We can create a variety of gorgeous and on-trend prom hairstyles by adding waves to your hair.

For example, we can transform you into a rock chick, give you retro 1940s or 1950s waves, create cool mermaid waves, beach babe curls or pretty ringlets.

Depending on your hair type and texture, your curls will gradually loosen as the evening wears on to give your hair a more relaxed look.  Gorgeous!

One of the most popular and stylish of prom hairstyles is the upstyle or updo. 

We can create beautiful chignons, casual upstyles with face-framing tendrils, ballerina buns, plaited upstyles… the list is pretty much endless!

Your upstyle can look sophisticated, romantic, chic or edgy – just make sure you talk through your ideas with your stylist beforehand so we can create the perfect prom hairstyle for you.

It is also always helpful to tell us what you are wearing (or better still, show us a picture of your dress) so we can advise on a great look that compliments your outfit.
