If you are looking for the perfect prom hairstyle then you will want to start by looking at what is trendy this prom season. For the 2007 prom season think retro. Look back at styles from the 20s, 60s, 70s and 80s for inspiration. Consider the page boy, the shag or a pixie cut. Create formal looks from these styles by adding sparkly hair accessories like beaded headdresses, fancy headbands, beaded or bejeweled barrettes, or flowers.
If you have medium length hair then you can select from longer versions of popular short haircuts, or you can use curls and waves to create a trendy look. With medium length hair you can select from hairstyles that are down and loose, or from styles that are up-does. Create formal looks for medium length haircuts by adding great hair accessories. Or if you are looking for an edgier look try adding spray color and gel.
While 2007 hairstyle trends are focused on short hairstyles, long is still in. If you have long hair then your prom hairstyle should try to include long spiral curls or soft waves. Long hair can be worn up, however, the trend for long hair is to wear it down and soft. Create a more formal look by adding flowers and bejeweled hair clips.
If you will be going to a hair salon to get your hair styled for the prom make sure that you arrive at your appointment with several ideas. While it is okay to have a main hairstyle in mind when you arrive at your hairstyling appointment, it is a good idea to have one or two backups just in case the first style doesn’t work out. A good way to avoid hairstyle disasters at the eleventh hour, take advantage of free hairstyle consultations offered by most professional hairstylists.
