For girls with shoulder length hair, prom night can be a challenge because their hair is neither short nor long, but in the middle and stops right at their shoulders. Girls preparing for prom can do anything they want to their hair no matter what length it is, and here are some cute prom hairstyles for shoulder length hair that can turn both curly hair or straight hair into a wonderful hairstyle that will not only match a girl’s outfit, but also be preserved forever at picture time.
Hairstyles for medium length hair
Straight shoulder length hair that looks wind-blown:
With hair parted in the middle, a girl can then turn upside down and let her hair dryer do the rest! By drying her hair upside down, gravity is going help straight hair have plenty of volume and a wind-blown look that is going to really compliment her dress, makeup, and overall prom night look.
Braids in the side of the head with curls added in:
One popular style for teenage girls to do their hair is to braid the sides of their hair. While some girls braid their hair just to go to school, the same style can also be used for an unforgettable prom night hair style. To make braided hair a little more formal for prom, one single braid should be for each side, but then the rest of the hair should be curled. The bangs can be combed up to give them more volume, and with the rest of the hair being curled and styled, a girl is going to have a special prom night look that is going to make her stand out from the rest of the girls with their boring hair and lack of fashion sense.
A side swept hairdo:
Typically, girls who are wearing a one shoulder dresses tend to put one side of their hair back to counteract the fact they have one bare shoulder. However, a side swept hairdo can be for any style of prom dress one shoulder or not. A girl can look her best with one side of her hair pulled back, and then decorated with things like jewels, flowers, or even a jewel covered barrette that can sit right above her ear. If the decoration a girl uses on the side of the head just happens to match the dress, then her hair style will really make her look beautiful on prom night.
Half slicked back hair with a flip on the opposite side:
For a girl that wants to combine modern look with old fashioned glamour, there is a hair style that has half of her hair slicked back, but the other half pushed forward with the hair flipped up. Many famous old Hollywood stars would sometimes have flips at the end of their hair that went out, which was considered quite glamorous in their day. For modern girls, they can emulate that same look especially with a vintage style dress. To really set them apart with their old Hollywood glamour style, a girl can have her makeup done in the same way from that era with the pale face, light pink lips, and heavy makeup around the eyes with false eyelashes. An accessory that girls can choose for their vintage dress would be a feather boa, or even a special ruffled wrap in a half jacket style that she can slip off and on. Old Hollywood glamour can come into the 21st century thanks to this slick backed hair style with the right makeup and accessories. A young girl dressing like a Hollywood starlet from the days of old can
add a touch of class to any prom, even one that is held in a barn or even the school gymnasium.
