15 Hairstyles to Show Off Your Statement Earrings
Statement earrings are big news, about as big as, well, they are. Investing in a knockout pair of ear adornments is just good sense since—if the SS '16 catwalks are anything to go by (they are)—we'll all be wearing them come spring.
Whether you choose a chandelier style, an oversize tassel or something altogether more architectural, the question is how on earth do you wear your hair? You need a style that lets the earrings do all the talking, but then you need to do something with your tresses! Enter the shows, celebrities and street style stars who have already nailed the trend and the hair to go with it.

A chignon with a wispy texture is a great way to show off an elaborate ear cuff like Katy Perry's. Re-create the texture by working V05 Give Me Texture Instant Oomph Powder (£2) through the roots and mid lengths before pinning up.
A dishevelled ponytail is the most modern way to juxtapose the decadence of a statement pair of earrings. Yasmin Sewell nails it.

Ashley Olsen takes it one step further than Gwyneth and pulls her hair back into a sleek ponytail which works especially well with the black blazer. To create that sleek, high-shine finish with Paul Mitchell Firm Style Shine and Freeze Super Spray (£21).
The pretty pale jade green earrings soften the overall look of Lily's severe side parting. The dark berry lip is the icing on the cake. Get the look with Topshop Lips (£8) in Inhibition.
Not everyone suits a modern sleek updo. If your go-to hair is usually more beachy than straight, why change it just for your earrings? Simply tuck most of the hair behind your ears. To work that texture spritz a little Unite Tricky Lite (£9) a hairspray-gel hybrid through air-dried hair.
At Emilio Pucci natural curls were defined before a pair of curly statement earrings finished off the look. Work a little Living Proof Curl Defining Styling Cream (£24) through damp hair.
