Traditionally prom night is all about sweeping romantic dresses and hair swept up in a soft but sophisticated manner but this is the modern world and prom has to keep up with today's trends. There are no set rules about a style of dress or hair that is appropriate for prom but feeling glamorous and totally gorgeous is all part of prom.

If your prom has a theme then keep in mind the theme when picking a dress, a short dress wouldn't really suit the theme of old Hollywood for example so be guided by your theme if you have one. Do some research and find a photo or image that inspires how you want to look on your prom evening. Pick a dress in a colour to suit your skin tone and style to suit your body shape and be guided by a good friend's advice. Match your dress with shoes and accessories that compliment the look and style you are trying to achieve.

Hair is an essential part of your look and keeping in mind the original image you wanted to achieve, be inspired by how the hair is a part of the overall look. If you have a sassy shorter dress which is more modern in feel then for long hair windswept, textured and worn partially up can work really well. Curling your hair loosely and tying a loose pony tail to one side, letting a few curls on the front of your hairline frame your face will look stylised but flirty and feminine. Shorter hair could again be curled loosely but with a hair band or sparkly pins holding it partially back for a contrast between the sleek and the curly.

Traditional styles of dresses lead to a more traditional hair style which for prom means an up do but this doesn't have to mean boring. Top knots are a simple straightened hair tied up in a high pony with hair wrapped around and pinned but there can be any number of ways to decorate and enhance this look. Partially crimping will make the style unusual, partially braided will have the same effect and leaving a few pieces of straightened hair flicking out will give it a touch of texture.

A twisted bun is easy to achieve with medium to long length hair. Taking the middle four inch or your hair, pulling backwards and twisting till the hair is able to be tied at the base of your head including the rest of your hair pulled back straight. Then work the rest of the hair into a twist and fix with bobby pins leaving some pieces flicking outwards to add more texture this should achieve an elegant look with minimal effort.
The trick is to experiment with your friends before prom and get your hair straighteners, curlers and hairspray out and try to create the perfect style to suit you.
