7 Trendy Prom Updos

Dig up the bobby pins, the clear elastics, and the strongest hairspray you own — it's prom time, ladies. Whether you’re rocking a high neck dress, or you don’t want to worry about your curls falling flat all night, you can’t go wrong with one of these 7 trendy prom updos.

1. Double Dutch Braid with a Bun

Moment of truth — there’s a certain level of confidence you must have to rock double braids at prom. But if you choose to, we'd be oh-so-proud.

2. Messy Bun Updo

This messy bun is classy without being overdone. Just be prepared to pull 200 bobby pins out of your head on prom night.

3. Ballerina Bun

We know we have some minimalists out there, and we love you all. No need to fuss with a complicated prom hairstyle when you can rock a simple and chic ballerina bun.

4. Braided Top Knot

A slicked-back style is one of the top trends this prom season and gives you the freedom to play around with funky makeup and statement jewelry.

5. Double Braid with a Low Bun

These dainty braids don’t require thick tresses and can be accomplished with nearly any hair type. We’re totally picturing this style with a flowy boho dress.

6. Undone Curly Bun

The “undone” look is supposed to look a bit messy… like everything’s out of place but exactly where it should be at the same time.

7. Ballerina Bun with Braided Crown

If you want to take the everyday ballerina bun up a notch, try adding a chunky braided crown. It’s a perfect chance to show off blunt bangs.
