5 Homecoming Hairstyles to Know Before This Year’s Dance

Homecoming is right around the corner! That means it’s time to start planning your perfect homecoming look. Though homecoming isn’t quite as fancy as Prom or Winter Ball, you still want to look your best, which includes having a stunning hairstyle.

Haven’t decided what to do with your hair quite yet? Check out these homecoming hairstyles that will perfect your look.

1. Chignon with Side Fishtail

This elegant style combines the intricacy of a braid with the loose, romantic look of a chignon.

Instead of a traditional fishtail braid down the back of your head, this braid is done on one side and ends at the nape of your neck.

The rest of your hair is loosely gathered at the nape of your neck. It can be secured with bobby pins tucked into the hair or decorative pins or barrettes, depending on the style you’re going for.

This hairstyle is perfect if you want to keep your hair out of your face while dancing, but you don’t want a complicated updo. It’s also perfect for showing off your dress if there’s special detailing on the back.

2. Braided Bob

Braids aren’t just for long hair. If you have a chin length or longer bob, then you can rock braids too!

There’s a few different styles you could try in your shorter hair. You could do a single braid down one side of your head. Or you could do two thin braids around the top of your head creating a braid crown. You could also do several tiny braids and use small elastics to tie them together into a pattern.

The rest of your hair can be left down loose, either straightened or with a slight wave.

3. Braid Crown and Loose Ringlets

If you’re looking for a fairy tale homecoming, then this romantic hairstyle will perfect your homecoming look.

Two small braids encircle the crown of your head, creating a literal crown of braids. The rest of your hair hangs loose, in large ringlet curls.

The size of the ringlets can be tweaked by using different size curling irons. Looser ringlets will create a more wavy look, while tighter ringlets will look more like spirals.

Either way, this hairstyle leaves you looking like the fairy tale princess you are.

4. Twisted Side Pony

If you’re looking for an easy style that’s more than just a simple ponytail, this homecoming hairstyle is it!

Your hair is gathered into a ponytail at the side of your head, near your chin. Then the hair is separated into two sections, which are tightly twisted around each other.

This look adds an interesting twist (pun intended) on your traditional ponytail, dressing it up just enough to make it a beautiful homecoming hairstyle.

5. Messy Bun with Loose Ringlets

Who says your favorite easy hairstyle isn’t appropriate for homecoming? You can easily dress up a messy bun by adding some loose ringlets around your face.

The majority of your hair is gathered into a messy bun, either at the nape of your neck or the top of your head. If the bun is at the nape of your neck, some hair is left loose and curled into loose ringlets. If the bun is at the top of your head, some hair is left loose around the face and curled into loose ringlets.

Leaving some hair loose and adding some ringlets upgrades your casual everyday hairstyle to something that’s just dressy enough to complete your homecoming look.
