Getting Ready: PROM Hair

Ah, guys!!! It's official. PROM is this Saturday.
I seriously cannot wait. But I need your guys' help with one thing -- A HAIRSTYLE
I want an updo just because it's a special occasion and it's the only time I'd actually get an updo.
Plus, my dress is open back so I don't want my hair to cover it.
I'm going for an OLD HOLLYWOOD LOOK.

I found 3 hairstyles that I really like.
They look pretty simple to do. I just can't decide which one I want.
Will you guys help me?

Skip to 4:46 for the finished look.

"Twist and Pull" Updo

This is the first look.
It looks more like a side bun.
I love her technique on how to make the bun. It's soooo cool.
I won't be adding a flower hair pin though.

Skip to 0:08 to 0:12.

Braided Updo

This one look really really pretty!
I love the braid that goes down all the way.
I also like the texture. There's something very elegant about it.

Skip to 0:04 to 0:10.

The "Faux Bob" Look

This one screams Old Hollywood don't you think?
I just love this hairstyle.
First off, it's simple to do. Just pin here, pin there.
And it goes perfect with the look I'm going for.

I really like the last look. But I also like the first 2 hairstyles.
I'm torn!!! Help?

What do you guys think? Which one should I do?

  1. i love braided updos, but i'm terrible at braiding my own hair! lol

  2. The braided updo! It looks gorgeous!

  3. they´re all looking great, but i would take the first one :)

    lovely greetings,

  4. I LOVE the braided updo!!

    Love always,

  5. The second and third ones are my favorite!

  6. GO FOR THE 3RD ONE!!!!!!!! I don't like the 2nd one at all, but the 3rd one is the best choice, in my opinion. :)


  7. I love braids so naturally the 2nd one!!! It's super elegant and adds a bit of diva to your hairstyle~

  8. The last one is gorgeous! You are going to look amazing in any of them though! Have fun and be safe!!

  9. wow these looks are ALL beautiful in my opinion. i think they all sort of feel retro inspired, i guess since women used to do so much to their hair even daily, and these all look like looks which could have been worn in the 40s or something. i think the middle one is my favorite, too bad i am so bad with hair that these tutorials would barely help me! i think you should do the 2nd look! i hope you have a great time at PROM!

  10. Aah, super exciting! Mine is tonight!!! I thought of going for an updo too, but my dress is strapless so i'm going for long waves/curls with braids. Have fun tomorrow, carrie!
