Ahhhh yes. Updos. Smell that in the air? That’s right! It’s PROM SEASON! These updo hairstyles are just the thing to top off any prom look you dare to pull. For your prom, keep your hair out of our face and out of your way, so you can have all the fun!
1. Braided, Bun, Beautiful
Oh c’mon. Who doesn’t love a little wrapped-around-your-head braided action? A cute way to get your hair all in a twist, this braided hairstyle is a prom favourite! Elegant, wearable with most looks – its as versatile as it is stunning!
2. Heightened Ponytail
This ponytail will add some serious volume to any prom look you bring to the table. Twirl and twist the ends of your hair to give yourself some extra volume! Also, add some fun hair pins to give it a messy yet chic air.
3. Messy Cinnamon Bun
This top bun is really the icing on your – well – cinnamon bun! With all your hair pulled up to the top of your head, but woven into an almost braid-like bun, you’ll have a sweet tasty treat bouncing on the top of your prom outfit! Pull out a couple strands of hair for that real boho look.
4. Bump It Up!
Give your prom look the action it needs with a big ol’ bump! Bump the top of your hair up, and then pull the rest of your hair into a luscious ponytail. Curl the bottom pieces as well to give some extra volume. This gives your hair some extra flavour, but still keeps it classic.
5. Structured Bun
This bun is a beautiful, structured, high fashion LEWK. Pulling your hair back into a sleek bun is already very fierce, but using your hair to create a caged bun completely heightens the look. Bring something original and creative to your prom – this hair is subtle, yet a show stopper.
6. Vintage Side Sweep
Ooh-la-la! This updo has all the glamour and va-VA-VOOM of a 30s movie star, but is still very fresh for this year’s prom. With a sleek side bun and a big, dramatic bang in the front, this is a gorgeous retro hairstyle.
7. Heaven Up Top
This bun, a sleek updo with a curvy, cloudy bun situated at the very top, works with just about any prom look you could want. Bringing up your hair in this way is a classic AND sexy hairstyle! Keeping the front of your face sleek while having some messy but contained action in the back is just dreamy!
8. The Brigitte Bardot
This updo is some serious Brigitte Bardot realness. Giving your prom look a vintage hairstyle like this one is a glamorous way to heighten (literally) your look. Pull your hair and bump it up, but by keeping it less sleek, the look is casual and fun!
9. Dutch Girl
This super cool look might not work with every prom outfit, but for the ones it does go with, it is a sick updo to give your look some high fashion. Keeping your hairdo sleek and knotted in Dutch girl fashion is unexpected and exciting!
10. Top Bun
This bun is not only very on trend, but an elegant look that will keep any looks incredibly cool. This updo could alternatively be a knot instead of a bun, if that works with your outfit! The strands of hair falling at the sides of your face frame will also frame you beautifully!
