Braids have been huge news in the fashion world for the last few seasons now so why not use them as inspiration for a romantic and pretty up-do that will set off your dress to perfection. This elegant up-do manages to avoid the dreaded lacquered-into-oblivion look that can happen when a hair stylist has slightly too ambitious ideas. The relaxed curls with the wide and loose braid are really a perfect princess look, and even if you are planning to style your own hair, this is one style that you can easily learn to do yourself (or get a friend to do it of course!). Even if you don’t have long hair you can just forget the bun and enjoy a slightly messy yet alluring style.
Braids really are huge news in the world of prom hairstyles, and if you have long hair, then a beautiful mermaid-esque braid is the perfect way to show your tresses off.

Unless you have a supremely talented friend though, this is one style that you’ll need to leave in the safe hands of a professional.
