Are you trying to figure out what to do with your hair for the prom? If it is medium-length, there are a number of creative and beautiful prom hairstyles for medium hair that you can do on your own. The first thing you can do is decide whether you would like to wear it up or down. Some people prefer to have it in an up-do while others prefer to wear it flowing down around their shoulders.
Beautiful Curled Ends
Want to look beautiful without spending a lot of money visiting a stylist? If so, you can curl the ends and achieve a fantastic look in an hour or less. Start by washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner. Dry it until it is no longer damp at all.
Separate the bottom section from the top section using a comb. Put a clip in the top section to keep it out of the way. Plug your curling iron in, wait for it to get hot and then start curling the ends with a few pieces at a time. Instead of moving the curling iron from the ends all the way to the scalp, only roll the ends around the barrel of the iron, holding it for about 10-15 seconds before letting it go and noticing the beautiful loose curls.
If you would rather not do any curls, you can use a flat iron to flip your ends out instead. Make sure that your hair is clean and dry before getting started. Apply a heat protecting spray beforehand, paying special attention to the ends. Separate your hair into four separate sections and work on one section at a time.
Grab the flat iron and start with the strands at the scalp. As you work your way down with the flat iron, twist it on an angle to the right, hold it in place for about three seconds and then let it go. The ends should have a slight flip to them. Continue the process with the rest of the sections until it is all flipped out and looking amazing.
Slick Sock Bun
Would you like to wear your hair up instead of down? You could choose to do a slick sock bun. You would first need to brush it all back into a high and tight ponytail. You would then need to place a bun shaper over the ponytail so that the hair is hanging directly from it.
You would then need to wrap those strands around the bun shaper. Make sure that all of your strands cover the shaper so that nobody else can see it. Use a clear elastic to keep everything in place for the rest of the night. Add a little hairspray to ensure that everything looks good for the entire night.
These prom hairstyles for medium hair truly look fantastic. Whether you want to wear your hair up or down, any of these beautiful styles would look great on you and they are easy to do without the help of anyone else.
