Prom Hair Styles… Cool special occasion hairstyle tips for glam prom hair
My daughter’s school dance is coming up and I want to help her find a pretty prom hairstyle that’s glamorous, yet still youthful.
She loves Hollywood red carpet hairstyles, but I’m afraid that she is too young to pull off something overly sexy, although her favorite expression appears to be, “that’s hot!”
Can you help us find the latest prom hair styles? (Naples, FL)
While most girls these days love to copy the red carpet hairstyles of celebrities or of models for their prom, they are still young and a certain amount common sense applies to tone down grown-up glamour into a teen style that’s fresh, modern, hip, and dressed-up.
Nothing is more awkward than to see a teenage or ‘tween girl dolled up like a painted munchkin or tiny tart. Take the essence of Hollywood glamour and soften it a trifle to celebrate one’s youth– girlhood is something that you only have once, so celebrate it!
The hair stylist’s at Sexy Hair Concepts have created four top hair styles that are pretty enough to make any girl stand out at her prom or special occasion and we have some great tips to share to help you get the look at-home.
