At the Oscars earlier this year, Zoe hit the red carpet with an intricate chignon, complete with romantic coils and tendrils to soften the look. Whether you have a glitzy ensemble in mind or are planning something with more of a boho vibe, this updo is definitely one you should consider!

Styling tip

After curling each piece of hair, gently pool it in your hand, mist it with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and clip it up to cool. This will set your strands into long-lasting curls that won't fall flat.

2. Curly fishtail braid

If you love braided hairstyles, this is the prom look for you. A simple fishtail side braid with defined, glossy curls is a sumptuous, polished style that frames the face beautifully. It also does a wonderful job of showcasing any jewelry you want to wear.

Styling tip

Begin by braiding your fishtail quite tightly, then loosen it by gently pulling it outward with your hands after securing the ends. To soften the edges, gently tease a few random pieces of hair free along the length the braid.

3. Half-up princess hair

If you want to let your prom dress do all the talking, a cute, wavy updo is exactly what you need. It's understated enough to avoid overwhelming the rest of your look, but the texture keeps it pretty and interesting.

Styling tip

Mist damp hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and blow-dry it in twisted sections to create loose waves. Once dried, use a curling iron to add more waves wherever necessary.

5. Low chignon
