7 Red Carpet Hairstyles You Can Wear To Prom
Prom season is officially on its way and whether you’re going full glam or a little more understated we’re guessing you’re already planning your look. This is the celebration of a lot of hard work, so you want to make sure you’re looking and feeling your absolute best. If you’re not sure what hairstyle to go for we’ve found a few red carpet looks that would be totally perfect...
Sleek High Pony
We love Jorga Smith’s super sassy pony and we think this would be perfect for slaying the prom season. You could go as sleek or as textured as you like with your high ponytail to suit the vibe of your dress and it’s one of the easiest hairstyles to create. We’ve got a tutorial here that you can follow and we’d recommend using a bungee elastic as it’s the most secure.
We can’t stop swooning over this hairstyle on Miley Cyrus and we love how it’s a totally different take on a red carpet look. If your dress is more structured rather than princessy then you could definitely go for this and it looks amazing if your hair is highlighted or ombre.
90s Inspired Up-Do
This is such a pretty look and the delicate face framing pieces are so 90s and majorly on trend right now. If you’re planning on wearing a busy dress or something with a high neck then this would be perfect for you. We’d take a leaf out of Kendall’s book and pick up some killer earrings too.
Who said prom hair has to be boring? If you really want to stand out then Jasmine Sanders’ super detailed braid would be perfect for you. You’ll need to pick up a lot of string, flowers and bobby pins to put this look together though. We’d also recommend using our 24-26” hair extensions to make it super long.
If super sleek, polished hair isn’t your vibe then Cardi B’s textured would be a great option for prom. Just make sure you curl your hair first to add loads of texture and keep everything super loose so that it’s not too polished.
Slicked Back Bows
If you’re going full glam then this slicked back look is very red carpet vibes and perfect with an off the shoulder or velvet dress. To nail this one you’ll need to use the toothbrush hack to make sure you’ve smoothed down all the flyaways for a really neat finish. You might want to fill in your hairline with some eyeshadow too, which will give you the appearance of thicker hair.
If you’re not one for dressing up and want to keep your prom look super casual then we’d recommend going for these loose waves. It’s also a really easy hairstyle to maintain so you won’t have to worry about taking bobby pins or hairspray with you. We’ve got a tutorial here that’s super similar if you want to try it out.
