The waterfall braid is a great prom hairdo for those with long wavy hair or long sleek hair. For a waterfall braid, you need to braid the upper section of your hair, leaving a few strands out of the braid for a waterfall effect.

 Sometimes the simplest of hairstyles can look really elegant. A polished ponytail is a great prom hairdo if you are wearing a long well fitted gown. Avoid using a scrunchy to tie up your hair, instead, use a thin rubber band to hold the ponytail together and then wind a few strands of your hair around the rubber band to keep it from being seen.

Prom Hairdos for Short Hair

 Experimenting with prom hairdos for short hair depends on how short your hair is.

1. Curled Tips
