Homecoming Hairstyles for Long Hair

If you want your homecoming hairstyle to make headlines, take a cue from Blake Lively.

Blake Lively’s laid-back yet glam braid is a perfect for homecoming. First, lightly run pomade or spray wax through your hair (this will make it easier to work with). Section off your bangs or the front part of your hair. Then, take a chunk of hair along the left side of your part and divide it into three sections. Braid it so it falls back behind your shoulder. Tie the end of your braid with a small elastic band.

Pin the sides of your hair back at the nape of your neck. Leave a few wispy pieces loose to frame your face.

Then, gather the rest of your hair and tuck it underneath itself at the nape of your neck to create a loose chignon. Pin as needed. Leave a few pieces loose and weave them into tiny braids to create texture.
