Prom Night

Updated on July 24, 2010

Tips for choosing your fabulous Prom or Homecoming Dress:

If funds are an issue, you need a head start for hunting the best deals at the best prices and it will allow more time for fittings or alterations if needed. For cheaper prom dresses, you can check thrift stores or consignment stores. Another option is to have your prom dress custom made by a seamstress. You can design and personalize your prom dress buy choosing a fabric and pattern you love. If there is a prom dress you really want but can't afford, this option will be cheaper than paying retail price for the dress made by your seamstress. No one else will have your prom dress, so roll out the red carpet, because the spotlight will be on you. When shopping for your prom dress, choose colors that compliment your skin tone, and don't forget about your makeup, prom shoes and accessories all need to be considered while choosing your prom dress. You will also want to choose a prom dress that will accentuate or cover your shape and body type, whichever you choose. If choosing a plus size prom dress and are unsure which type of dress will look best you can ask a sales associate which type of dress is best for your body type. Halter and Aline dresses flatter almost everyone. Deeper and darker colors will make you look slimmer, lighter colors reflect light and can make you look bigger. Buy the right size and if you lose weight, you can always have your prom dress altered to fit. It's harder to try and add fabric to a dress and it will change the style and design of your prom dress. You can get help at the cosmetic counters in the mall, they will help you choose the right colors for your skin tone, which you can also use to choose a color for your prom dress. After choosing a few prom dresses as options, you might forget what you liked and didn't like about each dress. Take a pic on your phone when shopping. It will help you remember details about which prom dress you liked most. If all else fails, borrow a dress and shoes. If you buy your dress early, watch your diet, salt and carbs at least 2 weeks before prom. They do make you swell and retain water.

I am E.O.G. are you?

Tips for choosing your fabulous Prom Shoes and Hairstyle:

Once you find your fab prom dress, now it's time to find fab prom shoes to match. Try on different styles until you find the perfect fit. Prom shoes can draw more or less attention to your feet, legs and the prom dress you chose. If wearing a short prom dress, choose bling high heels or strappy sandals to draw attention to your feet and legs. If your prom dress is long, choose a stiletto to make your legs look longer. If you can't match your shoes to your prom dress, you can choose dyeable prom shoes.

Tips for choosing your fabulous prom hairstyle:

If you are having your hair done by a stylist before prom, they will appreciate you choosing your prom hair style in advance, which will help guarantee happiness for you with your hair on prom night, but before you begin practicing your prom hairstyle or talking to your stylist about it, you need to find a few different prom hairstyles that you would like to wear for prom. Browse magazines and online. Once you find the right styles, you can print the pics and take them to your stylist. When choosing your prom hairstyle, keep your prom dress in mind. Choose styles that will compliment your style, personality, prom dress, and while at the same time choose styles that will also work with your length and hair texture. For example: If your hair is fine and limp, avoid choosing prom hair styles that are full, instead choose a simple prom hairstyle like a french twist, which is easy and elegant. Use rhinestone pins to add sparkle. You can practice creating the style on your own. Having a practice run will save time and energy
