For homecoming or other formal occasions, it would be a good idea to tease your hair at the crown to create a height. You should also sweep your bangs to the sides.
A side part or a zigzag part goes well with this hairstyle. Make sure that you don't tie your hair very tight. It looks best if the tresses are loosely pulled at the nape of the neck and gathered on one of the shoulders. If your hair is straight, then you could use a curling iron to create some nice waves or ringlets.
Make sure that you use an anti-frizz serum to get rid of flyaway hair. You can even twist the gather hair into an elegant updo. Use jeweled clasps, holders, or bobby pins to spice up your look.
