Prom Hairstyles for Long Hair

The prom is one occasion that most teens look forward to. You may sometimes wonder if it is worth all the fuzz —finding a date, prettifying yourself, and throwing down some hard earned cash— just for one night. All of this stress can make anyone want to throw her hat and surrender. But a prom, though not mandatory, is a momentous event that is worth remembering. You have to go and make the experience a part of your life’s archive that you would want to reminisce when you are old and gray.
When at the prom, you want to make sure that everything is perfect. Your hairstyle should match with your dress, shoes, and makeup. To pick the right hairstyle for your long hair, you need to follow the following guidelines:

Personality Type

In that august hall of dance aficionados, all you want is a better version of yourself. You need to know your personality type to create this new persona: sophisticated, hipster, alpha female, or casual. Changing your persona to somebody that is not you, may leave you uncomfortable and uptight to fully enjoy the scene. If you are somebody casual, leave the more formal and funky updos to others, and stick to the traditional and casual.

Hair Texture

The choice of hairstyle would depend on your hair texture. Fine hair would need much work to make it fluffy and create more volume. Coarser hair could be sculpted and styled to create Grecian buns and hair sprays to hold it down. Nonetheless, straight hair can be curled into ornate updos, and; curly hair can be straightened to half down/half up hair styles.

Choice of Clothes

The choice of hairstyle would depend on the type of dress that you will wear. A Grecian inspired gown will not look good with a funky hairdo. A classic dress will not look good if you come up with a frizzy and modern hairstyle. Your choice of updo must complement your dress and not compete with it.
