The Best Prom Hairstyles for Short Hair

Oh, what to do for hairstyles for short hair for prom? It’s true, there aren’t as many options  but there’s plenty of fun to be had! You can add feathers or finger waves or specially style hair.

Here’s how to get the best prom hairstyles for short hair!

1. Final Trim – Get a haircut or trim a week or two before prom (or even the day of to take advantage of free hairstyling). You’ll have a super clean neckline, no split ends, and the perfect shape.

This is not a good time to try out a new hairstyle. If you want to try out Cary Mulligan’s crop, Keira Knightley’s pixie, or any one of Rihanna’s edgy short cuts, do it a while before prom (just in case!).

2. Product – The key to elevating hair from everyday to prom is product. Here’s how to get blowout hair at home.

In addition to that, you can add shine with a product like Fekkai Sheer Shine Mist (mists add shine to short hair without any weight). Or take it to the next level and some glitz with Moroccanoil Gold Glimmer Shine Spray Prom Hairstyles for Short Hair.

3. Accessories – When you have short hair, accessories are your friend. There are two ways to accessorize for prom – hair accessories or jewelry (pick one – you don’t want too many!).

For short hair, you can add feathers, wear a headband, or add a vintage touch like finger waves.

If you don’t want hair to be the focal point, wear some fabulous jewelry (or show off your tattoo). Long earrings look great with short hair! Or you can wear a sparkly necklace, bold bracelet, and of course the always fabulous red lipstick.
