Pulling off a look that highlights hair, jewelry, and clothing can be tricky. There are so many things you need to coordinate, including your jewelry selections and hairstyle choices. Here is the best ways to match your Jewelry with your Hairstyle. Blending these two can feel like a nightmare, yet they are so important when trying to complete a look. If you’re finding it difficult to decide on the best hairstyle and jewelry combo, here are the best ways to help you pull off the perfect look.
Balancing Hair Color with Jewelry Hues
Not everyone realizes it, but hair color is a large component of your overall appearance. When you consider your hair color, it is apparent that you should focus on the clothes and jewelry that work well with it.
While many sources can help you coordinate jewelry pieces to match skin tone, complementing hair color with pieces is a bit trickier. After looking at your hair in one of four colors—blond, red, black, and brunette—you can then decide on jewelry colors. Take a look at this breakdown to discover which stones look best with your hair:
Blondes don’t just have more fun; they have an easier time with selecting jewelry. Their fair colored hair isn’t very imposing, making it much more versatile for a variety of earrings and necklaces. Blue and green hued stones, like topaz, sapphire, and emerald, are the most breathtaking, or you could add something with a splash of orange, like carnelian, for an even bolder look.
Neutral pieces that focus on earth tones are ideal for redheads to create a look that will pop, especially pieces that shy away gray undertones. Meanwhile deep shades of red (think ruby and garnet) and purple (imagine amethyst) are the best for brunettes because they highlight the natural undertones in brown hair. Women with black hair are the most fortunate, as just about anything with a bold and bright finish will stand out.
Jewelry that Stands Out Against Hair Texture
If you want the jewelry you wear to really stand out, it is important to go with a choice that is opposite to your hair’s texture. If you have curly hair, stick to earrings and necklaces that are long, straight, and simple. After all, your hair is eye-catching enough that it will make fancy pieces of jewelry disappear.
For straight hair styles, offset the sleek lines with something swirling and elegant. Fancy dangles and chandeliers for earrings and big, bold necklaces will really give you a radiant look.
Let Your Jewelry Shine
Once you’ve found a color and style that suits your hair, you need to find an actual hairstyle. Since most jewelry rests along your neck or adorns your ears, updos are the best way to show off your pieces. With your hair down, your earrings will get lost among hair strands and your necklaces will be hidden. Consider choosing a sleek ponytail or a messy bun next time you want to let your jewelry shine.
Putting it All Together
When pulling together pieces from different jewelry-manufacturers, it’s important to keep in mind how everything will blend together. Style guidelines for hair texture and color can be applied to earrings equally along with necklaces and other pieces, but you don’t want the jewelry designs to cancel each other out. Try and find matching styles, metals, and colors to create an elegant signature look that stands out while blending with your whole outfit.
