    Tress Up Your Homecoming Hairstyles with these Hot Looks

    Back to school shopping, bagged lunches, and homework all mean one thing…school is in session! While note taking and school bells can be a drag, one thing we love about this time of year is Homecoming hairstyles (and pumpkin spice lattes!) We imagine you’ve already got that perfect dress picked out for the big night (or you at least have it in mind.) And other essentials like those show-stopping shoes and clutch can be shopped for later. But, the hair! Your hair is something you need to think about now. Make time to try out a few different looks now, so you know you will get the look you want, with no added stress on the day of the ball.  Get tressed up and try some of the hottest hairstyles this season!

    All Worked Up: Keep it simple with a carefree messy style.

    Hair Type: This natural style is ideal for mostly straight or wavy hair as well as fine to medium hair texture.

    Style: Create an off center part. Emulsify texture creme between your palms and scrunch and tousle hair. Allow to air dry.

    The Dress: This effortless hairstyle pairs well with a flowy dress or boho inspired look. For a playful twist, pair this relaxed style with dramatic, chunky jewelry.

    Product: Bb Texture Creme ($28)

    Tied in Knots: Go flirty with a fun Top Knot Homecoming Hairstyle

    Hair Type: This versatile look works well with straight, wavy, and curly hair, and is easiest to achieve on fine to medium textures. For some, this is easier to achieve on day-old hair.

    Style: Flip your head upside down and collect hair in a pony at the top of your head. Use a comb to smooth. Tease the ends and wrap around the base of the pony, securing with pins. Finish with a strong hold hairspray.

    The Dress: This retro inspired hairstyle pairs well with a girly dress that’s short and sweet. Stand out with pastel colors.

    Product: Paul Mitchell Extra Body Hairspray ($16)

    Top it Off: Finish off your look with a pretty barrette.

    Hair Type: Dress up any hair type with a bit of bling.

    Style: Whether you wear your hair with soft waves or chicly smooth, a barrette is an easy way to add a touch of sparkle to your do. Get this casual tousled look by braiding slightly damp hair and letting it air dry. Gently pull fingers through just to separate and give it a shake upside down to add extra fullness.

    The Dress: Pair your sparkle with a little lace for a look that’s sweet and totally romantic.

    Homecoming hairstyle braids

    Take Sides: Go trendy with a hip side braid

    Hair Type: While this look works for finer textures, it’s also a great way to get control of thick hair.

    Style: Apply gloss drops to dry hair for smoothness and control. Create a side part and section off the portion in front of the ear on the smaller side. Divide section into three pieces and create a braid. After you tie the end with a small rubber band, sweep it across to your opposite ear and incorporate it into another braid with the remaining hair. Pin the front pieces off the face if necessary.

    The Dress: This style is ideal for a look that’s fashion forward. Complete the style with a funky pair of wedges or boldly patterned tights.

    Product: Paul Mitchell Gloss Drops ($12

    If Looks Could Kill: Short Homecoming Hairstyles

    Homecoming Hairstyle Recommendations for Short Hair

    Christine Asks:

    I want to find a new short homecoming hairstyle. I can find plenty of long homecoming hairstyle pictures but not enough short hair style pictures. I’m ready to cut my hair which is slightly wavy and is cut just over my shoulders with long layers. My face shape is oval and I like to change my hairstyle often or I get bored with it. Right now I don’t have bangs but I don’t mind cutting them if I find a short hair style I like. For homecoming I’d like to find a new short hairstyle or funky hairstyle that stands out.

    Any ideas you have would be helpful.


    Great Time for a Change

    Show up to the dance with a new short hairstyle and your enthusiasm for style, and you’ll confidence will shine through. The great thing for you is that an oval face shape is the most versatile. You can rock virtually any hairdo, and it will complement your face shape well.

    Highlight Your Best Features

    When choosing a new hairstyle, you should choose a feature that you would like to highlight the most such as the eyes or cheekbones. Layering helps to frame and soften features thereby drawing attention to that area, so you will want to have lots of layering around the features you choose to accentuate.

    A pixie haircut like Rihanna’s would be a great change while still being very feminine and sexy. Try cutting the bangs in the temple area shorter than the rest. This will help customize the cut for you, and make it even more dramatic.

    Live on the Wild Side

    Another option for your oval face shape is a hairstyle that is asymmetrical. This term simply means that one side longer than the other. An asymmetrical shape can be a funky hairstyle or a conservative hairdo depending on how you choose to style it.

    Thanks to Victoria Beckham, a classic bob hairstyle is always a great choice too. Victoria rocked the asymmetrical bob hairstyle for a long time before going to the short pixie haircut that she wears today. You can customize bobs in all sorts of ways to make it your own. Ask your hairstylist to add lots of texture for height and layers for movement, so you’ll have even more styling options.

    Before You Make the Cut 

    Sometimes just trying a simple hairstyle change rather than a haircut can make the world of difference. I’ve been seeing a lot of braids incorporated in the homecoming hairstyles this year. Celebrities such as Nicole Richie and Lauren Conrad have been seen around Hollywood lately sporting braids.

    Homecoming Hairstyles for Curly Hair

    Homecoming hairstyle tips help to define your curls!

    After a lifetime of fighting with their natural curls, curly girls everywhere have made a turn to start embracing their curls instead of continuing the battle. Thanks to a big curl comeback on fashion runways and the red carpet events of Hollywood, we now have more homecoming hairstyle tips and products for curly girls than ever before!

    Big, curly hair can look messy and dry or strikingly beautiful as a homecoming hairdo! The key is in knowing how to manage your type of hair because not all curly hair is the same. There are plenty of good curly hair products on the market to help, but you need to identify your hair type before you can give it what it needs. Curly hair is naturally dry and needs lots of moisture and deep conditioning treatments to give it shine and definition. A seasoned hairdresser is your best bet for helping you to determine the best curly hair products for your hair type.

    The trend with curls now is ‘big and undefined,” says Ouidad, who in the industry is known as the Queen of Curls. She also says that curly girls have an advantage for another hot trend for homecoming hairstyles . . . hair accessories. “Curly hair provides lots of bedding to hold hair accessories.” So with curls you have many options and can get splendidly creative!Cute Homecoming Hairstyles

    Hairstyling Tips – Drying Curly Hair

    The Right Tools

    • Hair dryer- A hair dryer with 1400 watts is a good choice. You don’t want to blow the curl out of your hair.
    • Diffuser- A diffuser will allow you to use a hair dryer without creating a frizzy mess. It disperses heat over a larger area to set in the curl rather than blow out the curl.

    The Right Hair Care Products

    • Conditioner – Use a moisturizing conditioner like Ouidad Moisturizing Conditioner.
    • Gel – A gel, like Ouidad Heat and Humidity Gel, will define your curls!
    • Finishing spray – Ouidad Styling Mist and Holding Spray sets your hairstyle in place.

    The Right Finish

    • Pomade – Rub a pea size drop between palms and distribute though the hair. This will break up any crunchiness. For more volume, flip upside down and dry your hair with hair dryer and diffuser in a circular motion at roots only.
