Dress. Check. Date. Double Check. But the question remains – How do you turn heads with your short haircut? Don’t worry, from the pixie to the striking wob, we have listed the top ten prom hairstyles to help you deal with your nightmare!
All short and trendy hairstyle seekers – read on!
1. Double Hair Mountains With Headband:
Lupita Nyongo’s hairstyle is all edgy, and we’re digging it. Her double hair mountain with bedazzled headband was a show stealer at the 86th Annual Academy Awards, and we can’t deal with how awesome it is.
To make a major statement on the big night, shave the sides and top section of your hair all the way around. Now, for the back section, use curl defining mousse and blow dryer to add volume to it.
2. Layered Bob:
Long, layered and seriously blonde, stunning Pixie Lott showed off this on-trend bob on the premier in 2011 – and we’re predicting that it will be back this season too. If you’re looking for a whimsical hairstyle, make like Pixie and apply lot of anti-frizz serum to tame layered flyaways. A total babe!
3. Curly Lob With Floral Crown:
Flower–child, Ana Pauls, scores major style statement while attending Wacolda Photocall at the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival. We love everything about this fresh and natural hairstyle – the curls, layered bob, and the flirty floral hair crown placed on top of her head. An adorable way to take any look from boring to boho-chic!
4. Side-Swept Bob With Boho Headband:
Want a really feminine and easy short style? Make like Paris Hilton and opt for a straight, side-swept bob and give it a trendy twist with an embellished headband. Perfect for a spring or summer prom, you just can’t beat a bit of chic headband in the hair for an instant prom vibe, can you? Stylish and flattering – we love.
5. Wob With Bow:
If you’re rocking a grown-out bob like Delta Goodrem, add a girly twist for prom. To recreate this all-kind-of-awesome wavy bob, just shape your hair out with your fingers or use a curling tong and apply volume boosting hair product for that floaty head of hair. For an irresistibly adorable look, accessorize with a sophisticated headband. Wow!
6. Angular Curly Bob:
When gorgeous Sophia Bush styled her hair into a two-toned bob, the world followed suit. To recreate the failsafe party look, the One Tree Hill actress has set her curls with some hairspray to keep them from unraveling. You can also feed your hair through a curling wand randomly rather than in one direction. Much shaggy, much better!
7. Long Pixie With Barrette:
To glam-up your pixie for the big night, opt for a lightweight styling spray. For the model’s oh-so-stylish pixie, blow dry your hair using a brush and swoop your bangs to one side. Once done, use your fingers to tousle and style your hair exactly the way you want it! Wear your hair with a gold barrette for a romantic look.
8. Side Parted Messy Bob:
Perfecto! Actress Kristen Stewart has long been the queen of the cool, bed-head bob. Texturized with a bit of super-blunt layers and side parted bangs, KStew’s hair is edgy yet fresh. To duplicate this prom hairstyle, we suggest you take a copy of this picture and take to your hairdresser.
9. Short Bob With Big Curls:
It’s been a while that model Coco has been showing us the right ways to style bob, and this short bob with big curls is a fun way to add elegance to your prom dress. Keep your tendrils in place with a good amount of mousse, and you’re good to go!
10. Side-Swept Pixie:
You don’t need long locks to go mega-glam on prom night! Elsa Pataky’s messy style lets your pretty face and scene-stealing dress take focus, plus it’s easy to recreate—just load on the hairspray and comb your hair to one side.
