On prom night, you deserve to feel extra fabulous. By now, you’ve probably done all of your dress shopping, found the perfect jewelry, and practiced walking in your new heels but what’s a prom look without a bomb hairstyle? Be the queen you were meant to be with these easy and elegant hairstyles for prom.
If you’re forever the campus trendsetter, step out of your limo with the ultimate style of the moment: a blunt bob! Take it to the next level by ombre-ing the cut with your color of choice.
High Braided Ponytail
Channel your inner Queen Bey and whip your head back and forth all night with a braided high ponytail. While simple in theory, a long ponytail will give you an undeniably fierce flawlessness. Unless you naturally have hip-length hair (go ahead, girl!), check out this video from The Find Guru on how to achieve the style (here).
Big & Bold
Serve major melanin goddess vibes and let your natural hair shine. Bigger is better with this style, so don’t be afraid to add in a few tracks for more volume. Consider Mayvenn’s ‘Kinky Straight’ if going for a blown out look or ‘Curly’ hair for a texture that matches your natural hair and requires minimal manipulation.
Old Hollywood Finger Waves
Ooze sophistication all night long with face framing finger waves. This is a great style for ladies who like to subtly make a statement. If you want to raise the glam factor, pair this style with some fun costume jewelry or dramatic lashes.
For the babes rocking locs, slay prom with a bold bun. There are multiple ways to personalize this look whether it be two-strand twisting your locs at the base or placing gold braiding beads throughout.
A tried and true prom style, classic curls are a great option if you want to keep it simple but still look (and feel) glamorous. The key to a good head of curls is layers, something you can easily achieve with two or three bundles of Mayvenn’s ‘Loose Wave’ hair. Grab your curling wand and add ringlet curls throughout.
