18 Beautiful Prom Hairstyle Ideas For Long Hair

If you have long hair, the world is pretty much your oyster when it comes to prom hairstyle ideas. Don’t get me wrong, there are still plenty of gorgeous prom hairstyles if you have short hair, but the extra length of long hair allows you to be really creative. Having long hair can be easier because you can play around without having to worry about extensions or using 249 bobby pins.

So, I encourage you to take advantage of your hair for prom and get creative. Don’t settle for some standard chignon. Play around with half updos, wearing your hair down, and full updos. And remember that half the fun of prom is experimenting with your look. In need of some hairspiration? Have a gander at 18 gorgeous prom hairstyles for long-haired ladies.
