How To Choose Prom Hair Styles

The big night is finally here: Prom Night. You have the dress, the shoes, the bag, and now you have only one piece of the puzzle left, the perfect hair.  Try to choose a look that will flatter your face, dress, and personality.  If you're feeling overwhelmed, don't.  It's a lot more simple than you might think.  Just follow these few steps to know how to choose a fabulous prom hair style.

Consider your dress.
 If it is traditional, go with a more formal hairstyle.  If you have chosen to think outside of the box, make sure you find a hairstyle that will complement this funky look.  

Find some inspiration. Flip through your favorite fashion magazine, or turn on your television.  Look at what is hot in celebrity hair, and draw some inspiration from these looks.  Once you find what you're look for either rip the page out or make some notes.  This is a great step toward choosing your prom hairstyle.

Determine your face shape.  For instance, if you have a square-shaped face, you may want to consider bangs or wisps of hair to frame the face. This will help balance your sharp jaw line.  If your face is oval, this is not needed.  You can go ahead and slick your hair back for a sleek and sexy look.  There are several options to choose from.  If you're not sure what you should do, then you may want to consider consulting a stylist.

Keep your budget in mind.  If you have already emptied your purse to buy the dress, you may want to ask girlfriend or your mom to help you style your hair.  If you have some cash left, go ahead and make an appointment at your favorite salon.  Utilize your stylist's expertise and ask him for some suggestions to aid you in choosing that perfect prom hair. If you pulled a picture from the magazine, show him.  He can tell you whether this is the right look for you, or if you should go in a different direction.

Once you have your hairstyle in place, be careful.  You don't want all that hard work, and in some cases hard earned money, to go to waste.  Here is one last tip: wear a button-down shirt while your hair is being styled.  You don't want to risk destroying your carefully crafted hairdo by having to pull a shirt off over your head!  Hopefully these steps will make the road to choosing your perfect prom hair style a little less bumpy.
