Braided hairstyles for prom are one of the most popular styles because of their comfort and versatility. When you are spending the entire night dancing and working up a sweat, hair can go from being a decoration to a downright annoyance. Some girls do not like to wear updos because they feel too formal, but a braid is the perfect way to keep your hair off your neck while still maintaining that fun, easygoing look. One of the most popular braided hairstyles for prom right now is the fishtail braid. To master this look, separate your hair into two sections. Hold the right section of hair with your hand, then pick up a small chunk of hair from outside of the left section and cross it over to the inside of the right. Repeat on the other side and continue adding sections until you reach the ends, securing with an elastic. For more in-depth instruction, check out this easy tutorial to master the fishtail braid
