women with long faces will want to steer clear of such styles, as it will only add emphasis to the length of the face.
  • If you are wearing your hair in an up-do, it is a perfect opportunity to wear more dimensional earrings, such as rhinestone squares or diamond and gold drops. Up-do's also offer a perfect opportunity to call attention to the neck area, and a set of chandelier earrings or long, beaded earrings will set this area off perfectly.
  • Those with short hair have the widest range of earring selection. From the simplest diamond stud, to the most outrageous hoops, women with short hair can get away with just about any style. Just remember to take the rest of your outfit into consideration before selecting a style. If your outfit is complicated or especially flashy, choose a simpler earring style. You'll look your best when you don't have multiple elements competing for attention.
  • Also important to consider is the balance between your earrings and other jewelry. Too much jewelry can look gaudy, but too little can appear casual and uninspired. If you plan on wearing one piece of big, highly distinctive jewelry, forgo wearing any other jewelry. For instance, if you're wearing large, flashy earrings then skip wearing a necklace and bracelet. If your necklace is a particularly bold piece, leave your ears bare. Check yourself in a mirror when you are done accessorizing and make sure that jewelry pieces do not appear too cluttered or chaotic.
  • Earrings can play a large role in appearance. They can draw attention to your face or your hair, or they can draw attention away from less desirable aspects that you want to disguise. When accessorizing, think about how the different elements of your appearance impact other aspects of your look. Consider how you want to look and the message you want to convey with your appearance. Check your look in a full-length mirror to ensure you've achieved your desired style goal.
