Selecting a formal hairstyle for the party needs to begin with deciding whether you want your hair to be pinned up up or down. Most of the formal hairdos are designed up right pinned up hair and the curls are set in the hair at the bottom. The technique of creating an updo lends more volume to hair, giving it a perfect texture it needs to match with a party dress.
The prom party is the common formal occasion when women will want to wear formal updo or a bun. There is not much a good combination of a high hair do or a bun, the former one is way friendly and the latter is actually sleek but more suitable for weddings. So when you are to attend a party where you’ll meet with your modern friends, your primer focus should be on selecting the right up or down do. If your face is heart shaped or rounded, you need to pick an updo that includes curls as well. The finish look should make your face shape a bit longer than broader, which you can do by making few hair strands fall here and there. The height of updo will also determine your outlook.
If your face shape is oval or long, your focus should be covering your sides by letting the hairstyle frame your entire face. The hair strands should fall on both sides of your face, making it look bit voluminous and healthy.
