One thing to love about college is its diversity. Entering college is like a free pass allowing you to be whoever you want to be, whether that means recreating yourself or just standing firm in who you’ve always been. As a woman entering college, you have the opportunity to explore multiple sides of fashion, because in an environment with a variety of activities and groups, there are also numerous trends to try out!
Something important to keep in mind ladies is that fashion is not only clothing! Sure, shoes and accessories are also a large part of one’s wardrobe, but let’s not forget the fashion accessory you were born with, your hair.
Stroll through a college campus and you’ll easily begin to pick up on the girl’s trends for hairstyles. Your hair can be such a fun tool to take advantage of because the options for styling it are many. Whether you have short, long, curly, or straight hair, the possibilities for simple-to-create and fun-to-look-at hair are endless.
Style 1: The top-knot. Also known as a quick messy bun thrown on top of your head. Any girl with the
right length of hair can pull this look off and it is a very popular style around college campuses. Top-knots are easy to do and maintain. It keeps hair out of your face for your classes and studies, but also compliments many outfits, giving you a bohemian look or even a sophisticated, intellectual look depending on outfit choice. This bun will give you a variety of looks without even trying!
Style 2: The fishtail braid. This style takes braids to a whole new level of sleek. Similar to a French braid, it will be easy to find a girlfriend who can teach you how to wrap your hair up in this cool design. This look is great because it can have a very natural, beachy look. It compliments classy and casual styles, simply revealing the beauty of a woman’s face and hair. Also, once you take this braid out you’ll have an entire new hairstyle of long flowing waves!
Style 3: The pixie cut. This style is for the ladies who don’t cry after getting a semi-drastic haircut. Short hair is quickly becoming more popular. It is a style that makes women unique while complimenting shape face and features. I have had short hair for most my life and it’s great, especially at college, because it doesn’t take too much upkeep, and you can still experiment with looks from curly to messy to fauxhawk to the classic “every hair in place” like the lovely Emma Watson. Short hair is a must if you’re up for the challenge because it adds to the adventure!
A woman’s hair is a beautiful compliment to who she is so never be afraid to try new things! Whether it be with cuts, colors, or styles, your hair is one of the greatest fashion accessories you’ll ever have so take advantage of it in college ladies!
