Being unsophisticated is a label that is often associated not only with people’s origins, but with their looks as well. And we know that the devil is in the details. Even a well-thought-out look could be spoiled by a tiny detail, like a hairpin or a poorly done ponytail.
Listabs.com found out which hairdos should be avoided in order to look stylish and chic.
If you’re 12 or older, braids will probably look out of place: they make anyone look childish and immature. If you still want to have braids done try an alternative to regular braids like a French braid, a fishtail braid, a sleek ponytail braid, or a waterfall braid. Cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
2. A ponytail with a fabric hair tie
Hair scrunchies are considered to be one of the main indicators of cheap-looking women in the movies. A naive-looking face, long hair, and a colorful hair scrunchie… Doesn’t that sound familiar? Dina Scherer, owner of Modnitsa Styling, an NYC-based image and wardrobe stylist agency, recommends being careful with these accessories. Carrie Bradshaw (Sex And The City) once said that “the only place women should ever wear a scrunchie is in the bathroom, maybe.” Cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
What to wear instead: a thin hair tie that matches your hair color. If it’s too bright and clearly visible, wrap a thin section of hair around the base of your ponytail to conceal the elastic.
3. Donut bun
When the donut bun first appeared it quickly became a hot trend, but it became outdated just as fast. A bun at the top of your head looks too sleek and symmetrical and if your hair is thick and long, you might end up looking like you have a second head, not a simple bun. Try a loose, natural bun. Cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
