For unmatched elegance the french twist is a staple to any formal occasion and a go-to short hair prom style. While it's traditionally applied more to longer lengths, it's also very easily adaptable to shorter hair. It's also deceptively simple to do.
- Part your hair and pin it to one side.
- Gather the unfastened side, twist it and pin it.
- Use as many bobby pins as you need until your hair is fastened at the back.
And that's it! Simple, sophisticated and beautiful.
Another simple yet surprisingly sleek look, the slicked back hairstyle is one of the more currently trendy short prom hairstyles. Start with damp hair and use a boar-bristle brush to brush your hair straight back and behind your ears. Next use a blow dryer with a nozzle attached to dry your hair to the shape of your head. Using your flat-iron, smooth out the ends as well as the top section of your hair. Finally apply some hair oil or hairspray to hold it all together.
