When it comes to updos, there are two ways to go – there’s total drama and romance or the classic and simple. They are equally beautiful – it’s really about your taste, style, and of course, dress! Every outfit should have one major focal point so pair a more complicated updo with an understated dress and a simpler updo with more outrageous dress. Check out these pictures of celebrity updos for prom 2014 for 10 hot and pretty looks!
For the dramatic looks, it’s not only about the hair but these prom hairstyles draw attention to the face and so are also all about the makeup. Keira Knightley‘s vintage-inspired hair and face are also perfectly on trend for 2014 – oh, that pink lip! Veronica Mars, ahem, Kristen Bell is wearing a fabulous version of the low curled updo that is so popular right now. Tons of texture and volume is added to her fine, blonde hair with twisted braids and a bit of a beehive. Ashlee Simpson is still rocking amazing hairstyles all over the place! This loose wavy updo is so pretty and totally formal while appearing effortless. The bold emerald earrings take the whole look up a notch.
The stunning Charlize Theron is wearing an updo somewhere between the last two – hair is worn in loose waves and pulled into a low updo over to one side. For something extra add a cute barrette or headband! Gemma Arterton shows how beautiful and simple wearing the major accessory trend of 2014, the headband, is.
And now on to the more simple celebrity hairstyles that are perfect prom updos. These are all best worn with a super sparkly, revealing, or eye-catching dress. The lovely Shailene Woodley wears thick hair piled up in a loose updo with ample bangs. The loose tendrils are just right with a strapless or strappy dress. With a bold hair color like Kelly Osborne‘s lavender hair, an easy updo showcases the bright hue. This high bun with bangs can be styled at home and looks simply fabulous.
One of the most classic updos ever is the French twist. It’s elegant, refined, and beautiful at any age. Chloë Grace Moretz gets the look with a slightly messy version plus heavy side swept bangs. Kendall Jenner is wearing a totally classic prom updo, hair worn up high with ringlet tendrils to frame the face. It’s pretty on absolutely everyone, especially with bold lashes and a bright red lip. There’s just something about a formal ponytail. Rachel McAdams is wearing a dreamy low side ponytail with high volume curls cascading over one collarbone.
