With prom season rapidly approaching, many things are rushing through the minds of junior and senior girls all over the country: which dress to buy, who to go with and how to do your hair, just to name a few.

Before you schedule your hair and makeup appointments, you have to find the perfect dress. Make sure you find a dress that compliments you and your style. After finding a dress, make sure you let your date know what to wear so he can match you. If being unique is especially important to you, make sure no one else at your school has the same dress; some stores even keep records to ensure the same dress isn’t being worn to the same school’s prom. If you haven’t already picked out a dress, attached are some pictures to help you decide what style you like.

Once you have a dress, you can start scheduling makeup and hair appointments. If you are wearing a strapless dress, putting your hair down looks the best; if you are wearing a dress with a high neck line, hair up looks the best. With this is mind, make sure you look at different prom hair styles on Pinterest.

After scheduling all the hair and makeup appointments and finding that perfect dress, remember the smaller stuff: buy your tickets, shoes and bag. Make sure your prom group has dinner and picture plans. Schedule a photographer and make reservations well in advance because they get booked quickly.

Now that everything is planned, you can enjoy a great night at prom with your friends. Have fun and be safe!
