Hair styling tips

1. Use light bobby pins and hair ornaments to add an elegant touch to your hairstyle.

2. Try easy and stylish confirmation hairstyles that go well with long hair.

Choice of hairstyle

  • Consider your dress style and the theme of the day.
  • Consider your personal style and face shape.

When choosing the right hairstyle for your confirmation, it is important to take several factors into consideration. Start by considering the style of dress you have chosen, as well as the theme of the day. For example, if you have a romantic lace dress, a loose braid or curls can be a good bet for a hairstyle.

Next, it's important to think about your personal style and face shape. If you normally wear your hair down or have long hair, it can be beautiful with an elegant bun or updo. Feel free to add some hair decorations such as flowers or discreet hairpins for extra elegance.

Also remember to choose a hairstyle that is easy for yourself or your friends/family to do - so you don't get stressed in the run up to confirmation day!

How to make an elegant bun?

Step-by-step guide to creating a beautiful, elegant bun: Start with light waves in your long hair to create volume. Gather the hair into a low ponytail and carefully twist it around itself. Secure it with bobby pins and use the right products like hairspray to ensure all-day hold. Add a touch of elegance by decorating the tuber with flowers or pearls.

Use the right products to ensure durability throughout the day.

Use the right products to ensure durability: Before you start, apply a styling product like mousse or texture spray to your wet hair for extra volume and hold. After the setup is complete, gently spray a little hairspray over the bun to keep it in place throughout the day. Also make sure you have some spare bobby pins on hand so you can easily adjust and fix your elegant confirmation hairstyle as needed.

Add accessories such as flowers or pearls for extra elegance: For even more glamor you can add beautiful accessories to your bun. Use small flowers or pearls placed strategically around the tuber for a sophisticated touch. This will give your hairstyle a unique expression and make you the center of attention on your big day - confirmation!

Braids for confirmation hair

Braids are a popular and elegant hairstyle for confirmation hair. They can add a romantic and bohemian vibe to your look. There are many different types of braids that you can try so that you can find the perfect style that suits your personality and dress.

One of the most classic braids is the French braid. This braid starts at the hairline and continues down the length of the hair. It's a beautiful and timeless style that can be a great way to style your long hair. You can choose to do a single French braid in the middle of the hair or do two French braids on either side of the head for a more bohemian look.

If you want to add a little extra detail to your hairstyle, try adding small flowers, pearls or hairpins along the braid. This will give a unique and personal touch to your confirmation hairstyle.

Another popular braid is the herringbone braid. This braid is known for its elegant and refined appearance. The herringbone braid can be a bit more advanced to make, but the result is worth working for. This braid can be done in different ways, either as a traditional herringbone braid or as a side-swept herringbone braid. Both styles will add a sophisticated and elegant touch to your confirmation look.

If you prefer a more relaxed and bohemian style, try a loose braid or a Dutch braid. These hairstyles are a bit more relaxed and add a touch of lightness to your look. You can also add some flowers or hair ornaments to give your braid an extra twist.

Whatever hairstyle you choose, it is important to use the right products to achieve the best result. Use a good hairspray or styling product to keep the hairstyle in place throughout the day. You can also use a heat protectant spray if you use heat tools to style your hair.

Makeup tips

Choosing a makeup look: When you choose your makeup look for the confirmation, it is important to take into account your personal style and the color of the dress. A neutral eye shadow with a flattering lip color can create an elegant and sophisticated look.

How to apply natural makeup: Start by preparing your skin by cleansing and moisturizing it. Then use a light foundation or BB cream to achieve an even look. Add a little blush to the cheeks and then apply a natural lipstick or lip gloss for a fresh breath.

Focus on the eyes: The eyes can be the central point of your confirmation look. Choose a mascara that gives fullness and length to the lashes, and use eyeliner or eye shadow in colors that complement your eyes. Remember to also shape your brows for a well-groomed look.

Choice of makeup look

Explore different makeup looks and choose one that suits your personality and style. It's important to feel comfortable in the makeup you choose, so take your time to find the right one.

Match your choice of makeup look to your dress and hair color to create a harmonious look. If you have a light dress and blonde hair, you can focus on soft pastel colors in your makeup. On the other hand, if you have a dark dress and dark hair, consider more intense colors to highlight your features.

How to apply natural makeup

Prepare your skin by applying moisturizer. Use a light foundation or BB cream for a natural look. Use neutral colors on eyes and lips.
