Headband

Bring more attention to your curls by simply adding in a headband to your hairstyle. This is a great way to show off the fullness of your beautiful curls! If you’re in a rush to get to the big dance, then this hairstyle is perfect for giving you an effortless beauty that took no time at all. With this hairstyle, you’ll always have a matching accessory for your dress.

TopKnot

If you want a hairstyle that leaves an impression, then consider wearing your hair in a topknot. This look is great for anyone who wants a more elegant style. What’s great about the topknot is that there are so many different ways to wear it. If one isn’t speaking to you, then just try on another! This box braided style is just one way you can pull off this hairstyle. Whether you decide to put all your hair in a topknot or just pull up half, this look will have people turning their heads.

Ponytail

A ponytail can complement several prom dress styles, and is the perfect hairstyle for anyone who wants to keep their hair out of their face on the dance floor. We love this look with natural hair because it shows off your voluminous hair against your head. If you’re feeling creative, then adding in a braid or two on the side can give this hairstyle some extra personality. The best part about this hairstyle is that it won’t take you all night to do, leaving you with more time to celebrate with friends!

Low Bun

This is another hairstyle that’s easy to do, but makes you look even more elegant with your beautiful dress. Just pull back your hair in a bun at the nape of your neck and you’re ready to dance without worrying about your hair getting in the way. Have you been dying to show off your jewelry, like earrings or necklaces? Now with this style you can make all your gorgeous accessories stand out. Not only will your accessories get some added attention, but this hairstyle will also allow your makeup to be even more dramatic.
