The Best Homecoming Dance Hairstyles

It’s August, which means back to school season is almost here. The new season is full of things to look forward to: fall weather, holidays… and homecoming! The homecoming football game is almost as exciting as the main event: the homecoming dance. You only get a handful of homecomings as a teenager, so of course you want them to be extra special. Air Salon & Blow Dry Bar wants to make your homecoming memories as special as you want them to be. As you may know, the key to a great night is great hair. Here are some homecoming hair ideas to get you inspired for the autumn season.

Buns. Buns are classy, elegant and work on almost anybody with enough hairspray. A classic ballerina bun can be dressed up or down for your dress. For a romantic twist, leave a few face-framing strands out of your bun. You can curl the strands for added glamour. Want to add a bit of edge? Try two small buns at the crown of your head, also known as “space buns”. This unique style will definitely help you stand out.

Braids. Braided hairstyles range from super-simple to fancy and complex. For a pretty but no-frills style, try a fishtail braid. This twist on a regular braid is perfect for special occasions. Want something a little fancier? A crown braid will do the trick. It is exactly what it sounds like: a braid wrapped around your head just like a crown. Another fun but uncomplicated style is the headband braid. That is a braid pinned to your head like — you guessed it — a headband.

Basics. Although these styles are simple, they are anything but boring. They are classics for a reason! Super-straight hair makes a statement, especially if you have naturally curly or wavy hair. It also works best if you have an intricate or patterned dress. You also can never go wrong with loose curls. Finally, a high ponytail is an attention-grabbing style that looks flattering on everybody.
