Hot Prom Hairstyles for Spring

Prom Hairstyles

Prom Hairstyles are all about Bounce, Braids, Buns and Backcombing

Now that you’ve found the perfect gown for prom night, it’s time to start thinking about how you’ll wear your hair. When it comes to prom hairstyles, there are many gorgeous options to choose from. Here, we’ll highlight several sophisticated options, but before we delve into the various hair styling options, we’ll first offer a few tips to help you select a hairstyle that’s just right for prom night.

Choosing the Perfect Hairstyle

First, you’ll want to be sure the hairstyle you choose is complimentary to both the shape of your face and to the dress you’ve selected. For example, if you have a longer face shape, wearing a style with lots of height at the top will make the face appear longer. Those with heart shaped faces (and wider foreheads) often find bangs very flattering. As for the dress, consider its style and neckline in determining whether to select an elegant updo or to wear the hair down.

Next, consider your personality, too. Of course, the prom is a formal–and almost magical–event that will offer you fond memories for the rest of your life. However, you want to feel confident when you arrive, and selecting a style that is not too far removed from your personality will help.

Finally, being trendy is generally considered a great thing among young fashionistas, but all trends (including hairstyle trends) fade away. Believe it or not, you will look back on those prom pictures years from now; therefore, you may wish to consider a style that’s classic and timeless.

If you’re ever uncertain, you may want to do an impromptu test run at home, or you may want to schedule a free consultation with your stylist prior to the prom date. Scheduling a test run with your professional stylist will cost you, but if you have any anxiety after exhausting the first two options, the test run may help thwart any unwanted surprises.
