Add a twist to a regular bun hairstyle by combining it with a rope braid. The French rope braid updo can even complement a tube-style or off-shoulder ball gown and let you show off your beautiful decolletage.

Editor’s tip: If you love having long hair, make sure you help maintain its strength so you can nail any hairstyle. We recommend washing it with Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo, which has Biotin to help strengthen and nourish your hair. 

2. Half Crown Braid

This hairstyle allows you to braid your hair while showcasing your long, cascading locks. Instead of using a real headband at the top front of your hair, braid your hair at the back of your head to create a crown. You can even add a beaded or gemmed accessory for a glamorous and elegant finish.

Editors tip: Though messy hairstyles are in, you still don’t want your hair to be frizzy. Apply a drop of TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops to keep your hair shiny and sleek all night.

3. Twisted Chignon for Curly Hair

The chignon is quite popular as a fabulous hairstyle for any special occasion, including prom night. And you can definitely make one even if you have naturally curly hair. Try this hairstyle if you want to put your kulot hair up.

4. Waterfall Braid

You don’t have to go for overly sophisticated prom hairstyles just to achieve that glamorous look. A waterfall braid can do the job just as well. Go for this ‘do when you want a dainty look on your big night.

Editor’s tip: You don’t want the waterfall braid to fall while you’re slow-dancing with your partner. Keep it in place with VO5 Firm Hold Hairspray, which offers an all-day hold sans the sticky residue. 

5. Sleek Low Bun

Who says buns have to be boring? A sleek, low bun is perfect if you want an easy and simple updo. And with your hair up, you can showcase a pair of beautiful earrings that you reserved for this night.

Editor’s tip: Prep your hair by washing it with Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Shampoo. It helps make your hair soft and easier to style. Plus, its five flower essences can make your hair smell great, too! 

6. Side-swept Dutch Braid

Who doesn’t like the classic Hollywood curls that have been around for so long? You too can achieve this hairstyle using a curling iron with a large barrel. This looks great especially on long, healthy hair, so make sure to pamper your locks with a hair mask treatment weeks before your prom.

Editor’s tip: Before you curl your hair, apply VO5 Big Volume Mousse on your hair to help boost your hair’s volume and define your curls without weighing your hair down.

10. Braided Twist Updo
