Deciding on the Perfect Hairstyle
Now that you’ve got the main piece of your look down, consider building the rest of your ensemble around it. Will your hair be long or short? Straight or curly? Up or down? Start to think about it for too long, and it can seem just as overwhelming as picking out your dress.
There’s no need to worry though, with these helpful guidelines to keep in mind. If your outfit has a high neckline, consider wearing your hair up. This way, you don’t detract from the neckline of your garment. Next, consider the volume of our outfit. If you’ve got a large or poofy skirt, create some contrast with your hair and go for a slicked back look.
Another option is to look at what your favorite celebrities and models are rocking and create a look based on their style. Make sure to practice doing your hair before the big night and you’re sure to walk away looking excellent.
Jazz It Up with Jewelry
Finally, put it all together with finishing touches that count. If you have a bold or patterned dress, keep accessories classic so they don’t take away from the grandeur of your outfit.On the flip side, that means it’s a good idea to spice up a more traditional look with loud jewelry and accessories. After all, accessories are the perfect way to make an outfit more personalized.
All in all, you’re sure to look stunning at your prom if you rock what you wear with confidence. And don’t forget to take plenty of pictures!
