Hairstyles for the Ball Season in Vienna

by Ossig hairstyle & beauty

Hairstyles are all about fantasy for this year’s ball, whether put up in beautiful waves or curls, braided or straight. There are many ways to make the hairstyles look stylish by way of a noble knot or playful strands falling loose around the face to name but a few.
The bleeding of effects with clearly defined elements make the style appear delicate, fresh and elegant. Together with the right make-over and of course the dress, every woman will be made to feel beautiful/special for an unforgettable evening.
