Prom Hair Styles we Find Irresistible

Prom hair season is just around the corner and it’s not too early to be working on what to do with your hair. Sure the dress is got to be to-die-for and the shoes can be nothing less than perfect but . . . the hair, well the hair must turn heads!  The most irresistible hairstyles are not always perfect, but they are healthy, flowing, romantic, and have a personality of their own.

Here are some of our favorite hairstyles for prom we think you should consider.  And because we believe that you will find these hairstyles irresistible too, we provided easy steps to help you recreate these looks at home.  Just give yourself a few practice sessions to get it right.

You can create this look at home in 6 easy steps.

  1. Wash, condition, and blow dry your hair.
  2. Smooth your hair with a flat-iron, or style it with a curling iron. This hairstyle usually looks best with curly hair.
  3. Pull your hair back, and create a low, loose ponytail.
  4. Part your hair at the base of your ponytail, and stuff the strands of your hair inside of the part. To create the most realistic effect, tuck the hair under the ponytail.
  5. Pin the hair in place. The pins will give the support that you need to keep your hair up while you’re getting down on the dance floor.
  6. Loosen up some strands around your face and crown area and mist lightly with a finishing spray!

Vintage, Soft Waves are Romantic

  1. Blow dry your hair using a smoothing serum and a large round brush. This should leave your hair smooth and full of body.
  2. Curl your hair in sections using a wide-barrel curling iron. The width of the barrel directly affects how lose the waves will be. We recommend using a curling iron that is at least 1.5 inches to create this look.
  3. Apply finishing styling products. A light leave-in conditioner to smooth frizz and a flexible hair spray to give longevity are wonderful options to put the last touches on your hair style.

  1. Think about what texture you envision for your hair style. Your options are limitless because this versatile hairstyle looks incredible with every texture.
  2. Prepare your hair. Once you have decided on a desired texture, create it.  Create straight hair with a flat-iron or curly hair with rollers or a curling iron.
  3. Tie your hair in a low ponytail leaving out strands around your face.
  4.  Wrap your hair around the ponytail to create bun.
  5. Secure the hair with an elastic band or a few bobby pins. Once your hair is secure, spray lightly with a finishing spray and your hairstyle is complete!

Spring Hair Trends

Spring Hair Trends that will Leave you Speechless Spring is a subtle season, but the hair trends for the coming up season are far from discreet. Check out this article to discover the latest trends, and learn how to create these hairstyles at home! Retro Hairstyles are a Blast from the Past Retro hairstyles are making a big comeback this year. Finger waves, barrel curls, and chignons are only a few examples of old Hollywood glam that have already made a huge impact. One of the hottest looks on the red carpet this year is finger waves. These waves are tricky to set, but you can cheat by using a triple barrel curling iron to create similar results.  Start near the scalp and work your way down until the entire strand is wavy. Bright, Bold Hair Colors are Lighting Up the Runways Bright hair colors are fun and exciting for those daring enough to try them. Now is your chance to let loose because this spring it’s fashionable to draw inspiration for your new hair color from a box of crayons! You can create this trendy look with a semi-permanent hair color. This type of hair color only lasts for a few weeks, unless your hair is overly porous, making it an excellent option. If a bold semi-permanent hair color sounds like right fit for you, I recommend using a well-known brand like Manic Panic. They have a wide assortment of bright, edgy hair colors that you can choose from along with directions to create your desired result. Center Parts are Stealing Our Hearts The center part is a crisp, classic style that is making its mark in 2012. You can see this hair trend in the latest magazines, runways, and red carpets. This is a simple style that almost anyone can duplicate. All you have to do to create this look is part your hair down the middle. That’s it! If you want to create a softer style, mess up your part with your fingers. This will create a softer look that makes your center part stand apart from the rest. The Wet Look has Officially Gone from Frumpy to Fabulous Yes, this year it is stylish to look like you just stepped out of the shower. The best thing about this hairstyle is that it works for all hair types. The wet look is easy to create. All you have to do is apply Argan oil to your hair. If you love texture, mix hair gel and oil in equal parts. Then, apply the mixture to create a cool twist of this modern hairstyle.  Buy.com sells affordable Argan oil shine treatments. Bring out your inner fashionista, and be the first one of your friends to try a new Spring 2012 hair trend!
