Red Carpet Hair Styles
If you are looking for some great ideas for hairstyles for this prom, take some inspiration from the red carpet. Listed below are some of the hottest Hollywood hairstyles for big events.
Everyone from Evan Rachel Wood to Anna Kournikova is wearing this easy style that can look stylishly tousled or sleek and elegant. To form a chignon (a fancy term for a bun at the back of your head) decide if you want it low or high and then make a ponytail. Wrap the ponytail around itself to form a bun and secure it with bobby pins. You can tuck the ends in for sleek elegance or leave them out for a more casual look.
Hair accessories have hit the red carpet with a vengeance this year and they are sure to add some extra pizzazz to your prom hair. Try adding a tiara, fancy clips, rhinestone combs, a flower, or a ribbon headband to instantly move your style from boring to beautiful.
If you just cant decide whether to wear your hair down or up this year, take a cue from the celebrities and do both. A halfway up hairstyle is a great way to show off your beautiful face and clear your hair away for when you want to get crazy on the dance floor. To create the look, simply brush the top of your hair back and secure it with braids, clips, combs or a small French twist.
Whether you have naturally curly hair or not, waves are hot in Hollywood and on the prom floor. To create waves, either set your hair in hot rollers or have a friend gently curl it with a curling iron. When styling your waves, run your fingers through them instead of brushing to keep some definition. You can keep your hair flat on top or let it wave all the way to the crown of your head.
For a simple, yet elegant style, take your cue from Mandy Moore and Kelly Clarkson. Pull your hair back into a French twist (click here for more detailed instructions). Then, for a more modern style, tease your tresses up at the top of your head. This style is quick, easy, and guaranteed to please.
