Our Favorite Easy Prom Hairstyles

At Avalon School of Cosmetology, we love prom season. It’s so much fun to see highschoolers so happy in their formal wear, getting ready for their dates, and dancing the night away! But we particularly love it because of the formal hairstyles that we can help students create for their big night!

No matter what your dream hairstyle, it should match your personality and wants! Here are some hairstyles that our students have created, check them out and get some inspiration on the perfect hairstyle for your formal night!

Beach Wave Curls

If you love to keep your hair down and simple, then stick with the perfect beach wave curl. It’s a great hairstyle to go with any low neckline or sleeveless dress. If you need to keep it out of your face while dancing, it will be very easy to pull back with the perfect trendy barrette. This jaw-dropping look was created by Avalon student, @hairbytanzie.


Big Bun

@_sarahs_beauty_bar_ created this amazing hairstyle that we couldn’t resist sharing! Buns have an elegance and sophistication that we absolutely love. There are so many different ways to do a bun, but we especially love them with a lot of volume! This bun is perfect because it incorporates beautiful braids and it’s not too tight and not too loose. Everyone is sure to be jealous if you do your hair like this.


Cascading Braids

We love braids! This braid is such a great way to make a simple hairstyle look elegant. If you know that you’re already going to be pretty busy getting ready before prom, then this hairstyle is the perfect one! It’s simple and very trendy. Use some hair glitter to help glitz it up a bit if you want! Thanks, @clipsbyliv for sharing the perfect prom hair inspiration.


Loose and Low Braid

This hairstyle might be the definition of the perfect hair for prom. We’re in love with how beautiful the braids and curls all fit together. This is a great hairstyle for people with thin or thick hair! It will create volume and go well with dresses that have a high neckline. @cherryontophair did an amazing job of showing off this perfect hairstyle.


Sweet and Simple

If you like a hairstyle that is low maintenance but can be turned into something stunning, then this could be the one for you. We love this hairstyle created by @maddymiller.hair because you can do so much with it! You can leave it like it is in the picture, you can add some hair glitter or even braid in some baby’s breath flowers.


Blowout Babe

If you’re still wondering what to do for your hair at this point, then one of the best options is to stick with a simple blowout! Blowouts are just a blow-dry with a roller brush. They give your hair volume and make it unbelievably soft and shiny. You can request to get a slight curl to make it a little more formal just like @hair_bychelseadavis did here!
