The prom season is fast approaching, and it’s time to turn your attention to your hairdo. Updos offer a great range of options for all types of hair and face shapes. Let’s dive into expert advice from renowned hairstylist Linda Miller to help you choose the perfect updo for your big night.

Choosing the Right Updo for Your Hair Type and Face Shape

Consider your hair type and texture when selecting your prom updo, advises Miller. Fine hair can be a bit tricky to work with, as it may not hold a curl. To counter this, Miller suggests using a dry shampoo or texturizing spray on the roots for added grip and volume. Braids, twists, and knots can also help create a fuller look.

The Perfect Updo for Every Face Shape

For those with thick hair, know that it’s your time to shine! Thick hair is great for creating volume and texture in your updo. However, it can also be more challenging to style. Miller suggests using a light hold hairspray on each section before styling to help maintain the shape. And remember, when in doubt, consult a professional for the best results!
