Prom hair inspiration from celebs
Red carpet-worthy locks
Casual up-do
Stars are constantly on display, flashing their megawatt smiles and debuting hairstyle after hairstyle at premieres and parties. Prom is your night to shine -- so why not take hair inspiration from your favorite A-listers?

The understated Maggie Gyllenhaal goes casual-classy with this loose, pinned-back pony. To get this look, part the front of your hair to the side and sweep back loose sections of hair, securing them with pins, before pulling all the sections together in a messy ponytail. Gyllenhaal's sophisticated fire engine-red pucker is the cherry on top of this polished look.
