The Best Earrings to Compliment Your Hairstyle

The right earrings can create the perfect finishing touches to your hair. The wrong earrings, on the other hand, can either get lost in the depths of your tresses or stand out so much that they are the only thing people notice about your outfit.

There are a few simple guidelines you can follow to create the perfect balance between hairdo and earrings. This will help your favourite jewelry to give the maximum impact and ensure that your earrings enhance your look without distracting from it, making the most of your best features.

There are two ways to decide which earrings to wear. If you have a particular pair that you want to show off, choose the right hairstyle to go with your earrings. Alternatively, if you have decided that you want to wear your hair in a certain style, you need to select the appropriate earrings to show off your locks at their best.

Earrings for short hair and up-do’s

The great thing about short hair and up-do’s is that when it comes to earrings anything goes, to a certain extent. You can wear small studs or massive drop earrings if you want. However, it can be helpful to bear your face shape in mind if you want to create a look that’s balanced and makes the most of your assets.

When you have short hair your facial features become much more prominent, so you’ll want to choose earrings that complement your best features rather than drawing attention to your imperfections.

As a general rule of thumb, if you’ve got a long or oblong face, a pair of long earrings will accentuate this when your hair is worn up. Similarly, women with round faces will make their faces seem even rounder when they choose a large pair of hoops. This is generally true when you are wearing your hair up. However, women with short hair will find that this visual trick is even more noticeable.

Earrings for long and shoulder length hair

If you are wearing your long hair down, you will find that small earrings such as studs can get lost in your hair. A good way to make sure that your earrings get noticed is to go for a pair of long drop style earrings, even if your face is long. They will provide tantalizing flashes through your flowing hair and will add a hint of texture and sparkle to your finished look.

If you have shoulder length hair, you can really play around with your look to get the right balance of earrings, necklace and hairstyle. Chunky necklaces look great with shoulder length hair, but you’ll want to keep it balanced with a smaller pair of earrings if you opt for a statement necklace.

Colour matters

The colour of your jewelry can really enhance your best features, so you need to make sure you’ve got it right. Jewelry should complement the colour of your outfit first and foremost, but if you’re wearing something like a little black dress, you’ll want to choose jewelry to complement your hair and skin tone instead.

Blondes tend to suit really bright colours such as sapphire blues and lighter coloured silver whereas darker hair can look great with gold jewelry and the deeper coloured stones. Redheads and jade or emerald green are a match made in heaven; there is nothing quite like it for showing off those auburn locks.
