All you have to do is simply make the impression of “just out of the beach’. You will have both a somewhat messy, casual and hot look.

Look Elegant

Not only an evening dress can make you look elegant, but also a right hairstyle will add its impact on the overall look. If you want to look elegant it is best preferred to have your hair up. Especially when your dress has a wide décolleté messy, curly or straight hair will spoil your look. All you have to do is either have a bun or topknot your hair. It’s up to you to choose between this two. If the profile of the evening is not that formal you can trick with a topknot, by letting some parts of your hair fall down, creating a slightly messy look. Or if the occasion is one of those that you should be more than elegant, a tight top knot or a low bun should be chosen.

Again you can use some accessories to emphasize your beauty.

The next advice for long hair styling is an ordinary one. When you are away on vacation and are looking for some adventures, when you are open to new acquaintances and flirts, waves and curls will come to your rescue. The sexy waves make every girl look original and easy to go.
