No. 6: Braids, Braids, Braids
Braids can be romantic. You can braid long hair back as seen here on Jennifer Lopez. Or try braiding a couple sections on either side of hair and pull back and clip. You can also wrap around the head like a headband. See some examples here:

No. 7: Headbands, Feathers & Ballerina Bands
Add a ballerina band, a headband, feathers or barrettes to your hair this Homecoming.
No. 8: The Classy Ponytail
Who says ponytails aren't dressy enough when some of the top celebrities hit the red carpet with ponytails. The secret is to wrap a section of hair around the ponytail base so the elastic is hidden. See the photo gallery for instructions on how exactly to do this.
Consider pinning up your hair into a fake bob for Homecoming this year. This casual look is super cool, just make sure to keep a few tendrils and consider curling your hair first. These styles look best when hair is curled.
