5 Tips To Look Stylish In A Mask

When reflecting on fashion and style history, we are grateful that some trends were just passing fads. Occasionally, shoulder pads, frosted tips, and popped collars will make zombie-like appearances on modern runways, but most outdated trends stay where they belong: In the past. This is all to say that we hope masks will soon join them. However, for now, the mask is the most sought-after, must-have, can't-leave-the-house-without-it accessory. We have no choice but to integrate it into our wardrobe, so why not make it look as chic as possible? Here are 5 tips on how to look stylish in a mask. 

Match It

The most crucial style tip to consider when dressing up a mask is to make it look intentional. It's not an afterthought but rather a piece that ties the outfit together. Try to match your mask to your style choices so that it becomes an accessory that completes the look. You can also try matching your mask to your other accessories such as jewelry or a hat. When incorporating a hat, our stylists suggest using a deep-side part to give your face more exposure (instead of bogging it down with your hat, hair, and a mask). Use styling mousse and pins to keep the hair and cap in place! 

Style Your Hair

When you put a bit of effort into managing and perfecting your tresses, it tends to distract from the face covering. Our expert stylists suggest investing in a professional styler that can both straighten your locks and create luscious waves. If you go for a sleeker, straighter vibe, make sure to pump up the volume where you can. A root-lift spray is an awesome tool that plumps up straight strands.

Say It With Your Eyes

 With most of your face covered by a mask, you have a limited amount of ways to get creative with your makeup. Putting some extra time into your eye makeup routine will make a huge difference. They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, so why not spice things up a bit? Grab a funky eyeshadow or test out a winged-tip. Our stylists agree that mascara is a must. And if you really want to show off your gaze, you can throw your hair into a chic power pony so that your eyes get all the attention. 

Half-Up Hair Works Best

When it comes to utility, a half-up style works best. Half-up looks allow the mask to sit comfortably without disrupting your look. They give you enough room to ensure that your mask straps remain securely in place, which is important! The secret to a perfect half-up hairstyle is to split your tresses at the nape of your neck. When securing the ponytail, take a section of your locks and wrap it around the elastic for a polished pony. Straighten or curl your strands after you've secured your hair in an elastic and lightly spritz your finisher. 

Keep It Simple

It's tempting to buy those cute masks adorned with avocados or kittens; however, they only look great with a handful of outfits. When selecting your masks, because you probably are changing them often anyway, go for the ones with a simple design. The rules of fashion have always deemed all-black to be a safe bet; however, most solid colors work well with various looks. If you're trying to get a little bit more dressed up, try a simple mask with embellishments. Wearing a more refined mask allows you to get more creative in accessorizing, choosing makeup, and styling your hair.
