The hottest prom hair accessories to rock this year

Let your locks dazzle on your big night by embellishing them with these gorgeous prom hair accessories.

Prom night – it’s the biggest event of the year. An evening of pure glamour, it’s your chance to look top-to-toe beautiful and flaunt your individual style, which demands a hairstyle that’s just as gorgeous as your dress.

That’s where prom hair accessories come into play, one of the hottest trends of the year to experiment with. There are so many ways to adorn your tresses – fresh blooms, simple ribbons, a dash of glitter – and each one is guaranteed to make you shine bright on prom night.

Get inspired and debate no longer about which look to rock with these styles and hair accessories for prom.


Put a glamorous twist on a classic girl-next-door look with a glitzy headband. Pull your locks into a simple twisted bun and place the accessory carefully on top. Gently loosen a few face-framing tendrils and add texture with the ghd curve® creative curl wand. Glance in the mirror and you’ll see a prom queen looking straight back at you.

Hair Pins

Pancake braids are super cute and perfect for a pretty prom night hairstyle. Rock the trend in a halo braid look and finish with elegant hair pins dotted all the way around the plait. Contrast the colour of your hair pins against your tresses for maximum impact.

Tip: The key to a pancake braid is volume – create the illusion of thick locks and make styling easier with a burst of ghd total volume foam before you blow dry.

Floral Crown

Throw it back to the decade of girl power with an edgy crimped mane. Use the ghd contour® professional crimper to create killer texture that’s bound to cause a stir on prom night. This rock goddess hairstyle looks extra beautiful paired with a gorgeous floral crown, adding a romantic touch to your locks. There’s no doubt you’ll sweep your prince charming off his feet with this perfect prom style.


Ribbons are a timeless accessory and ultra-romantic. Let one work its magic on your locks and watch your prom date’s jaw drop as you make your big entrance – all you need to do is simply wind it around a plaited bun.

Tip: Pick a coloured ribbon that will complement your gown and you’ll be the belle of the ball.

Hair clip

Be the golden girl on prom night with a set of elegant Hollywood curls. This incredible style has been making waves for decades and is guaranteed to do the same on your prom night. Pin your classic kinks behind one ear with a pair of pretty hair clips to seal your status as prom queen.

Tip: This hairstyle demands shine. Make your waves gleam with a spritz of ghd final shine spray.

Hair Rings

Hair Rings

Hair rings and straight locks are a match made in heaven for edgy stylistas. Loop them through a narrow unicorn braid and exude cool girl style – it’s the perfect way to amp up classic poker straight tresses. If you dare, take your look even further with on-trend ombre hair colouring.

Tip: Ensure a long-lasting straight style by prepping your locks before prom night with ghd straight & tame cream.

Teeny bows are a simple way to embellish your hairstyle on prom night. Show off your plaiting skills and create triple waterfall braids, woven into a mane of soft waves. Finish with these colourful accessories and together, it’ll create an elegant effect.

Floral vines aren’t just for festivals. Use this trendy accessory to embellish your locks on prom night, too. Continue the boho vibes with your hair styled into a textured wavy half updo, finished with a single plait swinging down your back.

Simply wave your hair with the ghd curve® classic wave wand, tuck one side behind your ear and rock that glitter in all its glamorous glory.

Tip: Lock this dazzling look in for the entirety of prom night with ghd final fix hairspray.

Statement Hair Piece

Updos are a prom night classic for good reason – they’re ultra-elegant, sweeping your locks up and off your neck. Add texture to your tresses with the ghd curve® soft curl tong, then pin them into a voluminous style. Finish with an eye-catching statement hair piece for bombshell prom night beauty.
