Best night right around the corner and there is a lot left to do? Let’s break it down so that there is nothing left undone. Assuming the dress is purchased, don’t forget to try it on again two weeks before prom night. A tailor can adjust anything that might sag or bind, so no worries. Don’t forget to try the dress on with the shoes you will wear prom night, length is important as you want to stay upright. Speaking of shoes, wear those gorgeous “they say everything about me” shoes around the house days before the prom. You will be more comfortable in slightly broken-in shoes, without a doubt. The night of, spray the inside of your shoes with hairspray; this will keep your feet from sliding and make your dance moves smoother.
Schedule pedicure, manicure and hair appointment in close proximity to each other, if possible.
Allow plenty of time so there is no need to rush, thereby raising the anxiety level before lunch. Skylar, at 140 Salon and Drybar, suggests combining hair and make-up appointments at the same place, makes sense to us! Always best to take a picture of hair and make-up if you are dead set on a style, pictures convey more than words. If you are adventurous and request the stylist to be creative, prepare for the fun. Stylists love to express creativity, so sit back and be amazed. Give some consideration to adding a ﬂoral barrette or headband. Two of my favorite styles are pictured below and this prom girl added a simple headband for an out of this world unique look.
The day before prom;
1) pick up corsage
2) conﬁrm ride arrangements
3) conﬁrm dinner reservations
4) put your favorite lip gloss in the prom purse, along with a little cash or a card
5) conﬁrm nail and hair appointment time
6) conﬁrm before prom picture plans
