Sophisticated hairstyles don’t have to be complicated.

Having sophisticated hair is about making the effort to do your hair in a way that it looks effortless, yet very chic.

How do you achieve a sophisticated hair style?

Here are things you must do:

  1. You must go to a very good hairdresser. You must find the best hairdresser for your hair.

  2. Good doesn’t mean expensive, and expensive doesn’t mean good. If you know what I mean.

  3. To know what works for you, get your hair done regularly, or as often as you can. Take the opportunity to get your hair done when you have a special event.

  4. Brush and blow your hair as often as you can. Practice will make perfect, as you observe how your hairstylist does it and by watching sophisticated hair style videos.

What Makes a Hairstyle Elegant and Sophisticated?

A hairstyle is elegant and sophisticated if they can satisfy these principles.

  1. Clean
  2. In place
  3. Have no roots showing
  4. Natural looking color
  5. Frames your face
  6. Makes you notice the person, instead of the hairstyle

In other words, it has to have immaculate grooming.

Sophisticated Hairstyles For Shoulder Length Hair

One of the best ways to sport different types of sophisticated hair styles is to have shoulder length hair.

You can wear it up, down, inside or brushing outwards.

Here are some visual examples.

To achieve this look, blow your hair inwards with a brush.

Here is another alternative sophisticated hair style below.

You may blow it outwards, or do nothing at all, if you have a good cut. Add some highlights for some definition.

Wearing it up adds instant sophistication.

Other Ways To Wear Sophisticated Hair

Ponytails are very versatile as well and you can adjust the type of ponytail according to what you will be wearing.

For example, if your top is quite frilly or has a bout of color, you may want to tone down the ‘dressiness’ of the outfit by adding a casual ponytail.

If you have dressed in a sleek cocktail dress, you may wear a low ponytail.

Sophisticated ‘Black’ Hair Style

There is something very sophisticated and chic about darker hair, or black hair.

Sophisticated hairstyles always focus on bringing out the “best face”. With a clear face … your eyes, smile, facial expressions communicate better. You will have a brighter smile, a fresher expression.

You can also create a bump at the back, with the use of Bumpits on top of your ponytail to create a bit more volume and roundness of the head.

Hair Style with Volume

A good backward combing of the hair can give you extra volume to give another sophisticated hairstyle. Use a Teasing comb.

I love fringes. If you can carry them off, meaning – if they suit your face and you’ve got a little bit of attitude, a willingness to stand out, wear them!

They look so chic.

Short, Chic Sophisticated Hairstyles

I love the bob, or the POB (Victoria Beckham Hair).

Using Hair Accessories To Create Sophisticated Hair

I’ve always found that wrapping your head and hair keeps your hair in place against flyaway wind and always adds instant glamour.

With some nerdy looking glasses! Whether real or fake definitely adds some chic.
