Nicole Scherzinger offers a classic example of a sexy long prom hair style which is easy to re-create at home or with the help of a hair pro.
The famous front lady for the amazing Pussycat Dolls sizzled on Season 10 of Dancing With The Stars (DWTS). She showcased her gorgeous raven black hair spun into a range of sassy, sensual long hair styles as she danced her way to win the competition.
She also wowed fans in December of 2009 and 2010 with her long lush hairstyles as a celebrity judge on NBC's reality TV show, The Sing-Off.
Enhance Your Length With Semi, Perm or Clip-in Hair Extensions
Celebrity Hairstylist Robert Hallowell has worked with Nicole when she appeared on NBC's "The Sing Off". He reported her gorgeous hair is "100% hers." Although she had her own on-set stylist for the 2010 Sing-Off series, Robert noted that her hair looked as gorgeous as ever.
If your hair isn't as long as Nicole's you can easily supplement with perm, semi-perm or clip-in hair extensions. There's no reason why you couldn't extend your own length to achieve lush long sensual tresses.
Instead of committing to a full head of hair extensions applications, you also have the option to simply enhance a particular style or color with a modest number of extension strands which are strategically placed throughout.
Barely There Waves Works With An Ornate Gown
Wearing your hair down and cascading off a center or side part with barely-there waves will look gorgeous without drawing attention away from any ornate gown.
When you slide into a Prom gown embellished with shimmering sequins, beads or other bling, it's always best to downplay your hair.
Nicole's long seductive hairstyle is a perfect match for her ornate white gown, If you want to jazz up your hair a bit, do as Nicole did and add a medium sized flower over one ear to contrast your hair and complement your gown.
Steal Nicole's Sexy Long Prom Hair Style
This style is best for hair which is naturally straight or has light natural waves and/or loose curls.
Follow the steps below to re-create Nicole's gorgeous hairstyle.
1. Cleanse your hair according to your normal routine (Diluted Shampoo, Water Only, Conditioner Only). For added fullness use a volumizing shampoo. 2. Rinse well and apply rinse-out conditioner appropriate to your hair length, type, texture and condition. 3. Finish with a cool or cold water rinse. 4. Towel blot to remove excess moisture. 5. Apply styling cocktail including a volumizing product to pump up roots. If your hair tends to frizz include an anti-defrisant product to the cocktail. Detangle from ends to roots. 6. Create desired part with tail comb and separate hair into 2 inch sections. Work around the head using a boar bristle round brush in combination with a blow drier with a concentrator nozzle. Once each strand is dry, roll into barrel curl with your fingers and pin against the scalp. Note: To add volume to the roots, pull each strand up with your fingers and direct air flow from the ends to the roots. This will build in more fullness.
8. When hair is completely cool, right before leaving the house, unpin the barrel curls one at a time. Bend over at the waist and shake curls loose. Arrange with your finger. Gently tug the new curls to loosen slightly. Touch up any sections with a large barrel curling iron. 9. Finish with a shine enhancing hairspray. Add an optional flower.
Instead of pinning hair into barrel curls you can get a more defined curl by using hot rollers. Remember the larger the roller, the larger the curl. The smaller the curler, the tighter the finished ringlet. With hot rollers, size definitely matters.
Always experiment with your Prom hair look at least two times before your actual Prom night.
One of the great advantages of long hair is how it can be easily dressed up to the max or worn in a more relaxed, sultry style dressed up with waves and gentle ringlets like Nicole Scherzinger showcased on Season 10 of Dancing With The Starts (DWTS).
Nicole also showed off some amazing long loose sexy waves and curls when she was dancing with The Dolls and for her various judging gigs on The Sing-Off.
Nothing looks sexier than swinging long loose waves and curls as you sway with your favorite guy at Prom.
