Hairstyle Ideas For Your School Formal

Hairstyle Ideas For Your School Formal

Your school formal is the one night of the year that you get to feel like a true princess. Even if you are someone who does not usually enjoy dressing up, this is the night that you can go all out. Of course, there are many things to think about, including the shoes, the bag, the date, the dress, the make-up and the hair!

As experts in formal hair in Penrith, here is our list of stunning ideas for hairstyles for your upcoming school formal.


Updos have an elegant and classic look about them and are ideal if you really want to show off your makeup, jewellery and dress.Having your hair swept up into an upstyle can also be quite convenient, as your hair won’t get stuck in zippers or get into your food. Having your hair off your neck is also ideal if it’s going to be a warm night.

Some modern yet classic updo ideas include:

  • Braid-wrapped high bun
  • Low bun
  • Sleek high ponytail
  • French bun
  • Beehive updo
  • Crown braid

Down Styles

Down styles can often look a bit more casual than upstyles, but they can also look incredibly beautiful and are great if you’re going for a more relaxed, bohemian-esque look. In recent years, we’ve definitely seen more and more down styles becoming popular for formals, and these looks are often easier to achieve on your own than updos are.

Some down style ideas include:

  • Beachy waves
  • Waterfall braids
  • Half up, half down

What To Consider When Deciding On A Style

When deciding on a formal hairstyle, there are quite a few things that you may want to take into consideration, including the length, colour and texture of your hair. Your hair colour, length and type may determine which styles are available to you.

Secondly, you may want to consider your dress and the overall look and concept that you are going for. Remember that you can always accessorise your hair with flowers, clips, etc.
