Princess ‘dos that Disney wouldn’t diss – 3 hairstyles for prom princesses

Princess Hairstyles at Sixth Sense Hairdressers in Sutton Coldfield

Well done, you’ve made it to prom season and now it’s time to throw a party to celebrate all your academic awesomeness. Planning how to style the party out is worth losing many hours on Pinterest over, but when it comes to hair – we have your back with our ultimate prom hairstyles guide.

Your prom is probably your first (justifiable) excuse to don a floor-length frock and feel like a Princess, don’t let it pass you by.

Crown it up!

 It’s your prom, which makes you a Princess. Fact. All that’s left to do is show the world with contemporary crowns that are befitting of royalty. Just how regal you go is entirely up to you; your options are bountiful with flower garlands, pearls, sparkles, and feathers.

Tip: Let your headwear be the talking point with long and loose natural hair. To lock in sheen, invest in a hair serum to tame flyaways and combat humidity. Hair that stays frizz-free all night…guaranteed.

Big curls for happy girls

No occasion is more befitting of big curled hair than a ball, so treat yourself to a power blow-dry. Or, if you are feeling adventurous, read our tips on how to get a curly blow-dry at home.  It’s easier than you think!

Tip: When empowering your curls to hold all night, make sure you arm them with an amazing cream that will spring curls back to life with one simple scrunch – for curls that behave well into the small hours.   

Classic Chignon  

When Cinderella married her Prince, there was only one go-to style that was befitting – the classic chignon. We love the chignon because it’s such a versatile little updo with no hard and fast rules to creating it. Technically defined as “a knot or coil of hair arranged on the back of the head”, it’s a broad term to describe rolls, top knots, and buns. It’s a fail-safe classic which proves that elegance is timeless.

Tip: Always refined, the chignon can be as tight or as undone as you want. For a more polished vibe, go for sleek and all up. For a more relaxed vibe, simply tease out loose sections from the front.

Have a wonderful prom night! And, if you need more advice, pop by to the Sixth Sense Salon (the number one in Sutton Coldfield) for a chat.
