Having unruly hair is a bummer, especially when you want to try some of the best hairstyles for prom. But don’t fret! Your type of hair is the reason that the hairstyling industry is a billion-dollar empire. For centuries, women with problematic hair have been putting themselves though follicular hell trying to change their hair and assimilate to the current trends. Unfortunately, there are certain days of a woman’s life – namely prom and their wedding – when less than perfect hair won’t do. Fortunately, there are tons of styling products that can tame your unruly hair and give you a smooth, shiny and manageable mane.
Shine and Volume
If your hair has had a hard year and is thinning or looking totally dull, you can revamp it just in time for prom. Korres Hair & Scalp Scrub, Matrix Biolage Age Rejuvenating Densifying Concentrate and Toppik Hair Building Fibers are all products that make your hair healthier from the root to tip. If you just want temporary shine, try John Frieda’s Frizz Ease products.
Tame the Frizz
Frizz starts right after you wash your hair, so it’s important to use a leave in conditioner as soon as you get out of the shower. Style with a heat activated product that locks in the moisture to prevent dryness. The better you blow-dry your hair, the more manageable and long-lasting it will be, so make sure to use a high-quality dryer.
Hold That Lasts
Hairspray is an unruly head of hair’s worst enemy. It’s also a prom girl’s best friend. You can never use too much hairspray when it comes to prom. Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray, Dove Damage Therapy Extra Hold Hairspray are among the best in the market. They both keep your hair in place but without the sticky hard look.
If all else fails and your hair continues its unruly streak, just go with it. Bed head is in these days and there’s nothing worse than a sourpuss on prom.
