Find the Perfect Prom Hairstyle

by Janice Johnson

Getting ready for the prom can be one of the most nerve-wracking experiences for any young woman. There are so many tiny details... the dress, the jewelry, the purse, makeup and oh don't forget one of the most important aspects of prom is hair.

Finding the perfect hairstyle is not as difficult as it may seem to some. You just need to consider what it is you want and what suits you best. Before you embark on a new prom hairstyle, you should consider these things: Your Hair Texture and Hair Length - You must consider the texture and thickness of your hair. If you have long hair it's much easier to put in an updo hairstyle than short coarse hair.

Although short coarse hair can be made into an updo style with tight twists that cascade upwards on the head then with the addition of some extensions or a hair piece for added length, can make for the perfect updo hairstye.

Now that extensions are so popular, anything goes. Consider Jessica Simpson and her $20,000 hair extensions. Although you don't have to spend that much for a similar look as Jessica, it is very feasible to do on a limited budget. Your Face Shape - Collect lots of formal hair style pictures. It's especially good to find pictures of celebrities with the same face shape as you. What looks good on them may easily look just as good on you. While making your collection of prom hair style pictures, you want to be sure to consider the shape of your face as well as the length of your hair. But don't do all of this along.

A professional hairstylist can help you choose the right style. Show your stylist at least 3 pictures of what you like and they will most likely be able to make it a style suited just for you. But don't forget to also consider the style of dress you will be wearing to prom. The style of your dress and your hairstyle can make a huge impact in your overall look.
