Match your prom hairstyle to the dress you’ll
be wearing, but ditch the glass slippers.
While every teenager is excited at the thought of prom night, it’s
also normal to be nervous about this celebrated rite of passage.
Questions abound: What dress will you wear? How will you style your
hair? What about your makeup? Will your skin break out the night
before? Will your parents embarrass you in front of your date?
Proms can also be expensive. In fact, some teens spend more on
their hair than any other wardrobe element, heading to the salon
for a Cinderella-worthy look. But even if you’re on a tight
budget, don’t fret. You can adopt a do-it-yourself approach
once you have a basic concept of what you want. Some girls are
even hosting pre-prom parties, where friends gather to help each
other with hair, makeup and nails.
So, how do you decide which hairstyle is right for you? Choose
your mood, based on the style of the dress you’ll be wearing.
(Always decide on hairstyle after you have purchased your dress.)
You can’t go wrong with a classic “little black dress,”
an ethereal sheath dress or a form-fitting, age-appropriate gown.
Avoid the Scarlett O’Hara look at all costs—even if
you live in the South.
For the “I’m a Move Star”
look, wear your hair loose, in soft, flowing curls created with
the help of hot rollers. You may want to add hair jewels or
other accessories, but keep things simple and elegant.
For the “I’m Totally Hot”
look, wear your hair straight and sleek. Use an anti-frizz gloss
or pomade. Be careful if the weather calls for rain, as any
natural curl will go into overdrive.
For the “I’m A Rock Star”
look, use gel to create spikes or twists. You can even create
a variation on the traditional updo, with twists or spikes that
For the “I’m Ready for the Red
Carpet” look, pull your hair into a high ponytail, fastened
with a jeweled barrette. You can also roll it into a French
twist, tightly secured at the back of your head.
For the “I’m Still Innocent”
look, try ringlets. Be sure your locks are tame, not messy.
Add flowers or a headband to accent your curls.
For the “I Feel Like Flirting”
look, add hair extensions to change normally short locks into
long, flowing tresses. You may also add braids or twists. Teens
with curly hair sometimes straighten or color it for prom night.
For the “I’m Moving to Paris
When I’m 18” look, try a classic French braid, adorned
with fresh baby’s breath buds.
The updo has long been the mainstay for proms and other special
occasions, and it will never go out of style. You may opt for
a classic chignon, with hair pulled into a bun at the nape of
your neck, or the Juliet knot, with all of your hair arranged
on top of your head. Whichever variation you select, make sure
it highlights your best features—gorgeous eyes, full lips
or well-defined cheekbones.
For a timeless look, simply pull hair back tightly and add some
hair gloss. A clean part—no stragglers, please!—will
frame your face. Add the right makeup, a great pair of chandelier
earrings and a delicate necklace, and you’re stylin’.
If you want to experiment with color, several products can give
you a temporary boost—but be sure to test them a few weeks
before your prom to avoid any last-minute surprises. Jazzing,
made by Clairol, is available in 18 shades, ranging from coffee
bean and jet grape to cherry cola and bold gold. Its vibrant color
(choose temporary or semi-permanent) is applied from a tube. If
you want something funkier (we’re talking magenta, orange
flame, jet black or green grass), look for Punky Colour Temp’ry
Styler, made by Jerome Russell. Apply it to dry hair for extreme
streaks. The more you use, the wilder your hair will look.
Above all, select a dress, accessories and hairstyle that make
you feel comfortable—your best “you.” If you
feel insecure about any element, it’s time to revisit your
plans. Follow your instincts: If in doubt, toss it out.
