Prom updos aren’t just an elegant way to put up your hair. Especially for Filipinas, they can keep things cool and fresh so you can enjoy the night and show off the details of your dress!

Prom updos are a natural choice for Filipinas attending this anticipated high school event. Why? Let’s face it, Filipinas going to their first couple of proms learn a valuable lesson about finding the balance between looking good and being comfortable at the same time. They don’t only need to find the perfect dress (that follows the school dress code), the right kind of makeup (that won’t make them look 10 years older), let alone a date (that their parents will allow them to get into a car with), they need to think about the literal heat of the night in the entire outfit. That’s why prom updos for Filipinas are an ideal hairstyle for this affair!

Here’s our round-up of prom updos to inspire you. We’ve chosen some unique prom hairstyles that combine classic hairstyles with details that give volume, exude elegance, and show your fun side for a night you won’t forget!
