Prom night is one that you’ll remember for a lifetime! It is one of the final events of your high school career and a chance to dance the night away with your closest friends.
Prom is also the perfect opportunity to look and feel totally glamorous.
It’s never too early to start thinking about your prom plan. Many girls spend weeks and even months curating the perfect look for them so that they ooze confidence the night of prom.
If you are wondering how to get ready for prom, then this is the article for you. We’ll be covering what you need to prepare for- head to toe!
The most important part of prom night? Choosing the perfect prom dress.
Once you start searching for a prom dress, you will quickly realize there are thousands upon thousands of options! A great starting point is to choose a silhouette that is flattering for your body type and searching exclusively for that style.
It is also helpful to select a color in advance that is flattering to your skin tone and makes your best features stand out. This will save you time when searching and you won’t get overwhelmed.

Once your dress is selected, it’s time to start planning your hairstyle.
Do you want long Hollywood glam curls? An intricate updo? You decide!
Choosing a hairstyle based on the neckline of your dress is a great way to ensure that you choose a hairstyle that you love. If you are planning on getting your hair professionally done, make sure to book far in advance. Prom is an extremely busy time of year for hair stylists so you’ll want to snag an appointment as early as possible!
The other step is to plan out your makeup in advance. Most girls want a little extra glam on prom night, so if you’re planning on doing your makeup yourself be sure to practice in advance and stock up on the products you’ll need.
Following a guide on YouTube is a great way to get a professional look for an affordable price.
Also, don’t forget the setting spray so you can keep your gorgeous look all night long!
Dress? Check! Hair and makeup? Check!
Accessories can really elevate your entire prom look. Some tips to remember are to “match hardware” when it comes to jewelry. This means selecting the same metal type for all of your jewelry. If you have silver earrings, you’ll probably want to stick with a silver necklace and bracelet for a sophisticated and clean look. This goes for any hair accessories and even the metal on your purse!
Your jewelry and bag add that little bit of sparkle that really just makes your entire look shine.
Nope- we didn’t forget! Your shoes are one of the most important parts of your outfit.
Many girls opt for high heels on their prom night, but don’t feel that you have to if it isn’t comfortable. After all, you’ll be standing for several hours and dancing into the night.
Nowadays there are elevated sandals and even slippers so that you can feel comfortable as well as stylish throughout the entire evening.
If you really want to go with the high heels, consider packing a pair of shiny flip flops in your bag as a back-up in case you start to get blisters in the evening. Trust us, your feet will thank you.
