Does your prom dress have some killer back detailing that you want to show off? A fancy up-do is the way to accent it! Not only will this style keep your hair out of the way as you dance the night away, but it will ensure that no one misses the detail that the back of your dress provides. Try a low chignon bun, or a trendy topknot.

A slicked pony is a super chic and simple way to elevate your look for prom. Not to mention, it is the perfect way to keep yourself as cool as possible while you dance the night away! If you want the it-girl hairstyle for a clean girl aesthetic, use a super strong hold hairspray or hair gel and a good old fashioned boar bristle brush, you can achieve this gorgeous look! You also have the option to leave your ponytail straight, or curl the ends. Plus, if you want to add more volume, a ponytail hair extension clip is a great option!

Hair Rhinestones

Getting Rhinestones, Gems, or Pearls on your hair has been such a huge trend recently, and it is a look that definitely has that element of uniqueness for your special day! If you are getting your hair done by a professional, you will have to speak with your hair stylist to see if they have hair gems available. If they don't you may have to order some online. If you have chosen to do your hair on your own, you can find a Y2K hair gem stamper, or you can follow your chosen hair rhinestone brand's instructions for how to apply. We would definitely recommend doing a test run before the big day to make sure it comes out perfect!
