Although the classic chignon remains a timeless hairstyle favorite when attending posh social events like Prom or a special gala, it’s always fun to kick the updo a few notches and show off your gleaming locks in modern and creative ways. From loose and romantic side buns, bohemian styled french twists, Elzabethan braids, like Nicole Richie’s (shown top row, second from left), to a refreshing new take on the french twist, the options are seemingly endless. And if your dream prom look entails either a strapless dress, one shoulder dress, a sexy high to low dress, or perhaps something with an enticing sweetheart neckline, a unique updo will not only showcase your beautiful shoulders and décolletage but also highlight your overall prom style and make you the center of that sparkling dancefloor!
And to capture that sleek look with major hold, we recommend Bumble & Bumble Classic Hairspray to keep your do strictly in place during major party hours. To silkify and rid those pesky fly aways, TIGI Bed Head After the Party Smoothing Cream works its fabulous wonders. Another must-have straightening product with a healthy dose of sweet-smelling hibiscus is Frederic Fekkai’s Advanced Silky Straight IRONLESS shampoo…and the plus to buying this baby – it contains essential proteins to heighten your hair’s vitality. If you’re going for a loose and wavy updo with a summery beach effect, Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray will not disappoint (we have bottles stashed in our own offices in case we need a boost of beach wave). And with spring in full gear, the warmer climate may put a little damper on our hair and create those unwanted frizz and damaged strands. To fight nature’s elements, we suggest scooping up a heavenly bottle of Moroccan Oil. It’s not only smooths and provides the necessary nutrients for your hair, but also aids in hair regeneration too!
