How to Create a Simple Prom Updo
Hi everybody. Today, I will be demonstrating how simple and easy it is for you to create this prom updo that you can do at home. It’s about as simple as it gets, and it looks cute and lasts for the entire night. You don’t have to worry about it falling down, because if you use enough bobby pins, your style should hold in place. And even if you do get some fall down – that’s okay, because it will just add to the style. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Curl your hair with your favorite flat iron. You will only want to do this from the middle of the hair downwards, and you can create tighter curls, or waves – whatever you like better. I chose to do waves mixed with curls.
Step 2: Gather the hair on the crown of the head as if you were going to do a half-up, half-down style, twisting into a sort of French twist from front to back. Secure with bobby pins to hold in place.
Step 3: Gather all of your hair onto the back of your head as if you were going to do a ponytail. Twist the hair upwards as if you were creating a French twist, and then once the hair is piled on top of your head, sort of twist the hair into a bun like structure – but do this loosely. You want curls to hang out and droop a bit.
Step 4: Secure the hair to the head with bobby pins, allowing curls to drape freely where they may. Give your hair a quick once over with hair spray. If there are any areas that are bumpy or that you would like to fix, simply secure them with bobby pins to hide.
Step 5: Your style is officially finished! Simple, easy, and gorgeous, this is a look you can feel confident about achieving – and you will only need bobby pins and hair spray, along with your flat iron, to get the look. It only requires about 5 minutes time total, saving you precious time for other things – like makeup application.
I hope this tutorial was entertaining and gets you in the spirit of creating your own personal style for prom. I look forward to my next guest blogging opportunity with Lionesse! Thanks for reading.
