5 Gorgeous Hairstyles to Try for Homecoming 2021

Homecoming will be here before you know it, and after most school dances were canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re sure you’re excited to make unforgettable memories with your friends at this year’s dance. Whether you plan on going full glam or keeping things simple this homecoming, your look won’t be complete without a fun hairstyle. From a volumized ponytail to classic loose curls, we rounded up some of our favorite homecoming hair inspiration from Instagram, below.

Sleek and Straight

Straight styles can be just as elegant as updos or curls. Tuck two front sections of your hair back for a high-fashion look. Run a smoothing serum through your hair to keep your strands straight and frizz-free while you dance the night away. We like the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum

Braided Bun

Instead of adding a hair accessory, accessorize with intricate braid work. Here, @narahairbraiding creates mesmerizing designs with her client’s hair before wrapping it into a polished bun. The swirled edges add a delicate touch to the look.

Pumped-up Pony

A little bit of volume can turn an everyday ponytail into a glamorous style for homecoming. Have your stylist hide the elastic by wrapping a piece of your hair around it for a fun, flirty look. Don’t forget to lock your hair in place with a hairspray. Our current favorite is the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray because it adds a touch of shine. 

Braids and Waves

A simple braid is an easy way to dress up any hairstyle — plus it’s super easy to do on your own. For this look, simply curl your hair, then start the braid along your temple and secure it in place with bobby pins.

Embellished Bun

Upgrade your classic coif by pinning fun barrettes in your hair. Find an accessory style that matches your homecoming dress. When in doubt, rhinestone and pearl accessories go beautifully with any dress color and style.
