Prom 2015: 5 ways to accessorize your hair

/ 04.24.2015

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!

Styling tip

Prevent flyaways and eliminate frizz with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

2. Headbands


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.

Styling tip

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

Styling tip

Enhance your hair's natural volume with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mouuse.

4. Ribbons


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.

Styling tip

To get a sleek look, apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Spray before blowdrying.

5. Barrettes and combs
