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.

Styling tip

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!

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.

Styling tip

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
