8 Most Delightful Prom Updos for Long Hair
The main trend is a natural look in everything. Most trendy updos are loose and little messy. Voluminous chignons, abundance of strasses and colorful clip extensions go to the past. Any braiding, including French braids, are in trend. Stylish buns are also going to be in the mainstream. For more chic you can embellish your bun with a classy tiara or thin hoops. Asymmetric hairstyles, covering one ear, are another trendy solution for prom hairstyles in the coming season. Generally your updo should look young, fresh, girly, rather spontaneous and not too laborious. Try not to choose hairstyles which make you look too adult.
1: Elegant Twist Updo
This stunning look is a great way to show off your highlighted locks. The peekaboo tattoo is super cool too. Ask your stylist for loose twists that create an overall simple and sleek effect. Because the hair is not overly sprayed, it has a perfectly imperfect vibe.
2: Accent Braid Prom Updo
Prom hairstyles can be as wild and crazy as you want, or like this style, they can be cute and feminine. For a really easy style that you could even do at home if you wanted, try a curly messy bun with an accent braid and face-framing wisps of hair.
3: Messy Bun with Long Side Pieces
For a cute prom look that will go really well with just about any dress, opt for a side french braid near the crown and a curled messy bun. A teased poof in the back and curled long side pieces in the front make the style formal in addition to fun.
4: Formal Dutch Fishtail Updo
Instead of creating a braid that goes along your hairline like a headband, try this version of the accent braid: start at your part and work down towards the ear then across the back of the head. To succeed at this style, section off the hair for the braid and create the loose bun first.
5: Long Cascading Curls
Hair for prom doesn’t have to be all the way up. A sassy pony with tons of volume like this one will go especially well with flowy Grecian or boho dresses. Pair the long hair look with dangly earrings or sparkly barrettes on the big night.
6: Fishtail Florette Updo
Some prom updos are simply amazing! We’re pretty much blown away by this florette braid, which will be a fun style to practice with your friends. Spreading the braid out is crucial with this updo.
7: Classic French Twist
French twists are among the hairdos that will never go out of style. This look will be a beautiful addition to a sleek monochromatic minidress or mermaid silhouette gowns. If you’re wondering how to create such a loose updo that lasts all night, the answer is to use texturizing spray and hair spray before you even start pinning.
8: Tousled Updo for Long Hair
Up hairstyles for long hair that have flowy wisps and imperfect waves are always stunning. You can do this messy French twist on the base of a pony wrapping separate strands around its base and moving lower towards the nape of the neck.
