Hairstyles for 27-Year-Olds


At the age of 27, a woman may be entering a transitional phase in her life. She may be finishing graduate school, advancing in her career or even starting a family. While 27-year-olds are taking steps toward a more mature lifestyle, they still are young, relatively carefree and can look forward to more adventure in life. Their hairstyle should reflect this attitude.

Messy Bun

  • The messy bun is less stiff than a regular bun, and its messiness gives it a carefree and edgy look. This style takes only seconds to create. Make a ponytail, but when you wrap the elastic band around your hair the final time, don't pull the ponytail through all the way. Leave it looped, and allow strands of hair to fall out freely.


  • Women may think that headbands are only for kids and teens, but this isn't the case. Start by choosing a headband that isn't brightly colored. Consider a simple black or tortoise-shell headband or one that matches your hair color. Use the headband to hold back bangs or the front layers of your hair. It's a simple, no-frills look, but it's still feminine and sophisticated.

Chic Ponytail

  • No matter the age, ponytails are a woman's easiest go-to hairstyle, but sometimes this hairstyle can seem a bit boring. The chic ponytail is easy to create, but adds a little sophistication. Pull your hair back into ponytail, but leave out a 1/2-inch strand of hair. After securing the rest of your hair with an elastic band, wrap the 1/2-inch strand around the ponytail, covering the elastic. Pin the strand into place to complete the look.

Hair Poof

  • For people with longer bangs, the hair poof creates a sleek look--as long as it's not decorated with brightly colored accessories. Gather your bangs and pin it back toward the top of your head. Use as many pins as needed to hold your hair in place. Use pins that are black or brown or that match your hair color to maintain a mature look.
