Prom Night is one of the biggest days in a high school student’s life. It signifies that they are growing up and ready to enter society. Many girls dream about this night and plan it weeks in advance. If you have your prom this year, here are some tips on how you can ensure you become the perfect prom princess.
When girls think about their prom night, most of them think about the dress. Getting the perfect dress will make you feel confident and look like a million dollars. It is best to look at magazines or websites such as Pinterest for some basic ideas of the style and colors you like to narrow down your choices as the range available is vast.
Once you have some ideas, print off pictures, draw sketches or jot down notes and take them to a reputable prom dress specialist store such as Terry Costa in Dallas. When you are in the store, you can try on the style of dress you like and see if it suits you. If you are struggling to choose a dress, ask a shop assistant for advice or take a friend or family member who will give you an honest opinion.
You may want to get a dress in your favorite color, and if this color suits you, it is probably a good idea to settle on this, rather than being overwhelmed with the massive choice of colors available. Ask the person with you for some advice on what colors complement your skin tone and hair color. You want to look radiant and not washed out.
A dress style is probably the most crucial decision as one dress will look completely different on several different body shapes. Show off your best features – if you have great legs, go for a short skirt. If you are tall, you will be able to carry off and long-fitted or mermaid style dress. Curvy girls look amazing in dresses with a cold shoulder or sweetheart neckline and A-line skirt.
A clutch bag is a traditional accessory for prom night. Choose one that tones in with the colors on your dress and ensure it is large enough to carry essentials such as tickets, phone, money, ID, keys, and make-up, but not so big that it becomes a burden to carry around all night.
Shoes should be comfortable enough to dance in, so do not opt for sky-scraper heels if you are used to wearing flats. A low heel will be sufficient to give you some height and glamour without the risk of falling over.
Hair and Make-up
If you are used to styling your own hair and doing your make-up, you can do it yourself, but if you are less experienced or want an extra treat, book a professional to do it for you. Try out some hairstyles before the big night, so you know what you want.
Similarly, have a trial run of your make-up look to ensure you will be happy on the big night. Make-up should tone in with the color of your dress and enhance your features rather than mask them. Choose long-wearing make-up that will last through the duration of the night and will not sweat off after one dance. Keep some powder and lipstick in your purse for touch-ups.
