Wear them in Fishtail braid for a sweet and girly look like how Yuqi from (G)I-DLE does. Leave some wavy strands to contour your face shape and also to look more feminine.

Dv Tip: Girls with chubbier faces might want to avoid perming tight curls, ask your stylist to curl them looser.

Wear them in a ponytail

To avoid looking too “young”, take a leaf out of Yuna Kim’s style book and consider a bold makeup look.

DV Tip: We recommend to pair it with mauve or red eye shadows and nude rose lip colour to look extra stylish.

Get above eyebrow bangs

Don’t worry if your hair isn’t long enough for the above styles, mid-length hair with above eyebrow bangs make a chic combination too.

DV Tip: Since the curls already have volume, remember to tell your stylist to keep the bangs light. Above the brow bangs will complement this look best.
