Don't want to go all the way up or down? These half-up/half-down prom hairstyles are gorgeous.

The half-up/half-down style is perhaps the hottest hairstyle for prom this year. You can add extensions for extra length, curl hair around the barrel of a curling iron or with hot rollers and then clip the sides of hair in the back. Variations on this look include

  • Twisting the sides and clipping them in the back.
  • Pinning hair back with a jeweled hair clip (I love the idea of taking a vintage or antique pin and attaching it to a hair clip so it stays in hair).
  • Clipping back only one side.
  • Pinning fresh flowers to one side of the pinned back section.
