Easy Hair Ideas: 2011 Homecoming

Homecoming dances are just around the corner for most high schools.
It's the very first dance of the school year and it is usually the one EVERYONE attends.
I know, us, girls get EXTREMELY excited about dressing up and doing our hair and makeup.

We spend A LOT of time trying to decide which hairstyle to do with our beautiful locks. Furthermore, I know that we spend hours and hours just to perfect that hairstyle.

That is why I am here to give you girlies some simple hair dos that you can consider. They are really easy to do and at the same time very sophisticated and chic.

1.) The Ballerina Bun


Feel like a ballerina!
I personally love this look. It's very sophisticated.
I love to wear dangling earrings with this just because you can really show them off.

2.) Loose Curls


Go for a romantic glam look!
This is also one of my favorite hairstyles.
Not only is it easy to do but it lasts the whole night.
And the more you dance, the effortless and messier it will look.

3.) Braided Up Do


Add a Bohemian feel to your ensemble!
If you are going for a Bohemian look, doing a bunch of braids is the best way to go.

4.) High Ponytail


Look glamorous with a high ponytail!
This is a good way to highlight your dress. If you're wearing a sparkly dress and you want the attention there, this is the perfect hair for you.

5.) Romantic Half Up, Half Down


Some of us are really indecisive about whether we want our hair up or down.
Going for a half up, half down look will also look really pretty.
You can also wave the bottom part for a more girly feel.

6.) Side Braid


Stay casual with a side braid.
Whether it be fishtail or french, side braids will surely give you a more laidback look.
This can also work if you're trying to go for the simple look.

7.) Natural Curls


Go Au-Naturale with your natural curls!
If your hair is naturally curly, rock it. Add an accessory and dance the night away!

8.) Hair Bows


Accessorize with a hair bow!
Add a hair bow to your bun, braid, or curls.
It will come out super cute especially if your dance theme is 50's inspired.

9.) Headbands


Adding a headband will also vamp up any look.
You can wear it with your bun, your curls, or even rock it in the hippie look like Taylor Swift. Just remember not to over-accessorize!

I hope that this gave you girls a couple of ideas. I know it helped me a lot on deciding.

How are you planning to do your hair any upcoming events? If you've already had your Homecoming Dance, what kind of hairstyle did you choose to do?

  10. Totally loves the hair tied literally into a bow, but my fav look is the first set of braids right below it... braided on top with a loose mane on the bottom. I can't wait until my hair is long enough again to try something like that!!

  11. @FemmeVirtue: I actually kind of know how. It's really complicated though and it takes A LOT of practice.

    @Diana: It definitely took me time to gather all of these photos. That's why I'm really glad that you liked it. :D

    @Honey: Thank you so much!

    @MissFaty: Thank you :)

    @OneCraftyFox: I just recently cut my hair. And looking at that particular picture really makes me miss it. :(
