16 Cute Prom Hairstyles For Girls With Short Hair

There’s an idea that if you have short hair, you can’t do anything with it. That is a total lie. You might not be able to create the elaborate updos that long-haired ladies can, but you can still do a lot with short hair. Instead of focusing on what you wish you had, I encourage you to think about playing around with what you have, because it can result in some gorgeous hairstyles, especially for prom.

If you’re scrolling through pages and pages of prom hairstyles and wondering where they ones are for your short hair, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve rounded up some of the cutest prom hairstyles for short-haired ladies. Besides a variety of styles, they’re also hairdos that you could create yourself. Here are 16 super cute prom hairstyles for short-haired girls.

Play up the texture in hair with a romantic tousled style. Side-swept bangs frame the face.


2. Side Braid

A side braid works no matter your hair type. For something extra fancy, top it with a pretty hair accessory.


3. Messy Bob

Don’t underestimate how texture can totally transform a pixie cut.


4. Short Hair With Side Part

This is so simple but so cute. Pro tip: Use bobby pins to keep everything in place.


5. Soft Waves

Love some retro vibes? This is your ‘do.


6. Vintage Curls

Just look at the volume. If you have shorter hair, you can still stick a roller in the front.


7. Tousled Hair

A side part plus curly hair is very pretty.


8. Sleek Side And Tousled Top

Create a new shape by mixing different textures. Slick down one side and add some body to the top for a faux-hawk look.


9. Curly Top

Soft, sexy and sophisticated!

12. Bob With Bangs

Even if you don’t have pink hair, a sleek bob like this will still slay.


13. Pin-Up Hair

Curl those bangs then tie a kerchief in your hair for rockabilly vibes. Imagine this look with a fit-and-flare dress.


14. Short Curly Hair

Embrace your hair texture and don’t be afraid to keep it simple.


15. Twisted Back With Hair Accessory

Modify this look no matter what your hair length. The thing to keep is the placement of the hair accessory.


16. Mint And Blonde Wavy Bob

It’s not about how many curls you have, it’s about the placement. Just look at these finger waves.
