Cool ideas for looking chill at the prom

No more cookie-cookie styles. Prom hair has changed thanks in part to Matrix --a top of the line professional haircare and haircolor company whose artistic director Robert Santana,  owner of the trendy Elements Salon in Brooklyn, NY, says, "Today's prom-goers use this special event to express their style, their individuality and their point of view". He identifies seven trends for every hair length that allow young ladies to show the world what they're all about!
1. Bed Head Ballerina BunsThese are the anti-stiff prom hairdos! Casual and disheveled, these buns are perfect for adornment with sparkly headbands or even fresh flowers. Loose, wispy, face-framing tendrils balance messy with sweet, and a dark root in the hair color adds depth to the design. "Enhance the texture with a dry shampoo like Matrix Style Link Mineral Play Back," advises Santana. "It will provide the grip needed to keep the hair in place."
2. Rapunzel WavesNothing is more romantic than a tumble of soft, feminine waves. Santana creates the curls with a ¾-inch curling iron, then pulls the ends to stretch the hair. A princess-worthy headband, adorned with pearls or sparkly stones, completes the picture.
3. Half Up & Half Down Braid BouquetsIrregular braids nestled in soft waves put a unique spin on a half-up/half-down hairstyle. "If the budget allows," says Santana, "highlights will really show off the details of this style."
4. Side-Sweep WavesGlamorous, glossy waves, swept over one shoulder, bring every girl's red carpet fantasy to life. To keep waves in place, Santana places a row of bobby pins behind the ear on the opposite side.
5. '80s CurlsCurly girls everywhere are embracing their natural textures, and prom is the perfect place for a head-full of springy coils. Santana refines curls by applying a lightweight curl cream like Biolage Curl Defining Elixir to damp hair, separating the head into one-inch section, dividing each section in half and twisting all of the halves together tightly. Once hair is dry, he carefully unfurls each twist.
6. Polished PixiesWho says short hair can't be dressed up? A pixie cut gets prom-ready with lift at the root and peek-a-boo bangs.
7. Gatsby WavesThese waves start with the idea of '20s finger waves, then go slightly askew with fun and funky hair clips. It's a young, fresh take on a classic hairstyle!
