You have an important event to attend this weekend. You bought the perfect dress, you decided how to style your hair but you have a big dilemma: what earrings to match with your hairstyle? Well, not anymore! We compiled a list of tips on choosing the right earrings for your hairstyle.

Choose Earrings According to Your Face Shape

It's important to keep in mind that you should always choose your earrings according to your face shape, because this is a key factor in looking flawless. If you have a round face, you should avoid wearing circular hoop earrings because they will make your face look even rounder. For those of you with very long faces, you should not go for straight bars or long chain drops because they will create a long vertical line along the face you should stay away from.

Best Earrings for Various Hairstyles

Here is a list with our tips when it comes to matching different hairstyles to beautiful earrings. Enjoy your reading, take some notes and you will never go wrong from now on!

Stylish Earrings for Updos

Earrings For Elegant Updos

Updos simply scream for a pair of beautiful earrings. Whether you attend a wedding, a ball or a formal party, you should choose a beautiful pair of long chandelier earrings or, if you have a heftier budget, you should go for a exquisite pair of diamond earrings. You will look wonderful and you will certainly be glowing!


If you decide to go for a modern updo, you should choose modern earrings, such as geometric shaped ones. Otherwise, if you decide to rock a classic look, opt for a vintage pair of earrings as this way you cannot go wrong!

Best Earrings for Short Hairstyles

Short hairstyles leave your earlobes exposed and provide the perfect setting for earrings. So, you should keep a balance between your haircut and the type of earrings worn. Because a pair of bold earrings can distract the viewers from both your face and the fine lines of your haircut, our suggestion would be to keep it subtle. Thus, for a classic look, you will never make a faux pas with simple pearl stud earrings.


What Earrings for Medium Hairstyles

When your hair length is between your chin and shoulders, you can wear almost any kind of earrings. You can choose to be bold or delicate, depending on the occasion. However, if you want your earrings to stand out and look more prominent, you should tug your hair behind an ear. If you opted for a bob and want for your hair to look longer, you should go for earrings that peek out just below the cutting line.

Best Earrings for Straight and Curly Hair

Whether your tresses are straight or curly, remember that you should find earrings that are just the opposite of your hair texture. For example, curly hair would take away the beauty of curvy earrings. However, should you opt for straight lines and smooth surfaces, you will not go wrong. For those of you with straight hair, you should start wearing more often chandelier earrings or fancy dangles. You will look lovely!


Earrings for Long Hair

Let's face it, wearing earrings with long hair can be tricky because long hair can diminish their beauty. Here's a great tip when choosing the right earrings for your hairstyle: opt for a hairstyle that helps you keep the hair out of your face and behind the ears. This way, your fave pieces of jewelry will not get tangled up in your 'mane'.


If you choose to wear your hair down, just pick bold earrings that have a smooth surface, such as art glass or dangling ones, because they will not snag the hair.

Color Matching Earrings and Hair 

When choosing the right earrings for your hairstyle be sure to pay attention to your needs and choose the color of the gemstone to match your eye color or even your hair shade. Let's just imagine a beautiful green-eyed woman wearing emerald earrings. They will definitely look amazing on her and will make her eyes stand out. Green is also a great color for ginger haired women, together with blue-colored stones.


On the other hand, beautiful blondies will dazzle rocking lighter colors such as turquoise, quartz, diamonds or moonstones while the mysterious brunette will shine when sporting bright colored earrings featuring stones such as amethyst, rubies, opals or sapphires.
