How to Prep for Prom: Gather Hair Inspiration

The prom countdown is on now that 2015 is looming closer, and we’ve got you covered with the next step in your prom countdown: getting hair inspiration ideas! So whether you’re a hair guru or are a towel-dry-and-go type of girl, we’ve got 4 easy ways to get inspiration so that your hairstyle will be one more thing you can check off your prom to do list.

1. Scour the web:

Websites like Seventeen Magazine and Buzzfeed have amazing tutorials like this and this, and Pinterest has a great stock of hairstyle pictures that’ll be sure to give you tons of options. So whether you use it as a guide to bring to your hairdresser or as a tutorial to DIY on prom night, they’re definitely worth looking at. You can even make a “hair inspiration” folder on your computer to save all your favorite styles.

2. Celeb stalk

Is there a celebrity that you just can’t get enough of their hairstyle? Whether it’s Ariana Grande’s infamous ponytail or Taylor Swift’s gorgeous, curly locks, you can use their look as your inspiration.

3. Start collecting magazines

Whether you’re checking out street style pictures of Blake Lively out grabbing Starbucks or are drooling over one of Vogue’s photoshoots, take time to circle, cut out, or highlight some of your favorite looks. It might be fun to make a day of it and have your girlfriends over for a hair inspo party (the more magazines, the merrier)!

4. Ask your hair stylist for inspiration

Is there anyone that knows your hair better than your hair stylist? If you go to the same hair salon on the regular, you might want to ask your hair dresser for any suggestions that he or she might have for your hairdo. More often than not, you can schedule a practice run so that they can try out different styles and make sure the one you’ve picked looks 100% like how you wanted it to.

What’s Your Prom Style?

There are thousands upon thousands of prom dress options out there, so to help  you narrow down your search, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite dresses in four prom style categories: Glam, Girly, Vixen, and Classic. Read on, see which one sounds most like you, and start shopping!

1. Glam.
You were voted “most likely to star in her own reality show.” Prom? You’re thinking more like red carpet moment. Go all out with a showstopping dress covered in beading or sequins.

3. Vixen.
You’re the lead in the school play, the president of your class, and if there’s one thing you have, it’s confidence. This year, you want to make a statement.  Look for prom dresses with crop-tops, sheer paneling, cutouts, or form-fitting silhouettes.

Your style icon? Audrey Hepburn. You’ll love the timelessness of a black dress, and want to look back on your prom photos in 10 years and still think you look amazing. Classic, simple silhouettes and neutral colors make you feel chic and sophisticated.

Ipswich High Shows off the Best Prom Dress Styles for 2015

A few weeks ago, Glitterati was lucky to participate in the Ipswich High School fashion show, where we were the finale woman’s retailer of the evening. The show, which was put on by a terrific group of senior students, from football players,to cheerleaders, and members of the honor roll, was an elegant, exciting success

A highlight of the night? Watching the students transform before our eyes into beautiful young women and handsome young men, ready for the ball (or in this case, prom). It was so exciting to see a full turn out of friends and family to support this worthy cause and have a ton of fun doing it.

Here’s a quick recap of some of our favorite Glitterati prom dress looks from the night.

Annie wore a BG Haute pink and ivory corset style mermaid dress with blush chiffon (pictured below). The bottom skirt zips off for a fun party mini dress!
