When you're pressed for time, a cute half-up hairstyle is always there to save the day, whether you rock it with braids, twists or a chic barrette.

If you want a style that looks like you spent hours on it, this sleek updo is a great option, especially because it can be done in a matter of minutes. All you need to do is create a loop (as if you were styling a pony), wrap the ends around the hair tie to camouflage it, and pin the sides of the loop to the back of your head.

Styling tip

Add shine and banish frizz with plenty of Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray.

3. Textured ponytail

With some added volume at the crown, a textured ponytail is a super easy, on-trend hairstyle for prom. Accessorize it with a headband or a ribbon for extra detail, or team it with a bold lip color for an effortlessly cool look.

Styling tip

Add volume at the root and through the lengths with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. For a lot of height, spray the hair then tease it with a fine-tooth comb.

4. Laid back waves

If you believe that less is more when it comes to your hair, or you just don't have time to style 'more', some laid back mermaid waves will help you to create a really pretty, understated prom look.

Styling tip

For speedy styling, spray dry hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray, then braid it all into five or six individual braids. Flat iron each braid to set the strands into loose waves, let them cool, then shake your hair out.

5. Sleek bun

A sleek bun is always an elegant way to wear your hair when you don't have a lot of time to devote to styling, or just don't want anything complicated. For prom, try pairing it with a pretty barrette for some added sparkle.

Styling tip

Tame flyaways with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
