Hairstyles to Best Highlight Your Prom Dress


As your prom night is quickly approaching, you may already have an idea of which gorgeous dress you want to wear, and maybe even accessories, so it’s time to think hair! From up-do’s to down-do’s, and everything in between, there are countless combinations of looks to suit your style. Here at Faviana we have found some of our favorite styles to help you pick which works best for your look, and Hairstyles to Best Highlight Your Prom Dress!

1. Updos

Does your prom dress have some killer back detailing that you want to show off? A sleek up-do is the perfect way to do it! With your hair tied back you will also have the freedom to dance the night away, and pose for pictures without worrying about a hair crisis. Try a low chignon bun, or a trendy topknot.

2. Down

If you’re going for a more glamorous red carpet look, then big curls and voluminous locks are perfect for you! If you aren’t planning on going to the salon for your prom glam, this is also an easy look to achieve yourself. Not only will it show off your hair’s natural body, but it will also add a boho-chic vibe to your look. This hairstyle would be best paired with a simpler gown, so your hair does not overwhelm your look.

3. Half-up

A half-up style is the perfect compromise for showing off your hair and your dress at the same time. It allows you to get creative with your hair, but also show off a dress with ornate details. Perfect for a dress with beading on the front or a pattern, a half-up style could be simple or complicated with braids or twists.

4. Ponytail

Are you looking for a more playful hairstyle? If your prom dress is just as fun as your personality, then a bouncy ponytail is perfect for you! Add a little volume at your roots, and don’t forget to add curls for volume. Don’t forget to wrap a piece of hair around to hide the hair tie for a more sophisticated look. This style will flow with you the entire night!

5. Braids

If your prom dress is simple and you want to add texture, or if you want a more natural hairstyle, try a braid! A chunky Elsa-style braid pulled to the side will add interest to a simple dress. A strapless dress is the perfect canvas to show off a fun braid. Pair this braided style with simple, delicate accessories for an clean look.
