9 Prom Hairstyles + Makeup Looks for Redheads

Happy Prom! Let's get glammed up

Updated: September 12th, 2023

It’s prom season, and if you’re a redhead headed to prom you might need some hair and makeup inspiration. Whether you’re tackling the hair and makeup at home on your own, with friends, or headed to see a professional, make sure you scroll through these pics to get some inspo for your special night

5 Prom Hairstyles for Redheads:

1. Ponytail

Keep your red hair out of your face while you dance the night away with a stunning high ponytail. You can add lots of volume and bounce to your look and style the ends in waves or curls. Want something a little more glam? Try a half-up high pony with braids at the crown.

2. Braids

Speaking of braids, this is a cute and easy way to dress up any style. Do a braided ponytail, a full braid, or even a curled braid. It will add dimension to your hair while also keeping it out of your face.

3. Updo

The classic prom look has always been an updo, so if you want something more traditional opt for this style. You can create volume and texture or leave out your front face framing/ fringe to make it more soft and romantic

4. Curls

For the girl who likes to keep it simple, big bouncy curls are the way to go. Keep them tight or brush them out depending on how you like it. This style looks great with a middle or side part, with or without face framing, and on all hair lengths

5. Blowout

For something chic and elegant, go for a blowout. You can do a sleek straight blowout with just a little bend at the ends, a big barrel curled blowout or something more retro and feathered.

4 Prom Makeup Looks for Redheads:

1. Bold Lip

If you want to play up your lips, opt for a bold lipstick like red! It will help you stand out and look glam. Pair your red lip with simple eye makeup so it’s not too overwhelming. 

2. Sharp Liner

If you want to add some drama to your eyes, a sharp eyeliner is the way to go. Pair your sharp liner with neutrals on your lids and lips to keep the focus on the liner. 

3. Bold Eye

Another way to make your eyes pop is to do a bold eyeshadow look and keep the rest simple. Pair this with bold but natural lashes and a neutral lipstick or gloss. 

4. Natural

For a freckle-friendly look, try going natural. Highlight your key features with Finally Have Brows brow gel and redhead mascara, add a little blush and bronzer, and keep everything light, glowy, and simple.
