Prom season is officially here.
The date is set and you have your dress picked out, but now what do you do about your hair and makeup? This is a special occasion and you will have pictures that mark this night as one of the best of your life. No matter what look you are hoping to achieve, there are ways to match your hair and makeup with your dress style. Here are the top three most popular styles and a few tips and tricks we’ve put together to help you achieve the perfect prom style.
Fun and Flirty:
Cute, funky and lighthearted! This looks screams that you are absolutely ready to have a good time dancing and laughing with your closest friends. After all, prom is for ending your high school career with a bang and having one last hoorah with all those who have made these years so sweet. Your dress is going to be something that is light and airy, making it easy to maneuver around. If you have a strapless dress or even a dress with tiny straps we recommend that to achieve this style you go for a tousled curl that is pulled back and at least partially up. This will be one less thing to worry about, while you are dancing the night away. To achieve a fun and flirty look we recommend a soft look with the eyes and lips. A pop of color for the eye shadow and perhaps a little glitter couldn’t hurt either! Depending on what you do with your eyes a pink or a peach lip could work beautifully and there are many options out there to match any skin tone.
Classic, sleek, and stunning! This look will have you looking absolutely flawless and ready for any picture that might be snapped throughout the night. No matter what this look will always be number one in our book because it is a look that will last through all the trends. A classic prom dress would be a full length gown that could either be full-on ballroom gown or even a form-fitted look. Hairstyles that typically go well with this look are a variety of our Paris up-dos. This is hair that has definitely been done and there is no mistake about it. These up-dos can be curly or straight, whatever your heart desires. As far as make-up, this is going to be a classic look with a neutral palette, smoky eye and a bold lip color. You can smoke out the eyes as much as you want and that bold lip doesn’t have to be red, purples and even blues have become popular this season!
Natural, beautiful and sure to get a second look! This look is guaranteed gorgeous, but with an undone appearance that seems almost effortless. Patterned dresses or loose flowing dresses with layers are perfect for this style. Braids and Beachy waves were all the rage at the Oscars this year. Everyone from Kate Winslet to Sophie Turner was rocking this carefree look on the red carpet. While this look is easy to create at home, it’s tough to give it a classy edge that will last all night. We recommend Unite’s Beach Day Spray to start you off in the right direction. The fun thing with this look is you can go in either direction with your eye makeup. You can do that smoky eye that everyone loves so much or you can do a very neutral and subtle eye shadow. The nude lip is trending right now and would be the perfect complement to this effortless style.
