Prom Hairstyles


By Viri Perez, McKenna Lopez, Kaylee Hanzich

Prom is an event that most of us dreamt of as little girls and boys. Arriving with your breathtaking date,  everyone’s eyes are focused on you because you are simply radiating confidence and pure beauty all while dressed in the most gorgeous dress. However, the dress isn’t the only thing you need to complete the perfect look. You absolutely cannot forget accessories, makeup, shoes and hair. Although all of those things are very important.

Prom dresses attract all the attention, but you need a rockin’ hairstyle to compliment your dress. We don’t all have the money to go to a salon and get our hair done professionally. Who does after spending all that money on the perfect dress and shoes? If you have a friend who can braid, try asking them for some help.

Make it known that you are available to help with hair for prom if you are looking to make some money and can do some cute braids and hairstyles.

1.Begin with a top dutch braid and braid all the way back to the middle back of your head.

2.Do this one both sides of the head and hold them with some sort of elastic.

3.Underneath the top braid, do the same thing to both sides again.

4.Now connect all four and try braiding them together. If not, just tie it back with an elastic and ta-da!
