Whether you’re going with a hot date or you’ve got your besties by your side, prom night is THE night of your high school experience. You’ve got the dress. You’ve got the shoes. What are you doing with your hair? Remember, your parents will want pictures and the pictures will live forever. No pressure! Really though, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered with this spring’s hottest prom hairstyles to make your final look pure perfection.
This year the trend is “customized classics.” Updos will forever reign supreme but this year is the time to put your own spin on things. Add a braid to your chignon. Cool pins and clips can really glam up a simple half-up, half-down style. Sparkles are never a bad idea. Check out some of our favorite styles below for some serious #HairInspo.
No hairstyle says “prom” more than a chignon. It’s a classic and rightly so. It works on everyone, it’s easy to do, and it is low-maintenance – you can dance all night and your hair stays flawless. Give it some twists and turns to make it anything but basic.
Embrace your natural hair! Don’t worry about this being too much; if your dress is more on the simple side, let your hair be your statement piece. If you’ve got a vivid dress, round out the intensity with this style and own your look
Sparkle and shine
Not fully committed to a total updo? Not a problem! A simple style can still be a show-stopper. It doesn’t matter if you’re rocking rhinestones or pretty in pearls, these little pieces provide just the right amount of polish.
Sleek and Chic
Never to be overlooked is the ponytail. The timeless look can be regarded as too simple. We argue that the simplicity can be just what your look may need. Wear it high, hide the hair tie and flatiron for undeniably sleek sophistication.
