    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.

    Styles with Bounce:

    Braids work perfect for virtually any hair type, as seen with this braided style which elegantly features cornrow braids at the top. The hair is secured with an elegant band at the bottom for a very natural, yet finished, look.

    Guide to Short Hair Styles for Prom

    Short Hair Styles for Prom

    Short Hair Styles for Prom This Year

    Who invented the myth that you must have long hair to have a high glamour prom night? Hair is fabulous at any length if you have the right tools and advice. Now, I am here to share some easy, DIY secrets on how to create remarkable short hair styles for prom!

    Find the Best Hairstyle for You

    If you have already found your dream gown, congratulations, the hard part is over. Now it’s time to choose a hairstyle that will compliment your dress. If your dress is soft, and long, it is best to choose something classical. Try a hairstyle that is polished and sleek. When you are wearing a strapless gown, it is best to opt for a more romantic look. You should try something with loose curls or lightly pinned up. And when you have a dress that is flirty and fun, make sure your short hairstyle is mimicking the sassy vibe.

    Short Hair Styles for Prom

    Classical Hairstyles

    1. Wash and towel dry hair. Apply a coin size amount of a smoothing or straightening balm, and lightly spritz a volumizing mousse to the root area.
    2. Blow dry hair upside down. Use your fingers to pick through the hair gently.
    3. When the hair is almost dry, generously mist a setting spray through the hair. Next, wrap one inch sections of hair around large Velcro rollers.
    4. Blow-dry the rest of the dampness out of the hair. Then, allow the hair to cool down.
    5. Remove all the rollers. Once the rollers have been removed, toss the hair upside down, and finger pick the hair with a shine pomade. Then, brush the hair lightly using a vent or flat brush. For a more dramatic look, create a severe parting and smooth the ends under.

    Romantic Hairstyles

    1. Spray a setting spray all over blow-dried hair.
    2.  Use a medium barrel curling iron, and wrap one inch sections of hair around the barrel.
    3. Spray and wind each curl back to the root, and fasten with a pin.
    4. Once the entire head is finished, start removing all of the pins. Toss the hair lightly then form through the curls with a light pomade.
    5. Create your desired parting, and lightly back comb your fringe area to give it a slight bit of volume.
    6. Twist and pin the sides back behind the ears. Allow the curls to fall naturally through the nape of your neck.

    Flirty Hairstyles

    1. Wash hair with a curl enhancing shampoo. Lightly towel dry the hair, and gently comb through hair with a wide toothed comb to get rid of snarls. To remove excess water scrunch the hair lightly towards the roots using a paper towel. The paper towel will absorb the excess moisture.
    2. Blow-dry your hair using a diffuser. When you are blow-drying, mist the hair with a curl activating spray or sea salt spray, this will give the hair a more tossed beach look.
    3. Mist a shine spray, and style as desired. If your ends are a little too frizzy, massage a wax gel in the palm of your hands, and scrunch the ends of the hair.

    There are always ways of spicing things up, so please don’t hesitate to try something new. The luxury of short hair is that you can try several styles easily and quickly. Take the time before prom, and fool around with different partings, add some jeweled pins, try pinning one side back, and add some flower power to your style.

    And for all you cute prom attendees, who are thinking about wearing short hairstyles, don’t think you have to change, and grow out your hair for prom; be yourself, just add a dash of flare to the mixture.

    Elegant Waves

    Wavy hairstyles work great for fine, medium and thick hair types. If you have fine hair, waves can be a great option to make hair appear fuller. Waves also look great on oval, round, heart, and square face shapes and work well on strapless dresses. For those that are confident with their styling skills, waves are something you can even do at home. Be sure to use a 1″ barrel curling iron or larger, and lock in your look with a flexible hairspray. My go-to hairspray is Worked Up by Paul Mitchell.

    Playful Braids

    Braids are an easy way to add style to your look. Braided hairstyles work best on medium and thick hair, but can tend to make fine hair look thinner. Braids can add a touch of playfulness to any prom hairstyle, and work well for dresses that are fun and flirty. Braids look best on oval, round, and heart face shapes and are complimented well with a bun, waves, or even a playful pony!

    Romantic Buns

    You don’t need long hair to pull off a romantic bun! Whether you want a simple sleek bun at the nape of your neck, or a wavy side bun, this hairstyle works on hair that is shoulder length or longer. This style is best for fine to medium hair and compliments oval, heart, and oblong face shapes. A bun is a great option if you have a high cut neckline or intricate detail on the bodice. With a romantic bun all eyes are on your beautiful face and show stopping dress.

    Classic Straight

    Who says you need a complicated prom hairstyle? Celebrities are rocking sleek straight styles on the red carpet with their evening gowns. If you don’t want to sit in the salon or fuss with a complicated style, consider going for a smooth down style. This style is awesome for medium and thick hair types and works well on most face shapes. Classic straight is a a great option for lower cut sweetheart necklines and strapless dresses. You can create this look at home with your trusty flat iron and a styling spray like Rusk Thermal Flat Iron Spray.

    Whether you want to keep you hair simple and down or go for a dramatic updo, you can feel confident and stylish in one of the hottest prom hairstyles for 2013. You may need to find the perfect dress and shoes, oh and a fun bright toe nail polish, but when it comes to hair, we’ve got you covered!
