10 Pretty prom hairstyles with easy video tutorials

/ 04.21.2015

It's prom season and right now, we're all about helping you find your perfect hairstyle for the big night! Whether you want to wear your hair up, down or even half-up, we've got you covered with ten video tutorials. All you need to do is decide which pretty look you'll wear to prom this year...

1. Bardot bun

When in doubt, channeling a French style icon is always a great idea, and Brigitte Bardot certainly knew how to rock a voluminous updo! This cute bun looks great with bangs and you could accessorize it with a headband to really make it your own.

2. Screen Siren Waves

If it's glamor you want, it's glamor you'll get with some polished, side-swept waves. This classic style is an iconic Hollywood look and it can be done on several hair lengths, from a shoulder grazing bob to long, flowing tresses.

3. 1920s Undercurl

Remember how great everyone looked in The Great Gatsby? Well, you can totally rock a 1920s look of your own to prom! This elegant style creates the illusion of a shorter haircut and it looks great with vintage inspired accessories.

4. Full body curls

A big, voluminous blowout is the perfect prom style if you want to make an impact with your hair, but don't necessarily want to wear it up. You can accessorize with a headband, or keep it as it is for a simple, full-bodied look.

5. Braided crown

For the bohemian beauties among you, a braided crown is the perfect option. It's really cute, it looks super intricate, and it's one of the best ways to dance-proof your mane for prom! The braids will keep your hair up and under control while looking impossibly pretty at the same time.

6. Low bun

For an understated, sophisticated look, a low bun just can't be beaten. It's elegant and cute at the same time, and you can put your own spin on the look with a sparkly barrette or some floral accessories.

7. Knotted updo

A knotted updo will draw attention to your makeup, jewelry and, of course, your dress. With plenty of detail in the back, this simple chignon will keep the focus where it needs to be without seeming boring or underdone.

8. Short retro waves

For those of you with short hair, smooth, retro waves will create a glamorous, understated beauty look. This style has a cute, vintage feel and with a glossy finish, it'll add plenty of sparkle to your crowning glory!

9. Retro bouffant pony

Anything mod chic looks good, whatever the occasion, so why not try a retro bouffant pony for prom? It has plenty of volume on top, creating an interesting silhouette, and it's the perfect hairstyle to pair with minimalist accessories.

10. Half-up braids

If you take a less-is-more approach to styling your hair, half-up braids make for a cute prom look with plenty of movement and just enough detail to take your regular waves to the next level.
