1. Side Accessory

If you have a statement accessory you want to wear at your black tie event, we say go for it! There are so many different types of clips and accessories trending right now, it’s the perfect style for a fashion forward look. Go for this style and add a twist by putting the accessory on the side, toward the back of your style, for some surprise drama.

2. Sleek and Straight Ponytail

A super sleek and straight ponytail is a favorite for a black tie event. This style is simple yet dramatic and totally sexy. Achieve this look by straightening your hair, go for an absolutely pin straight finish. Next, add a generous amount of TRESemmé TRES Two Ultra Firm Control Gel from the root down, and use a brush to smooth down your hair and ready to be secured into a ponytail.

3. Textured Loose Waves

We love how elegant a loose wave style looks, especially when bumped up with some texture spray. Create your loose waves with a blowdryer and a round brush for a softer style and add a texture spray like Love Beauty & Planet Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Salt Spritz Texture Spray to add a little sass to the style.

4. Choppy Blowout

Want to go for an edgier look for your black tie event? We highly recommend creating a shaggier and choppier blowout style. You can achieve this my blowdrying with your hands as the guide and not focusing to much heat on your strands as that’ll create a sleeker style. This look is a little rough around the edges, and we love it. Prep your strands with Bed Head by TIGI Superstar Blowdry Lotion, it will give you the volume you need for a style this carefree.
