Prom is undoubtedly the most special occasion in a girl’s life. She gets chance to show people who she really is and how she likes to express herself and elegantly show off her persona. There is no better way to do this then get a wonderful dress and complement it with gorgeous hair. If you are also attending a prom and want to shine like a star, try these special prom hairstyles.
Short-hair updo- if you have shorter hair than too you don’t need to worry about looking like the classy chic that a prom night demands. Simply try to comb your hair back and create a really messy look at the back with your beautiful tresses making for a tiara. Use a rhinestone headband to complement the look. Don’t forget to use some hair spray so that the mess keeps at its place and doesn’t ruin your look.
• Braided updo- Simply make two braids by parting your hair carefully and tuck them up like a folded cloth at the back of your head. Hold it tight with some pins and use a hair spray as well. If you have fringes than you would look superb with this simple style. If you add some more texture, leave some bangs in the front and make prom hairstyles that look classy from the back, sexy from the front.
• Sleek pony- Tired of updo prom hairstyles? Try a simple and sleek ponytail that gives as much life and bounce and highlights all your beautiful facial features. Dampen your hair and use a soft brush to detangle it carefully. Use a flat iron to straighten your hair and comb it all backwards. Take about the higher 3/4th part of your hair to make a ponytail and leave the rest hanging down elegantly. For some twist, you can hide the band with another braided bang that rolls around the base of the ponytail.
• Long hair Worn down- Another non-updo style Use a flat iron to straighten your hair and then roll the last few inches of the hair in some soft waves. Make sure they are waves, not curls. Then throw your hair to one shoulder and use give the finishing touch to the waves. Make sure you use some super strong hair spray here as well. This is one of the easy prom hairstyles and you won’t need much help as well. If you hair has been cut in layers below the jaw line, this style would rock!
• Messy Updo – This can be a great hairstyle if done the right way. Most of the times, we prefer only sleek and symmetrical hairstyles at a prom. However, if you wish to give it a twist, you can opt for a messy updo. Take the whole lengthy of your hair and leave some strands on the front and side which will be used later. When the bun is complete, you can use the longer strands you left earlier to create a few waves to your hair. Use a rose flower shaped accessory to complete the look.
Planning for such a special occasion takes time and effort if you want it to be perfect so don't wait until the last minute, start honing your ideas weeks, if not months in advance. Collect a few favorites, maybe as many as ten, and sleep on it and then whittle them down to 3 or 4. Then give them a try to see if they'll suit you.
