Bachelorette parties are a lot of fun, and a great excuse to get dressed up for a night out! To celebrate the bride-to-be in style, you'll need a party ready hairdo... which is where we come in! Below, you'll find no less than twelve inspiring red carpet hairstyles, all of which are totally accessible and look amazing with all kinds of outfits.
Which one will you go for?
1. Zoe Saldana's curly chignon updo
At this year's Oscars ceremony, actress Zoe Saldana hit the red carpet with a beautiful curly chignon hairstyle. The updo was full of texture and the loose tendrils gave it a really romantic feel - which makes it the perfect hairstyle for when there's a wedding on the horizon!
With naturally curly hair, use a curling iron to round out any uneven or flat looking pieces of hair, and make sure you finish with plenty of hairspray to prevent a surprise frizz attack occurring when you least expect it. A strong hold, brushable product like Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray will protect your hair by sealing it against the elements.
2. Karlie Kloss's tousled waves
For a decidedly sultry look that is glamorous and somehow completely effortless looking at the same time, try Karlie Kloss's tousled waves from the 2015 Met Gala. The matte texture combined with a subtle smoky eye creates a sexy beauty look that doesn't seem try hard and won't overshadow the bachelorette.
Use a texturizing spray such as Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray to create loose, messy waves throughout the lengths of your hair. Apply it all over, then blow-dry your hair in twisted sections, holding each piece by the ends while you dry it completely.
3. Freida Pinto's sleek ponytail
If you don't have time to wash your hair before heading out, Freida Pinto's sleek ponytail is a great way to style dirty roots, and it looks really pulled together! With a sleek finish and a deep side part, this style pretty much speaks for itself, but it can also be worn with a glitzy accessory for even more of an A-list vibe.
After straightening your hair, add shine with a finishing spray before tying your pony. Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray will give your hair a glossy sheen while eliminating flyaways and preventing frizz.
4. Doutzen Kroes' slicked back hair
Wet look hair à la Doutzen Kroes might not be for the faint hearted, but for those of you who are up for it, a night out - especially a memorable one like a bachelorette party - is probably the best place to wear this style. It's daring, sexy and it looks great with a bold red lip. Just make sure you choose between emphasizing your eyes or your lips to keep the look balanced.
When applying hair gel, start with a quarter-sized amount and add more as needed. The exact amount all depends on how long and thick your hair is, so it's best to start small until you've done it a couple of times and know exactly how much to use.
5. Barbara Palvin's understated blowout
If you tend to take a less-is-more approach to your hair for any and every occasion, even a bachelorette party, keep it simple with an understated blowout like Barbara Palvin. This hairstyle has plenty of movement and volume through the lengths, and it's so versatile you can wear it with absolutely anything!
Apply a smoothing cream to damp hair before blow-drying. A product like Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream will not only protect your hair from heat damage, it will also smooth the cuticle as it dries, leaving you with a sleek, frizz-free finish.
6. Sleek center part
For an edgy look that's really easy to style, try Liya Kebede's sleek center part. As bachelorette party looks go, it's definitely a cool girl hairstyle, but when teamed with an understated makeup look and a glitzy dress it won't look try-hard or aloof. You can also team it with a headband to tie your whole look together.
To get the best middle part, use a tail comb to define the part when the hair is still slightly damp, then blow-dry it straight, using a paddle brush to guide each piece of hair. Once your hair is dry, use flat iron for any further straightening, and finish with plenty of hairspray to prevent frizz and flyaways.
7. Natasha Poly's sideswept waves
Glamorous, wavy hair is never a bad idea and seeing as a bachelorette party is a great reason to celebrate, why not go all-out like Natasha Poly with Hollywood's favorite hairstyle? This hairdo is about as A-list as it gets, and it looks great on everyone. As with slicked back hair, however, don't go overboard with your makeup because sideswept waves make a pretty big beauty statement all by themselves.
For waves that won't fall flat, make sure you clip each curl up to cool as soon as it comes off the iron. Combined with lashings of hairspray, this will set your strands into lasting curves that will look just as good at the end of the night as they did at the beginning!
8. Jennifer Lopez's vintage bob
Jennifer Lopez was seen at the Tony Awards recently with a vintage bob hairstyle and we think it's a great short hair option for a bachelorette party... or any other party! The polished curls, deep side part and glossy finish create timeless look that goes perfectly with anything off the shoulder. It's a glam look, but it's also kind of sweet so you can bring a little extra drama with your eye makeup if you want to.
Get a full bodied finish by applying a volume-enhancing product like Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse before blowdrying. Scrunch it evenly throughout, then rough dry your hair most of the way before using a round brush to smooth and curl the ends. To build even more height, flip your head upside down when the hair is almost completely dry and blast the roots.
9. Eva Longoria's messy chignon
For a cute, romantic look, try a messy chignon like Eva Longoria. With some loose pieces at the front, this updo creates a beautiful frame for the face that works really well with all kinds of different makeup looks. It's also one of those hairstyles that looks good on anyone and with any outfit, so if you're feeling indecisive, it could be a great last minute option.
To loosen the style after putting your hair up, slide your fingers underneath the hair on top and at the sides, then gently lift them up. If you have particularly fine hair, apply a volumizing hairspray like Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and backcomb the hair a little before securing the chignon.
10. Blake Lively's braided ponytail
If you want to make your face the focal point of your beauty look, try Blake Lively's braided ponytail. With all of the hair pulled back, there isn't anything to hide behind, or anything to detract from your amazing makeup! The pony itself has plenty of detail thanks to the airy braid, and the high placement gives it lots of movement which is perfect for dancing.
Add texture to the braid after securing it at the ends. Gently pull it out at the sides with your hands, and tease a few small pieces loose here and there. To make it look even more disheveled, spritz an old toothbrush with a strong hold hairspray, then use it to backcomb parts of the braid. When you're done, finish with an all-over mist of hairspray to lock in your style.
11. Julianne Moore's polished waves
For an understated, sophisticated bachelorette party 'do, channel your inner Oscar winner with Julianne Moore's glossy symmetrical waves. This hairstyle is polished, but it isn't too severe or prissy either. As you can see, it pairs beautifully with a classic little black dress, proving once again that less really is Moore. Is there anything this woman can't do?
Brush the hair through after curling it, then wind it around your forefinger to create a large, unified wave. When you're happy with the shape, set your hair with plenty of strong hold hairspray to prevent frizz and flyaways, and to keep the waves in place all night long.
12. Soo Joo Park's straight long bob
Smooth, stick straight hair like Soo Joo Park's always looks effortlessly styled, which makes it the perfect night out hairstyle. It's an easy look to recreate and it will transform every hair length from bobs to princess tresses. It's the ideal hairstyle for a bachelorette party because you can bring some added drama with your makeup, but the style itself won't upstage the bachelorette. Just make sure you use a thermal protectant from roots to ends in order to avoid unnecessary heat damage while straightening.
Use your flat iron as a finishing tool rather than relying on it to get all of the work done. Instead, blow-dry your hair as straight as you can with the help of a paddle brush, then use your flat iron for any further straightening once the hair is completely dry.
