This first style creates a beautiful, classic look for your wedding or prom. It used to be that all special occasion hairstyles required some sort of fancy updo, but now you can look glamorous and appropriate to the situation with your hair down. Curls are very popular this year, so if you have naturally curly hair you can feel free to let it go natural. If you don’t have curly hair, many girls are choosing to curl it for that one special day. This look is relatively easy to accomplish: if you need to curl your hair, it is curled, if not you can leave it as is. Then a few pieces are pulled back to keep them out of your face. A bit of a poof is created on top, and the tiara goes over that. A veil can also be added. Rocking this hairstyle will be sure to encourage many others to let their hair down for special occasions as well!

However, if you do want your hair completely up, this style is a great, modern up-do. Hair salons are getting quite good at putting a modern twist on this classic. Though the back part is a typical updo, with curly hair arranged nicely, the front is completely 2011. A dramatic side part really adds some flair to this look. Leaving some of the hair out of the updo and pulled off to the side is a lookthat is becoming very popular these days for prom hair styles and wedding hair styles.

A ponytail might not be the first thing you think of when you think of proms and weddings, but it can really be dressed up and look amazing. Black hair looks especially sleek and sexy pulled back in a fancy ponytail. For this look, the hair is pulled back into a ponytail and is then curled. However, some small strands or bangs are left out of the ponytail to frame the face. Dramatic curls or other hair styles can be added around the base of the ponytail. This is a really unique look for special occasions that is quickly gaining attention all over the country.
