Step-by-Step Guide: Creating Fashionable Prom Hairstyles for a Night to Remember
Prom night is a magical occasion where every detail counts, especially when it comes to your hair. Finding the perfect prom hairstyle can be a daunting task, but fear not! We've curated a list of trending hairstyles and how to achieve them using some of our favorite Pai-Shau styling products that will have you feeling like the star of the night.
Effortlessly Chic with RoyalTEA by Pai-Shau
Nothing says “Spring Dreamy” like loose waves with effortless body and bounce. To achieve this chic look, we recommend using the incredible RoyalTEA by Pai-Shau. This lightweight spray extends blowouts and revitalizes hair between washes while adding volume and shine.
Step 1: Start with clean, dry hair - or at the most, day 2 hair.
Step 2: Part your hair down the middle or create a deep side part for added drama.
Step 3: Shake the RoyalTEA spray well and spray evenly at the roots or slightly down mids for more volume.
Step 4: Using a curling wand or curling iron, take small sections of your hair and wrap them around the barrel, holding for a few seconds before releasing. Continue curling all sections of your hair, alternating the direction of the curls for a natural look - or keeping with the same direction for a more elevated look.
Step 5: Once all the curls are in place, gently run your fingers through them to loosen and separate them for those beautiful, loose waves.
Step 6: Finish with a medium-hold hairspray to ensure your waves stay intact throughout the night. We recommend Sublime Hold Hairspray for optimum results!
Supreme Control with Style Soufflé
A sleek ponytail exudes sophistication and style. To achieve this polished look, we recommend using Style Soufflé, a product designed to provide nourishing and reparative extracts to the hair, along with supreme control and manageability.
Step 1: Start with 10% damp or dry hair.
Step 2: Apply a small amount of Style Soufflé to your palms and distribute it evenly through your hair, focusing on the roots to tame frizz and add style memory.
Step 3: Comb your hair back and gather it into a high or low ponytail, depending on your preference.Secure the ponytail with a hair tie, making sure it is tight enough to hold but not too tight to cause discomfort.
Step 4: Take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the hair tie, securing it with a bobby pin for a polished finish.
Step 5: Use a flat iron to straighten any flyaways or baby hairs around your hairline. For an extra touch of sophistication, you can also add a ribbon or jeweled accessory around the base of the ponytail.
Step 6: Want to amp up the shine? Complete the look with a pump or two of Biphasic Infusion applied to mids & ends of your pony.
Romantic Braided Chignon
Immaculate Hold and Shine with Imperial Hold Hairspray
When it comes to prom night, a romantic updo can elevate your look to a whole new level of elegance and charm. With its impeccable hold and shine, Imperial Hold Hairspray ensures your structured look stays flawless throughout the night. Get ready to turn heads and captivate the room with this ethereal hairstyle.
Step 1: Start by parting your hair to the desired side or in the middle, depending on your preference. Take a small section of hair near the part and create a three-strand braid. Secure it with a clear elastic band. This will be your accent braid.
Step 2: On the opposite side of the part, take a larger section of hair and begin a Dutch braid. Cross the outer strands under the center strand instead of over. Continue braiding down the side of your head, incorporating new sections of hair as you go. Secure the braid with an elastic band at the nape of your neck.
Step 3: Repeat Step 2 on the other side of your head, creating another Dutch braid. Secure it with an elastic band at the nape of your neck.Gather all the remaining hair, including the accent braid, into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Secure it with a hair tie.
Step 4: Twist the ponytail around itself, creating a chignon or low bun. Tuck the ends of the hair underneath the bun and secure it with bobby pins, ensuring it feels secure and neat.
Step 5: Take the accent braid and wrap it around the base of the chignon, concealing the elastic band. Secure it with bobby pins to hold it in place. Gently tug and loosen a few strands around your face and the nape of your neck for a softer and romantic look.
Step 6: Finish the look and hold it in place with Imperial Hold Hairspray so you can dance the night away!
Prom night is your time to shine, and with these low maintenance, chic hairstyles, you'll be sure to make a memorable entrance. Whether you opt for loose waves, a sleek ponytail, or a romantic updo, remember to choose a style that makes you feel confident and comfortable. And remember: HAVE FUN!
