    Beauty: Top 5 Hairstyles for Prom

    Now that we’ve properly covered prom dress fashion with posts on both floor length and knee length gowns, we thought it might be time to round up some great prom hairstyles! While there are tons of different ways you can wear your hair and makeup, we do have a few favorite hair trends that are perfect for the big night. See our five picks below, then let us know how you’re planning to style your hair for prom in the comments below!


    YourHairstyleIdeas.com has just that – tons of ideas for hairstyles! Whether you’ve got long hair or short, want your hair up or down, they’ve got you covered with images and slideshows galore. The only downside is that they do not have instructions to go along with the photos. But the images can serve as inspiration for the brave girl or, if you’re having your hair professionally styled, you can take the photo with you to your hairstylist. We love this sideways braid with a loose piece of hair in the front.



    Another site that features tons of photos but not a lot of instruction is, of course, Pinterest! This classic half-up, half-down look is updated with a large bouffant.



    Here’s an easy but sleek look from About.com–a pony with hair wrapped around the elastic. To get this look, follow these simple instructions: Pull hair back into a ponytail, pull a pencil-thick piece of hair from the bottom of the pony, wrap hair around elastic while leaving two inches to pull down through the elastic and secure with a couple of bobby pins. Viola!



    Looking for something a bit more glam? This look–that’s actually quite easy to achieve!–reminds us of the complicated updos that often rocked the prom floors during the late ’90s and early ’00s. Seventeen advises blow-drying your hair straight, parting it on the side into pigtails and twisting each pony up until they coil against themselves. Then, use bobby pins to secure the coils to the back of your head. Spray to keep in place!


    Looking for an boho look to complement a romantic and/or whimsical gown? FamilyCircle.com recommends channeling Blake Lively, seen here with natural waves and tiny braids. How to do it: First, coax hair into soft, loose waves by blowing dry with mousse and a medium-barrel thermal round brush. Then, braid three or four small plaits and pin them under waves with bobby pins. They’ll be secure, yet move seamlessly with the rest of the hair.

    Which hairstyle is your favorite? Do you already have your prom ‘do picked out? Tell us about it in the comments!
