Prom Perfect Hair in Three Easy Steps
By Roy on 9 June 2009
When planning your prom look it's not just your shoes and dress that need to be chosen carefully, but your prom hairstyle is also a huge factor to consider. No prom look is complete without a perfect hairstyle which complements your dress and brings your look together.
So, to make sure that you find a prom hairstyle that is absolutely perfect and will add the finishing touch to your prom night, THS has put together everything you'll need to know for getting a perfect prom hairstyle in 3 easy steps.
Step 1: Find Your Prom Style
You may have to do some running around for your prom dress and shoes, but luckily, finding your prom hairstyle is going to be really easy. All you have to do is log into your account (or register if you haven't already) and try on a prom hairstyle or two with your photo so that you can see first hand what kind of style is going to suit your face shape and hair texture and elasticity. You can then print out your chosen hairstyles and take them to your hairstylist!
Step 2: Have A Pre-Prom Consultation
Once you've got your picture, make an appointment to have a consultation with your stylist to talk about the prom hairstyle that you want, whether it will work with your dress and accessories and how long it will take to style. You can then schedule other appointments, such as makeup and nails, so that they won't run into each other. Don't forget to ask your stylist if you will need to have super-clean hair or hair that was last washed the day before- that way you can ensure that your hair will be easier to style.
Step 3: Look After Your Hair
If you want super-shiny and healthy looking hair for your prom, start a strict hair care routine as soon as possible (see for example "Hair Care Resolutions Too Easy and Simple to Ignore"). Try an intense reconstructing salon treatment once or twice a week to help your hair get into top condition. This will also make your strands easier to manage and will give your hair a great natural shine. It's also a good idea to use a leave-in moisturizer after every shampoo and condition. This will protect your hair from things like the sun and salt water and also make it stronger so your strands will be better prepared to handle day-to-day styling.
