Do it Yourself Prom Hairstyle

Prom is coming up, and I bet all of you young ladies are trying to figure out what to do with your hair! Let me guarantee that you will not have to spend over $ 100 styling your hair because I'm going to tell you how to do it yourself. This style is classic and never goes out of season. It works best on hair of medium to long length, and of any type. You will need a few ponytail holders and lots of bobby pins.

Start simply, put your hair up into 2 ponytails, if your hair is very thick you may want to do 4 ponytails in a square on the back of your head. From there, start with 1 ponytail and divide it into half and half again so you end up with four equal sections (more if you have very thick hair). Keep each one separate by loosely tying a holder around each one, or simply throwing it over your head.

Take the strand in the middle of your head and make sure it has no tangles. Use caution with your brush, you do not want to accidentally mix up the strands. Wet your hands with water, or gel if you want to insure no flyaways. Run your hands along the length of the strand until it is wet enough to hold a shape.

Starting at the top, twist the strand to a tight spiral. Once you have 1.5-2 inches twisted hold it against your skull with one hand and pin it down with the other. If you have a difficult time getting the pin to stay, use a second and cross it over the first. So you will end up with two pins forming an X holding your hair in place.

Continue twisting and pinning every two inches or so until the strand is finished. Move on to the next strand in the same ponytail and do the same thing. It is best if you keep the new curls as close as possible to the originals to avoid any open space. When done with all the strands in the first ponytail, simply move on to the next and work your way from the center out.

Fancy It Up a Bit

Some tips to fancy this up a bit would be to twist the hair back into the ponytails. Or, you could make a zig-zag part all the way from your forehead to your neck. You could also gel the ends of each strand so they stick out straight from the coils. Do not forget about glitter hairspray!
