Beautiful Prom Hairstyles

With prom season just around the corner, we’ve taken a look at some of our favourite A-listers and their hottest looks on the red carpet, for some serious prom hair inspiration.

Whether you want to go for a classic prom hairstyle or something a little trendier, we have something for everyone – there’s a ‘do’ to match your prom look!

Boho braid

Braids are bigger than ever and the milkmaid braid is a popular celeb choice for a simple but stylish updo on the red carpet. This is the go-to hairstyle for boho chicks like Alexa Chung, Jessica Alba and Sienna Miller – when wearing a beautiful dress this braid style gives your look a real edge.

Use the Great Lengths Soft Finnish Spray to complete your look. This spray will hold your styling whilst imparting hair with a long lasting shine. We recommended gently teasing the braid, to give it a modern and messy finish.


Classic waves

Classic curls and waves are a perfect look for prom. Celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon and Diana Agron pull off this style beautifully.

If you have shorter hair and want to achieve this look, then look no further than GL Apps; these temporary extensions are perfect for quickly enhancing the length and volume of your hair helping you create this glamorous do.


Beautiful bun

Although the topknot trend is known to be a quick and casual hair choice, it can also be be ultra glam. The key to a perfect bun is framing the face. If you want to ensure that the finished look isn’t too harsh, allow wisps of your hair to fall free from your topknot for a softer, feminine style like Gwen Stefani.
