Making Your Prom Hair and Dress a Complete Picture

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

Make sure your prom look is complete, head to toe, with everything working together to make a lovely picture. The perfect prom night starts with the perfect dress. Once you have that, you’ll want to select a hairstyle that accentuates the beauty of the dress. Wearing a style that does not blend with the style or ‘mood’ of the dress detracts from the overall picture.

Dramatic gowns
A sophisticated or dramatic gown will have smooth, form fitting lines. You won’t find ruffles, lace or a sheer overlay on one of these. It will come in a dramatic color - black, bright red, white (if you have dark hair), or a vivid, clear blue or green.

A dress of this style calls for a sleek sophisticated hairstyle with uncluttered lines. Opt for a sleek updo accented by a single wave, very controlled curls or even spikey strands extending from a knot or chignon.
See how to create some of these effects here.

Another great look for a dramatic strapless dress is sleek, shiny hair worn perfectly straight. Part it in a low side part, so that it drapes over one eye. The other side can be held back with a single straight barrette of rhinestones. Make sure your hair is cut to a perfect blunt edge and the ends are freshly trimmed. Create an ultra smooth finish with a flat iron and spray shine.Learn about flat irons.

Romantic gowns
These gowns are often found in softer colors. They usually have a full or softly draped skirt and may have lace, ruffles or a train. When wearing a very feminine, strapless dress, there is nothing more lovely than soft waves falling on bare shoulders. Try wearing your hair down, set in big, controlled waves.
  • Option 1:
    Smooth one side up and back, securing it high on the crown of your head. Secure it with a romantic barrette, with curved lines.
  • Option 2:
    Pull both sides up to the top, center of your head. Secure it with an attractive barrette and allow the ends to fall into soft curls.

So find a prom dress that you love and feel wonderful wearing. Then decide what ‘mood’ the dress expresses and plan your prom hair style accordingly. The effect is sure to be stunning!
