To our fellow seniors, here are some dos and don'ts for prom:
1. DO buy your dress way in advance.
You want to be prepared months in advance for when your prom comes. Plus you do not want the same dress as anyone or a last-minute dress that you do not like, so make sure you check your class prom dress Instagram.
2. DO bring comfy shoes.
Your feet will thank me later. Although those five-inch stilettos look great for pictures, they will not feel nice by the end of the night from all the dancing you’ll be doing.
3. DO takes tons of pictures.
You want your prom night to last forever, and these pictures will be a great reminder. You want those memories of your friends and you in high school to stick with you.
4. DO go glam.
Prom is your time to shine, so go to town. If you’re planning on doing your hair or makeup by yourself, try it out a few times in advance to practice. YouTube and Pinterest are great for tutorials and ideas for hairstyles and makeup ideas.
5. DO have an after-prom plan
It does not have to be too crazy, but make it a memorable night and have fun.
And the don'ts....
1. DON’T try something new the day before.
That includes tanning, haircuts and colors, facials, or anything that could give your skin a reaction. I know some of us want to try a new hair color for prom or want that golden tan, but we recommend not trying anything right before prom day because it can be difficult to recover from a bad tan or hair coloring.
2. DON’T freak out if someone has the same dress as you.
Prom is about having fun with your friends, dressing up for YOU. If someone has the same dress as you, it's truly not the end of the world. #girlpower
3. DON'T over do your makeup.
Remember less is better, you don't want to have that awful flashback in all your pictures. You want to enhance your beauty, not change it.
4. DON'T buy an uncomfortable prom dress.
You’re going to be wearing this dress most of the night, meaning you´ll be eating and dancing in it. Avoid dresses that are too tight or that have too much beading that can irritate your skin.
5. DON´T do drugs or drink alcohol.
You don't need to be high or intoxicated to have a good time. You also don't want to ruin one of your most memorable nights of high school. No one wants to remember the time they got in trouble!
