Formal Hairstyles Q/A for prom, wedding etc
could you guys possibly give me suggestions on how to do my hair for prom? my dress is long, satin in an olive/sage green and the top is sort of a halter style.

i wish i had a pic, but this was the closest thing that i could find that sort of resembled my dress:

dina except that the color of dress is a more richer, and darker olive green

i think i want to wear my hair down bc the dress makes my shouldars look narrow, but i am really at a lost of how to wear it... i have pretty thick, long asian hair... so if you guys could just give me some ideas, i would highly appreciate it!

Maybe one of those backward braids? It might be a bit more unique than an updo.
(I'll see if I can find a picture for you)

Here we are...
This page has some good pictures, as well as instructions.

By the way, the type of braid I was thinking of is called a herringbone.

Try curling your hair and putting it in a half updo.

What types of styles do you guys do for formal events such as prom or weddings? Every time I go to a family function I always try to outdo the last hair style. The past two times one of my aunts has said I look like a young cyndi lauper.

I'm going to resize the pics and show ya!

for formal events I go for simple looks, maybe with a really nice hair accessory.

I usually like just keeping it down and make it messy waves but If I have to put it up I go with a simple pompadour or slick back and have it with twist in the back and clip it with some nice hair accesories as a focal point(some sort of butterfly or dragonfly)...I keep the hair minimal usually cuz I wear my formal chandelier earrings so a intricate hair style will make my head look too busy.
