There are a lot of things to consider when it comes to finding the right earrings. One of the most important things you should think about is finding earrings that work well with your hairstyle. Whether you want earrings that are visible with longer hair, or want to show off the latest bob or pixie cut, choosing the right pair can make a huge difference.
The good news is that there are hundreds of styles of handmade earrings, and that means that you have a ton of styles to choose from. Better yet, by getting a pair of handmade earrings, or a handmade jewelry set, you’ll get the added benefit of having a unique style that stands out from the crowd - even if you choose a more understated look!
Here are some general tips to help you choose the right styles for your latest haircut. Plus, if you combine the different tips here you can build a handmade jewelry collection that will work for any hairstyle you might choose in the future.
How to Match Your Earrings To Your Hairstyle
Here are some simple tips that will help you choose stylish earrings that look good with your hairstyle and won’t mess with your look. Tired of getting your earrings tangled up in your hair? You’re in the right place.
Keep these tips in mind and you’ll be able to choose the perfect pair of earrings, whether you’re looking for birthstone jewelry, a professional pair to wear to the office, or a stunning look for a night out.
Long Hair Flowing Free
Long hair is its own statement. It takes time and effort to keep flowing locks healthy and looking good, and your earrings should accentuate that rather than distract from it.
It might seem like larger dangling earrings are a natural choice for long hair, but the truth is that most dangling earrings are just going to get tangled in your hair instead of making it look good. Worse, all those tangled hairs might mean breakage, which can make you look frizzy.
Instead, stud earrings and styles that sit close to your ear lobes will show off your fashion taste and your long hair and dedication at the same time. Big stones or bright colors can add a little pizazz for a night out, especially if you pin some of your hair back to show off your new earrings.
Working A Ponytail
Ponytails are some of the most common styles for people with longer hair, but styling a ponytail can be tricky. Too tight and you can look severe, too loose and your ponytail might look messy.
But did you know that your choice of earring matters just as much as how well you’ve tied back your hair?
The good news is that ponytails create high visibility around your jawline, so you can choose almost any earring and it will look good.
If you really want to shine or to show off a more stylish unique look, ear threaders or wraps are the way to go. The delicate threads of ear threaders aren’t great for any look with your hair down. They can get wrapped in your hair causing all kinds of problems. But with your hair up, a more ornate delicate look can really soften your ponytail and make it something special.
Dangling and drop earrings can also work and add a little drama while still softening your overall look.
Rocking A Pixie Cut
Pixie cuts come in a lot of different lengths and styles, which can make them a trickier look to work with when it comes to choosing the right handmade jewelry for your style.
Even with all the variety in pixie cuts, there are a few general rules you can follow that should look good no matter what kind of pixie you chose.
Like ponytails, there are a lot of options when it comes to this kind of shorter style. Ear threads work, but they might be a little too edgy when combined with a pixie for everyday wear or office outfits. Dangling earrings are a little more conservative options that still look stylish and fun.
Or, if you’re looking for everyday wear options that work in the office and on a night out, hoop earrings and similar styles are a great option!
Buns And Bigger Jewelry
Like a formal bun? Whether you’re tossing your hair into a messy bun to manage chores and want to dress it up before you go out with friends, or wearing a chignon for a formal occasion and need the right earrings to match, having the perfect pair of earrings can seem like a tall order.
With a bun you want a beautiful pair of dangling earrings that will really help show off your jawline and the style of the bun. Longer dangling earrings are good for people with long necks, while shorter earrings will complement people with slightly shorter necks or more squared off shoulders.
Natural Curls? No Problem!
Curly hair is often big and dramatic, which means that you need a pair of earrings that will help complement that. Unfortunately, curly hair can also make tangling and getting caught in earrings a bigger problem, so you need dramatic earrings, but you also need a pair of earrings with smooth edges that are going to be easy to get out of your hair.
Curves, simple lines, and avoiding excess threads or coils can all help make sure your earrings will be safe for your hair.
That means hoops, some styles of drop earrings, and the occasional chandelier earring should work well in your hair. The main thing is avoiding anything with sharp corners or areas that will actively get tangled into your hair.
Of course, everyone can wear simple studs if you’re not looking for a flashier look or just need a simple pair of earrings rather than the perfect pair. The same basic rules apply, you want a simpler or rounder design.
