With fall around the corner, homecoming is in clear view. You’re likely thinking about what you’re going to wear, what makeup look you’re going to try, and what hairstyle you should rock. From updos to long hairstyles, there are so many options when it comes to doing your hair! Here are five easy hairstyles for you to wear for homecoming 2018.


This first style is perfect if you’re looking for an edgy, modern hairstyle to wear to homecoming. You’ve likely seen this slicked-back look gracing the red carpet, worn by some of your favorite celebrities, and now you can rock it too! Here’s how to get the look:

Step 1: Straighten your locks

The first step for this look is to give yourself sleek, straight hair. Depending on your hair type, this may not be the easiest feat. To help tame any frizz you may have and protect your hair from heat damage, use the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream or L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray. Apply these before straightening your locks for smooth, sleek hair.

Step 2: Create your ponytail

Pull your hair into a high ponytail that sits at the top of your head. Make sure you keep your hair smooth and bump-free! Take a strand of hair from the bottom of your ponytail and wrap it around your hair tie to disguise it, securing it with a bobby pin.

Step 3: Use hair spray

You want to make sure your sleek ‘do stays put throughout the dance—and the after party—so spray your style with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to keep your hair in place and safe from humidity.


Who doesn’t want to channel their inner-old timey movie star? A high, volumized bun is a timeless, classy homecoming hairstyle. Follow these steps to get the look:

Step 1: Add volume to your mane

For this hairstyle, you want to add volume not just to your roots but throughout your hair. Use the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Air-Blown Texture Mist to build body in your locks. Spray it throughout your hair to add texture and volume for a blown-out look.

Step 2: Put your hair up

The trick to this look is to fake your volume. Start by pulling your hair up into a loose bun at the top of your head, making sure the rest of your hair is smooth. Then, grab pieces of your bun and pin them to your head with bobby pins to give the illusion of a thick, full bun. Make sure to keep your hair tie from showing in the middle by avoiding leaving any spaces throughout your bun. 

Step 3: Spray your style

Don’t forget to use hair spray to keep your style in place! Use the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray for an added boost of shine.


If you want to go for a romantic bohemian hairstyle, this is the ‘do for you. This wispy, whimsical hairstyle is one that is as carefree as you’re bound to be dancing the night away at homecoming.

Step 1: Add texture to your hair

For this romantic look, add some natural waves to your locks. Try using a heat free wave spray like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray for soft waves.

Step 2: Part your hair

Part your hair to the side of your choice, leaving a single wavy strand free on the opposite side.

Step 3: Braid your hair

It’s time to braid! Whether you choose to do a traditional braid or switch things up with a fishtail braid, there’s no hairstyle more romantic than braids. Keep a few strands loose to frame your face for a soft look.


Long, straight hair is a classic hairstyle that is perfect for any occasion. Rock this hairstyle at homecoming with an added twist to create an eye-catching style.

Step 1: Straighten your hair

As you may have guessed—the first step for this ‘do involves straightening your locks. Make sure to use a heat protectant before straightening to avoid damaging your hair.

Step 2: Create a twist

Part your hair in the middle and take a small section of hair from the front of one side. Begin to twist the section backward, incorporating more hair into the twist as you go. Stop above your ear and bobby pin the twist into place. Do the same on the opposite side.

Step 3: Grab your hair spray

Once again, you want to spray your hairstyle into place! Try the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold Unscented.


This last style is another way to add a romantic vibe to your locks. This is a great hairstyle if you have thin or fine hair because you’ll have all your hair on one side, giving the illusion of more hair! Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Curl your hair

As you’d expect, this look starts with curling your hair. Don’t forget to use a heat protectant before reaching for your curling iron—it’s a necessity prior to any type of heat styling. Use a large barrel curling iron to create voluminous, loose curls.

Step 2: Put your hair to one side

Sweep all of your hair to the side of your choice, parting your hair on that same side. Feel free to accessorize with a hair clip on the side opposite your part.

Step 3: Hairspray it into place

Use a volumizing hair spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold Volume, to keep your curls in place and looking full.
