We all want to express our individuality, and Pinays are very creative when it comes to self-expression. You can be unique through the clothes you wear, your makeup, and your hair. After all, nobody else should have the power to decide on how you should style your hair. Whether you want to cut it short, leave it down, braid it, or color it, it’s all up to you. And if you’re looking for more ideas on how to express yourself through your hair, you’re in the right place. Here are ways on how you can style your hair to express yourself and stand out from the rest.
Different Ways to Style Your Hair for Self-Expression
1. Red Layered Hair
Not everyone is open to unconventional haircuts and colors. But hey, it’s your hair, so you should have the final say! If you like to get layers and different lengths, go ahead and do it. Dye your hair with vibrant red color, too, to express yourself even more.
2. Slicked Back Hair
If your hair is too short for a ponytail but you want your hair off your face, then, go for the slicked-back hairstyle. It’s perfect if you’re into androgynous looks or if you’re simply looking for a way to style your pixie cut.
Editor’s tip: It’s hard to nail sleek hairstyles if you have frizzy hair. But don’t worry. Say goodbye to unruly hair with Dove Straight & Silky Shampoo and Dove Straight & Silky Conditioner. This duo has Micro Moisture Serum that calms frizz and gives you silky smooth hair.
3. Full Braided Hair
Braids aren’t just for little girls going to school. If you love experimenting with different hairstyles, a braided bun surely fits you. It’s chic and it makes you feel comfortable especially during the summer.
4. Platinum Hair with Hat
Pinays have naturally dark hair and changing that into something very light like platinum is definitely a bold move for self-expression! Don’t mind the naysayers and just focus on how you want to style your hair to reveal your personality. Hat or no hat, people should not come between you and hairstyling.
Editor’s tip: Bleaching your hair can cause dryness and brittle strands. Don’t let that happen by using Dove Intense Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioner. It has the power to reconstruct your hair’s internal structure and repair to give you healthier, more beautiful hair.
5. Bright Pink Hair
Getting bright pink hair is another bold move for self-expression. Let this color match your cheerful and playful personality. This hair color is also a great choice if you want to change your look dramatically.
6. Ash Blonde Hair
Blonde hair colors are increasingly becoming popular among Pinays. We are seeing more and more women wearing ash blonde hair, and for good reason. This color is chic and edgy and suits even morenas. It definitely debunks the belief that only mestizas can pull off blonde hair.
7. Pink Ombre Hair
You can also leave your roots alone and dye your hair from mid-length up to the tips. The result is a dramatic ombre hair color that will definitely make you stand out.
8. Micro Braids in a Ponytail
Having long hair allows you to explore almost every kind of hairstyle—from simple ponytails to fun-looking braids! This summer, why don’t you tie your hair and create micro braids? Not only is this hairstyle presko, but it will definitely turn heads wherever you go.
9. Messy Top Bun
Don’t let what people say about your messy hairstyle get to you. Perhaps, they aren’t aware of how it’s becoming a trend. So, whether you’re out with the girls or just running an errand in the afternoon, you can express your carefree self with a messy top bun. You can even leave some strands loose to add more character to your hairstyle.
Editor’s tip: Enjoy creating top buns with thick hair. You can have fuller tresses by using Dove Nourishing Secrets Thickening Ritual Shampoo and Dove Nourishing Secrets Thickening Ritual Conditioner. These products have lavender and rosemary, which are known to promote hair growth.
10. Blue Ombre Hair with Hair Accessory
If you have an eccentric sense of style, don’t be afraid to show it. Get a bold hair color like blue and accessorize your hair with a fascinator or a statement hair clip. Style your hair according to your mood or personality and be as creative as you can be.
