How to Get Prom Curls That Last All Night!

Have you ever spent time styling your hair just so, only to have it fall flat the second you get out the door? Well that is not going to happen at prom!

Once you’ve spent the time creating a gorgeous curly hairstyle for prom, here’s how to get prom curls that last all night long!


1. Prep Hair. Before you begin curling hair, start with a product that will help hold curl, add volume, and minimize frizz. There are a few options to choose from, like Bumble and bumble Curl Conscious Holding Foam, John Frieda Curl Perfecting Spray, or TIGI Catwalk Curl Booster.

2. Set It! Once you’re done curling hair with your chosen method, (Do you use a curling iron, flat iron, or rollers?) set the curls. You can use a heat protectant spray while curling that goes the distance, like Biolage Thermal-Active Set Spray.

Or you can set hair after hair is curled with a touchably soft hairspray, like CHI Enviro Flex Hold Hair or Dove Flexible Hold Hair Spray.

3. No Touching! Sure, you have gorgeous touchable curls but don’t play with them! Touching and running fingers through curls will carry oils from hands to the curls. The grease will weigh hair down and separate curls, not the look you’re going for!┬áIf you do need to freshen up hair, be sure to wash hands first.

4. Revive! If curls need a booster, do what you would do while blow drying hair to add volume. Flip hair upside down, gently fluff hair at the scalp, and scrunch curls to bring them back to life. Your curled prom hair will be good as new!
