Graduation is coming soon and you already got your outfit and of course your cap and gown. There's only a few finishing touches you have to make before your big day. You're most likely going to be wearing the cap all day...outdoors...taking pictures...during the ceremony...and then even more pictures after. To avoid the dreadful hat hair, plan your hairstyle ahead of time. We pinned some awesome hairstyle suggestions that are cap-friendly to our "Prom Hairstyles" Pinterest board (because they're perfect for prom, too!) that you can check out, with our favorites below. They're simple hairstyles than anyone can do on their own and that are also sure to last you all day. Check them out below!
If the actual event is indoors, then you have many options. If you're thinking of letting your hair down, give your hair some body and waves like the examples below. If you're worried about the cap not being able to stay on your head, make sure you bring extra bobby pins to secure the cap in place. Your hair blown out for an outdoor ceremony wouldn't be able to handle the humidity. Natural waves are your best friend. Using hot tools or just hair product can get you that look!
Braid it up!
When it comes to avoiding hat hair, braids are ideal. Whether you go with the milkmaid style...french...fishtail...or side braid, your hair will stay put all day. Take pictures without worries! Don't know how to braid? Easy! There's plenty of YouTube videos demonstrating how to braid the perfect fishtail..french...you name it you'll find it!
Here's one YouTube how-to that we love:
For a sleeker look, a half up half down style is another perfect do for graduation. The best part is that it's super simple. You just pull the top section of your hair into a small ponytail and secure it with a hairband or bobby pins. You can even style the ends of your hair into wavy locks or soft curls with a little bit of hairspray to keep it from loosing its shape. You'll be camera-ready all day!
However you decide to style your hair for graduation, we're sure you'll look super chic! If you're still looking for your perfect graduation dress, it's definitely not too late, either. So, get your grad look ready and be ready to take lots and lots of photos!
