Prom season has begun which means now is the perfect time to start planning your hairstyle for the big night! To make it as easy as possible for you, we've selected ten gorgeous updos. All you have to do is scroll down and get inspired!
1. Triple French braided chignon
If you love braiding your hair, or have a BFF who does, this intricate French braided chignon is a really pretty look for prom. It will keep your hair up and under control without compromising on style, leaving you free to dance the night away!
This hairstyle works best with day two hair, so spritz your roots with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray and get braiding! The dry shampoo formula will absorb excess oil and add grip to make braiding as easy as possible.
2. French braided bun
Another intricate updo, this cute braided bun is perfect for long hair and can be accessorized with flowers, barrettes, ribbon... whatever you like! You can wear it messy or go for a more polished, sleek finish.
Mist your finished style with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine and prevent frizz.
3. Sleek braided bun
This understated braided bun will keep the focus on your dress, without coming off as boring thanks to the braided detail. You can rock it with a regular three-strand braid, a fishtail or rope twist.
Gather your hair into a tight, low ponytail and attach a chain before braiding to add some extra sparkle to your look.
4. Low side chignon
For a sophisticated look, a low side chignon is the perfect hairstyle. It's a classic updo that works beautifully with any outfit, so if you find yourself stuck for ideas last-minute, keep this simple style in mind!
Tie your hair into a low pony then pin it into a bun for great (dance-proof) hold.
5. Headband updo
A headband updo is a gorgeous look that seems way more complicated than it really is. All you need is a stretchy headband and a few bobby pins to recreate it in a matter of minutes! It'll also stay put until you decide to take it down, so there's no need to worry about it falling out.
Put your headband on and loop 1-2" pieces of hair around it, starting at the sides of your face and working back to the nape of your neck.
6. Braided crown
A braided crown hairstyle creates a pretty focal point for your whole beauty look but won't outshine your dress. It creates the perfect showcase for any jewelry you plan to wear for prom, and it looks great with an understated, feminine beauty look.
Spray your bobby pins with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray for extra grip.
7. Voluminous chignon
To create a full-bodied look with an interesting silhouette, try a voluminous chignon. It's a classic updo that can be worn with a pomp or more of a beehive if you prefer.
Spray the top layers and the hair at the crown with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray before teasing to get long-lasting volume.
8. Textured bun
This hairstyle is a versatile look that can be worn with or without a braid, and it it can be dressed up with some glam accessories for extra detail.
Spritz your hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray before rough drying to get an effortlessly undone texture.
9. Double French braided chignon
With a French braid on each side leading trailing into a braided bun at the back, this is another fairly complex braided hairstyle that's worth the effort!
Like the braided styles mentioned above, this style works best with day two hair, so wash it the day before to make the styling process as easy as possible.
10. Low knot
Like a low side chignon or bun, a low knot is a chic option for anyone who doesn't want to spend much time styling. It's fast, it's pretty and anyone can do it!
Complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to eliminate flyaway and prevent frizz.
