Before your big night, make sure you have all hairstyling essentials so prepping would be smooth and hassle-free. Here are some recommended styling products that you must have on your dresser:

1. TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray

Creating waves? How about updos? This hairspray can help make your hairstyle last long. With its lightweight, weather-resistant formula, this hairspray also won’t weight your hair down or leave a sticky residue.

2. TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray

When creating braids and various updos, a little texture can give your hair more grip. This way, it will be easier for you to braid, twist, and style your hair. Sea salt spray can also make braids and waves hold their shape for hours.

3. TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops

Hair serum makes for a great finishing touch. It makes your hair shiny, so it’s perfect for pin-straight down ‘dos or sleek high ponytails. Hair serum also helps fight frizz, so if you have stray hair strands sticking out of your updos, put a small drop of serum on your palms and gently smooth your hair down.

Putting your long hair up seems like the rule when dressing up for prom. Let your updo stay up all night long with these easy tips.

1. Double up on hairspray.

And we mean, spritz it before you style your hair, and after the updo has been made. Your hair will have double hold throughout the night.

2. Go for a classic updo.

Try chignon hair! It’s easy to do. Plus, this classic hairstyle goes well with any kind of dress, whether it’s a long, floor-length evening gown or a knee-length cocktail dress. You just need a hair tie and a few bobby pins, and you’re all set.

3. Use a hair donut

Not a fan of chignons and buns? Try braids! They’re just as lovely, not to mention romantic–perfect for that magical, dreamy night.

1. Waterfall braid

Editor’s Tip: Don’t let dandruff ruin your prom night! Wash your hair with Clear Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. If your hormones, the heat, or stress are messing with your scalp and causing you to get unsightly flakes, you know what you need. Nourish your scalp from root to tip to make it healthy again.

2. Halo braid

You can even listen to your favorite music while you do this to get you pumped up for prom night!

Editor’s Tip: Get a boost of volume by applying TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse on your hair before curling. It’s sure to add body to even the flattest hair types.
