The prom is a great highlight for any teenage girl. This is an exciting
time to dress up and stay out with friends, and is also a great
excuse to go shopping for dresses, shoes, and get your hair and
nails done. Being the important event that it is, prom is definitely
a big deal especially when it comes to what dress you are going
to wear and how your hair is going to look.
Most teenage girls like to wear their hair long, and having long hair provides the versatility that one may need to come up with a unique hair style that will make you stand out from the crowd. Those with short hair, however, need not be discouraged. Short hair can also work great for prom hair styles, especially the prom updo.
If your hair is at least the length of a bob, then you can pull it up into an updo. Even individuals with at least three inches of hair can wear their hair up, all that is needed is a bit of imagination and the right tools to make the updo work.
Getting creative is the best way to pull short hair up into a great updo for prom. A great way to start is to use multiple mini-ponytails as the base instead of pulling back all the hair in one big ponytail. This way, you can pull all the hair back without having a lot of strands falling out. You can simply cover up the sections by styling the hair properly.
Another great way to style short hair into an updo is to use a hairpiece or hair extensions. These will not only add a bit more length to the hair, it will add more volume as well. You can also opt to use styling products such as hair gel or paste to hold your short hair back and in place.
Talk to your stylist, he or she may have many more tricks up his sleeves when it comes to shorter hair. Also take the time to do test runs on the hairstyle itself. See if it really works for you and for your dress.
And lastly, remember that the updo can and will work for anyone. It is
a classic and very versatile hairstyle that can work for any hair
type and any length of hair. You wont need to grow your hair long
to get that glamorous hair style you want for prom.
