We know you will want to look your best for prom and that means a gorgeous dress, gorgeous accessories and gorgeous hair!! We’ve picked a great selection of prom hairstyles that are easily achievable with Dirty Looks hair extensions.
The Chignon is always a popular choice for formal or glamorous events; it looks great and is an easy updo! A full head set in 16-18” or 20-22” would be perfect for this style, giving you thickness and volume!!
Fit your Dirty Looks hair extensions and gather your extensions and your own hair together in a low, loose ponytail at the nape of your neck. Secure this with an elastic.
Split your ponytail into two parts and twist both parts in a tight spiral. Start at the base of the ponytail and gently curl the twisted ponytail into a bun.
Secure your Chignon with hairpins to hold the style!
For something a little different, why not wear your Chignon to the side or leave some hair loose around your face and add a few natural waves for a softer look! A glitzy hair accessory would really set this style off!!
Old Hollywood Curls
This vintage hair style will really wow your friends! It’s sophisticated, stylish and simple to do - it will look fab with any prom dress!!
First, fit your extensions (a Dirty Looks full head set in 16-18” or 20-22” would be best here), but leave out the top few wefts until later.
Create a low side parting and set your hair and your extensions in rollers (Velcro or hot rollers should work best ... don’t forget to curl the wefts you haven’t fitted yet as you will need them later).
Fit the rest of your extensions and then brush all the hair back away from your face. Use a soft brush to brush out the curls a little. Tuck the smaller side of the parting behind your ear slightly so it sits flatter to the head and you’re ready to go!
Styling your hair half-up and half-down always works really well for prom and the style is really adaptable and can be pulled off both curly and straight.
Once you have fitted all of your hair extensions, apply a good quality heat protection treatment and use jumbo curling irons to create gorgeous curls. Once you’ve finished, gently brush the curls through to loosen them slightly. Take a small section of hair from each side and bring them to the back of your head, securing them with a glamorous clip.
Alternatively, you could wear the style straight and glam up with a tiara or fascinator!!
You could always add an additional Quad Weft to the crown of your head and backcomb your own hair for uber volume!!
Uber length with waves/curls
If you prefer to wear your hair long and luxurious then a full head set in 24-26” is perfect for giving uber length! This looks great worn in loose curls or waves (think Miley Cyrus!) and would be gorgeous for prom!
For large waves or curls, use a 38mm jumbo curling tong or for smaller curls or waves try a 24mm curling tong (but be sure to use a good quality heat protection treatment first). You can brush the curls through gently after styling for a softer look!
All of the above styles will look simply gorgeous for your prom; you’re bound to turn heads and you certainly won’t be left in the corner for the last dance!
