Easy Prom Hairstyles – The Braided Bun

Braids and buns are two of the hottest hairstyle trends of 2012 and 2013! They come together for one of the best easy prom hairstyles.

The braided bun is oh so simple and stylish for long hair, and stunning with wavy and curly hair too. Here’s how to get the look!

Start with dry hair – air dried or a blowout. Work a shine serum through hair and brushing it with a mixed boar bristle brush, pull hair into a sleek high ponytail. Braid hair and secure it at the end.


Then wrap the braid into a bun, tucking the end underneath. Add a few bobby pins to secure long or thick hair and you’re just about set! If you have bangs, you can wear them down across the forehead indie style.

If you don’t have bangs and want to soften the look, you can style side swept bangs by leaving out a section of hair at the hair line and pulling it across the forehead. Keep everything in place (yet touchable) with a fine mist of hair spray.
