16 Beautiful Ways To Wear Braids To Prom

Braids are a great summer hairstyle, but they’re not just for lazy beach days and for getting hair off your sweaty neck. They are also great for prom.

Another great thing about braids is that they’re versatile. They can work in updos, half updos, and if your natural hair is already in plaited braids, you can sculpt them into gorgeous hairstyles. You can even plait braids together for a look with extra texture and a pretty finish. And then we get into all of the different styles. Fishtail, waterfall, Dutch braids, I could go on. They all look beautiful by themselves, but when you combine them together and they can look even better together.

Have I convinced you to try a braided updo for prom yet? Scroll down to see 16 drop dead gorgeous ways to incorporate braids into your prom hairstyle.
