6 Months To Prom: Find the Perfect Prom Dress 

prom-hair-Nottingham-LoughboroughIt can take a while to find the perfect prom dress, so it’s a good idea to start looking early.  Try on several different styles until you find the dress that makes you feel really special. 

If your school or college has a closed Facebook page to share pictures of your prom dress, don’t forget to upload your photos as soon as you buy it!  This will avoid the awkward moment of arriving at prom to find someone else wearing the same outfit as you!

Once you’ve chosen your dress, it’s time to start thinking about a prom hairstyle that will go well with it.  Strappy or backless dresses look lovely with loose, tumbling curly prom hair, while higher necklines suit glamorous prom upstyles.  

You’ll need to purchase your accessories too.  High heels look fab but don’t make them too high or you might find it hard to dance the night away!

5 Months To Prom: Book the Transport

Everyone wants to arrive at prom in style these days and there are so many transport options to choose from.  How about a classic car, limousine, camper van or even a double decker bus?   Round up your friends and work out a suitable budget, bearing in mind that your mum and dad may feel they have already spent plenty of money on your prom dress and accessories!   Make sure you keep some money in the budget for your hair and beauty treatments too!

4 Months To Prom: Book Your Prom Hair Trial at Bliss Hair Salons in Nottingham or Loughborough

Look online for pictures of your perfect prom hairstyle.  There are plenty of styles to choose from, including beautiful  prom updo hairstyles, long curly prom hairstyles, on-trend plaited prom hairstyles and vintage prom looks, to name but a few.  Once you’ve got some ideas, book a prom hair trial at your local Bliss Hair salon in Loughborough and Nottingham.

Show your stylist the pictures of your favourite prom hairstyles, as well as photos of your prom dress.  We are experts at creating the best prom hairstyles in Nottingham and Loughborough and we can try out a few styles which will complement your overall prom look.  Before you leave, make sure you book your hair appointment for prom day itself to ensure you get your ideal time-slot.

3 Months To Prom: Arrange Your Prom Parties

These days it has become traditional for young people to enjoy a pre-prom party, the prom, and then an after-prom party.  Speak to your parents now if you are hoping they will host a party for you!  The pre-prom is a lovely event where a few friends and family can get together and take some photos to remember this very special occasion and admire how glamorous you all look! 

2 Months To Prom: Book Prom Make-Up & Spray Tan

If you are worried you might look too pale in your prom dress, you could consider a professional spray tan from your local beauty salon to give you a sun-kissed glow.  Also think about your make-up skills and whether they are up to creating a special look for your big night.  If not, you might want to book in for a professional make-up trial or make-up lesson.

The Week Before Prom:  Time for Hair Removal, Brows, Lashes & Nails!

It’s nearly time for prom, so now the detailed preparations start!   To ensure you are silky smooth in your gown, you might want to book in for a waxing treatment.  A professional eyebrow shape will frame your face and enhance your eyes in the all-important photos.  Plus you might want to consider a manicure or pedicure so your hands and feet look beautiful on the big night!

The Day Before Prom: Spray Tan 

If you are opting for a spray tan, book it one or two days before your prom to allow the colour to develop properly over several hours.   

It’s Prom Day!

The team at Bliss Hair love to transform our clients for prom day and see them leaving the salon looking and feeling fantastic!  It’s time to relax and enjoy having your hair and makeup done, before heading home to put on your prom dress and enjoy your evening.

Make sure you take lots of photos and tag Bliss Hair and remember your hashtags!  We hope you have a wonderful night to remember.
