As you ponder the perfect prom hairstyle for long hair, consider wearing it down. You?ve taken all the time and effort to grow out your hair, so why not flaunt it? Wash and comb your hair. When it is almost dry, part it off to the side and smooth gel from root to tip. After it is completely dry, take a large curling iron to add a little body to the ends. The gel will help the curl hold all night. Accessorize this basic look with a small headband that matches your dress or some glittery clips. Without an expensive trip to the salon you have created a simple yet attractive prom hairstyle for long hair.
Sometimes, the best part of having long hair is that you can create so many up-dos. Some of the best prom hairstyles for long hair come in the shape of buns or chignons. Pull your hair into a pony tail and then wrap the remaining hair in a circle around the rubber band, pinning as you go. You can also pin in small flowers as you create your bun. Letting your bangs or small wisps fall out of the sides of the bun create a soft frame for your face.
You can also try a more elegant, but slightly harder French twist. Again, start out with your hair in a loose pony tail. Twist the pony tail two or three times, then lift it to the top of your head and fold it until all your hair is between the back of your head and the nape of your neck. Now, start twisting this roll underneath the hair that didn?t go into the pony tail. As you twist, pin. French twists are lovely, but this prom hairstyle for long hair can take some practice.
