A Checklist For Your Prom Hair

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

Plan well in advance for this big event. Your Prom Hair is second only to your Prom Dress in achieving the perfect look for a perfect evening. Think about these hot tips for a stunning Prom Hairstyle.
  1. Are you planning on going to the hairdresser for your prom hairstyle? Be sure to schedule your appointment in advance. Sometimes you can save time and money by washing, applying styling aids and drying your hair at home. Your hairdresser can then use her precious time and expertise on the finish. When you call for your appointment, inquire if that is an option.

  2. Take some hair accessories with you to the salon.

    • As soon as you get your dress, visit a fabric store for ribbon of matching or complimentary color. This can be laced through curls or used to apparently tie your hairstyle up.

    • Is your dress of a romantic or Victorian style? Think about wearing pearls in your hair. You will find individual pearls in a fabric or craft store. Slide one or two on a bobby pin or hairpin. Create a number of these 'ornaments' to be inserted strategically throughout your hairstyle to accent the curls or lines. Click here for an example.
      String many pearls on a piece of thread or wire to be used to drape or wind between curls. The wire can be formed in interesting shapes.

    • For a contemporary styled gown, you may choose to use rhinestones instead. You can use nail glue to fasten them onto hairpins, bobby pins or barrettes. They are then used in the same way as the pearls.

  3. If you plan to style your hair yourself or with the help of a friend, be sure to have a few trial runs before the big day.

    • Try different ways of styling

      • Hot-rollers Click here for suggestions.

      • Wet-set - This is when you roll damp hair on rollers and dry it thoroughly before removing them. This gives a lot more body and holding power than any other type of set.Click here for tips on the use of rollers.

      • Curling iron - Try putting your hair up and then curling the ends. Using hair spray on them first will create a firmer curl. Click here for suggestions for use.

      • Flat iron or extra large curling iron. Put your hair up and then use the curling iron or flat iron to form the ends into a soft (almost straight) curve. Then let the ends stick out. The heat from the iron will shine the hair and give it a finished look. Use hair spray or wax to stiffen the ends.

    • Remember to accessorize as in Section #2.

  4. Do you have short hair?
