Top 5 Curly Prom Hairstyles


It’s finally prom season! It is time to book those hair appointments, nail salon visits and break in those cute prom heels. While you are finding the perfect salon to create your prom ‘do, make sure you research some styles you might like before the big day! If you have curly hair you have a million options of hairstyles, from casual and laid back to total glam. Take some inspiration from our ideas, and get the look of your dreams. Here is Faviana’s Top 5 Curly Prom Hairstyles!

Twisted Knot

Contain your curls without hiding them with a messy-chic knot at the nape of your neck. This look is perfect for keeping your hair back, while showing off detailing on the neck and back of your dress. Add twists or braided pieces pulled back into the bun for a princessy vibe, and maybe even tuck in some flowers to match your corsage. You can change this look a tad but adding a french braid along the crown of your head, perfect for thick hair!


All Things Hair

This look is a dream for laid back girls. If you are looking for a away to get your hair sleek and pulled back, without all the fuss, a fishtail braid is perfect for you. Ask your hairstylist to braid your hair back into a side fishtail, or for longer hair try styling the braid straight down your back. Pull a few front pieces out to frame your face in curls!

Faux Hawk

For the rocker girl headed to prom, this look is an edgy twist on a classic updo. Easy to achieve at home or in the salon, this look is to die for. It is best if done with longer hair, but for shorter hair try a series of small buns to give you that faux hawk volume! For a touch of glam in this look, try clipping back fly-aways with a bejeweled bobby pin.

All Natural

If you love your naturally curly hair, why hide it! This look is easy to achieve at home, or with the help of some professional hands at a salon. The key to this look is voluminous, luscious and moisturized locks, so be sure to try some masks and rejuvenating tricks pre-prom. Let your hair air dry to maintain it’s natural shape, but help along curl definition with a little gel. Don’t forget to use a hairspray with medium hold so your hair has movement!

Any hairstyle you choose should show off your individual style, and help to highlight your prom dress. Whether you are looking for a complicated updo or a low key braid, be sure you have pictures and ideas to share with your stylist so they know where to start. Always be sure to prep your hair before prom day as well, as healthy hair is easier to style!
