Your prom is probably the most important night of your life. Thus, just second to your prom dress would be the ideal hairstyle with all the needed elements to match your dress.
Now, most of you would have short hair and thus would wonder what styling options you have with such short tresses. However, having short hair for prom is not disadvantageous at all, and there are actually lots of styles you can work with.
Most importantly, you’ll need to understand what’s in trend this year and go with the flow. Check out what the celebrities are using for their hairstyles these days and learn from them.
Razor-cut Bob Hairstyle
As the most conventional hairstyle, all it takes is a razor to form sharp edges on the hair ends. This helps you to look trendy and at the same time, help your face shape look sharper than it already is. Cameras love this!
Wavy Prom Hair style
Do you usually have a straight bob? Then why don’t you go for curly or wavy on your prom night? This will surely make heads turn when you make an entrance looking utterly different from your usual self.
The Pixie Haircut
This classic hairstyle, which was very popular in the 50s, has made a comeback in recent hair trends. If you have long or medium length hair now, it may be an opportune time to switch to a sweet-looking pixie. With the right lip color and prom dress, you’ll look more feminine than those gals with longer tresses!
The Classic look in a Windswept hairstyle
Ever wanted the get-out-of-bed style contrasted with your proper prim and proper prom dress? Get a hair wash and then tease your layered hair to become as tousled as possible. You may want to go for some hairspray to set the messy hair in place. Top it off with some hair glitter and you’ll just look fab!
Long Fringe with Bob Haircut
This is excellent for those with round faces, or who intend to look thinner than they already are. To shorten the length of the face, the long fringe will help to cover the forehead, thus reducing the visible area of the face. An alternative to this hairstyle would be to come the fringe sideways to reveal some bits of the forehead.
An Emo hairstyle to turn heads
For a drastic difference to your look, you can also try out a short Emo hairstyle. It’s really just razor cut edges on medium length hair, coupled with thick black eyeliner around the eyes. You may even try some color or highlights on your emo style, and with the right prom dress, you are sure to turn heads!
Mohawk Hairstyle coupled with classic prom dress
If an emo style is just not outrageous enough for you, then perhaps a Mohawk hairstyle would do the trick. Contrast this with a classic or vintage gown to look absolutely gorgeous with some punk flavor at the same time!
Hair accessories to differentiate
Hair accessories are just great to draw attention with minimal effort. Plus, there’s a huge selection of accessories you can consider, and match them appropriately with your out fit. A simple hairclip will turn a straight down fringe to a side fringe, and a flowery head band will infuse some femininity to your overall style.
