Prom is right around the corner! April 28th, 2018 at 8PM is the “Journey to Neverland” themed prom in Westminster. No idea what to wear, how to style your hair, or do your makeup? I have a few tips in mind that will help you achieve your desired look.

To begin, if you aren’t wanting to spend a lot of money on a prom dress, there are multiple different options:

-Buy from a consignment store like Plato’s Closet. All of the dresses are used, (probably worn once), but are half the price of a brand new dress.

-Try using online apps like the marketplace on Facebook, and Poshmark. On these platforms, dresses are sold from people in, or surrounding your local area. Most of the dresses are used, but once in a while there will be a few brand new ones.


If you have a high neckline dress:

Try an updo!

If you have a halter dress:

Try a braid to the side!

If you have a V-Neck Dress:

Try loose beachy waves!

If you have a Mermaid dress:

Try Side-swept waves, or big curls

If you have a strappy dress:

Try a swept-back updo


If you aren’t sure how to do these different makeup looks yourself, you can book an appointment at Ulta or SephoraYoutube is also a very helpful tool, in which someone could guide you through a step-by-step tutorial.
