Half updos, wavy updos, chignons, and French buns are pretty common. This time, try a side updo. They look romantic, and are very popular. You can create any type of updo hairstyle, but whatever you do, fix the updo on one side of the head.

Also, if you are parting your hair sideways, then fix the updo on the side of the head which lies on the major parted side of the hair. Curly or straight simple updos look as great as side updos.
Unusual Braids

Barrel curls look good on any hair length, but making barrel curls on short hair is less time consuming. You can use cool rollers if you are going to damp your hair, or you can use curling irons, or hot rollers.

Create sections of your hair, and curl them. Open your curls after 10 minutes. And ta-da you have your very own barrel curls. But make sure you don't let the hot curling iron touch your scalp, or else it will burn your scalp.
Pinned Back Hairstyles

This is one of the simplest hairstyles anyone can opt for, and it helps you create an ever-lasting impression. All you need to do is take a section of your hair from behind your ears and pin it back.

Let the rest of your hair loose, you can also do curls, or waves on the loose strands. This hairstyle looks great on any kind of prom dress.
With every hairstyle, make sure you use some sort of hair accessory. There are many hair accessories to choose from. You can use simple hair bands or jeweled ones. You can also use ribbons for an elegant look.

Avoid rubber bands, as they give a tight look to the hair. If you are using rubber bands for securing the updo, then use transparent bands. Also, you can use dangling earrings to accessorize.

Once you are done creating your prom hairstyle, apply some good quality hair spray to it. This will make the hair appear shinier and keep the hairstyle in place for a longer time period.
