Hairstyles adorned with rhinestones

For New Year’s Eve, a wedding or a sophisticated cocktail party, get the Sissi look by adorning your hair with rhinestones. Chignons, fishtail braids, half ponytails… add a touch of sparkle to your hairstyles.

Mini rhinestones in a fishtail braid

For a romantic look, opt for a pretty two-strand braid adorned with mini rhinestone-studded hairpins spread out along the length of your hair. The must-have look? A fishtail braid created with two large strands (see our tutorial on fishtail braids )! Once the braid is held in place with an elasticated hair tie, run a toothbrush over it to give a floatier look to the hairstyle. Then, put in about ten mini rhinestones to create a sparkling line.

Large rhinestones adorning a low chignon

Planning to wear a low back dress? Enhance your outfit with a low chignon to showcase the nape of your neck. It could be rolled up in the style of a snail shell chignon for a slicked-back look or it could be more bohemian by gathering your locks together without tightening them too much for a floatier hairstyle . To hold it all in place, use a transparent elasticated hair tie and/or a few wavy hair grips. Once the whole hairstyle is held in place, add three or four rhinestone-studded hairpins at random to give a sophisticated touch to your hairstyle.

Rhinestone-studded stars in a half ponytail

Does the Sissi hairstyle make you feel like you’re dreaming? Forget ringlets, top knots and braids. Keep the spirit of the high half ponytail, but adorn it with a few rhinestones. The lengths can be straight or curly – you have carte blanche. Once tied up, start by selecting a strand from the ponytail to wrap it around the elasticated hair tie holding it up. Then, add a few hair slides or star hairpins all around the tied-up style. You can even put some in the half ponytail itself to finish off the whole look.
