5 Hairstyles for Prom

Soft Waves

If you have long, layered hair, this could be the look for you: Big, soft curls cascading away from your face. This is a stunning style if you're OK with having your hair down for the night. Like the sleek ponytail, you can easily create this hairstyle at home if you've got the right equipment (a large-barrel curling iron and some strong-hold hairspray). Make sure to try out this look before the big night in order to see how well your hair keeps its curl. Remember, it could rain, so you'll want to see how your 'do holds up in less-than-perfect conditions.
