If you have a lot of auburn and blond highlights in your hair, you've already got some serious loveliness going on in your mane. Auburn and blond are colors that work so well together, creating a rich, warm palette in your hair, nevermind the depth and dimension the highlights add. So you've got this fantastic color going on — now you just need to figure out a way to style it and really show it off.
Loose waves are always fun and fashionable, not to mention they work no matter what the occasion. Your blond and auburn color shows through the twists in your waves in a really lovely way. To get a loose-waves style that looks like you were born with it — would be nice, right? — create large curls around the ends of your hair, then go over the curls a couple of times with a paddle brush.
A mini-bouffant is a bit less predictable than other elegant styles, but it's a really fancy hairdo that works well to show off multicolored hair. To create the bouffant effect, tease around the top section of your hair — tease, tease and tease some more — to build up some volume. Rake the hair back, twist it and secure the twist vertically against the back of your head.
A braided bun is fun and funky. You see the color all around your head and also showing through the braid at the crown of your head. Put your hair into a high ponytail, braid down the ponytail hair, secure another elastic around the ends and wrap the braid around the top elastic. Slide bobby pins in around the outside of the bun to hold it in place. You can go with a more elegant, slicked-back bun style with a bit of gel, or get a more casual look by keeping it dry and "roughed up" looking by using pomade in place of gel.
If you're looking for a really funky, unique hairstyle, a wrapped bun is one worth trying out. Put your hair into a low ponytail and tuck in under the elastic a strip of fabric in the same length as your hair. Wrap your hair around the fabric, then form it into a bun shape against your head. Use bobby pins to secure the bun in place.
