Curly Prom Hairstyles

Want some flattering prom curls or a touch of waves on your hair? Our expert hair stylists can create beautiful curls for you. From 1960s retro curls to big, bouncy ringlets, we can create the perfect curly prom hairstyle for you.

Curls look beautiful, but when not curled properly, they can lose their waves, especially when the texture of your hair is fine and smooth. One of the best ways to make your curls stay longer is to have it on a day old hair.

To ensure that your hair is evenly curled, divide it into sections and apply some setting lotion. You can then curl with a curling iron, a wand or tong and squirt some hairspray to finish off.

Plaited Prom & Party Hair Ideas

Braided prom hairstyles are romantic and look great on any hair length. Opt for half braids or a braided upstyle. 

To keep your braids looking good as new, add some hair product to dampen your hair such as a dry shampoo or a styling lotion.

When braiding, make sure you have a firm hold on each braid to ensure you have a long-lasting braid.

Keep the first part of each braid fixed by using some bobby pins, which can then be covered with some pretty hair accessories.

Best Prom Upstyles

Updos are a great choice if you are after an elegant prom hairstyle. Just come along with a picture of your prom dress and our professional hair stylists in our Kidlington hair salon will create the best prom hairstyle for you.

Keep your Upstyle together by making use of bobby pins or hair clips and fix the pins in a criss-cross manner. Short bobby pins will work perfectly fine, as they would sit well under the upstyle. However, you can make use of some hair accessories that match the colour of your hairstyle to cover the bobby pins if they become obvious. To bring fly-away hair strands back to the fold, spray your hairbrush and run it gently through your hair.
