Tips on Finding your Ideal Prom Hair Long Styles

  • If you have a low cut dress I always recommend having your hair hanging over your shoulders.
  • An evening style can either be worn curly or straight, either looks fashionable.
  • Make sure that your prom hairstyle is not stuck down with too much hair spray, you want your hair to flow when you dance.
  • Page through the latest fashion magazines, to get ideas on what prom hair long styles that would suit you best.
  • Prom hair long styles at a top salon can unfortunately cost a small fortune so to save money, choose one of the above styles and ask your friends to help you out with styling it.
  • Use the GHD soft iron to do soft curls around your face. Clip your hair with a beautiful hair clip, there are so many on the market. Look at all the options of hair accessories that can match your dress.
  • Take a few photos of yourself with different prom hair long styles. That way you can see which styles would suit you best.
  • Personally I am not big fan of evening up styles for prom night. I would suggest just wearing your hair loose and natural. Guys love the loose soft hair around your face rather than it being pulled up tight. Thats my personal choice as a hairstylist.
  • Speak to your stylist and see what prom hair long styles they would recommend to you.
