Ways to Wear

4 Looks We’re Dreaming of Wearing to the Beauty Salon

by Hannah Rose, Copywriter

The thought of finally feeling ‘fancy’ again is filling us with all kinds of excitement. From bouncy blow-dries to not-so-natural nails, we can’t wait to get back to glam. Remember beauty salons? The missed-so-much places that transform you? Well, those reservations are within reach and, like pretty much everyone, we’re really looking forward to it.

But, before you go through their doors, there’s something we need to sort…the outfits, of course. It’s not a case of just throwing on whatever and heading to your appointment. You’ll need something that complements your new glow up perfectly. So, we’ve rounded up 4 different looks that will do exactly that. Let’s just say, you’ll be walking out of the salon feeling on top of the world…

1. Perfectly Preppy with @cristinaastyles

Preppy styles may be everywhere right now but the question is – are they hanging up in your wardrobe ready to be taken to the salon? Well, the answer is, they certainly should be. As Christina shows, this preppy look is the cutest outfit to say ‘bye’ to split ends and ‘hello’ to fresh cuts in. Try styling a slouchy varsity sweat with a pleated tennis skirt and collared neckline for an on-trend look that doesn’t sacrifice the comfort we’re so used to. The addition of long socks and lace-up trainers is giving us all the cheerleader vibes. We love it.

2. Dressed Up Denim with @cammigooding_

A trip to the beauty salon is the perfect excuse to take your jeans on their very first outing. If you can remember what they are, that is. Everyone needs that post glow-up selfie for the ‘gram and this is the perfect outfit to take it in. No one needs to know you’ve been living in loungewear, makeup-less and with your hair in a bun for the last few months…We’re loving the way Cammi has combined smart with casual here. The check blazer and heeled boots give a glam touch to a simple vest and light-wash denim.

3. Statement Stripes with @edielibertyrose

If you’re like us and plan on sitting in that salon chair for a very long time (we need the full lot), then you’ll want an outfit that mixes style with comfort, right? Edie-Rose shows us exactly how to achieve that with this dress and trainers ensemble. Think printed dresses in stretchable-and-super-soft jersey fabrics that rival your loungewear and chunky trainers that even give your slippers a run for their money. As for the details, glam it up with gold hoops and a ruched shoulder bag.

4. Cool Co-ords with @being__her

Yep, you guessed it. You can use that first salon visit as a reason to finally show off that loungewear you’ve been (unwillingly) hiding at home. We’re talking about those statement sets that have racked up the likes on Insta but now deserve a place in the world. And, the salon is the perfect place for them. Like Hermon and Heroda, choose bright shades and cool prints that will make you stand out for all the right reasons. Think off-duty style that’s very on-trend. The best part? You don’t even have to change when you’re home because they’re so comfy.
