As your prom night quickly approaches, you have already picked out your perfect prom dress and some accessories to match; now all that is left is the perfect prom hairstyle to top it all off. From up-do’s to down-do’s, and everything in between, there are countless combinations of styles that your luscious locks could do. Though the amount of prom hairstyles are endless, here are six featured hairstyles, with how-to tips on finding out which one is best for your prom look!

1. Updos

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.

2. Down

If you’re going for a more glamorous look, then big curls and voluminous locks are perfect for you! Ask your hairstylist to tease the top, and sweep it to the side for a red carpet ready look. Not only will this show off your hairs natural elegance, but it will accent the glamorous and elegant look that you are going for.

3. Half up

When all of the drama is on the front of your dress, try pulling your hair into a half up style. This will allow everyone to admire your stunning dress, as well as see your beautiful face. Try grabbing crystal clip that accents the details and stones on your dress to help tie your entire look together.

4. Ponytail

Do you want a hairstyle that is as joyful as you are? If your prom dress is just as fun as your personality, then a bouncy ponytail is perfect for you! Channel your inner Snooki with a mini bump on top, and do not forget to add curls for volume. Don’t forget to wrap a piece of hair around to hide the hair tie. This style will flow with you the entire night!
