This is a special look for that special occasion. It combines the intricacy of a well-styled fishtail braid with long, wavy locks of hair that have fantastic texture to result in a glamorous prom hairstyle that promises to grab everyone’s attention. Go for slightly rougher textures as they help long hair look more beautiful and give them a more natural appearance.
While this technique is a lot better than using curling irons and flat irons in terms of hair health, you should be careful not to expose your hair to too much heat as this can leave it looking frizzier and damage the roots. For smooth straight-haired looks, keep your hair sufficiently moisturized. Instead of towel drying it after washing it, try blotting it as the towel will leave it overly dry and frizzy.
Use hair products with heat protection properties and point the nozzle of the dryer downwards to encourage the cuticle hairs to flatten in order to get that glossy finish. Always untangle your locks before sectioning them and styling them using a round brush. Although it will last for a few days, protect your hairdo in the shower and while sleeping.
