As you grow old, your hair changes. You have to adopt a different hairstyle with age. The perfect hairstyle is the one that keeps your hair in one place and also keeps them protected.
Usually, women are habitual of tucking their hair in a clip when in a rush. Though this keeps the hair in one place, the damage this does to your hair is inevitable.
Using simple accessories, we can create dozens of hairstyles within minutes best suited for working women. However, you should also consider the type of hair you have and the most important, your face shape.
White women are usually blessed with naturally thick hair. This is to their advantage as they can try almost every hairstyle and look glamorous on them. Let us explore some of the best short and long hairstyles for white women that can keep your hair protected and make you stand out as well.
The Best Hairstyle For White Women
The best hairstyle is the one that goes with your facial features and that is trendy. No matter if you have long or short hair, you can make the hairstyle in a way that goes with the trend.
However, braids and buns are never out of fashion. You can make the same regular three-strand braid in different ways to get a unique look every time. Know that white women’s hairstyles are a lot different from black women’s.
This is due to the hair texture and volume. While black women have to make a lot of tiny braids to keep their hair organized, white women do not have to make much effort.
A single braid at the back can be made within a minute that keeps white women’s hair organized. You can try following hairstyles whether you have long or short hair.
1. French Braids
Braids always look classy. Not only are they protective, but they also glow up your face. And when it comes to French braids, the hair looks even more organized.
Don’t worry if you have short hair. French braids look aesthetic on both long and short hair. Though you can turn French braid in different ways, this specific idea is to make two braids on both sides of your head by parting your hair from the center.
Nevertheless, this hairstyle goes with front bangs as well. Just start by partitioning your hair from the center. Keep the one side of your hair clipped while starting with a smaller section on the other side of your hair. Divide that small section into three equal parts and start making the braid as you normally do.
Once you make a cross, grab some hair from one of the sides and merge it with a strand. Continue adding strands all the way down until one side of your hair is completely wrapped in a French braid. Repeat the same steps on the other side. And Voila! You are ready with the most adorable hairstyle.
2. Twisted Updo
You can either create a regular updo or make use of a headband to take this hairstyle to another level. This hairstyle goes with both short and long hair. However, the cleanest look can be achieved with long hair.
Start by wearing a headband and make sure it is an elastic headband. Making a sideways partition before wearing the headband is even better. Using a few bobby pins, you can secure the headband in one place.
Now, take some hair from the front, twist them a bit, and then wrap it around the headband. Keep on wrapping small strands of hair until all your hair is wrapped in the headband. When you open your hair at the end of the day, you will be amazed to see the beautiful heatless waves.
3. High Bun
High buns are best to keep your hair together. If you feel like making your facial features more prominent, a high bun is a way to do this. It is the most versatile hairstyle that goes with almost every occasion. You will be able to work better with this hairstyle.
Making a high bun is as easy as making a ponytail. But instead of letting them go down, you have to wrap them completely with an elastic band. It is up to you to keep it loose or tight.
4. French Braids Into A High Bun
For this hairstyle, divide your hair into four to five sections. For each section, make a French braid and take it all the way to the back. Secure each braid with an elastic band.
Once you are done making all the braids, pull them together and tie them in a high bun. A loose high bun looks beautiful with this hairstyle. You can wear this hairstyle every day and even at parties.
5. Bubble Ponytail
Start by making a high ponytail at the back. By using another elastic band, secure the ponytail a few inches underneath the first one. Once done, pull the sides apart to create a little bubble. Now take another hair tie, and secure the ponytail again a few inches underneath. Continue the same step until you reach all the way down.
This hairstyle will create more bubbles if you have long hair. Nevertheless, it looks gorgeous on both short and long hair.
6. Double Dutch Braid Ponytail
This hairstyle not only takes all your hair away from the face but also looks gorgeous at the back. For making it, divide your hair into three sections. Make sure to keep the middle one the biggest portion, while the two others should be small and equal.
