You’ve found the perfect prom dress, booked your limo, and now let our expert Eleanor Gonzales tell you about the perfect prom night hair! Whether it be updo, halfdo, or wearing your hair down, the hottest trend this season is braids. This just also happens to be what I do best! I think to determine whether you’re looking for updo, halfdo, or leaving your hair down, ultimately depends on the style of the dress you’re going to be wearing. To list some examples, open back dresses look best with updos so you are able to show the cut of your dress. Strapless dresses with sweethart neckline are complimented best with a half updo, or leaving down with curls. No matter the look you do, adding a braid always gives that extra OOMF. It’s the perfect way to spice up the typical hair style. There’s so many types to choose from, waterfall braids, french braids, fishtail braids, the list goes on and on. It’s a great way to play around with a variety of hair styles, and get glamorous fast. For hot summer days, where you just feel like you can’t beat the heat and it helps to tame that frizzy look. It evens work well for casual, everyday looks. To accentuate the look, you can even add in flowers, tiny jewels, or sparkly beads to add a doze of dazzle. This looks great for weddings, bridal showers, and other special occasions. There’s so many options available, but creativity is all up to you!

TIPS FOR CURLS
As summer is approaching, natural curly hair styles are a “go to” for most women. Wearable curly hair must be defined and as frizz free as can be. Hydration is key to all things curly! Try Dual Senses Rich Repair Shampoo and Conditioner by Goldwell.
As far as styling products go, you must ask yourself what look you want to achieve.
The Bouncy Soft Look can be achieved by applying Be Curly curl enhancing lotion (Aveda) to wet hair, followed by Glamour Whip mousse (Goldwell) for medium hold and extra shine. For best results diffuse throughout.
The Beach Look can be achieved by applying K Spray A Porter (Kerastase) to wet hair, or to already dried hair that needs extra texture can be air dried or lightly diffused.
-All looks can be completed with Big Finish hair spray (Goldwell) for extra hold and/or Diamond Gloss shine spray (Goldwell) for maximum shine.
For best results use the scrunching technique (making sure not to run fingers through hair) when applying product to wet hair, this will help keep your curls intact.
Remember to experiment with different products and have fun!
