Fuss-free Prom ‘Dos

A gorgeous prom dress and a pair of strappy sandals deserve something a little more special than our everyday ‘do. But then again, we’re not the fussy hairspraying type and we hate to look like we’re trying too hard. So we’ve found a few options that are are fantastically pretty, but also casual enough to make us feel effortlessly chic.

First there’s the Evening Pony. A little straightening (for curly hair) or curling (for straight hair), back-combing at the crown, a low elastic at the nape and we’re good to go with a sexy, sassy ‘do.

Next option is the accidentally fabulous updo. Tousled hair is loosely held with several elastics secured close together in the back, with sections pinned up randomly (leaving some ends loose for an unfinished look). A curling iron to smooth and gently twist a few loose front sections completes the "I-just-ran-out-the-door-and-happen-to-look-this-great look.
