Springtime is the time of year when every event imaginable seems to come out of the woodwork-baby showers, garden parties, weddings and…graduation! If you’re graduating this spring, you’re probably thinking the same thing that girls all across the country are thinking: “What am I going to do with my hair?”
Graduations are the paradox of the hair world-you’re supposed to wear a hat on a good hair day? Who’s idea was that?
Luckily for you, there are some styles that work well with a cap and gown. We’ve rounded up the top 4 that are guaranteed to make you shine as you walk across the stage.
Simple and elegant, a braid will slide under your cap with ease. Begin your braid as close to the nape of your neck as you can to avoid a bump under your cap. If your hair is straight, give it a spritz of texturizing spray to ensure that the strands don’t slip apart before the evening is over!
As long as you’re graduating, it’s time to let your hair down! Run a brush through your hair and apply some smoothing serum to stave off frizz. If your hair is curly, twist the sides and top back and secure with bobby pins to make your hair sleek enough for your cap to sit on top of.
This style is perfect if it’s going to be extra warm on your graduation day; it’ll keep your hair away from your neck and looking cute. Plus you can wear just about any pair of earrings without worrying about snagging or pulling. Either twist or plait your hair into two or more sections, wrap around your head and secure with bobby pins.
Low Side Pony
A ponytail is the perfect way to look cute and polished on the big day. Pulling it to the side will keep everything tame and out of your face but ensure that your hair will still show in the approximately 500 pictures that your parents will take. Perfect!
What other styles are you thinking about for graduation? Whatever you do, rock that cap and congratulations!
