Formal hair styles come in various shapes, cuts, and styles. Earlier formal hair styles meant straight backed hair with no fringes or bangs for men, and a neat layered look or bun for women. However, days have changed and now we see men sporting long wavy hair and women looking pretty in modern bobs. Also, hair stylists are coming up with new and innovative looks for formal events.
