Prom hairstyles that I can do myself?

Lauren1223Lauren1223 Posts: 1Registered Users
Tomorrow I have senior prom & I'm really not sure what I should do with my hair. One idea that I have thought about is using 1.25 inch velcro curlers in my hair. I wonder how the naturally curlies use curlers or if they have any ideas for prom hairstyles leaving it curly!
Also, I don't have a diffuser & I think it's too late for me to get one for tomorrow! I have at my disposal: a flat iron, Velcro curlers, Bobbi pins, Pantene curly hair gel, John Freida serum, leave in conditioner, smoothing milk, and some mousse.
I also thought about sweeping all my hair to one side and placing a flower clip in my hair.
Tell me what you think! Thanks guys!

    It all depends on what kind of look you want - up and more classically formal? Looser and more romantic? I don't use curlers, so I can't speak to that. I sometimes will use spin pins to put my hair in a messy bun, then small jeweled combs to secure stray curls. I saw a post on here once where someone used pieces of hair from underneath to pull back sections and then secured with cute clips (wish I could find that picture). I also like the idea of sweeping to the side. Maybe try googling curly updos and see what comes up.

    My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!
