Prom Hair on a Budget

The side braid, shown here on Jessica Alba, is a popular updo

Prom night is one of the biggest nights of the year for high school students. After picking the dress, hair, makeup, and accessories are vital to complete the look. Here are some tips to ensure your hair is perfect for prom night:

  • If you have wavy hair, your options for prom night are endless. A side bun looks really elegant with some wavy pieces hanging down your shoulder. This look also gives you the chance to spice it up with a flower or adorn the opposite side with rhinestones.
  • Sidebraids have become a fun and different style for prom, allowing you to let the rest of your hair hang in curls, or pin up in a bun or ponytail. This hairstyle can look sleek or messy depending on what you are going for.
  • Updos allow you to bring out your best features and are essential in completing a formal look for prom night. Pair an updo with a strapless dress or with a dress that has a unique neckline that you would like to stand out. Bring something special to your style by adding a flower, decorative hair pin, or broach. This hairstyle is versatile for those with long hair or short. If your hair doesn’t hold curls well, pinning it up in an updo can be a good alternative to letting your curls fall flat throughout the night.
  • Hair extensions are a great idea for girls with shorter hair who want to achieve a longer look for prom night. First decide on how long you want to wear them. Hair extensions can run from $100-$1,000, so if you are just doing them for prom night, the clip-in hair extensions may work well for you.

With all the money you have to spend on your prom night, cut your costs by trying a Florida beauty school in your area for a less expensive alternative to high-end hair salon. Empire Beauty School in West Palm Beach and Lauderhill, Florida offer money-saving alternatives on hair styles, spa manicures, pedicures, and makeup.
