Get the most elegant Short Prom Hairstyles for 2012
One of the most common misconceptions people have is that short hair cannot be styled into a formal look for prom. This is untrue. Although it is true that up-dos’ would not be possible in case of short hair but they are plenty of other short prom hairstyles that can look heavenly and formal at the same time. Long flowing hair is no longer the prime requirement for prom hairstyles and since every girl has the right to look perfect on prom night, settling down for something compatible is the name of the game.
The sleek look for prom
One would generally associate short prom hairstyles with messy and textured haircuts but sometimes it is good to go for the sleek look too. Such looks can draw attention to your facial features and highlight them because the hair is out of the way.
You can use mousse or smoothing cream to make sure that the hair lies flat down on your head. For parts that require extra smoothing, use a flat iron. Make sure that there is no stray hair because messy isn’t what you are aiming for in this case.
The textured and tousled look for prom night
Short prom hairstyles can be adventurous too and opting for textured or tousled look gives a more casual and relaxed look for a formal occasion like prom. In order to achieve this look, simply use a natural brush and blow-dryer to style your damp hair accordingly. Once dry, rub some pomade on your hands and run them through your hair, concentrating on the ends and make sure that the hairstyle does not come across as ‘too neat’.
The curled look for prom
How can there be something mentioned about short prom hairstyles and nothing about curls? Needless to mention, curls and prom looks go hand-in-hand. Curled hairstyles look great on everybody. They exude elegance and look feminine at the same time.
If you have a medium hair length, like a bob cut then curling irons or flat irons should be employed for the purpose of endowing beautiful and graceful curls. If you don’t want to have defined curls then you can run your fingers through them after you are done curling in order to make them not as pronounced as they look after you have take them off the hair tool.
OK, here are some great prom hair style for you to choose from, hope these prom hair styles pictures can help you get new ideas.
