Prom Hairdos for Long Hair
Long hair can be an advantage because it gives you more room to experiment with different prom hairdos.
1. Plaited Bun
A plaited bun is very easy to accomplish. All you need to do is gather every strand of your hair into a single plait. Roll the plait around itself and you will have yourself a plaited bun.
This is one of our favorite plaited bun style tutorial
2. Waterfall Braid
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.

3. Half Up – Half Down
Guys may not really tell you this, but they find a woman’s crowning glory very appealing. Mystify your date with a half up, half down hairdo for prom. Clip up the upper section of your hair, leaving most of it trailing behind.

4. Side Braid
If you have long wavy and thick hair, tying them into a single side braid will keep them tamed, simple and elegant for the evening.
Here is another video showing one of our favorite side braid hairstyles
5. A Ponytail
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
If you have short sleek hair, you can curl the tips of your hair for a vibrant hairdo for prom.
2. Waterfall Braids
Waterfall braids can work for short hair as well. Below we have posted another video of a style that is quite popular
3. The Bob
If you already have a bob, that’s great and if you don’t, you can always fake one by straightening your hair inwards with a sleek side fringe.
4. The Messy Bun
If you have sleek short hair that reaches your shoulders, you can curl the tips of your hair and tie them into a messy bun, leaving a sleek side fringe.
