Some girls make the mistake of concentrating on what they are going to wear and then sacrificing some elements including the hairstyle. A great prom look balances all the elements that you have for an overall look. This is why everything should also jive together. Otherwise, it will look like something is wrong or something is missing. Below are some tips that you should take note in preparing your hairstyle for the coming school prom.
1. Achieve an overall look
As mentioned before, everything should jive together. This means that your shoes should fit with your dress and your hair should complement the whole outfit. Remember that there are hairstyle that go well with some cuts of dresses. For instance, a turtle neck or a high halter dress will look good if your hair is in a chignon or any hairstyle that sweeps your hair away from your face.
A tube dress or those with low neckline can work well with long straight hair that is left flowing down. If you have to wear hair accessories, make sure that they are complementing to the dress that you will be wearing. Watch out for the color. Some girls who love shimmers will unknowingly put a silver hair band along with a dress with gold accents! Remember that not all shimmery stuff go together.
2. Plan for it.
Nothing can beat a hairstyle that is well-thought of and well-researched. And you don’t really have to exert so much effort. There are tons of magazines and websites that will give ideas on prom hairstyles that will look good on you. Remember to also visit the salon and ask for services. If you have the money to spare, set an appointment right away because you might ran out of slots come prom season.
3. Experiment with various hairstyles
Of course, you don’t have to cut your hair or do anything drastic about it. Keep a weekend free and ask your friends to help your choose a great hairstyle. Armed with blow driers and curling irons, create simple hairstyles and then decide what will look good on you. That way, you already know what will be good and you will be able to tell the people in the salon what kind of hairstyle you want.
If you don’t have a budget, this is all the more convenient because at least you already know how to do it and will not have hard time duplicating it when prom night comes.
