6 Months Until Prom: Find the Perfect Prom Dress

Countdown to Prom: Prom Hair, Makeup and Beauty TipsIt can take quite a while to find the perfect prom dress, so it makes sense to start looking early.  Try on lots of different dresses until you find the one that makes you feel really special and which suits your own unique sense of style. 

If your school has a closed Facebook page to share pictures of your prom dress, don’t forget to upload your photos!  That way you’ll avoid the awkward moment of turning up to prom to find someone else wearing the same dress as you!

Now it’s time to start thinking about the right prom hairstyle to go with your dress.  Backless and strappy dresses look lovely with curly hair tumbling down your back or to one side, while higher necklines suit beautiful prom upstyles.  

5 Months Until Prom: Book the Transport

Everyone wants to arrive at prom in style these days and there are so many options to choose from!  How about a double-decker bus, limousine, classic car or taxi?   Speak to your friends and work out a suitable budget, bearing in mind that mum and dad may well have already spent plenty of money on your prom dress, shoes and bag!   You’ll want to keep some money in the budget for your hair and beauty treatments too!

4 Months Until Prom: Book Your Prom Hair Trial

To find the perfect prom hairstyle, take a look online for inspiration.  There are lots of possible styles to choose from, including long curly prom hairstyles, glamorous prom upstyles, bohemian prom hairstyles, braided prom hairstyles to name but a few possible looks.  Once you’ve got some ideas, book in for your prom hair trial at Harmony Hair Salon in Edlesborough.

Show your stylist the pictures of your ideal prom hairstyles, as well as images of your prom dress.   We are experts at creating the best prom hairstyles in Edlesborough so we can try out a few styles to see which looks best and help you create your overall prom look. Before you leave, make sure you book your hair appointment for prom day itself.

3 Months Until Prom: Arrange Your Prom Parties

Let your parents know that these days young people often enjoy a pre-prom party, the prom, and then an after-prom party.  The pre-prom is a lovely way to get a few friends together, have a few drinks and nibbles, and take some photos to remember this special moment. 

2 Months Until Prom: Book Prom Make-Up & Spray Tan

If you are worried about looking too pale in your prom dress, you might want to consider a professional spray tan to give you a sun-kissed glow.  At Harmony Beauty Salon in Dunstable we use top quality Fake Bake Spray tan, for a gorgeous, natural looking colour.

Equally, if you don’t think your make-up skills are up to creating that special look for your big night, why not book a professional make-up trial instead?   Our trained make-up artists at Harmony can help you discover the colours and shades that are best for you and can create the perfect look to complement your prom outfit.  They’ll also advise you on the latest make-up techniques.  Take a look at online for pictures of makeup looks you’d like to try (celebrity red carpet images are always a good source of inspiration for prom!)

The Week Before Prom:  Think Hair Removal, Brows, Lashes & Nails!

It’s nearly time for prom, so now the detailed preparations start!   Here are the beauty treatments to think about this week:

Hair Removal: to make sure you are silky smooth in your gown!

Brow Shaping: Professionally shaped eyebrows frame your face and enhance your eyes – a must for the all- important photos!  Our HD Brows service at Harmony Beauty Salon in Dunstable will give you perfectly formed, celebrity-style brows.

Luscious Lashes: Everyone knows how important eyelashes are when it comes to perfecting your look and we have a range of eyelash treatments available to enhance your eyes, including LVL lashes and Russian Lashes.

Gorgeous Hands & Feet: You won’t want ragged nails to let you down on the big night and we offer a great range of high-quality manicures and pedicures at our Nail Lounge at Harmony Plus Beauty Clinic in Dunstable, including Bio Sculpture vegan and cruelty free products, and Gel Bottle Inc Nails.  

The Day Before Prom: Spray Tan 

If you are opting for a spray tan, book in one or two days before your prom as the colour will develop over several hours – you wash it off to reveal a lovely golden tan beneath!  

It’s Prom Day!Countdown to Prom: Prom Hair, Makeup and Beauty Tips

The team at Harmony Hair Salon in Edlesborough will probably be almost as excited as you are about creating your prom hairstyle!  We love to transform our clients and see them leaving the salon looking and feeling sensational!

Relax while you either do your make-up yourself or have it done professionally.  Then slip on your prom dress, shoes and grab your bag… before heading off to your pre-prom.  Make sure you take lots of photos and bring them in to Harmony as we love to see the finished effect!

We hope you have a wonderful night to remember and feel like a prom princess!
