10 pageant-ready styles that are big, bold and beautiful.
What do all pageant hairstyles have in common? Volume, volume, and well… more volume! Designed to make an entrance and a lasting statement, pageant hairstyles are big, bold and beautiful. You’re representing something much bigger than yourself, after all!
We’ve created a collection of the top pageant hairstyles on our radar that include that nonnegotiable volume factor. These beautiful styles are perfect for all the beauty queens onstage and the ones watching from home. Read on:
1. Teased Curls
Don’t let the volume stop at your roots. Use a teasing comb to create volume all over your hair by gently backcombing your curls to create this textured style.
2. Side Updo
If you want to keep your hair out of your face, try gathering all of your curls to one side in a voluminous updo. Finish off the style with a good spritz of TRESemmé Tres Two Freeze Hold Hairspray so your style stays in place through the talent portion of the evening and all the way to the announcement of the winner.
3. Short and Sweet
Short hair is known to hold any style much more easily than longer locks might. That’s because the shorter the strands, the less likely they are to weigh your style down. To achieve this style, simply tease your roots and skip the hair product. Your strands will do all the work!
4. Relaxed Hair
Add some subtle curls to your relaxed hair for a beautiful and smooth look.
5. Piece-y Updo
This piece-y updo is best when created on second or third day hair. Refresh your strands with Dove Detox & Purify Dry Shampoo and create this simple, piece-y updo that flatters all face shapes.
6. Large Barrel Curls
Use a large barrel curling iron (we’re talking a 2-inch iron here) to create large and voluminous curls. Don’t forget to prep your hair before your curl! We suggest Nexxus Promend Heat Protecting Mist.
7. Curled Updo
This transitional style will work beautifully for the big night. Start off by wearing your curls down and later in the evening pull them up into a simple twisted updo.
8. Long Curls
Use a 1-inch curling iron to create small curls throughout your long hair and be prepared for the crown that will sit beautifully on top!
Hair accessories are all the rage these days and this intricately beaded headband will be all glittery and sparkly under the stage lights.
10. 90s Waves
Take it back to the 90s with this throwback style. Long, loose waves get a modern and pageant-ready upgrade when you make sure to tease your roots.
