Prom hair style tips and
night is obviously one of the most important social events in a teen's
life. It combines romance, a party atmosphere, and a sense of saying
goodbye to high school and carefree days. Everyone wants their prom
experience to come off without a hitch and become a memory they'll cherish
for the rest of their lives. For many girls, one aspect of the big night
often becomes incredibly important: which prom hair style to choose.
There's more to this decision than you might think. Prom hair styles have
to withstand a lot of activity for several hours. Imagine trying to keep a
hair style looking great while dancing, rushing around to see friends, and
then partying at all of the after-prom parties. Whew! Seen in that light,
choosing the best hair style takes more careful planning than you thought,
Formal or Functional?
Probably the biggest decision you have to make is whether to go with a
seriously formal hair style for prom, or one that is less formal but more
functional and able to handle the frenetic activity without falling apart.
It's easier for girls with short hair, of course, but they also have fewer
styling options. Teens with longer hair have more options on the formal
side, but also then have to deal with more potential problems on prom
night - especially after they've been dancing and rushing around for a
couple of hours!
So, ultimately your choice of prom hair style comes
down to your level of willingness to deal with maintaining the style all
night. For many girls, it's important enough to deal with. For others,
convenience is a higher priority. If you fall into the first group, a
formal updo is a popular hair style for prom. It's a classic look that
makes for beautiful prom pictures. If, however, you're more about the
dancing and less about the elegance, sweeping your hair back into a
ponytail is a great solution, and probably the most common choice.

Whichever direction you go, the best advice is to enlist the help of your
hair stylist! If your stylist is good and has been doing the job for more
than just a year or two, chances are he or she will have tons of great
advice about how you should style your hair for prom. The longer you've
been going to that stylist, the better, because he or she will know your
preferences and personality well enough to make appropriate suggestions.
Together, you should be able to come up with a great choice. Make it
easier by looking through magazines and web sites and cutting or printing
out pictures of the prom hair styles you like the most. Keep them in a
folder and take them with you when you visit your stylist for a consult.
A common mistake many girls make is
not planning far enough in advance. You never know what a hair style will
look like until you're sporting it. Don't get stuck with one you hate on
prom night because you ran out of time! You can easily avoid that disaster
by getting with your stylist at least a month before your prom and having
him or her try several styles. Have your mom or a friend take pictures
from several angles in each style so you can review them later and make a
good decision without feeling rushed. When prom night finally arrives,
you'll enjoy it a lot more knowing that the hair style you're wearing is
the best one for you. No surprises!
