Prom hairstyles: hair hacks and hair inspiration for the big night

How to keep elegant Updos up?

A classic combination: slicked back top and a pretty, polished updo. Credit:

Double up on hairspray. And we mean, spritz it on before you style your hair, and after the updo has been made. Sure, the extra hold in TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray is legit, but think that times two! Your hair will have double the keep throughout the night.

Go for a classic updo. How about a Gibson Tuck? This Victorian hairstyle was originally more unruly than this polished updo; the Victorian era was all about volume, curls, and loops on their hair. If that doesn’t spell “formal social affair,” we don’t know what does!

Editor’s Tip: These days, you can easily recreate this hairstyle with a few twists and a ponytail. That is: part a section of your hair, twist it, and pin it to the back of your head. Repeat on the other side, then join these two twists into a low ponytail. Split the hair above the base of the pony and tuck the tail in. Easy, right?

Use a hair donut. While you may have been steering clear of carbs before prom night, this donut is an acceptable companion when you’re getting ready. Really, name us another donut that has ever made you look this good!
