With all the recent awards ceremonies, there are so many new pictures of prom-worthy hairstyles and dresses fresh off the red carpet, like these different ways that actresses recently wore braided hairstyles. Check out these 5 celebrity updos with braids that are perfect for prom!
Add a fun and easy twist to the usual braided hairstyles is by using a different type of plait. Here, Jennifer Morrison wears the popular and gorgeous crown braid with the more textured and fine fishtail braid. Curled tendrils on each add lovely softness to the trendy updo.
Rachel McAdams brings some of that romance she’s known for on-screen to this lovely hairstyle. This is a unique take on the braided updo with multiple layers and sizes of plaits all over. There are two rows of braids on top and check out the teeny tiny braid detail at the back!
For anyone with a high forehead, some kind of bangs are a must. Always fashion forward, Christina Ricci knows just the right way to make the halo braid her own. The plait is worn further back on the head, just behind wispy brow-skimming bangs worn over to one side. Or wear this look with an oversized braid in a contrasting color like Vanessa Hudgens.
If you’re all about the side part, here’s how to make it work with a braided updo. The French braids show a hint of 1980s Carrie Bradshaw influence on AnnaSophia Robb‘s adorable updo. This prom hairstyle puts your face forward so be sure to wear it with eye-catching earrings and a makeup focal point – either the eyes or lips, not both.
If you already have your heart set on an updo for prom, just add a braid to get in on the hottest hairstyle of 2014. Sarah Michelle Gellar is picture perfect with an inside-out braid leading to a loose updo worn off to one side.
