I don't know what "hitting submit" means in the context of your application. But it is probably connecting to a URL for which the relative pathactually points to your CSS file, and your original URL does not do that.

<link href="../css/styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

try this instead:-

<link href="<%=request.getContextPath()%>/css/styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
