Hairstyle Tips for Prom
The prom is a major event for teens and it sure is important to make sure that every detail of your look is perfect, especially your prom hairstyle. Of course, you wouldn’t want to commit social suicide in school just because of your bad decision for one night, right? More importantly, when you look back to your prom photos a decade from now, you certainly want to feel pride and not shame.
Here are some of the hottest trends that you may do so you can easily stand out from the crowd and become the night’s star!
Working on the Curls
If you want to draw a little more attention to your face and hair rather than your clothing, curly locks are a good choice. One thing that you should keep in mind though is that, it is no longer the 80’s and frizz-curled hair is no longer in!
Strutting down the prom’s red carpet in curls is an option that works best for medium length and long hair. Using bigger rollers would do the trick as it adds body and volume to your hair. Forget about those rollers which create tighter curls. If your hair does not reach your shoulders, you can consider having the curls just at the tips. This will accentuate your femininity and will make sure that your hair will be perfectly tucked the entire night. For hair that is about shoulder length or longer, curling it all the way to the nape area would work best. That way, even if you go dancing during the prom, your hair stays neat and styled.
Who says it is a must to let your hair down? Putting your hair up on a bunch can still be very sophisticated and chic. The key is to not put too many accessories on your hair. Let the actual hairstyle be the accent and do not bother too much on wearing assorted clips, headband and others.
If you are opting for the classic French twist, make sure that it is not too tightly wound to achieve a sassy yet elegant look. If you do not want to look too formal, you can opt for the carefully bunched up tresses with some loose ends. This means that the hair is generally put up and held in place by pins but there are a few strands which come loose. This gives a softer, more feminine look.
Fabulous Short Hair
If you got short hair, do not immediately think that the prom calls for some hair extensions! What you need to do is add a little volume and make sure that every strand goes to the direction that you want it to. What’s the secret? Just a blow dryer and a roller hair brush. After washing and towel-drying your hair, grab a big size roller hair brush. The ones with finer bristles would make the job easier. Then, starting from the roots, blow dry your hair while doing an inward, circular motion. After you have finished, let it cool and add some hair product to hold it in shape.
