This elegant mock bob style will be equally pretty if your dress is off the shoulder or on-to get the look crimp hair all over with a large crimping iron and then pin under at the desired bob length, and finish your look with a trendy glittering barrette.

These are two looks you can get with the same basic haircut and length, one curly and one straight-the curly up do would be very pretty with an off the shoulder gown and the other would compliment an on the shoulder gown very well. The up do is done by making all over spring curls with a medium barrel curling iron, then pulling the crown back into a high bun. Let the rest of the curls cascade or twist into a French twist, allowing the ends to escape down the back. Leave a few tendrils to frame and soften the face and add a hair adornment for a romantic look. For the straight look, roll on large hot rollers or large barrel curling iron for body, brush into place and add a headband for a trendy finishing touch.

This over the shoulder braid is very romantic with the addition of a back combed (teased) crown which adds height and interest to the style. When backcombing is in place, loosely braid hair over one shoulder- leaving a few strands loose for a relaxed, pretty style-finish with a flower or sparkling hairpin.

Short hairstyles for prom

A formal look for shorter hair such as a bob is as easy as a profusion of spring curls topped with a glittering tiara, beautiful flowers or sparkling hair jewelry. To get this flirty look, section hair in approximately one inch squares and curl each section with a medium barrel curling iron. For even more interest and texture, alternate medium iron with a small barrel iron. When curl is all in place, fluff with fingers and apply a texturizing spray.
