Here are a few long hair styles for Prom that you can give a try before the big event . . .
An elegant, glamorous look!
Get the look: Set hair with hot rollers and with a side parting, pull back into a loose, low ponytail. Take two sections and pin-up to extend curls of the ponytail. Leave out a couple of face framing layers and softly curl with iron. Side swept bangs are hot, and will soften the look and draw attention to your eyes.
Rock ‘n’ roll style!
Get the look: Set hair with hot rollers, leave out long swept bangs and smooth with round brush/hair dryer. Pull hair into two high side ponytails from a side part, leaving out some face framing layers. Curl face framing layers away from face. Take one inch random sections and pin above and around the ponytail elastic, to widen and lengthen into more cascading curls. For the look of more hair, purchase a ponytail or hairpiece with a clip or comb securing it into your hair.
The tantalizing coquette!
Get the look: Set hair with hot rollers or curl using a curling iron throughout to create loose curls. Create a deep side part, leaving out a two-inch section in bang area to braid or twist. Pull rest into a low side ponytail, secure with elastic. Wrap a small section of hair around the elastic and pin underneath. Braid the bang section and pin behind ponytail. Lightly tease ponytail to make a ruffed-up texture and lightly spray.
Funky n’ fun!
Get the look: long swept side bangs are a must for this funky hairstyle. Straighten hair and bangs using a hair dryer and paddle brush keeping some volume in the hair. Pull hair back into a high pony tail securing with clear elastic. Pull hair straight up and clip at crown using a wide, hair clip and letting hair fall over top of the hair clip. Lightly backcomb at crown.
The sweetest of the sweet!
Soft and feminine prom hairstyle
Get the look: pull hair back into a chignon leaving a few two-inch pieces out around hairline. Curl pieces pull back and pin leaving curled ends showing. Pin in aromatic, spring flowers for a most feminine touch.
