Birthday Party Hairstyles: 5 Stylish Looks to Try

Be the life of the party with these hot birthday looks. 

We all love birthdays. However, birthdays are not only for celebrating another year on earth, or deciding who’ll cut the cake with you (or not). To us, birthdays are for trying out that one glam hairstyle you’ve been waiting to debut all year long. It’s one of those occasions you’ll try something you never did before —like chopping your hair into a pixie to celebrate your 30th— just to highlight, that on this day, a star was born. So to help you figure out your special hairstyle for ringing in your new year, we’ve compiled a list of “it’s my party and I can be stylish if I want to” birthday party hairstyles to try.

2. The long slick back

A long slicked back hairstyle with loose wavy ends is a sexy style to wear on your birthday. All you need to nail this hairstyle is gel and a boar bristle brush. Part hair in the direction you want it to fall, liberally apply gel from root to mid-length of your hair, then brush it down while smoothing with your hands. Try out TRESemmé TRES Two Ultra Firm Control Gel for a smooth look with long-lasting control. Finish up this look with a statement lip to add a fancy edge to your overall look!

3. The simple low knot

Maybe you want a hairstyle that’s on the simple end of the spectrum since the outfit you plan to wear speaks volumes. Go for an updo hairstyle. Gather your hair into a low bun, then pull out a few tendrils towards the front to frame your face and add a stylish wispy effect. Pair this updo hairstyle with a cool statement earring to keep the look fancy.

4. Sexy bangs

What a better way to step out in style than with a fresh set of bangs. When styled with a long wavy look this hairstyle has a fun, yet edgy appeal. Create natural-looking waves with a hair wand then brush through to add fluff. Seal the deal with a hairspray like Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Plump Hold Hairspray for a long-lasting hold and touchable hair full of body and bounce.

If you’re looking for a hairstyle that adds a pinch of sexy to your look, try this understated wave. This is a great way to up the ante on your everyday blow-dry hairstyle for your special day. For volume, apply Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Weightless Blow Dry Spray from roots to ends, then blow-dry your hair up and away from your face.
