17. Wearing It Too Tight
On the flip side, wearing your hair too tight can also backfire. Don't get us wrong, there are plenty of women who can pull off the tight, slicked-back look while still looking elegant and fresh-faced. But like with most hairstyles, that all comes down to personality. If that's a look you enjoy, then keep on rocking it. If you tried it and feel like something is off, it just might not be the look for you.

Tight hairstyles are severe and put all the focus on your face. A more subtle look softens your face — think shorter layers falling around your cheeks, or tendrils coming down from your temples. Half-up, half-down hairstyles are also extremely flattering.
