Kelly Clarkson is showing us such an awesome formal go-to hairstyle that you are just going to love doing! Her hair has been parted to the side which helps to frame her face and make the edges look softer. Longer hair in the front gives off the illusion that her face is thinner and longer. Her hair has been curled which gives her hair volume and bounce. Keep in mind that curls do drop throughout the day so you are going to need to style them tight. This will ensure that you still have waves at the end of the event even after the curls have dropped. You are going to need to apply a lot of hairspray to this look to ensure that the style stays in place for the whole event. You are going to need to cut your hair once every 4 weeks or so to ensure that your ends stay healthy.
When it comes to your makeup application, a smokey eye will be perfect for this hairstyle. You can add some false natural looking lashes to make your eyes pop more. Do not forget to add a bit of highlighter and contouring to help ensure that you get the perfect oval face shape. Finish off the look with a bold lip like Kelly has or you can go for a more natural color. The only downside to this hairstyle is that glasses will not suit this look. You are now ready for your night out on the town.
