Too many times females get way too involved with finding the ideal dress and shoes to go along with it as well as the finest escort. Small things can matter a lot. A horrible hairstyle will rob your costly, stylish dress of its value. Why should you take a long time putting on make up or pay money for an expensive necklace, if people can't take their eyes off your tangled up, unkempt frizzy hair? No matter what kind of hair you have, there is a prom hairstyle that is just right for you. To ensure the best look on your important day you should meet with your salon's professional stylist beforehand.

Referring to past styles is a great way to find the perfect hairstyle. Bobs first became popular in the 1920s, giving women an easy to take care of style, and a trend setting appearance, that is still here today. Or you take it to the edge. Consider looking to the starlets of the 1930's for a glamorous prom hairstyle this year. The objective is to accent a long dress by elongating your body with hair styled close to the head, like with stylized waves. To achieve this look, hair must be between chin and shoulder length with a part on the side. Long hairstyles can copy this look by braiding the hair diagonally from the side part, with the back of the hair wrapped into a braided chignon that touches the nape of the neck. In order to make waves, you have dampen your hair, put on a hair product that contains jojoba for protection against the heat, forming the waves with a diffuser of a FHI heat blow dryer and a miniature curling iron.

Maybe you would prefer a sexy, short hairstyle. You could try funky spikes or crazy twists held up with bobby pins and barettes. If your hair is too long for spikes, try twirling it into little buns and spike the ends of each one of those. With Matrix Sleek, you can achieve a natural wave by shampooing and conditioning with the product, then blow-drying with a diffuser while working a sculpting paste into your hair for volume and texture. Complete your hairstyle with Redken Quick Dry Instant Finish Spray. Frame your face by leaving a few tendrils, or pull back your bangs and hold them down with your favorite gel or hairspray. Suggestions for a short hairstyle include a London pageboy style that originated in the 1960s, which is the current runway fashion or you can bleach part of your hair and have the other parts of your hair dark to look wild like Kelly Osbourne. Extremely short Twiggy hair is supposed to be popular for prom time, with famous people like Alyssa Milano going along with the trend and the Victoria Beckham lopsided bob is still the rage. We are even seeing shaggy "fashion mullets" appearing on the scene with asymmetrical cuts. This season, the more short your hair is, the better it is, and natural accents, blonde hair coloring, as well as copper and lavish chocolates are in style. If you hate your short hair, then you might think about using hair pieces such as the Unique VIP hair extensions that are constructed of real hair. Hair extensions are even loved by Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson!

People who have long hair have more variety for hairdos, but this can also make it more harder to deliberate. Soft wavy hairdos and curled hair are in style currently. Several of the hairdos that people ask most for are the styles by the following famous entertainers: actresses Nicole Kidman, Eva Longoria, Angelina Jolie and Paris Hilton, as well as singers Jessica Simpson and Miley Cyrus. Soft and alluring curls in several layers will appear attractive whether you wear them up or down. You can make a pompadour on the top of your head like a rock singer, picking your hair with a small tooth comb and spray the remaining part of your hair to make it big and full. You could always braid your hair or wear a classy chignon. Many people, such as Emina Cunmulaj, Gwenyth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Alba, Debra Messing and Christina Aguilera have all sported a wonderful sleek straight hairstyle. Some people that plan to attend the prom are growing weary of the way they look and they might want to attach layers, highlight their hair or cut some of their hair off.

When considering your prom hairdo, most importantly, plan it way ahead of time and get an appointment. Make sure to schedule your prom hair appointment ahead of time so you won't be stuck trying to style your own hair at the last minute. If you have planned poorly, no one can save you, so call your stylist in advance and discuss your options. Do your homework. Look at how the movie stars wear their hair on the red carpet, and also go to some virtual hairstyle sites to see what you like and try them on to compliment your facial shape, features, and the dress you will be wearing. Have a good idea of what you want, whether it's a new salon hair color, hair extensions, conditioning, or just an updo styling; bringing photos from magazines is always helpful.
