season is nearly upon us, so we thought it would be a grand ole idea to
give you lovely ladies some ideas and inspiration to achieve your
perfect prom hairstyles. If your hair is a bit on the short side, add
some HeadKandy hair extensions to give you that extra oomph and
superstar vibe; who doesn’t want to feel like a superstar on their prom
One of the hottest prom hair styles, inspired by New
York Fashion Week, has got to be the half-up half-down style, worn with a
little bouffant to add a touch of glamour ‒– you simply cannot go wrong
with this prom hairstyle, which can be worn with medium to long hair.
statement volume and a show-stopping finish, some hair extensions would
be a great option to thicken up the hair before it is split into two
sections. It is also wise to style your hair before you section it too
as once your hair is pinned up, and you begin styling, you’re bound to
pull hair out of place which will leave it looking a little untidy! Opt
for styling the bouffant first; backcomb from the top of your roots at
the back of your head going down as far as where you ‘up’ section is
going to finish, then hold in place with some bobby pins. For a
gorgeously girly prom hairstyle, add some loose, bouncy curls, not
forgetting to pull hair down either side to frame your face.
you’re not really a curly haired kind of girl then straight hair will
look equally gorgeous, it may be a little quicker for you to style too
;). Once your extensions are fitted and styled you can begin to section
off your hair; starting from the top of your ears taking the parting
around the middle of your head, and meeting at the back. Why
not finish your half-up half-down prom hairstyle with some beautiful
prom-style clips? We LOVE Carrie Underwood’s take on this style; she
looks super angelic with hair that just screams look at me!!
prom hairstyle, which has taken inspiration from this year’s Fashion
Weeks, is the high ponytail; it’s a hot trend for the coming Summer
months, so why not introduce the look at your prom?
can dress up, or dress down high ponytails, it all depends on how you
style and create them! We LOVED Nicole Richie's retro high ponytail,
which she was seen wearing at the Golden Globes, it reminded us of the
hairstyles which were created backstage at the Badgely Mischka Fall 2010
show. We’re enjoying the fact she has brought the look back this year
and it looks so elegant and eye-catching, it HAS to be someone's prom
‘do!! This prom hair style, again, will work better on medium to longer
hair; hair extensions would be ideal as you will have much more hair to
work with and when the hair falls at the back it will look incredible
with longer hair!! Creating this look is so simple; firstly pull up and
section off hair around the crown, tease and backcomb to create volume
then set aside whilst you attend to the rest of your hair. You then need
to brush out and smooth the back and sides of your hair, securing the
back section into a ponytail just below the crown of your head. You then
need to pull each side section back and wrap it around your ponytail,
securing in place with some bobby pins. Then all you need to do is
return to the top section (the bit you did first) and then lightly brush
and smooth back over your ponytail and voila, your superstar prom
hairstyle is born!
If you’re not so confident in trying this style then we have another you could try!! We are also loving Reese Witherspoon's high ponytail which looks so so elegant and is even easier to create!! Firstly,
you need to section your hair into two, so a bottom section and a top
section. Simply tease and back comb the top section of your hair to
create a little bouffant/quiff, secure in place with some bobby pins and
a clear elastic band. Then take the bottom section of your hair and
secure back into a ponytail with a clear elastic band, making sure that
it is placed directly under the top ponytail. If the top section is a
little too tight for you that way then there is an alternative look to
allow your hair to appear looser; pull all of your hair back into one
ponytail and secure with a hair band, you will then need to take some
bobby pins and flip your ponytail over the rest of your hair (basically
tip your head upside down), pop the bobby pins along the very top of the
underneath of your ponytail, so just above your hair band, so the hair
falls back over the bobby pins to create a waterfall kind of effect! And
there you have it! HOW easy does that sound?!
a more dramatic and statement look be sure to fit some hair extensions
before you start to style and pull the hair back, the hair extensions
will help you look like you have just stepped off the red carpet!
are another hot prom hairstyle taken straight
from the Fashion Weeks; they are such a hot trend right now! Braids will
tend to work better on medium to longer hair as the more hair you have
to braid, the more significant the braid will look; if you’re a little
short on length then be sure to fit some hair extensions before you
begin to braid to give you a show-stopping look!
LOVE braids here at HeadKandy and we have a sneaky feeling they will be
a popular look for proms of 2012! Our favourite prom style braids have
got to be the fishtail braid, the four strand braid, and the french
braid round to a side ponytail. These tend to be a little tricky if
you’re new to braiding, but after some practice, you can create these in
no time at all :) Or you can just ask a friend or family member if
they’re a dab hand at braiding!
So ladies, to create the perfect hair style, first pop over to HeadKandy to get your full head of hair extensions for a super glamorous and oh-so-thick look!
