It is finally Spring. After a long winter slumber and long days spent in school, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and with that light comes Prom. The big dance reminds us that the end of the school year is coming and for many prom goers – the end of high school. Prom is about spending quality time with your fellow classmates, letting lose, dancing and looking your best.
After a long search of finding the perfect dress, it’s time to find the right hairstyle. You want a hairstyle that matches your dress, your personality and one that is practical for a night of dancing. So we’ve scoured the web and found a few trendy, practical and gorgeous hairstyles to impress your classmates and Instagram followers.
Low Messy Bun with Loose Strands
For some ladies, prom is all about spending a special night with their handsome beau. So for the night of romance, a soft romantic hairstyle is perfect. A low messy hairstyle curled and pinned in a bun with loose wavy strands will frame your face and show off your elegance with your gown. We love the center part with big waves but if your face shape isn’t ideal with a center part, opt for side-swept part with loose strands around your ears.
Voluminous Slicked Back Hair with Waves
Lots of ladies opt for updo’s for prom but we also love down dos for this occasion. This look is great for both long and shorter hair lengths too. Stealing this look right out of the style handbook of gorgeous and elegant celebs like Angelina Jolie and Kim Kardashian, a voluminous slicked back look allows you to show off your make-up and dress in the front, but your hair is still a show-stopper with loose tresses in the back.
This hairstyle combines romance and a down-do. It’s simple, sweet and absolutely stunning. You can probably complete this one at home on your own but it never hurts to have a professional go through and give you those flawless waves and down your hair in professional-strength hairspray. This hairstyle will work with every style of dress too!
Ponytails are often seen as a casual look but they can definitely be dressed up to be the perfect prom hairstyle. The best way to spruce up a ponytail is by adding volume at the crown and waves throughout the length of the ponytail. Whether you opt for a low-set or higher ponytail placement, adding volume will give you that touch of effortless beauty. If you want to step it up even more, add a tight braid or twist to your ponytail.
Half-Up Hairstyle with Accessory
Half-Up Half-Down hairstyles are perfect for prom. Most people who pull their hair back simply add a twist and some waves – and we love that look. But you can separate your half-up hairstyle from your friends by adding a statement hair accessory. It should match your dress first and foremost. If you have a bright colored, spring-inspired dress then opt for a floral accessory but if you’re wearing black sparkles then opt for a bejeweled accessory and if your dress is sweet and simple, then you can go with a bigger bolder accessory but if its more intricate, keep it simple like a small bow.
