Your prom is around the corner and there’s nothing you want more than to have the perfect prom hairstyle to match your perfect prom dress. With long hair, you’ll have lots of hairstyles to choose from. Most importantly, your prom hairstyle will need to be a good match for your face shape and also your dress type.
Very loose curls in a half up half down hairstyle
One of the ways to look really sexy but regal at the same time, is to put on loose curls in a half up half down and match them with a v-shaped back dress. To make these curls, you just need a curling iron to define the ends of your hair. Then, tie half of them up and leave the rest hanging down your back.
Long Ponytail and long gown
For instance, if you have a long ponytail braid flowing down your back, you can probably match a mermaid shaped gown or similar long gowns. The long braid will accentuate your long gown and probably even make you seem taller and slimmer than you actually are!
Empire Dress with Bun Hairstyle
On the other hand, if you have an empire dress, you’d probably want to look regal and loyal. To top it off with the right hairstyle, go for a bun hairstyle or up-do. There are many types of buns you can work with – the messy bun, braided bun, low hanging bun or even an easy-knotted bun.
Body hugging dress with wavy long hair
If you are putting on a body-hugging short dress, and you are petite in size, then the best hairstyle for you would be to have straight hair with waves at the ends. This can easily be achieved with a curling iron and some hair spray to keep them wavy.
Short fringe dress with Flappers hairstyle
Another type of dress that would be fun for prom is the short fringe dress, which makes you look like you just stepped out from the 30s. Top this off with a matching 30s flappers finger wave hairstyle and you will definitely stand out from the crowd!
Soft and short flowing dresses with Wavy Hair
The wavy hairstyle accentuates the soft and short flowing dresses that work well for those with apple body shapes. Notice how the waistline is hidden in this type of dress, while the short length shows off the nice legs.
Cocktail dresses with a French ponytail braid
Cocktail dresses have the ability to let you look sweet and sexy at the same time. To make sure you complete the look, pull your hair back and tie it up with a French ponytail braid at the back.
Long hair set to the side with a sequined dress
If you are out of ideas for your long hair, why not just set your hair to the side and let it down loose? This is also great if you have curly long hair. All you need to do is to pull your hair to the side, set it in place with a hairclip at the back and make sure it stays in place with hair spray. Or you can tie it up in a low side ponytail.
Long curly ponytail tied up high with a strapless dress
This style is surreal and works just as well for a wedding as well as a prom. If you have a strapless gown with nothing much on the shoulders, this prom hairstyle is excellent to draw attention above your shoulders. While this looks elaborate and probably need the help of a stylist to get done, you’ll probably love the impact it makes on you!
