Having a signature hairstyle is great for those who want to stand out and have their distinct personality shine through their unique sense of style. Some of the most striking and memorable celebrities have a signature look, like Lupita Nyong’o and Halle Berry who favor very short haircuts or updos to emphasize their beautiful facial features, or Beyonce who favors big, voluminous waves. If you’ve been looking for your own signature hairstyle, here are a few tips:
Feminine and Sexy
If you love to feel feminine and gorgeous, perhaps a long, flowy hairstyle might suit your taste and personality best. Long hair is traditionally associated with feminine appeal and charm. If you’re still in the process of growing out your hair, you can easily achieve instant volume and length with the help of a high quality body wave weave. Buy your weaves and extensions from a reputable brand like Harlem Hair Company, so you can be assured that you are getting a quality product that will last a long time. Their hair pieces are made from 100% virgin hair, so it looks, feels and moves exactly like the real thing.
If you want your natural hair to grow out faster, Harlem Hair Company recommends using rice water in your hair. Rice water is the starchy water that is left over after you’ve cooked rice, or left it to soak. It has many benefits, including detangling your hair, softening and smoothening it, and boosting its natural shine. It can also help prevent split ends and breakage, so you can grow your hair out faster and healthier.
To use rice water in your hair, thoroughly rinse about half a cup of uncooked rice, then let it soak in a bowl with two to three cups of water. After letting it soak for about 30 minutes, strain it into a clean bowl. Use this water as a replacement for your regular conditioner after shampooing your hair as usual.
Make sure to gently massage the rice water through your hair strands and onto your scalp for maximum nutrient absorption. Leave it on for about 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with water. Doing this regularly will help you achieve stronger, smoother and shinier hair.
Bold and Confident
A short hairstyle like Lupita or Halle’s gives the impression of supreme confidence and a strong and fierce personality. This is the perfect signature hairstyle to have if you want to emphasize your facial features, whether you have beautiful eyes, lips or enviable cheekbones. It’s also a good way to show off a slender neck or attractive collarbones. Short hair is relatively easier to maintain, and it can help keep you cool during the warm summer months. You’ll have to schedule regular trips to your stylist however; short hair can quickly lose its shape and look awkward if you don’t have it trimmed regularly.
When rocking a short hairstyle, draw attention to the parts of your face you love the most. Play up your eyes with colorful eyeshadow or dramatic eyeliner or fake eyelashes. Focus attention on your lips by topping a striking lip color with a high shine lip gloss, which will reflect light and make your lips the center of attraction. Or emphasize your strong cheekbones by strategically sweeping highlighter just above them.
You can also play around with different clothes and accessories. Halter tops, statement earrings and necklaces are all better displayed when you have short hair or when you sweep your hair up in an updo.
Whatever length you prefer, you should choose a signature hairstyle that you feel most comfortable and “yourself” in. It should reflect your personality and compliment your features well. Take the time to study your face and head shape in the mirror to help you decide what kind of hairstyle would suit you best. Hopefully these tips take you one step closer to discovering your unique signature hairstyle.
