Due to the pandemic, Zoom has become a major form of communication, replacing in-person meetings, dates, and family gatherings. Whether you work from home, are in a long-distance relationship, or will be meeting family over Zoom, it’s essential to look your best. You need some fail-proof hairstyles that will look amazing on Zoom, and we’re here to deliver.
Big Face-Framing Curls
If you’ve got thick, curly natural hair, you will look great with a style that showcases your larger-than-life mane. For super tight curls, you can try a wash n’ go. The style requires you to wash your hair, apply moisturizing products, air dry, and fluff. For larger curls, follow the same steps, being careful not to weigh your hair down by applying too much product.
To ensure that your afro looks good on Zoom, make sure that it frames your face and accentuates your facial features. To do that, you may need to trim a bit here and there.
Tip: Use a pick to fluff out your roots and achieve bigger hair.
Long, cascading curls add interest to your face and enhance your overall look. If you already have long hair, you can create large curls using a curling iron or a flat iron. We caution you to use a heat protectant product to keep damage at bay when using heat tools.
After you’re done curling your hair and your hair has cooled down, run your fingers through your hair to help the curls fall a bit. This style looks best when the curls fall in a way that contours to your face shape.
Spicy Pixie Cut
Yet another style that looks great on Zoom is the pixie cut. It keeps the focus on your face while playing up your features. If you weren’t aware, there are many styles of pixie cuts, and the one you choose will depend on your face shape and personal preferences.
However, regardless of the pixie cut style you choose, the hair on the sides should be shorter than the hair at the crown of your head. Also, if you have very thick hair, stay away from blunt pixies, as they can make your head look top-heavy. On the other hand, if you have thinner hair, a blunt cut with layers will give your hair more dimension.
Long and Sleek
Straight, sleek hair with a middle part looks great on Zoom. To get your hair as sleek as possible, blow-dry your clean hair until it’s almost completely straight. Then pass through small sections of hair with a flat iron and finish it with shine spray. We advise against passing the flat iron through any section more than once – this will reduce the chances of heat damage.
If straight styles bore you, consider adding a fun accessory to dress the style up a bit. Reach for a fun scarf or headband.
When you look and feel your best, you’ll have no problem hopping on a Zoom call. We hope that this article has inspired you to experiment with different hairstyles to find one that makes you look your best.
