Every fashionista knows that accessories breathe life into any ensemble. It’s best to choose a pair of earrings that not only compliments your outfit, but your hairstyle and facial features, as well. With thousands of selections, it could be difficult to make sure that you pick the earrings that work best for you. Here are some simple tips to help you choose the perfect pair every time.

Let’s start with the basics. Your hair color plays a crucial role in choosing the right pair of earrings. Brunettes, blondes, and redheads can all pull off gold, platinum, and diamond pairs.

Brunettes should generally lean towards light colors like pastels or white in order to create a stunning contrast. For those looking for a pop of color, hues of orange bring out red undertones for a truly stunning look.

On the other hand, blondes should shy away from light colors, as it tends to wash them out. Vibrant colors like blue and pink compliment these fair-haired beauties perfectly! You can also try deeper shades of burgundy for a more eye-catching look.

Colors like red and orange get lost in the fiery mane of redheads. Cool tones of turquoise, green, purple, and blue will stand their own ground amongst your attention-grabbing locks.

Face shape also plays an important factor in the art of earring selection. When it comes to your face shape, a good rule to follow is to try to find earrings that oppose the face of your shape. For example, for a heart shaped face, try teardrop shaped earrings. For those with a square face, circular earrings or earrings with curves compliment you beautifully!

Now that you’re acquainted with the basics, here are the earrings that go great with that messy braid or tight up-do.

Long Hair

When you just want to let your hair blow in the wind, beautifully designed clustered earrings work best. Clustered earrings polish any look with effortless style and don’t get lost in your long tresses. Try colored diamonds like sapphires or onyx for a subtle yet edgy twist!

Short Hair

If you’re rocking a pixie cut, you can pull off just about any pair of earrings. From studs to hoops, this is the perfect hairstyle for any earring enthusiast. A personal favorite and current hot trend is the diamond stud star earrings. Why stop at the lobe when you can adorn most of your ear with a stylish, edgy look.DF1049-M2

Shoulder-Length Hair

For medium length hair, drop down earrings that fill the space between your ear and your shoulders complement this hairstyle nicely. You can choose the style that you like best, whether it’s a simple drop down with a ruby pendant on the bottom, or a pair of diamond encrusted hoops.


The classy look of a chignon or up-do works well with almost any style, but is best paired with a subtle drop earring or a nice vibrant colored stud to match the simple nature of the hairstyle. GPS-7W-M1

Half Up-Do

Since there is already so much going on with this fun hairstyle, it is best to choose a pair of simple earrings that won’t overpower the look. A pair of diamond or pearl studs would work best here!



For this asymmetrical look, try a pair of long earrings such as dangles or chandelier. They never fail to balance out this classic hairstyle.


 Side Braid

Since your hair is still adorning your face, studs may get lost and chandelier style earrings tend to look busy with the hairstyle. Something simplistic and chic work best with this casual hairstyle.  Try a pair of drop earrings or simple hoops! Going the minimalist route is sure to give you the edge you need. Often, the side braid is ethereal and romantic. Its soft nature can use a modern touch.DF1015-M2
