You may have had months to prepare for Prom, but there's no such thing as planning too much! After all, this is one of the most special nights of your life, so use these helpful tips to get the look you'll feel most confident in!

  1. Vintage Vibe
    Let's start off with the hair, get a different kind of high pony with a little puff in the back for that vintage feel!

  2. Ribbon Halo Braid
    Go for an angelic look with a twist by intertwining a satin ribbon as you braid your hair to your crown. Definitely Prom Queen worthy!
  3. Luscious Waves
    Go simple but glamorous with huge soft waves that frame your face, think 50s and red lippies!

  4. Boho Prom Braid
    Go for a fun hairstyle with this boho look, think textures and some feather accents!
  5. The Shortcut
    So you have short hair, well it doesn’t mean you can’t play around with your look! Take Jennifer Lawrence’s red carpet looks that range from side swept, textured or pulled back!
  6. Floral
    If you have medium hair length, play around with curls or a short chignon,  play it out with a floral crown or a bejeweled headband or hair accessory.
  7. Short Updo
    If you still want a glam look for your short hair, try this simple updo and don’t forget the hairspray!

  8. French Braid Updo
    You can play around with this hairstyle, by the time your party is nearing the end, you can simply remove the pins and have it down, or unravel for soft waves!

  9. Au Natural
    One of the safest and best looks for prom is to keep it fresh and natural, highlighting and emphasizing your facial features.

  10. Smoky
    Get a mysterious appeal with traditional smoky eyes, but don’t take this look too dark, just enough to contour the edge of your eyes for that hooded look.

  11. Smoky with a Twist
    Not a fan of dark shades? Use silver with a touch of lavender and a bit of maroon to amp up the look.

  12. Three Glam Looks
    This link will show three classy looks that consist of high drama with ombre red lips, cat eye and nude lips, and a bronzy glow. Check out all three to know which suits you!

  14. Sunkissed Beauty
    Despite prom being a night affair, using bronzing powder to contour and shade your face will give you a warm glow, which will look amazing in photos!

  15. Brow Guidance
    We might be focusing on the eyes and lips, but paying attention to finely shaped and filled in brows will make a world of difference to your whole look!
