8th Grade Dance Hairstyle Tutorial and Dress! Princess Hairstyles

Gorgeous braided crown half up hairstyle tutorial.

Today we are showing a hair tutorial and fashion video in one, featuring the pretty braided hairstyle and dress she wore to her eighth grade dance!

Recently my daughter went to the traditional end of middle school dance. This dance is typically a semi formal occasion in our area which some teens have nicknamed the "8th grade Prom" or "eighth grade graduation." This dance is the last celebration before entering High School as a Freshman!

She wanted a half up half down hairstyle with braids, so this is what we came up with.  We have combined french braids, lace braids, feather braids, and a loop braid technique to create a delicate braided crown design.  This hairstyle is fairly simple and classic, yet eye catching and elegant. Truly a "Princess Hairstyle" that could be worn for many special occasions: Communions, Homecoming, Prom, church, recitals, graduation, weddings (both for brides or flower girls hairstyles) etc.

After creating her cute braided tie back hairstyle, we added some curls off camera.  Our "Curling Wand Curls Tutorial" from a few years ago can be found here.

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
  • Clip or hair tie to temporarily hold one side of the braid while you are braiding the other side.
  • Hairspray, pomade, wax, or gel to help prevent flyaways.
  • 1 medium size clear elastic.
  • Curling wand, curling iron, rollers or other curling device (optional, if you want curls.)
The Dress:

She was hoping to find a dress that was fancy, but not too "over the top" formal.  We both fell in love with the adorable and fashionable white chiffon shift dress shown in our video (above) from JCPenney.  I could not find a link to the exact dress online, but here are a few very similar dresses on amazon (affiliate.)

The necklace shown with the dress in our video is also from JCPenney.  Her ankle boots are from Old Navy.
