This gorgeous twisted crown hairstyle may be easy enough to do on yourself as a DIY prom hairstyle! No difficult braiding skills are required, just a simple twisting technique (that anyone can do) will create this glamorous princess hairstyle.
Our neighbor asked if I would do her hair for Prom recently and this was the style she requested in the form of a photo. The hairstyle turned out so beautiful on her and looked stunning with her Prom dress, so we thought we would share this Prom hair tutorial in case any of you are looking for a formal hairstyle to wear to your next dance, wedding, or fancy event! Although this style is quite simple, I think it is really gorgeous.

You'll notice in our tutorial that we show a little trick to place volume at the crown of her head without having to tease her hair (which can be damaging and a pain to comb out later.) We also show how to cover the elastic in the center of the hairstyle in a way that blends in nicely with the twists and doesn't require any additional bobby pins or elastics.
Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
- 2 medium size, clear hair elastics.
- To create natural looking, soft, loose curls, we used our "reverse curling wand" (affiliate.)
- Before applying heat, you may want to use heat protectant to help minimize the damage to your hair. The one we have been using and is shown in our video is from TRESemme (affiliate.)
- Finishing hairspray.
This hairstyle is similar to the Aurora hairstyle (inspired by Disney's "Maleficent") that we did over on the Disney Style YouTube channel a few years ago. If you love this look, you can check that out to see another technique for creating a twisted half up style.
