Gentlemen start crafting your asks and ladies start pinning your favorite looks because Spring Prom Season is just around the corner! It’s time to get those dresses and start mapping out your fabulous look from head to toe! On the red carpet at this year’s award season and on all the runways, we are seeing fashion icons embracing minimalist–natural looks. As someone who is a firm believer that less is more, I’m obsessed with this trend! It’s all about working with what you’ve got in its natural state – this means natural curls, stick straight hair or the in-between wavy. We are all beautiful in our own unique way, each of us have gorgeous distinct features, so why not accentuate them?
Here are a five of my favorite looks to try this Prom Season!
For a while now braids have been on the festival scene among other boho inspired styles. Whether it is a crown or wrap, braids are a great chic way to dress up your look!
Style tip: Use a combination of unwashed hair, Big Sexy Hair H2NO (a dry shampoo that provides shine and prolongs the time between shampoos) and Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play (lifts and holds hair in place) to pull off this effortless braided hairstyle.
UpDon’t – Lower HairDo!
Updos and tight curls are so Prom 2007. Today, it’s all about whimsical waves and low bun-styles. Try a messy bun or playful chignon. **Extra tip – add some fresh flowers to your do! Try a floral crown or some baby’s breath threaded throughout your hair.
Style tip: For the perfect chignon, use Big Sexy Hair Powder Play on your roots and on the crown of your head for instant volume and lift! Then, use Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play to hold all the beauty in place. Chignon image source: Jake Anderson
Old Hollywood glam never goes out of style. Think Marilyn Monroe meets Rita Ora. Manicured voluminous curls scream elegance. A bold red lip is great to pair with this classy hairstyle.
Style tip: Use Big Sexy Hair Full Bloom and give your style 3 days of volume! This non-aerosol spritz is created with 24 hour fragrance revival that delivers time-released blooming scent to your style. Its superior humidity protection helps fight frizz with a weightless product feel! (Be sure to follow these steps to activate the Full Bloom formula: Shake the bottle, apply to damp hair, and blow dry. Tousle your hair throughout the day to release the fragrance.)
Sleek is Chic
Sported by Kim and Kendall Kardashian, the slicked back hairstyle is all the craze right now. This hairstyle looks amazing with natural makeup and a bright lip! This look is also great because it will not only keep your hair out of your face all night, but it will really highlight your facial features.
Style tip: Use Big Sexy Hair Powder Play to instantly get full, voluminous hair. Ideal for instant volume on dry hair it is the fastest, easiest way to get big sexy hair in a few seconds!

Ponytails aren’t just for lazy hair-days anymore. There are countless innovative and fabulous ways to spice up your ponytail – twist, weave, knot, braid, fishtail – the options are endless!
Style tip: This style holds better if you use your hair unwashed (even better a few days unwashed!). Pair that with Big Sexy Hair H2NO, a dry shampoo that provides shine and prolongs the time between shampoos (3+ days!), resulting in color vibrancy and reduction of chemical damage to the hair. Finish with Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play, which lifts and holds your hair in place.
