Prom Hairstyles For Long Hair

We've had many requests for prom hair styles recently, so I wanted to share a few styles that I think would be pretty for Prom.  

Included in this "Formal Hairstyle Gallery" below are: Down do's, updos, curls, braids, buns, flower braids, waterfall braids, etc. I know some of you prefer sleek, sophisticated styles.... while others are envisioning more of a bohemian, slightly messy look to go with your Prom dress.  How fun!

My daughter (the model in these pictures) obviously has quite long hair, but some of these styles can be adapted for shorter hair as well. Hope you have a great time at your Prom!

  1. I enjoyed your variation of the waterfall braid.I have yet to try it myself, but I really love it.

  2. Thanks for the inspiration, will try out the Winding Snake Braid on my daughter who is now 4 years old. Hope she will like it :-)

    1. Hmm, I'm not exactly sure which style you are referring to. Sorry! We have a category on our right sidebar for "baby" which holds all of our toddler styles. Maybe you will find what you are looking for there. ;)

  4. I love the pinwheel!! Definitely doing that hairdo for prom!
