Femme Fatal Waves with Daring

Bombshell waves are a classic long hair choice for that special occasion.

Slicked Back and Spiky

Short hair can look amazing when slicked back. The sleek style exudes glamour and many different types of earrings can look incredible with this hairstyle. Our favourites are Ear Chain Earrings in either Silver or Yellow Gold or sparkling Threader Earrings, like the Silver Cultured Freshwater Pearl Thread-Through Earrings.

Middle Parting and Pearls

When thinking about how to match your earrings to different hairstyles, this is an absolute classic. With hair parted down the middle and tucked behind the ears, the piece de resistance is an elegant pearl. Try these 9ct White Gold Pearl and Diamond Twist Stud Earrings or these on-trend Sterling Silver Cultured Freshwater Pearl Marquise Earrings.

High Ponytail and Ear Cuffs

Pair your earrings with this sophisticated style. Piling your hair up into a high pony is perfect for parties, especially when you add some ear bling. Ear cuffs are fun and flirty, just like the hairstyle. Take a look at the Ania Haie Sterling Silver Modern Ear Cuff or the Sterling Silver Ridged Ear Cuff.

Structured Bob with Cubes

When choosing earrings to suit your bob, why not consider cube earrings? The Hollywood and 1940’s classic bob, has made a massive comeback and is super chic. The architectural shape of the hairstyle really suits the definitive square earring. Our choices are the 9ct Rose Gold Square Plain Stud Earrings or 9ct Yellow Gold Cubic Zirconia Single Stud Earrings.
