18 Lovely Prom Hairstyles

QA with Master Hairstylist Co-Owner How would you describe this appearance? New and sophisticated. For a very simple but powerful purpose, I really like the look – it’s flexible and easy to handle. It doesn’t take any upkeep or trips to the hair salon from its color and that’s what we all want! The suggestions that someone feels about it? I always make it clear when making this look that it needs to be tailored so I suggest you get a thermally active protector from Redken specifically One United for all the benefits it has. Color-wise you should have a healthy hair to hold on to the color, so I suggest that you keep a high-end shampoo or mask at home.

Master Stylist Copper Red Short Wavy Bob

QA How would you describe this look? This is a textured bob through the tresses with waves. The duration that we agreed on together matched the form and personality of her head. To formal events and galas, bobs are the most flexible when it comes to short hairstyles. The inner layers we gave her are my favorite thing about this slice. Not only did the internal layers give her texture and reduce the weight of control, but she can also wear this sleek or straight cut without seeing lines from shears (which so many stylists still use). The suggestions that someone feels about it? Anyone who worries about this break should also think about the seasons. I suggest you wait until the humidity goes down in the air if you’re considering going super short. The more weight you get, the more you can use a product to control frizz. In order to give her some softness and texture, we used a curl cream and sea salt spray. Instead of scrunching the hair. I took 2-inch pieces across my fingers twisted each piece and lowered it. Then with a hot hat I defused the entire head and brushed the curls with a curling wand after it was completely dry.

Prom hairstyles for short hair, especially if it’s fine hair, can be a little challenging to style. Intentionally, layering materials helped to give the comfort I needed to hold and wear durability.

Short Prom Braids


QA with Hairstylist This is a short formal style but it would also be great for a fun trip to the beach or a music festival. I think it’s the right style for any age. It’s so fun, it’s so boho-chic. I love the double dutch braid which gives the style a lot of texture. Braids for prom hairstyles for short hair may not be considered, but if your hair is long enough it may look very cute and trendy. The suggestions that someone feels about it? Braids seem to lock up much better when there is some structure in the hair so I definitely recommend using a spray of texture and/or curling the hair before doing the braids. Make sure to use a good holding hairspray (I am a big fan of Big Sexy Spray and Stay All Nightter Hairspray) and also a vibrant spray once you have your braid fixed securely in place. It’s very nice to keep your hair out of your eyes as well. Most times when you dance away at the prom the night you can get a little sweaty so this look is great to keep those fly-aways from sticking to your forehead. ‘
