For prom, choosing your hair accessories is kind of a big deal because you need to make sure they coordinate with your dress, won't overwhelm your makeup and complement your corsage... or at least one of those things. Mainly though, it's all about finding an accessory that will enhance your hairstyle and help tie your whole look together.
To make the choice slightly easier, we have five great accessory ideas for prom below, all you need to do is pick a favorite!
1. Large flowers
To add a pop of color to any updo (and to match your corsage!) try wearing a flower or two in your hair. There are so many options, whether you like roses, daisies or magnolias, so you're bound to find a bloom you'll love!
Prevent flyaways and eliminate frizz with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
If you have a voluminous vintage hairstyle planned, or want to dance-proof your hair in the cutest way possible, a headband is a great option. You can pair it with either an updo or a down 'do, and there are many different styles to choose from, from minimalist alice bands to bohemian chains.
To give your hair more volume, spritz the roots with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and massage with your fingertips.
3. Small flowers
Another floral option, scattering some smaller, individual blossoms throughout your hair gives your beauty look a very pretty, whimsical feel. They look gorgeous with soft textures and will add some extra detail to your chosen hairstyle.
Enhance your hair's natural volume with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mouuse.
If you're looking for an easy, inexpensive way to accessorize a braided hairstyle or a ponytail, try using a ribbon. You can use it to secure your hair or weave it into the style for some added detail.
To get a sleek look, apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Spray before blowdrying.
5. Barrettes and combs
One of the easiest ways to accessorize any hairstyle is with a chic barrette or comb. All you need to do is slide it into place and voilà, you're good to go!
After styling, tack down any remaining flyaways by applying Bold Control Hairspray to an old toothbrush and smoothing it over the problem area.
