Not everyone likes the updo hair style for formal occasions. Styling your hair for events doesn't have to involve an elaborate style. Consider wearing your hair down and adding decorative hair clips or pins or adding some clip-in highlights. Whatever the choice, there are many ways that you can liven up your regular,every day style so that it has a more formal look.
Consider Gwen Stefani's medium style, see photo left. This style features all over soft sexy curls that offer a formal look.
This is a sexy and classic look. Gwen's hair length has been cut to chin level and slightly angled layers have been added to create style and definition. This is an excellent hairstyle which is suitable for medium to thick hair textures
