Pictures of updos for prom

You have seen movies where a high school nobody is given a shot at fame and ends up being the belle of the ball at her prom. Simply comparing her previously drab and miserably mousy getup to her post-makeover aura is enough to let you know which sadly misguided fashion advice you should avoid. Prom is no place for a fashion faux pas, so you better pay close attention to these sophisticated styles to ensure you’ve got a look that doesn’t make you look like the “before” picture in a makeover movie. Caring for long locks pays off when you have a formal occasion to show off how you can expertly style your enviably long hair. Go totally formal with an updo which you can style with haphazardly chic spiked, crimped waterfall-style locks or intricate twist and turns. You can even add some embellishments like fresh flowers, ribbons or a floral clip or two. For a more romantic and laid back look, strategically placed braids can really give loose locks a pulled-together look for this special occasion. Remember, your prom pictures are something you will be looking back at for years to come. It does not matter if you choose to don the trendiest style, as long as the style you choose makes you feel fabulous and confident! Here are lots more pictures of updos suitable for proms as well as weddings. They are young funky hairstyles that are fabulous to show off your personality and artistic side. Most incorporate hair accessories to give them personality. Look in our Beauty section under accessories for lots of great ideas to incorporate into your hairstyle.
