Copy Lucy Hale's Braid Hairstyle For The Ultimate Last Minute Prom 'Do — PHOTOS
Prom season can be just as stressful as it is fun. I mean, finding the perfect gown and deciding how you’re going to do your hair and makeup is the best part of the entire process, but it’s also nerve-racking. If you don’t already have a hair strategy in place for the big night — fret not! Because Lucy Hale has your last minute prom hair sorted with her latest flower-filled updo.
On top of being absolutely adorable, this hairstyle is great because it can work no matter how long or short your hair may be. Hale’s sporting a bob haircut at the moment, and still managed to pull the look off flawlessly. So, for all you short haired girls, this is a good sign! Hale’s hairstyle consisted of a braided updo with tendrils left out to frame her face. The back of her head was adorned with real flowers and diamond studded bobby pins for a delicate, ethereal touch. Precious, right?
Whether you choose to use real flowers to match that corsage of yours or not, you can easily recreate this look. Flower accessories will look just as good as the real deal (plus— they won’t wilt by the end of the night). So, if you’re interested in a simple, yet gorgeous hairstyle for prom night, welp, I think you just found it!
Here's a view from the front. I just love how she left pieces down in the front. It really makes the 'do seem even more effortless.
And here it is from the back. Doesn't it just take your breath away?
