We’d all love to go home and have some quality time to get glam before a night out. But, that’s not always real life. So we might as well make the best of it! Plan ahead and forget about needing time to change your hairstyle later on and be ready to go in the a.m. with these 10 gorgeous day to night hairstyles.
1. Voluminous Waves
If you’ve got long, layered hair, some beautiful waves with volume is a great day to night hairstyle. It’s a beautiful daytime look and totally glam for night. Use a big barrel curling iron like Hot Tools 1 1/4 to 1/12 inch gold barrel curling iron to get the look.
2. Vintage Waves
Vintage finger waves never go out of style. They’re subtle yet sexy, and a fab look day or night. Check out this finger waves YouTube tutorial for some tips on how to get this style.
3. Voluminous Updo
Who says an updo has to be modest? Add some sass to your updo with some serious volume at the crown. It’s still ladylike for daytime, but has a totally formal vibe for evening, too. Try a Bumpit for added volume or some root boost spray like Tigi Catwalk to get the look.
4. Half Up Half Down and Curled
A half up half down hairstyle is the perfect compromise. It’s out of your face for daytime duty, yet formal enough to be nighttime ready. You’ll need some great bobby pins, so try some embellished ones like these Berry “Bird” Bobby pins to add a bit of flair to your hair.
5. Shiny Bedhead Hair
It was no fuss, no muss for Sandra Bullock at the 57th annual BFI London Film Festival Gravity Premiere. Blow dry hair straight, and then run your fingers through it to create an “undone” look. This style is all about the shine, so make sure to add some super shine serum like Paul Mitchell Gloss Drops.
6. Perfectly Parted
Oftentimes, less is more, as seen on Cate Blanchett with this gorgeous, simple hairstyle at the 51st Annual New York Film Festival Gala. To get the look, twist a flat iron at the ends for a bit of wave and flair.
7. Messy Bun
The messy bun is one surprising hairstyle that does double duty. It’s approachable enough to be laid back casual for daytime, and unfussy yet cute for nighttime. Eva Longoria rocked this look at the2013 NCLA Alma Awards. Use a hair donut to get the look.
8. Brushed Waves and a Deep Part
A deep side part is very femme fatale and, with these brushed out shiny waves, it’s quite the sultry look. Use a 1 1/2-inch barrel curling iron, then brush out curls using a paddle brush to get the look. Finish it off with some shine spray like Artec Textureline Shine Spray.
9. Natural Curls Galore
If you’ve got natural curls, why not embrace them?! This look on Chaley Rose is full of personality. Use a diffuser blow dryer attachment to get the most bounce out of your curls.
10. Fun Highlights
If you’ve got weekend plans, some highlights like these red stripes are fun to try. You can easily DIY this look with some hair chalk or temporary hair color like Streekers.
