Hairstyles That Complement Simple Earrings

If you’re more into a touch of simplicity and delicacy in regard to your feminine accessories, simple earrings are destined to be your go-to pop of jewelry. For some, large chandelier earrings paired with a statement necklace and rings on every finger is an everyday fashion choice; however, that’s not the move for everyone. The way we wear our hair can either draw the eye to the pieces or distract entirely from the earrings, and we definitely don’t want that. Changing up your hairstyle to complement your style varying from your work appearance to an evening date to your best friend’s wedding can be a fun way to show off your personal style.

To help you on your fashion journey, here are our favorite hairstyles that complement simple earrings.

Braided Hair


Braided hairstyles are perfect for the sleek fashionista who loves a clean pulled-back look that is also versatile. Pair with a set of sterling silver hoops, and you’re set whether you’re heading to work or out on a date.

High Ponytail

Ponytails have dominated the pop scene as of late, and for a good reason. If you’re not blessed with luscious locks, you can easily use a ponytail extension to fake the perfect hairdo. Finish with pearl earrings, and you’re on your way to your hot Saturday night date.

Slicked-Back Hair

No, we’re not talking about a hairdo like John Travolta sports in “Grease.” We’re aiming for red carpet chic here. This look is especially perfect if you’re on third-day hair (or fourth, or fifth—we won’t tell anyone!). Rub a little hair gel through your roots, brush back, and straighten the ends for a clean look with a pair of basic stud earrings, and you’re ready for the red carpet.


The topknot hairstyle is perfect for business days that turn into fun nights where you won’t have to worry about fussing with your hair all night long. The height of the style draws the eye up but doesn’t distract from your beauty. Check out this video for an easy tutorial on how to get the perfect topknot.

Space Buns


Space buns are all the rage in the festival scene. They’re easy, cute, and look good on everyone. This style is perfect for the Coachella-bound music lover who is aiming for style and functionality. (You need your hair to stay in place during all that dancing!) It’s also perfect for those who have multiple ear piercings to be able to show off their new tragus or conch piercings.

Ear Tucked

For the woman who prefers an easy style that looks as though it took forever but only took a few minutes, this is the one for you. Reach for a few bobby pins, hairspray, and hair gel. Using a flat bristle brush, style the hair slicked back behind the ears and secure with the bobby pins. Spray down the hair with a super-hold hairspray to ensure the style stays perfect all night. This will allow your earrings to pop through the hair but not be the center of attention.

Swept-Side Part

This style allows your face to stay framed by the hair but gives the jewelry space to shine as well. Curl the ends to give the hair texture and secure a low bun in the back, pulling a few strands out on one side. Allow the drama of the side part to take center stage and the accessories to add extra flair, never overbearing on your style.

Jewelry and hairstyles are meant to be fun! Enjoy playing around with different styles and don’t get too caught up in having perfectly done hair. You’ll be magnificent no matter what.
