Fabulous Prom Hair: Hot Pink Flowers Adorn a Low, Messy Bun! #blackandpink #DIY

It might see premature to think about prom now.. but it’s not too early. Choosing the right dress is time-consuming. Finding the right makeup isn’t nearly as hard as finding the right hairstyle — and the right hairstylist. I have lots of breakdowns on beauty looks from various red carpet events, it’s not as easy for me to pull of hair styles because I am not a pro. However I know celebrity hairstylist Dennis Stokely who came up with this great idea for a post about prom hair and a fantastic breakdown on how to achieve

LA-Story.com Contributing Editor, celebrity hairstylist, DENNIS STOKELY, offers up his favorite hairstyle look for Prom season 2015!


Bougainvillea is a favorite flower of mine that grows wild all over Southern California. I used it as my inspiration for creating this show-stopping hairstyle that looks both dramatic and modern.



1) I used several of my favorite Bumble and bumble products to create a perfect, off-duty model, hair texture. I applied Bb “Dry Spun Finish” generously to dry hair and then sprayed a good coat of Bb “does-it-all-spray.”


2) I pulled all the hair back into a low ponytail. I teased the ponytail and added lots of Bb “Classic hairspray.”

To create the bun, I used my hands to gently wrap the hair into a big messy shape. I secured the hair with bobbie pins and then sprayed the entire hairstyle with a last coat of Bb “does-it-all-spray.”

I completed the look with a lite coating of Bb “shine-on-finishing spray.

I let the hair products sit for a few minutes and dry before finally fashioning a beautiful assortment of freshly cut, hot pink Bougainvillea! This dramatic look is set off by the black tulle gown with silver sash.

Pink and black is an all-time favorite color combination and this hairstyle and dress idea is a stunner!


Thanks to Dennis Stokey for such a great piece. The gorgeous hair in the photo shows that simplicity for prom is do-able and can be a superb statement of elegance meets gorgeous girl! While it’s possible you might try to create this, I would show a favorite stylist this photo and have them recreate the look as Dennis Stokely has broken it down!
What a stunning look!
