Believe it or not, your homecoming hairstyle can be off-the-charts elegant without spending a fortune in the salon. Like an over-frosted cake, formal ‘dos can sometimes look a little overdone. Just look at red carpet events— some of the most beautiful ‘dos are elegant in their simplicity. If you’re armed with a blowdryer, a brush, and plenty of bobby pins, you can recreate most of these hairstyles in the comfort of your own home.

When it comes to homecoming hairstyles, you don’t have to tie yourself into knots. Adding a little je ne sais quois is a lot simpler than it looks. Simply sweep all your hair off to one side, and secure with a vertical row of bobby pins at the back of your head. Then, gathering your hair in one hand, roll it back so it meets the bobby pins. Secure the roll with more bobby pins, and finish with a spritz of hairspray. C’est tout simple!
