Best Prom Updos


Vanessa Hudgens
The Messy Ponytail

Vanessa Hudgens' oh-so-undone updo makes the most of her natural texture. Her stylized sweep is incredibly achievable for girls with curly or wavy hair, says King.

How to do it: Start by adding texturizing cream to just-washed hair. Let air-dry. Then, sweep hair into a high ponytail, and hide the elastic hairband by wrapping a section of hair around it and securing with a bobby pin. Let face-framing layers drift out naturally, or pull a few out and wrap around fingers to define waves. Don't get too fussy adding curls with an iron; this style looks best a bit mussed, and for best results, finger-tousle hair for a natural, messier look. Bonus: This 'do will only improve on the dance floor.
