Finding the perfect hair for prom can be a fun, but sometimes overwhelming challenge. Here are some tips for making sure your prom hairstyle is as perfect as your prom night!
1. Does your hair hold curl from a hot iron?
It’s ok if it eventually falls out when you do it, a pro will have the right arsenal of products to keep your look lasting long into dancing. If it never holds curl, opt for styles that are swept up or work with straight or wavy textures.
2. What’s weather going to be around prom?
Hot and humid? Cool and dry? Some combination of these? If you know your hair likes to frizz, choosing a super sleek style when there’s an 80% chance of rain may not make for happy hair throughout the night.
3. What is the neckline of your dress?
Wearing a fierce strapless gown and your hair up may make you feel too bare and a half up style could be more comfortable. If your dress has beading or embellishments on a higher neckline (like a halter) wearing your hair down or half up could result in snarls and tangles to your hair and dress.
4. What makes you comfortable?
Some may be comfortable with some hair left loose around the face while others shine in sleeked back styles. Being confident makes your night more enjoyable and lets you enjoy the night dancing with friends and not fussing with loose strands.
5. Have your heart set on a fun hair accessory?
Make sure the style you pick has room for it! Fun flower clips, sparkly headbands or fun hairpins are all trendy options.
