THE 8 BEST PROM HAIRSTYLES FOR 2014

Buns and braids hairtyleBuns and Braids

A big hair bun wrapped ceremoniously in braids is fun yet sophisticated for heart or diamond shaped faces. This hairstyle looks just as great on women with long, thick hair when pulled back straight. You can attach clip-in hair extensions in the same, or contrasting, color of your dress in the braids.

Vintage

Pretty, soft, classic, the vintage hairstyle goes with any dress neckline and ideal for short hair that has been layered. Square, diamond, and heart shaped faces look awesome with this hairstyle. If you have curly hair, soften them with just a little hairspray, let them cool completely and brush lightly with a bristle brush.

Fun and funky, that’s how fishtail braids are on practically any face shape, but especially for those with thick hair. Highlights have a terrific way of making fishtail braids fabulous by bringing out the hair’s natural texture and adding dimension to its strands.

Modern Up-do

Give this classic a modern twist with curls. The placement of curls at the back of the head is unconventional, but the swept up styling still accentuates the face. Just ensure that you have picked out on what side the fringes of the curls will be before they are pinned up at the back.

Cropped cuts are eye-catching on Prom night, too! Square, heart, and round shaped faces will look very attractive short hairstyles but more so for those who have straight, medium-to-thick hair. Make sure your hair color looks shiny and fresh and not all grown out on the special night.

Rose Twist

A fresh, new take on the classic French twist, this hairstyle involves wrapping hair around to create a twist that’s rose shaped near the nape. Medium length, thick hair and diamond, oval, and heart shaped faces will look glamorous with this hairstyle. Tip: continue wrapping hair while moving up to avoid ending up with an excessively large rose bun.

Pile up soft curls to create volume for the hair, making sure that the look at the back is just as beautiful as in front. Hold a mirror to check if the style is in place. This hairstyle is simple but considered a classic and is most suitable for those with naturally wavy hair to achieve that overall soft look.

Vixen

Easy to do, fun to wear, and will definitely bring out the va va voom in you for Prom night! An excellent choice of hairstyle for those with heart or diamond shaped faces and medium-to-thick, shoulder length hair. Wear a halter, one strap or strapless dress with this hairstyle and add a sparkly or sequined barrette or headband to complete the Vixen image.
