An integral part of finding the right prom dress is thinking about the hairstyles you can wear to accentuate your best assets. A long prom dress will look amazing whether you have long or short hair, but it’s always good to think ahead, so you are not disappointed close to prom!
Let’s look at some Insta-worthy styles for prom 2019!
The best thing about updos these days is they don’t have to be stuffy and formal. Years ago, and updo usually meant hair was lacquered and pulled into a perfect style that would not move an inch all night, but it’s no longer like that.
An updo can mean a messy, low braid, a loose, carefree bun – think pre-Duchess Megan Markle – or loose curls thrown together in a hot mess! There aren’t really any rules or limitations on what your hair has to look like when it’s up – it’s what you’re comfortable with.
If you have short hair and want an updo, don’t despair! You can use clip-in hair extensions if you are looking for a fuller look, but it’s really not difficult to make a low, messy side bun out of shoulder-length hair resulting in the illusion of long hair being pulled up!
The advantages of having your hair in an updo when wearing a long prom dress are that it can make you look taller, draw attention to statement earrings, show off toned arms and shoulders, and elongate your neck. It’s a no-fuss way of looking confident, and can also look effortlessly elegant – particularly with a long prom dress.
If you are looking for a simple, fuss-free look for prom, you can’t go past leaving your hair down. When it comes to prom dresses 2019, it will be able to get away with almost any hairstyle you choose, but big, loose curls will look amazing with a long prom dress.
Leaving long hair loose and natural (albeit blow-dried to look effortless!) gives you a look of complete confidence and femininity. Another advantage is being able to get away with girly looks in a way that doesn’t look too formal. For example, if you choose a tulle ball-gown style for your prom dress, wearing your hair up might make you look a little bit too serious whereas wearing your hair out in big curls can seem more relaxed.
Long hair is hard work to maintain, so if you’ve got beautiful, thick, long locks why not flaunt them!
