How To Get Prom Hair Ideas

Prom is here and you are all ready for that special day except for just one final thing: what do you do with your hair? There are so many ideas to choose from; how do you know which one works best for you and your hair type? Are you hoping for an elegant style or more of a sassy or wild look? Let's take a look at a few great options that can complete your prom look.

One of the most popular styles is the sophisticated up-do. It is elegant and beautiful and looks terrific with almost any dress style. This do can easily be done at home with just a few simple steps:

  1. Be sure to shampoo and condition your hair and blow dry it.
  2. Once your hair is completely dry, use a spritz of hairspray or apply holding lotion to strands of hair and roll the strands on large hot rollers.
  3. Once the hot curlers cool, gently take your hair down and keep chunked strands together and gently pull hair back into a loose ponytail.
  4. Then, gently take chunked pieces of hair and use bobby pins or clips to pin the hair to the crown of your head, alternating sides for a unique look.
  5. If you want bangs, you can part your hair to the side and leave slight strands down to accent your face.
  6. Finish off the style with a generous application of hair spray and even a spritz or two of body glitter to complete that elegant look.

Another popular style is the Simple Chignon. This is a soft bun with an elegant flair, and is preferred by many with medium to long hair.  It also works wonderfully for those with lots of curls.

  1. First, you will want to part your hair with either a side or center part (whichever you prefer).
  2. Then, pull your hair back into a low ponytail no higher than the base of your neck.
  3. Twist the ponytail and wrap the hair around the top of the ponytail. Secure tightly with a ponytail holder or small scrunchie.
  4. To complete this look, secure all loose hairs with bobby pins and spritz with hair spray for a secure hold.

Some simpler looks would be to simply straighten your hair and use a shining lotion for a glamorous look or use spiral curlers or a curling iron to make soft curls for a simple yet elegant look.

No matter what style you choose, you are sure to look beautiful on your very special prom day!
