For prom, you want everything to be perfect, especially your hair! However, this can seem like a bit of a mission sometimes, so we've got a gallery of cute hairstyles to inspire you. Each look features a floral accessory of some kind, mostly because it's (finally) spring and wearing some pretty flowers is the easiest way to make any hairstyle look romantically fabulous/more pulled-together without really trying...

Who doesn't love a practical styling cheat?

Wearing your hair up for prom might be easier than you think. There are plenty of different ways you can style an updo, and accessories like headbands can make the whole process a total no-brainer.

Loose locks

If you prefer to keep your hair fuss-free, leaving your hair down is a totally viable option. The key to making it work is choosing the right texture.

Get the look: If you have naturally curly hair, stick with it, and try to work in as much definition as possible, then team with a headband. Alternatively, you can go for a more tousled, summery look with a wavy style. To do this, spray the hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and blow-dry in twisted sections. Once dried, finger-comb and scrunch for more texture then spray all over with hairspray for long-lasting hold.


A carefree windswept texture is a good option for anyone because it creates a soft silhouette, but still throws plenty of emphasis on the face (read: your beautiful prom makeup!)

Get the look: Gently tease the hair on the top, crown and a little on the sides. Spray with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray as you go. Don't go overboard; you only want to add a little extra lift before lightly sculpting the hair backwards. Pin at the back into a loose bun or French twist. For long-lasting hold, mist with hairspray then add your accessories!


If you want to channel some fairytale magic with your prom hairstyle, a romantic look is the way to go. For this, you want a few loose strands of slightly curled hair to frame the face, with the rest pinned up into an updo of your choosing.

To style: One of the easiest ways to get a romantic hairstyle for prom is with a rolled headband updo. All you have to do is put your headband on with your hair down, then roll and tuck the lengths around the back of the headband, securing with bobby pins as you go. Tease a few small sections loose then mist with hairspray to finish. FYI, this is easier for medium or only slightly long haircuts so anyone out there with Rapunzel-esque length might want to consider a loose bun instead.

Happy styling!
