This formal hairstyle exudes class with long spiral sections hanging to each side. The rest is clipped up to only about shoulder length and brushed behind. The design comes forward covering the ears. Naturally straight hair is treated using curling irons creating a lovely effect and perfected by a lighter shade of highlights woven throughout. There's a slight parting, the bangs sweep out to the side. The examples in this collection are ideally suited to prom nights, homecoming and less formal parties. Contemporary weddings and modern events may be more accommodating, especially for younger guests but High-society or stuffy, straight-laced gatherings will frown upon many designs here.
Loose Waves and Unobtrusive Jewelry are the Order of the Day.
There's nothing too bling in this collation of updos and party styles and many a young lady should take heed. Sorry to get all Grandma on you but we so many prom pictures of girls plastered in garish lumps of shiny stuff which spoil the entire finished product. Know when to stop, less is more. By illustration, consider the straight and flaxen number, falling well beneath the shoulders that's pushed forward to slightly cover the neck and ears. Something to consider when deciding on wearing accessories like earrings and necklaces. The ends are slightly wavy to give some life and verve around the neckline.
A dark example starting almost perfectly straight, although it includes wavy flicks upward. Enough volume to impart extra vitality as it falls past shoulder length, much of it has been put up at the back in order to expose the neck. Straight on top with a side part. The bangs have a comb-over vibe to the left side and fall to eye level. The pinned ponytail is braided in a loose fishtail and reversed onto itself creating distinctive loops.
This hairstyle is unique but formal, windswept sections create glamor and highlight natural beauty. Layering adds body resulting in pizazz and bounce, waving as you move. The crown is parted to the side with a subtle wave. Shorter pieces frame the face and are swept to the left.
Elegant, messy without being a contradiction in terms.
A classic for prom night, elegant, yet playful, almost girlish. The curls are thick, well-defined and pinned up across the width of the head. The curls are almost forming a crown. The curls have added volume to give extra flair but not excessively. Sixties and seventies psychedelia inspired the clothing but that' optional.
Classy yet playful feel. The long, blonde locks wrap up into a bun with the ends visible to one side. Contains extra volume and fullness but it's not overwhelming. A section is separated and forms a spiral area with the veil as a backdrop.
Sure to make your special evening memorable. The long, blond hair has been pulled into an updo with the hair wrapped around several times to create a large crown braid. A wide section sweeps across the forehead, longer sections cascade down. Reproduce the pouty lips and luminous piercing blue eyes and you've nailed it.
