Perfect Prom Hairstyles

Goodbye February, hello March! Can you believe another month has already passed? The countdown to prom is officially on! Is your prom this month? Next? Well, whenever it is, you have to have the perfect hairstyle to go with your dress! When it comes to formal hairstyles, it really depends on your face shape, hair length/thickness, and of course the style of your gown! One of our very favorite prom styles is the loose curls with the top half pulled back away from your face. This is one of those styles that will never go out of style! It is the perfect combination of wearing your hair up and down. This type of hairstyle is perfect for dresses with thin straps, strapless, or anything on the more simple side. You can even play around with this style, adding in a braid or two! Or if you are not wanting to deal with your hair down, or maybe it does not always hold curl well, an updo will be your saving grace! A simple but messy updo can be so gorgeous for formal events! Especially if you have a dress with a high neck or halter, an updo helps keep your hair from overpowering the neckline of your dress. We love love love low messy updos for prom. They look so effortlessly stunning when they are done right. Just make sure when you’re at the salon or doing your hair no to let anything in your updo be pulled back too tightly. It is all about looking effortlessly pretty! Another fun updo to try out for prom is a party pony! Ponytails do not just have to be for hitting the gym or laying around the house, dress it up! Loose curls, a little teasing at the crown for some volume is all you need! Pull it back in a pony and take a few strand to wrap around and cover up your hair band. A pony tail can be the perfect accessory to a dress with a high boat neck, or a high neck as well! It’s time to start planning out your whole look, so have fun with it!
