Prom Hairstyle: Side Braid Curls


Side braid curls are a popular prom hairstyle, right after the french braid updo we shared with you already. If you’re obsessed with beach waves and looking for an easy hairstyle for prom, then this one’s for you. Here we break it down for you and show you exactly how to create the prom hairstyle: side braid curls!

Side Braid Curls: Materials

Before getting started on your hairdo, you’re going to need the following materials:

  • Hairspray
  • Texturizer
  • Styling Treatment
  • Comb
  • Hairties
  • Bobby Pins
  • Barrel Curler or Wand

Side Braid Curls: Prep

Once you have your materials, it’s time to prep your hair. Start by creating a deep side part using the comb. Add styling gel to prep the braid and separate the clean part.

Side Braid Curls: French Braid

After having a tamed and clean part, you’re ready to start the side braid. Begin french braiding your hair at the side part. Make sure you only braid until right behind your ear.

Side Braid Curls: Secure

Then, secure the braid at the back with bobby pins and a small hair tie. Cover this with your hair to avoid the pins being shown!

Side Braid Curls: Curling Wand

Now your ready to break out your curling iron! Using a curling wand or barrel curler, begin creating soft curls around your head. Complete every hair strand, being mindful of the french braid in place. Finally, spray your hairstyle with hairspray to last all day and night at prom!
