When you've got the dress, the accessories, the corsage and the date all planned, choosing the perfect prom hairstyle is the only thing left to do... even if you totally left it to the last minute! To help you out when there's no time to spare, we've selected five easy hairstyles for the big night, all of which take just a few minutes to achieve.
1. Half-up fishtail braids
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.
Get a smooth, flyaway-free look by applying Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream to damp hair before drying.
2. Sleek updo
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tame flyaways with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
