A woman’s greatest asset is said to be her hair and her smile. Where a dentist is the artist for making that smile as radiant as it can be, the man at the salon with the scissors in hand is the greatest ally you have for ensuring your hair looks as perfect as the rest of you, no matter what the cut is. Of course, there are many hairstyles that simply are considered outdated as time goes by, slipping into the pages of hair art history. There are, on the other hand, certain looks, which are sleek and timeless, ensuring that even if you never change your haircut (which we highly recommend you do for novelty’s sake), you will never look like you’ve gotten off the wrong time travel station. You want to neither be too funky nor too dull and there is an array of ‘dos you can go for; unless, of course, you want to keep to the retro hippie look. At that point, you are just being you and throwing your fashion sense to the wind. Here we present 15 timeless hairstyles for women that never get out of style for all those, who want to be on the safe side when experimenting with new looks!
1. Pixie Dust
If you want to go short, almost with a boyish cut, then you can always pick the textured side-swept pixie cut that looks best when you put in some texturing spray before using a flat brush to blow-dry. It’s a sultry look that is too sweet for words. Hard to go wrong when you add some pixie to your style and you know it will never be out of date.
2. Blunt Sophistication
You can achieve this look as swiftly as a celebrity by adding bolder bangs that are cut with a blunt look in mind and paired with either wavy or pin-straight hair. It adds an air of glamour and sophistication, meaning you will always be the pearl in the crowd. Pearls are just so much intricately complex than a simple diamond, but with just as much milky glow.
3. Voluminous Waves
You may not have J.Lo’s stunningly perfect features, but you can most definitely have that glorious hair if you simply style it right. Big, voluminous waves cascading down to your chest means you can be the bombshell that’s got all the soft edges a feminine feline should. It’s the ultimate Hollywood look and it’s bound to stay in style for a very long time.
4. Regal Locks
Not sure if you noticed but the Duchess of Cambridge has a rather intriguing hairstyle complete with those enchanting waves and face-framing layers. Letting the edges curl inwards is a great way to ensure your hair looks like a timeless classic that looks sweet and sophisticated at the same time. It also knows no age, so that everyone from the young teenager to the elderly can sport this gorgeous twist to your natural wavy locks.
5. Sleek and Straight
You did it when you were still in high-school and you first got your hair straightener and you do it now. The middle-parted pin-straight hair is sleek, professional and doesn’t require much time and elaboration to make it just perfect. It’s great for casual or for an elegant night out. Most of all, it will never fail to be a classic timeless hairstyle. Fashions may change but your hair need not have to cause much of a fuss.
6. Wild Glam
Hair is meant to be played with, styled and composed into a piece of art we are proud to showcase; at least the hair on our heads. Working with your natural look is often the best path to take as it leaves little room for stress and allows for maximization of fashionable looks. If we think Beyoncé here, we know that’s the case particularly when you make your natural curls look voluminous, glamorous and downright wild and sexy. Long curly wild-looking hair is not only positively stunning but it’s one fashionable look not about to go out of style.
7. Wind Tousled
Shaggy long layered locks are great to leave all tousled but tastefully so. The best way is to straighten slightly and then let nature take its course. A slight side-part, a few highlights or lowlights and the look is absolutely spectacular. It may be trendy, and made so because of Jennifer Anniston’s “Rachel” style, but you can never go wrong if you go down this route.
8. Off to the Beach
Now, some of us are blessed with naturally slightly wavy locks that begin a few inches down from the roots and just twist and turn in a lovely manner. Personal experience has shown that should you run a quick comb through your hair before it begins to dry, the moisture will pull the hair up into larger waves that give you a soft beachy look. If your hair is prone to curling up rather nicely at the edges, this may be the perfect style for you to rock for a while.
9. Bob Frames
Shorter hair is sometimes harder to style the way you want but having it cut in a short bob with soft blunt bangs will allow the hair to frame the face beautifully. Slightly curl the end inwards and relish the reflection you see staring back from the mirror.
10. Add The Bangs
You can also go for fuller looking bangs that give a sweepingly sensational look to an otherwise heart or oval-shaped face, framing the features in just the right manner. Blow-dry the hair with a large round brush; roll in the ends and voila!
11. Poufy Fierce
Try as we might, if you are not a natural afro, you are not going to be able to achieve that look easily. However, if you are, the best route to take is to really let the glorious nature of your hair shine through by letting nature take its course. Spending some time in a salon with the right oils and dryer over your head might give you the same look Solange Knowles rocks these days. Best of all, it’s such a natural style, it’s timeless!
12. Straight as a Pin
We already know the straight look is a classic but what about adding wispy edges through long layers and whispy bangs that are slightly side-swept and perfectly soft and sophisticated. It’s an elegant look with a touch of sexy that is just enchanting.
13. Bob Graduation
How lovely did Victoria Beckham and then Rihanna look after they decided on sporting the shorter-in-the-back bobs with the voluminous straight and sleek look? Honestly, it’s a favorite of ours and most certainly a favorite in the fashion industry.
14. Luxe Locks
If you want the sexy but soft and feminine looks, longer heaver bangs with a side-part swooping over, especially coupled with layers beginning below the ears makes for one amazingly delectable look. Add a bit of shine and you are good to go!
15. Sweetly Shaggy
If you want a more individualistic look that has character, is trendy and won’t become obsolete anytime soon, the shaggy wavy design Jennifer Lawrence rocks here is just perfect. There is a punk rock hippie grunge look to the whole things while still looking classy; it’s a versatile look that can be paired with any type of outfit, be it daylight or evening.
