By: Kenra Professional
The never-ending craze for “quiet luxury” started with the show “Succession” and evolved from there. In a world where everything seems to be getting louder and more flashy, there's certainly something to be said for quiet luxury. And that's certainly true when it comes to hairstyles. Quiet luxury hairstyles are all about understated elegance and sophistication. They're the perfect choice for those of us who want to look their best—without shouting about it.
Here are some quick tips for prepping your hair for creating the perfect quiet luxury hairstyle at home.
Get regular trims. The luxurious among us don’t settle for split ends. Regular trims will help to keep your hair healthy and looking its best. They will also help to remove some split ends, which can make your hair look dry and damaged.
Take care of your hair at home. There are a few things you can do to regularly take care of your hair at home, like using a leave-in conditioner, avoiding excessive heat styling, and protecting your hair from the sun.
Get a professional hairstyle/haircut. If you're looking for a special quiet luxury hairstyle, consider getting your hair done by a professional hairstylist. They can help you to choose the perfect hairstyle for your face shape and hair type, and they can also give you tips on how to style your hair at home.
Here, five hairstyles that correspond to the fashion craze—and how to get the look at home.
1. The sleek, wrapped ponytail
A sleek ponytail is a classic, timeless hairstyle that always looks polished and put together. To achieve this look, simply pull your hair back into a high, middle, or low ponytail (your choice) and secure it with a clear elastic band. Then, wrap a one-inch piece of hair around your ponytail for added sophistication. You can also purchase a braided hair headband in the same shade as your hair and wrap it around the ponytail for a special occasion look. You can also try adding a small, elegant hair tie or bow.
2. The low bun
The low bun is a popular look that has spanned decades! The low bun is another beautiful and versatile hairstyle that can be dressed up or down. To create a low bun, gather your hair at the nape of your neck and twist it into a bun. Secure it with bobby pins and brush out any flyaways. For a more undone look, apply thermal protection and use a straightener or curling iron to create soft waves in your hair before styling it into a bun.
3. Subtle beach waves
This is what quiet luxury looks like when it’s in resort mode. Beach waves are a great way to add effortless glamour to your hair. To create this look, simply scrunch your hair with a sea salt spray and let it air dry. For added texture, you can also use a curling iron to create loose waves. The key here is leaving the last inch or two of your hair uncurled at the ends for a done but undone effect. You can also use a straightening iron to straighten your ends after you curl them.
4. The chignon
A favorite of quiet luxury champion Sofia Richie, the chignon is a classic, elegant hairstyle that’s perfect for formal occasions like weddings—or even for your own wedding. To create a chignon, simply gather your hair into a high ponytail and twist it into a bun. Secure the bun with bobby pins and tuck any loose strands behind your ears. For a more polished look, use a straightener or curling iron to create smooth waves in your hair before styling it into a chignon.
5. The side braid
The great news about the side braid look is that it can be dressed up or down. You can wear it to work, the gym, or to a black-tie affair. To create a side braid, simply divide your hair into three sections and braid it, starting from the side of your head. Secure the braid with a clear elastic band and let it hang loose. For a more oomph to your side braid, use a curling iron to create smooth waves in your hair before braiding it. For more sleekness, use a straightening iron to smooth before braiding it.
These are just a few of the many quiet luxury hairstyles that you can try. With a little bit of effort, you can easily achieve a hairstyle that looks expensive without it being too flashy or obvious. So next time you're looking for a new hairstyle for day-to-day or an evening out? Consider opting for a quiet luxury look. You'll be sure to turn heads without saying a word.
