Prom queen hair: low-key or high-maintenance?

It's the battle of the teen queens! Who wins it this time for our High School Prom Match the Look battle?

Low Key

We think the low key, let loose style is perfect for a teen queen. There's a hint of mermaid and a touch of untamed wilderness we like for that all important date: the Prom. Whether you're a party princess or the queen bee, it's still good to look like you're too cool for school.

The hairstyle: Loose and relaxed is the way to go with a cheeky braid that says 'Yes, I did make an effort. As if, I wouldn't – this is the school prom –people' - or something like that. Whatever.

What the editors say: Loving the loose 'I don't care' look – there's teen attitude, heaps of sass and not a hint of angst.

High maintenance

The style: Remember when high maintenance was cool? No, neither do we! This generation is all about minim effort maximum impact. This neat bun is a winner, blending low effort with high maintenance results.

The hairstyle: So sexy, so demure! It only works with perfectly shiny, happy healthy hair. Condition is key. Simply whip your glossy hair into a tail and pin up. Want a cheat? Use L'Oréal Professionnel ProFiber to recover, recreate or revive your hair. Either follow the in-salon protocol or do a DIY version at home if you want to keep it simple.

What the editors say: You will go to the ball – and look fabulous without spending hours in prep or getting in trouble for hogging the bathroom for too long!

So who wins it? The wilderness mermaids or the high school sweethearts?
