Natalia Maxwell, Professional Hair Artist
So prom nights are big, and what with schools shutting for the summer and the proms beginning I thought I would lightly touch on this.
Volume is still a massive thing and its going to be around for a while, so go back to the 50’s and get those beehives high. Kathryn Jenkins and Drew Barrymore set fine examples of this seasons 1950’s trend.
Leona Lewis looks fab with this classy traditional bun knot and it’s so simple to achieve. Check out my step by step to get the look.
Hair accessories also are a big must have. It’s a great way of changing your hair from that in the day look to night time glamour in no mare than 60seconds.
Diana Vickers is now on the scene and this picture really resembles what summers all about. She has that beautiful beach look with the tussled curls and to glam the look up she has gone for a head band accessory… Im loving her style at the mo.
GET THE PROM LOOK
This can be glammed up or toned down depending on the occasion.
Apply some mousse to washed and towel dried hair and dry hair straight.
In large sections straighten the hair just to give it a smoother edge.
Neatly brush all your hair into a pony tail quite high up on your head.
Back brush all the pony tail with a soft bristled brush or a Denman soft bristle brush which you can get from boots.
Grip the hair up in small sections loosely around the secured hair bobble you placed in to hold the ponytail. A bit like you would when trying to create a bun shape.
Once the bun is shaped how you want it, use a good firm hold hair spray like Elnett strong hold. Spray the hair and the bun.
For the beach, wrap a nice head scarf around the bun to give more interest to the look.
For glamour, go all out and apply a nice hair accessory whether it be a head band or clip get that bun looking like its ready to hit the town or prom!!
