Short haircuts are very popular again, not only among rebel girls who like to worry less about hairstyling, but also among stylish women and celebrities, who’ve rediscovered the femininity a short hairstyle can confer. In what follows we are going to discuss a bit about prom hairstyles for short hair, because there are certainly many of you who are wondering how to style their short hair for this special event. If you have a short haircut, you’ve probably already seen the pixie cuts and short bobs of celebrities like Emma Watson, Carey Mulligan, Anne Hathaway or Michelle Williams. It is almost surprising how feminine and sensual they look with their short bangs and bare necks.
If you’re looking for prom hairstyles for short hair, your options are a bit limited, but this also depends on how short your hair actually is. If it’s boyishly short, then you can add to it a bit of volume, some curls if it is possible, and some decorative hairpins. You can also go for a wilder look and, with the help of some mousse or styling gel, pull strands of hair in different directions until you achieve something that looks savage, yet weirdly fascinating.
Girls with shoulder-length hair and shorter can try any of the tips mentioned above, but there are also other options, such as some face-framing braids, bigger curls, or even a faux updo. The faux updo is one of the most popular prom hairstyles for short hair, because it can create the impression that your hair is longer and has more volume. You can even complete that with a faux hawk, which will give you an edgy and modern look. Moreover, you can make your faux hawk as extreme as you like, from a smaller, curled one, to a big, voluminous hawk that crowns your head.
On a different note, prom hairstyles for short hair allow you to wear bulkier accessories, and even more complex and ornate dresses in some situations. You still need to be careful not to overdress, but you’re pretty safe in this matter. Returning to our very short hairstyles, you can also prepare them for the prom with some styling wax, just combing it gently through the hair, in order to achieve some separation and texture. You can complete it with a set of thin headbands or a wider, flower-ornate headband. Fortunately, short hairstyles can be easily achieved at home, so all you need to do is practice a bit beforehand and see what is best for you.
