Prom 2015: From Hairstyles to Fashion, Tips for a Perfect Prom

It's never too early to start planning for Prom, it's an important date that every young woman looks forward to with eager anticipation. It's so important to you for the night to be perfect and the easiest way to ensure that is to think through everything ahead of time. The earlier you start to plan, the better your chances of avoiding any unpleasant surprises and the more likely everything on your special day will turn out exactly the way you hoped it would... or even better!

Getting off to a Good Start

Planning ahead may even give you options you didn't even consider! For instance, are you aware that if you get yourself a good trim and start taking very good care of your hair at the beginning of the school year, it can easily be as much as 4 inches longer by Prom? Longer hair means many more styling options, especially if you'd like to wear an elegant updo! Check out the Ultimate Guide to Growing Long Hair to find out exactly what you should be doing, and even more importantly, shouldn't be doing to ensure your hair is stunning come the big day.

Color Trends for Spring 2015

Start thinking about your colors. Though prom dresses don't appear in shops until early spring, the top designers in Italy and France, who set the trends for seasonal colors, make their predictions the year before for the hues that will be most popular. For spring 2015 the color forecast spotlights hues at the opposite ends of the spectrum, deep earthy shades of greens and purple, as well as grey tinged deep blues and taupey browns; to the softest of pastel tones in rosaline pinks, pale yellows and silvery dove grey. Don't forget to consider your own coloring when choosing the colors you'll wear. Check out the Hair Color Chart to help you pinpoint the best colors to complement your hair color, then check out what fabulous LongLocks hair jewelry designs are currently available in these gorgeous hues!

Determine Your Style

Are you romantic? Trendy? Old fashioned? Conservative? Wonderfully wild? Elegant? Glitzy? A combination of two or more? Consider your own tastes and what you're comfortable in before you decide on a prom hair style. Remember that what's trendy isn't necessarily right for you if it doesn't truly reflect your own personality. Don't let fashion rule you, bend it to create your own unique, distinctive style. Who knows, maybe you will be the next trendsetter!

Choose Your Weapons to Coordinate with Your Style

Once you've determined your personal style find the right hair accessories to really show it off on prom night. Romantics may prefer to wear LongLocks RomanzaStix while trendy gurlz might find LongLocks FantasyStix or LuminiStix more their style. If you're an old fashioned kind of girl, dressing up your prom updo with a stunning MajeStix design would be perfect for you. The quiet girl who leans more toward the conservative end of the fashion scale would likely find GlimmerStix to her liking. Do you have a wild streak? LongLocks DragonStix will add lots of drama to your prom hairstyle. Prefer the elegant approach? LongLocks PearliStix would suit you well. And if you really want to knock 'em dead with sparkle power, LongLocks GlitterStix, SugarStix or GeishaStix will definitely help you get the job done!
