High Glamour Hairstyles: Short Hair vs. Long Hair

Have a fancy evening occasion on the calendar? Whether you're currently rocking long or short locks, let your hair length guide you towards your ultimate glam evening look.

Short Hair: Glam Textured Pixie

The hairstyle: Ladies with ultra-short pixie length hair can sometimes feel like they're forgotten about when it comes to glam hairstyle inspiration. Scrap that! As seen at the Grinko AW 2017-2018 runway show, super short hair can look utterly sophisticated when it's paired with thoughtful styling choices. Remember texture is one of the most important aspects of this look, so amp it up with a texturizing spray like L'Oréal Professionnel Wild Stylers Next Day Hair.

The style: This hairstyle wouldn't look out of place worn to a sophisticated daytime or evening event. Try pairing it with an ensemble featuring a high neckline or statement piece of jewellery as this will draw attention upwards. When you're rocking this statement hairstyle you want all eyes to be on that spunky and edgy 'do!

What the editors say: Pixie length hair is back and more popular than ever this season – and this looks prove it's versatile enough for both casual and formal occasions. If you're contemplating going for the big chop, schedule an appointment with your hairstylist first. They'll help you choose the short style that will be most flattering to your facial structure and features.

Long Hair: Glam Soft Waves

The hairstyle: Soft and glamorous waves are consistently popular on the red carpet and the ultimate special occasion hair 'do. As seen recently at the Max Mara AW 2017-2018 runway show, this sleek and polished look was made for a night out on the town. When recreating the style, you'll want to ensure that your waves stay intact all evening long – so mist on a hairspray like L'Oréal Professionnel Infinium before heading out the door.

The style: This hairstyle screams out to be paired with sophisticated evening attire. Whether it's a fitted cocktail dress or a full length evening gown, topping off your look with this chic hairstyle adds sophistication and sexiness.

What the editors say: Most of us are guilty of assuming that a fancy occasion calls for a structured updo hairstyle. However, if you choose to take alternative option of wearing your hair out, then this glam soft wavy look still fulfils the brief. The upshot of this hairstyle is it's a little more lighthearted compared to a traditional formal updo, so you're guaranteed to stand out from the pack.
