Homecoming 2012 is around the corner. Many girls have already begun searching for their perfect homecoming dress but have you thought about how you are going to wear your hair? Thinking about what homecoming hairstyle you would like can help in picking out a homecoming dress. Many girls make the mistake of choosing a homecoming hairstyle that doesn’t fit the style of their dress. Here are some ideas of homecoming hairstyles and what homecoming dresses would work best.
Tip: First, think about how the entire day will go and your personal style. Some homecoming dances will immediately follow after a football game leaving less time to do your hair. Many others will be the day after the game giving you more time to pull off a formal homecoming hairstyle. No matter how your school handles homecoming, you want your hairstyle to reflect your personal style and be sure it is something you can pull off if you are doing yourself.
Long Hair with Curls and Side Braids
We love this look by Lauren Conrad. Curl your hair if you don’t have natural waves and then add a side braid and secure with bobby pins. This homecoming hairstyle is both pretty and easy to pull off and would work well with flirty homecoming dresses like this short dress by La Femme (style 17107).
The flowy skirt is feminine but adds a little bit of fun. You will love dancing the night away in this homecoming dress! The strapless neckline has a gorgeous gold floral pattern. Letting your curls fall loose over your neckline will complement the dress and adding the small side braid will keep your hair from getting in your face while dancing!
This stylish updo by Disney star Bella Thorne is the perfect hairstyle for a formal homecoming dress. The hairstyle is elegant but looks effortless thanks to the loose pieces around her face. Homecoming is a great opportunity to do a little more to your hair than you would during the day but generally homecoming hairstyles are not as formal as prom hairstyles. Think this would be a little difficult to pull off yourself? Invite some friends over and then you can each help with each other’s hair! This soft updo would complement a more formal homecoming dress like this one shoulder dress by Blush (style 9416).
This stunning dress features a modern one shoulder strap with beautiful but understated beadwork. The cut of the dress is very flattering and a cute updo like Bella’s would allow the details of the dress to stand out. This homecoming dress comes in red and black but our favorite is this vibrant violet color. Purple dresses are hot for fall!
Side Ponytail with Loose Curls
This isn’t your everyday ponytail! We love Carrie Underwood’s romantic twist on the classic ponytail. Curl your hair with a large barrel curling iron and secure with a simple hair band. Add a little smoothing serum to tame the frizz and make your hair shine and you are good to go! This low maintenance hairstyle will allow you to dance without worrying about your hair falling down. The soft curls are romantic so we think this hairstyle would look amazing with a pretty dress in a soft color like this light pink beauty by B’Dazzle (style 35418).
This strapless homecoming dress has a simple sweetheart necking with a pretty flower in the middle. The flowy a-line skirt and fitted high waist with ruching is flattering. The dress is made of iridescent chiffon which would look incredible with Carrie’s sweet and simple hairstyle!
Short Hair with Ringlets
Have short hair and worried what to do to dress it up for homecoming? You can make short hair a little more formal than your everyday look by adding some fun curls like Rihanna’s hairstyle. Having short hair means you don’t have to worry about your hair taking away from the dress by covering it up.
Rock a sassy dress like this short dress by Shail K (style KK3815). The beautiful ombre coloring will make you stand out (in a good way) on the big day! The dress has thick straps and this short hairstyle with lots of curls will make this sexy dress look more fun and less formal. Curls aren’t your thing? Try adding a simple hair accessory like a rhinestone hair clip or comb on the side of your hair for an easy way to dress up your everyday hairstyle for homecoming!
Shail K is one of the newest and hottest designers around and Prom Dress Shop has a great selection of these dresses for your next big event. Best known for their mini dresses, Shail K is the perfect designer to choose when looking for a sparkling, jaw dropping piece. These three features below are our favorites from the Shail K collection at Prom Dress Shop.
This black and silver shimmering dress is an absolute favorite. It features a sweetheart neckline, short length and beading throughout, and brings out the curves of your body with its tight fit. While the dress makes a great statement on its own, pair it with some simple silver or black earrings, some bracelets and a pair of heels to finish it off. Prom Dress Shop carries this dress by Shail K for $178.
Another favorite from Shail K is this long-sleeved, sparkling little black dress. The long sleeves make this item a perfect pick for homecoming in a cooler region of the country, and could even double as your next New Year’s eve dress. The plunging V neckline and encrusted sequins throughout the whole dress make this one a real eye catcher. Shail K also makes this dress in bronze, navy/silver, and platinum, and Prom Dress Shop carries them all for $220.
If you’re looking for something with a little pop of color, this red, sequined mini is a great option. Featuring an asymmetrical one shoulder strap, encrusted sequins and a form fitted figure, this dress will make you the center of attention. Perfect for this year’s homecoming, prom 2013 or girl’s night out, Prom Dress Shop carries this stunning piece for $158.
Along with these featured three, Shail K has so many other gorgeous dresses and Prom Dress Shop carries them all! Be sure to check them out and rock one to your next event!
