16 Cute Twisted Hair Ideas For Prom

It’s that time of the year again. That’s right, people, prom season is upon us. You’re probably busy dress hunting and wondering what sort of crazy promposals are going to go down at your school. You’re also probably starting to think about your hair and makeup.

Whether you want to do your hair yourself, get a friend to do it, or you want to go to a salon, I’d like to suggest that you try a twisted hairstyle. Twists are gorgeous, there are sooooooo many options to choose from, they work with all hair types, and they’re even easier to do than braids. What’s not to love?

See for yourself just how pretty twisted hairstyles can be. Have a look at 16 cute twisted hair ideas for prom.

The one piece snakes around the head to form a stunning updo.


5. Twisted Updo With Faux Flowers

This is like the twist version of a milkmaid braid. It’s gorgeous with or without the flowers.


6. Soft Updo With Hair Accessory

This is beautiful.


7. Twisted Bun With A Barrette

Notice how the twists hold the bun together?


8. Simple Twist with Headband

Romantic, vintage inspired upstyle I created for Saturday’s beautiful bride, Jessica ? The style she chose for her trial was completely different, way more modern, and Jess was back and forth about it all morning. So we made a game day decision to just follow her instincts, allow that wedding day magic to take over, and let it come together the way it was meant to – and, I mean, I’m slightly biased, but isn’t this style just perfect with her dress?? (last photo) The trial isn’t always about nailing down the exact look for the wedding day – in fact, thanks to the internet, most brides change their minds by the time the wedding day rolls around. But the trial is the perfect time to try out new things, and help you understand how to translate your own personal style into a bridal look. It’s also an awesome opportunity for the artist and bride to work on their relationship, and build a level of trust with eachother – so in situations where day of edits need to be made, or anything else comes up, the bride can trust her artist, and the artist can do their best work knowing they have that trust ? #bridalhairinspiration #bridalhairideas #vintagehairstyle #twistedupdo #texturedupdo #baltimorebridalhair
