How can I get a classy prom or formal hairstyle? First, you need a medium to long hair. You also need a few ponytail holders, gels, and extended pins. The trick to making your updo look best is to use a few of these pins in different directions to hold your hair in place. Don’t rely too much on hair gel because this will only make your hair stiff. You want your hair to retain moisture, but your date can also touch it.
You want your curly hair loose. The loose and bigger the curls, the sweeter you are. First, pull your hair up, use baby powder to add fullness, and then tease your hair. Other looks are more classic, like French Twist. You have to style your hair with gel. Separate on the side and pull the hair down. You may need mouse hair help. No, not a real mouse. You can get it at a beauty supply store. This will help you pull your hair down if your hair is smooth. You still need a lot of long pins.
Starting with straight hair, you can use large curlers to get those lovely big curls. Once you have it, you can place it above your head backward. You don’t want your hairstyle to make your face look too long unless you have a round face, and that will help balance your geometry. You can use a cleansing serum to give you a sleek, sophisticated look. Make sure you use a lot of pins, flexible hairspray, not the retaining max, and gel if you need it.
Experiments before prom will be the key. Use what works best for your hair. Find some pictures on the web; try with these ideas using pins, gels, and hairspray.
