10 Stunning Earrings For Long Hair

Matching stunning earrings to certain hair types is a challenging feat.  Earrings play a central role in completing an outfit as well as bringing plenty of attention to your face and hair.  So, it's important to invest the time and effort in choosing an expressive piece that will really empower the look that you're aspiring to create.

When considering earrings for longer hair, always opt for longer pieces.  Longer, larger fine jewelry pieces stand a better chance at accentuating or complimenting certain outfits.  Comparatively, pieces like studs or ball shaped earrings aren't a great choice, as they tend to be hidden when worn with your hair down. Additionally, choose statement pieces that contain circles or rectangles.  These shapes contrast with the contour of the hair and work well whether your hair is slicked, half up or tucked. Keeping these simple tips in mind, here are 10 stunning earrings we think will look great with longer locks.
