Formal IT Looks

In need of some inspiration for an upcoming special occasion or formal event? We've got you covered with 9 stunning hair ideas to finish off your look and get you looking red carpet ready for your special day!


Let your hair down and show off your bouncy, bubbly side! Your hair will do the talking with classic curls that are sure to party the night away with you. A look best matched with a soft, day time smoky eye and a taupe lip. These curls are as fun as they are timeless and a perfect go to for formal.


Think glossy, soft, straight hair. Perfect for a sleek, figure hugging silk dress. This hairstyle won’t take the attention away, but rather add to the dazzle. We recommend pairing with a bold lip and winged liner for the ultimate head turning allure.


Feeling inspired by the glitz and glam of the red carpet for your special night? Nothing says ultimate glamour than perfectly set waves. We love to accentuate the features with contour, highlight and lashes to really set off this look. You will be left feeling like a true Hollywood celebrity as you grace your formal!


The adored, tousled texture is a summer style essential. For an effortless look that will take your breath away we recommend the beachy waves. Wanting to add a little something extra – why not pull the front back with a braid or twist? We love this style paired with warm bronze hues with a neutral lip. The perfect gypsy, beach goddess ready for the celebration she has worked hard to deserve.


Perfect for that classic, made up look! This sleek and sophisticated up style will have you feeling like Cinderella off to the ball. Finish this stylish elegance with a bold lip and lashes for the ultimate classic beauty.


This stunning, undone updo will have you vibe the sand between your toes as you dance all night long. We love this look paired with soft peachy and pink hues for a more romantic, boho appeal.


This low twisted bun is what textured hair dreams are made of! We are loving the lived-in yet chic feel. Accessorize with a hairvine for extra bling and pair with contour, highlight and lashes to really accentuate your features. You will be sure to turn heads and leave a lasting impression!


Let’s be real for a second – We live in Australia and Australia is HOT!! A low pony is the perfect hairstyle for formal and is so versatile it looks incredible with any dress. Low and sleek will have you feeling like a polished and poised Queen. Textured and opulent low pony should have you embracing your pleasure-seeking goddess without the worry of sweating your makeup off. We love a red lip and lashes to really make your features pop and have you ready to tackle the night with your game face on.


With celebs like Chrissy Teigen, Gigi Hadid and Ariana Grande leading the way in the high pony trend, how could you not want to follow suit? This style looks incredible with a high neckline and making those eyes pop by adding colour and glitter to your lid! Then, just like that you are ready to shine like the star you are!
