Long Prom Hair Style Trends For 2010-2011 Review And Tips


Prom hairstyles follow high fashion just as the Prom Gowns do.

With the current hair fashions trending towards natural textures such as lush waves, loose ringlet curls and even soft straight shiny strands, Prom hairstyles will follow.

The days of the required Prom updo hairstyle are gone, at least for now.  Of course if you wish to wear your hair up, follow your Prom hair dreams.  You should always wear your hair the way you love it best.

The modern version of updos range from half-up/half-down to a range of side chignons and buns to finished ponytail updo styles.

If you select a short and sassy strapless gown like the Prom Gown shown to the side you will want to wear your hair to match the essence of the gown.

Consider wearing your long hair with lots of volume and soft barely-there waves throughout the perimeter like the model shown.

For a more dramatic effect, direct all of the hair over to one side to drape seductively over one shoulder.  This is a perfect hairstyle for someone with long hair and nature waves or straight hair which holds a curl.

How To Style.?

It's a perfect long hair Prom style to match the gown.  It should also be easy to create a home or with the help of a friend.

Simply shampoo with your regular products and systems, blow dry to build in volume and shine and then use a large barrel curling iron to create some soft waves throughout the edges. Finish with an application of shine serum and/or hairspray and you're finished with a soft, sexy, flowing hairstyle for your prom.

Long Hair Prom Gown Considerations

When it comes to wearing your long hair coiffed for prom consider the following factors:

1. The style of your prom gown.
2. Maintainability of your hairstyle for a long Prom night.
3. Whether your hairstyle will be created at home, by a friend or a professional hairdresser.
4.  Hair Accessory considerations.  Do you wish to wear a special hair accessory such as a tiara comb or flowers in your hair?  While you can wear most hair accessories with up or down hairstyle, keep in mind that some accessories work better in certain hairstyles.
5.  Historical hair challenges.  If your hair tends to hold texture easily, you may be fine with a long luscious Prom hairdo.  On the flip side, if your hair doesn't hold a curl, you may be more comfortable with a half up/half down or a chignon or twist.
6.  Special Prom themes.  If your Prom has a unique theme you may wish to coif your hair to match and this may impact your ultimate long hair style selection.
Contrary to some, long wavy and naturally curly hair can easily be coiffed into an array of gorgeous updos.  Don't be discouraged if you read otherwise.  Unfortunately there is a lot of hair misinformation on the Internet. 
When in doubt, continue to do your own research and find the hairstyles you love that will work great with your long hair.

A great professional hairdresser with experience in styling long hair can create an amazing array of gorgeous hairstyle for long hair.

A key point to remember is to practice your Prom hairstyle with enough time to tweak it to your ultimate dream hairstyle.

Special Long Hair Site Dedication

This article is dedicated to Frank Ploenissen and The Long Hair Site which has been a guiding light to long haired ladies and their fans for many years. 
The Long Hair Site closed in December 2006 but we promise to continue to carry the long hair torch that Frank lit way back in 1996. 


If you talk to ten different long hair care experts you'll receive ten different opinions about the very best long hair growing, care and maintenance tips.

The very best tip for long hair is to develop your own best tips.
The reason for this approach is because every head of hair on every single man, woman and child is unique just as their fingerprints are unlike any other.
My own hair has been long, by all standards, for a good percentage of my life.  In the late 1980s I became serious about the care and feeding of my hair and have maintained a very healthy length of 5-6" below my waist since 1997.
Although I have my own personal long hair tips that work for me, I have included the most popular tips available which I have discovered after years of research and talking to other long hair professionals and fans.
Try the tips on for size and then select the tips that you find work best for your hair, budget, lifestyle and commitment levels.  Yes, it takes a certain level of commitment to have long lush locks.
Knowledge is ultimately power.  What you may think is good for your hair may be inadvertently damaging it. 
By properly caring for your hair and following proven long hair techniques you too can have long, beautiful and healthy strands.
