Our beloved Fashion Girl is armed and ready to answer any Prom question you may have! Here's a question from Dee in California:
What kinds of up-dos are in for Prom for really curly hair?
This year, up-dos are getting undone (think messy chignons and piece-y side-swept ponytails) and gorgeous curls are the perfect texture for the season's deeply fabulous styles.
To achieve the look, simply pull your hair into a relaxed ponytail (at the back, crown or side of your head) then start randomly pinning curls to secure them in place. You can pin every last curl to create a chignon, or leave a few curls out, like Vanessa Hudgens. And of course you can spice up the look by pinning flowers, feathers or even netting for a dash of decorative color; or add a rhinestone-covered headband for sparkle!
Take a cue from two of our favorite designers for a dramatic, red carpet-worthy Prom up-do that could rival Hollywood's brightest starlets!
For his Spring 2008 show, Yves Saint Laurent piled curls on top of the models' heads and secured with pins, leaving rockabilly-style bangs to hang over their eyes. This is so simple to do and all you need is hair pins to keep your hair in place. For added flair, pin flowers, feathers, or even netting into your hair for decorative color.
It was all about romance at Philip Lim's Spring 2008 show. Curly-haired models had their tendrils pulled back into a loose ponytail and tucked under at the nape of the neck, with longer layers left out in front.
