We know that prom isn’t right around the corner, but it does take you by surprise and you may find yourself clueless as to how you’re going to style your hair. We want to make it easy for you and get you inspired for prom extra early, as nothing beats preparing in advance for your big night out. One of the ways we do that is by scouring through the latest prom hairstyle trends, and our current formal hairstyle obsession we all have screenshotted is pinned hairstyles. These looks use some nifty tricks with bobby pins to create styles that look way more complicated to create than they really are, which, of course, is super clutch for a DIY look.

Check out these three different pinned hairstyles that are perfect for prom. Take some time to check out the video tutorials and practice these styles before the big day!

Pinned Hairstyles for Prom

1. Wrapped Pony

This style is so sleek and elegant, perfect for prom.

The wrapped pony is by far the easiest of the pinned hairstyles to create, and it’s great for formal events or to spice up an everyday ponytail. Create whatever type of ponytail you want, and then grab a small section from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic. Secure the wrap with a few pins and you’re done! You can add some shine and reduce frizz by using a small amount of Dove Amplified Textures Shine & Moisture Finishing Gel on your style.

2. Pinned Half Updo

This style may look complicated, but it’s incredibly easy to create!

Despite how complicated this style looks, it’s so easy to create. Simply take a section from one side and pin it to the other, and take a section from the other side and pin it at a slight downward angle to create a criss-cross effect. Continue doing this with as many sections as you like. Give your hair added body with a few spritzes of TRESemmé Premium Styling Volume Boost Spray.

3. Low Bun

For those willing to go a little more complex, we’ll teach you how to create a chic low bun style. This is by far one of our favorite pinned hairstyles because it’s a classic prom vibe. Make sure to create some volume spraying some Bed Head by TIGI Masterpiece Hairspray at the roots before creating this look.
