Best Classic and Contemporary Hairstyles For Prom Nights

Aug 25, 2008
The Prom night is one of the most important and special occasions in every young girl's life. Everything must be prepared before the big night--the outfit, shoes, the wheels, perfume, make-up, and to top it all--the hairstyle.

Going Classic

Young ladies have so many choices when it comes to prom night hairstyles. The most common hairdos during this special occasion are updos, half updos and down dos. Each of these categories has exceptional hairstyles that would match any prom dress. Half updos are often best for this occasion because the hairstyles under this category are easy to create and there are no complex buns or chignons to make. The hair can also be propped pretty much like the down do and it can be pinned at the back for a depiction of elegance. These are the most common half updo hairstyles:

* Pinned back curls
* The High Sweep updo
* High Ponytail
* Side Ponytail

These can be done by pleating the front of the hair and the rest should fall on both sides. This hairdo can be added with curls. Curled hair can be pinned at the back while the front hair has a full fringe. High and side ponytails are both hassle-free hairdos and are best for those who were not able to prepare well. Although these two can be done in just a few minutes, the results are still charming.

2008 Prom Dos

The 2008 prom season bring about many fashionable hairstyles. Most of these were taken from celebrities' hairstyles during red carpet awards nights and premiers. Short hair is quite popular for prom night 2008 and the common choices include the bob and crop. These haircuts give emphasis to the feminine features of the wearer. Medium hairstyles, on the other hand, is comprised of the sleek look and added curls. The longer versions include the trendy updos and the left-flowing hairstyle.

* Short hairstyles are often smooth to depict glamour. This can be done by making sections of the hair and smoothing them out. The front hair (which is also the widest section) must be swept to forehead. Each of the sides should be styled close to the wearer's face. This is a popular choice because it softens the features of person who wears it. Paddle brush can then be used to re-style the hair after a few hours of dancing. The edges can be smoothened with the use of a flat iron.

* A variation of the short hairstyle is to do all of the above except that the sides have to be combed to the ears and not left to flow. Either way, the young girl would surely catch one young man's attention.

Medium-length hairstyles are versatile and would instantly look glamorous with the addition of a few curls. The secret is to have a sweeping fringe and added curls to the locks. Half updos also do well with medium length hair. These styles look formal and can be worn with the best prom dresses.

Long hair would never go wrong during prom night especially when proper hairstyling was done. There are much more choices for young ladies with long hair. There is the casual bun; the half updo; the sweeping fringe with added curly locks; parted hair with flicked edges; etc.
