Prom Hair 2012...How to Style without over Styling
One of the most important accessories for prom 2012 is to have fabulous hair. The typical updo with a gallon of hairspray and tight curls is out. Instead, more natural, shiny, and romantic locks are all the rage for prom 2012. This season's bright and embellished prom dresses are giving hair stylists simple yet ladylike ideas. The hair style is supposed to enhance the dress, not overpower it.
Girls with longer lengths are leaving hair mostly down with minor touches like a side swept bang and large flowing curls. The half-up half-down look also appears to be a growing trend. Those with shorter hair and bobs are cutting on angles to frame the shape of the face in a flattering yet edgy way. Of course, the more formal looking updo is always a favorite. If trying to emphasize jewelry and make-up, the updo is a great option because it keeps hair off of the face and neckline.
For girls not wearing excessive jewelry or loud dresses, hair accessories are an easy and affordable way to make a simple DIY style special. Using a floral head scarf wrapped around like a headband or mini clips adorned with jewels can add fun to any simple style. A large flower pinned to a clip gives a vintage or romantic look that will last the entire evening.
The most important part of prom 2012 hair is how to prepare, maintain, and not cause any damage. Many stylists suggest not washing hair the day of because it is easier to style. Avoid using heavy conditioners the day before if wearing flowing curls as the conditioner will weigh hair down. Most stylists have shine sprays that will keep hair looking brilliant in photos. Maintain your look all evening and keep a mini can of hairspray along with elastics, bobby pins, and an emergency hair accessory if all else fails! Remember to be kind to your hair the following day and use a clarifying shampoo and deep conditioner to replenish softness. Using these ideas and tips will make every girls' prom a most memorable event!
