Finding Prom Hairstyles

As crazy as this may sound, prom is going to be here before you know it! As one of the most memorable nights of the year, you deserve a hairstyle to match that perfect dress. Prom hairstyles used to be all about the coifed updo and makeup used to be just as standard. But now… It’s all about bringing out your style!

Choosing your hairstyle for prom can be so overwhelming with all the pins on Pinterest. That is why our hairstylists and makeup artists at Anushka Spa & Salon have compiled a list of questions to help you bring out your best style for prom this year!

Read on to find out what you should be asking yourself to achieve the perfect hairstyle for your style in 2019!

What Is Your Signature Hairstyle?

We all have a signature go-to hairstyle that suits us. Whether you are a pin straight hairstyle or perfectly curled locks, if you have a hairstyle that you love to rock, there is no need to make a drastic change. After all, your prom pictures should look like you.

If you are one of the many that would never be caught with a ponytail, why do an updo hairstyle for prom? Go with your signature hairstyle and ask your stylist to add a fancy touch to your look with hair accessories to make your beautiful dress!

Our hairstylists have a knack for glamming up any signature look. Bring pictures of your go-to look and our stylists will add a high-end twist to your hair.

Are all of your friends wearing flowered crowns? Or maybe actual crowns? Don’t follow the basic hairstyle trend, ask your hairstylist to add your personality into this trend. Try out a fabulous and chic half-up flowered braided crown up-do hairstyle.

Ask your stylists to add a few extra braids to give added dimension to your signature look. Bring pictures of you in your dress to make sure your stylist knows how your braids and hair should fall to accentuate your dress in all the right areas.

If you have one shoulder, sequence strap, ask your hairstylist to bring your hair away from that shoulder to make sure the details are visible.

A high-end hair salon should be able to give you the style trend of the year without giving your hair the same basic look like everyone else.

Before you leave the salon, ask your hairstylist which hairspray is right for your hair type and the best way to spray your hair throughout the night to help with fly-a-ways in the wind and heat.

Are You Interested In Casual, Glam or Both?

Some girls don’t feel like getting all dolled up, if that describes your look, try a more natural hairstyle by wearing your hair down. Your stylist can execute this look by adding a few big rolling curls or by adding a gloss to your locks to hold down your pin straight hair.
If you’re looking to glam up your look, why not go vintage? Try a vintage chic curl with a statement accessory. Curly hair can be dressed up or down depending on the size and design of your statement piece.
Not sure which statement piece is right for you? Ask your stylist to choose one that compliments your dress!
If you are looking for a happy medium between a casual and glam look, why not try a vintage half-up prom hairstyle with big curls and a statement piece? Waterfall braids give natural hair a glam look! Our stylists at Anushka Spa & Salon are here to make your dream look come true.
If you aren’t sure which look is best for you, ask your hairstylist to give you a few ideas based on your personality and dress combination.

Are You Big On Comfort?

If you are a dancing machine, you may want to consider a look for your extravaganza. Wearing your hair down or in an elaborate updo might not be the best idea for dancing. An up-do requires pins and hairspray that may be uncomfortable and a bit annoying as your moving on the dance floor.

If you are looking for a hairstyle that will allow you to comfortably dance the night away, try a pull through ponytail! This isn’t your average wear to gym class high pony. A pull-through pony hairstyle adds an elegant feature to any look while still providing comfort and will help keep your hair out of your face.

You’ll feel more confident if you aren’t worried about your hair coming undone or being poked with bobby pins all night.

Are You Super Edgy or Super Cute?

We can’t help but love braid bun hairstyles at the salon, they can look great no matter what look you’re going for.

If you are going for more of an edgy look, go for a messy bun. A messy bun doesn’t have to look thrown together, a professional stylist like the stylists at our salon will create a messy bun that looks too perfect to be too casual. By placing a messy bun at the nape of your neck, we can pull out pieces to frame your face and loosen your look for a little hair romance.

For a sweeter look, your go-to hairstyle should be a chic ballerina bun. The best part of a ballerina bun is that it can be placed anywhere to accentuate your features. Some facial shapes look more enhanced with a high bun, whereas others look best lower.

Ask your hairstylist for the best positioning for your face. You can glam up your ballerina bun with an accessory to match your dress as well.

Are You Going Modern Or Retro?

Most up-dos can do from modern to retro with a few simple tweaks. Pick your era and let our stylists bring your hairstyle back through the years. One of the hottest styles this year is taking us back 50 years to the ‘60s with a bouffant teased up-do. Ask about adding a headband to make your dress.

To add a little modern touch to this retro look, ask your hairstylist to bring a few loose tendrils down to the front and sides. Add a sparkly clip or flowers instead of a headband to finish your hairstyle.
