It's the end of the school year, which can only mean one thing: prom season is well underway! You might already have your dress, shoes, and jewelry picked out- but what about your hair and makeup?
An important part of pulling a look together, choosing the right makeup and hairstyle can elevate your evening attire from "good" to "gorgeous"! We've already chosen some of our favorite celebrity looks to inspire you, now here's one hot off the runway of Milan Fashion Week!
A romantic hairstyle
For a special occasion like prom, an updo is a must-do! Keep things simple but elegant with a classic chignon like this one. For ultimate glamour, you may want to consider boosting your hair's shine with a semi-permanent hair color treatment like Casting Crème Gloss by L'Oréal Paris. By choosing a shade in the same tone as/1-2 tones away from your natural color, you can get all the benefits of this intensive nourishing treatment without any dramatic changes!
To create the style, distribute volume mousse throughout damp hair, focusing particularly on the roots. Use a paddle brush to dry your hair and then spritz it all over with texture spray to give the strands some "grit". Create a center part and then loosely smooth the hair back to meet at the base of your head. Secure some hair along the base of the scalp and then roll from the ends upward to create a loose diagonal French Twist. Pin the chignon in place, spray generously with strong-hold hairspray, then complete the look with an embellished hair accessory!
Makeup to match
What good is a romantic hairstyle without glamorous makeup to match? For your beauty look consider a flawless matte complexion, soft berry-stained cheeks and lips, and a classic cat eye flick to complete the look.
