DIY Prom/Formal 2012 hair trends & Giveaway from LifeSpa (Now Closed)

Beauty DIY!

Hey Beauties!

With prom around the corner, Summer weddings and many other formal events, I’m sure plenty of you are looking for advice for how you or your daughters/sisters/nieces etc should do your hair while still staying on budget.

Today I have a few of the hottest prom/formal hair trends for 2012 from stylists at LifeSpa that are super easy to replicate at home.

The Double Braid

  • These braids are a twist on the classic French braid and are actually called inside out French braids 
  • Start with three sections of hair at the hairline and instead of braiding over, braid from underneath starting with the backmost length 
  • Incorporate hair closest to the hairline braiding back towards the ear 
  • Secure the braid with a bobby pin 
  • Gather three sections of adjacent hair and repeat 
  • Once braids are secure, pull hair back into a bun 
  • Accessorize with a clip-in flower, feathers or a hair clip 

Messy Side Bun

  • Pull hair into a low side bun and secure with an elastic 
  • Take the ponytail and gather hair into a ball in your hands 
  • Secure using an elastic and wrapping it a few times 
  • Pull hair at the roots to add some volume 

Flawless Ballerina Bun

  • Secure hair in a high ponytail
  • Tease the ponytail to add volume
  • Twist hair clockwise into a tight bun, leaving about an inch of hair out at the bottom
  • Secure bun with large bobby pins
  • Wrap remaining hair around once and pin it or leave it out for a messier look
