  • Simple chignon
  • Cute braided detail
  • Loose waves

Choosing the right hairstyle for prom can be tricky, and there are many factors that come into play when deciding on your look. What style of dress will you wear (does it channel a certain era, convey a specific feeling)? What is your personality- are you usually quite casual or do you love to be "made up"? What are your plans for the evening- are you strictly a slow-dancing kind of gal, not a dancer at all, or do you plan on channeling your inner Ke$ha for the night?

We've chosen 3 unique hairstyles straight from the runway that are current but classic, pretty but simple, and most importantly, easy to create at home! Keep reading to find your perfect prom look!

The classic chignon

This look is so timeless and elegant that it's a great fit for almost any ensemble. This style opens up the face, drawing in light and highlighting all of your best features. Plus, it can be adapted in many different ways to suit your tastes (smooth and sleek, or soft and tousled).

Create this hairstyle by blow-drying with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream, creating a center part when you're done. Brush the hair back and to the side, then secure with a hair tie. Wrap the hair around the ponytail and secure it with pins. Mist with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to finish.

The romantic braid

There's no better time to look like a fairytale princess than your prom night! If you like hairstyles that are "styled" but still soft and natural, this is the one for you!

To get the look, spritz Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray through your hair and blow-dry in twisted sections to create some relaxed waves. Scrunch with your hands for extra texture. Create three small braids at random points in your hair, then smooth the hair back loosely into a side ponytail. Wrap the hair around the hair tie and pin into a chignon. Let a few small pieces fall forward to frame the face. Fix with Bold Control Hairspray and you're good to go!

The loose look

Go for loose curls that are effortlessly gorgeous for a low-key look. You can add with floral accessories or a headband for extra detail.

Simply curl sections of the hair with a medium-sized curling iron, run your fingers through your hair to loosen them up, and then mist the hair throughout with hairspray. Yep, that's all it takes!
