Don’t wait until the last minute to decide how you will wear your hair for prom. Your hairstyle is an important part of your overall look and should be planned and tested. Follow these four easy steps for getting the perfect prom hair style.
Step 1: Buy or pick out the type of dress you will wear. The dress must be coordinated with your hairstyle. For example, if you have a fancy, elaborate dress, you might want to go with a simple, sophisticated hairstyle. A fancy dress combined with a fancy updo might be too much ‘fancy’.
Step 2: Search for pictures of hairstyles that you like. Find 3-4 pictures of styles that you like and make copies of them to bring to your stylist. A picture is the best way to let your stylist know exactly what style you want. Best places to search prom hairstyles are websites and women fashion and beauty magazines.
Step 3: Try it on. There are several online programs that allow you to try on a particular hairstyle. This is the fastest way to see if you like a particular hairstyle. Find programs by searching for ‘try on hairstyles’. Many of these programs will help you to upload your own photo, determine your face shape and select suitable hairstyles to try on.
Step 4: Schedule your appointment at the salon. Many salons book prom hair style appointments weeks if not months in advance. Don’t be caught without an appointment call early.
