15 Cute Homecoming Hairstyles For Long Hair
Homecoming is just one of those special moments in your life, and it’s a great time to make memories with your friends. I encourage you to really get into the spirit of things by getting all dolled up and taking lots of photos! I still have a photo of my friends and me at the homecoming ball framed in my bedroom and it will always remind me of such an exciting time in my life. Whether you go to the party with your sweetheart or your gal pals, homecoming is bound to be a night to remember. So swipe on a statement lippie, put on some dancing shoes, and take your pick from this crop of cute homecoming hairstyles for girls with long, lustrous locks.
1. Fishtail French Braided Bun
How sweet and romantic is this hairstyle? A combo of both French and fishtail braids twisted into a low and loose bun makes you the low-key belle of the ball!
2. Bohemian Half Fishtail
Thinking of letting your locks hang straight and loose? Make the most of your long lengths with this half-up hairdo. The fluffed-up fishtail lends a festive and boho-chic vibe to your homecoming look.
3. Criss-Cross Ponytail
Yes, a classic ponytail amped up with a teased crown and a sassy criss-cross detail may seem basic, but for me, it’s also a classic. Cute homecoming hairstyles can also include simple yet elegant looks, too. If you’re going all-out with your makeup and accessories, maybe a polished and toned-down ‘do is for you.
