    Head-Turning Long Prom Hairstyles

    There are limited times in your life to become absolutely stunning . . . enjoy your prom!

    Prom is no doubt the biggest event of your junior and senior year, so obviously you need to look your very best – especially since there will be a million photographs splashed all over Facebook!  If you have long hair, you have plenty of styling options available to you, from romantic up-dos to long, tantalizing beachy waves.

    The best place to start when considering your prom hairstyle is to take a look at your dress. We know prom is first and foremost about the dress. If your dress is ruffly and full of detail, your hairstyle should be more sleek and subdued to make the dress the statement piece. You don’t want your dress and hair to be fighting it out for attention. If there is too much going on with both your dress and your hair, you will get lost in the all details.

    A seriously impressive long hairstyle to wear at this years prom, is any one of the hundreds of  intricate braided hairstyles available.  Unless you have mastered braiding, maybe by modeling with your best girlfriends, you should twirl on into your favorite salon for a one-of-a-kind killer braid!  (You may even have a Braid Bar in your area.) This look has a bit of Taylor Swift and a bit of Katniss of The Hunger Games going on, and it would compliment just about any prom dress style . . . pretty, pretty, pretty!

    If you prefer a more sleek, less complicated long hair look, a simple up-swept ponytail like this one is elegant and sophisticated. Healthy, shiny hair with a sparkly pin or two, makes this style beautiful.  A few at-home deep conditioning treatments the month before the big night, will add moisture, body and shine to your hair.  I’m loving Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque and Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment, they have both have fabulous, immediate results you will love.

    One thing to consider when choosing your prom hairstyle is the weather. If your long hair tends to get frizzy or droopy when it’s humid outside, don’t choose a complicated hairstyle that requires lots of product to keep it in tack.  A style that forces your hair into a look that will fall apart when it rains or gets humid, isn’t going to go the distance for the evening.   You will be happier with a hairstyle that tames your tresses in a low, loose bun  like Carrie Underwood, or a sophisticated ponytail like Gwynneth Paltrow.

    So, when choosing which hairstyle to wear for prom, these are our suggestions for you to keep in mind.  Try to keep a consistent balance between the style of your dress and your hairstyle. Wear a hairstyle you feel comfortable with and one that reflects your personality. If you aren’t comfortable in your hairstyle, you’ll be worried about it all night and you won’t have fun on this most special occasion. Make any salon appointments early, they fill up quickly come prom weekend and you don’t want to miss getting the long prom hairstyle you want!
