Chunky Hair and Soft Knit Tops

It is all about hair! Use what you got and dress that mane up or dress down!  Accessorize with your hairstyle making it a statement piece to your ensemble. Wrap dramatic texture and waves together for a creative twist. Jewelry is subtle and second to the main attraction here, you will give just the right attention to your “showcase” piece. Pair a muted soft knit top with a hair punch and completely switch up your look by trying something new that’s totally affordable! I love rocking a new style with a bold hair do! Keep it interesting and experiment! Here are a few pictures for inspiration for this new year and for holiday festivities!

 Try a single simple fish tail braid for a sophisticated look and easy for a formal night out. Feel like exploring? Take your adventure buddy for a scenic drive and pull multiple loose braids to one side for a perfect cafe date.

I love the half up- half down hairstyle with loose waves in the back. Adding braids to this look pulls it all together, adding creative style and romance. Whether working in the office or meeting up with old friends this versatile style will always impress.

Fishtail braids are easy to dress up by adding a few bobby pins, floral decor or straightening half of the head.  Loving this look? Wear it two days in a row! Pull to expand the width of the braids the next day and wear a heavy whimsical do with flyaways.

Some of my favorite chunky braids are the single mohawk style inside-out braid. This sexy braid accentuates the colors intertwined together, promotes texture and draws an elegant line down the back. Don’t worry if your hair isn’t this long, this can be done with short hair too! It may not draw as long of a line but lifting the hair off of the face really can shape a new look! This is fun with small dainty earrings or none at all. Natural makeup is nice with just a pop of color in throughout the wardrobe. Let your hair take the limelight!

Last but not least! The upside down braid updo! This classy updo piece can really make jaws drop. The front is soft around the face and the back is like a long slit up the leg of your dress. Sexy and fun! Enjoy these hairstyles and experiment! You’ll be pleasantly surprised!
