Coordinate Your Dress and Hair Style

Due to the exclusivity of the evening, most girls choose prom styles that also coordinate with their dress. If you have a dress with a low back, letting long hair drape down can be an alluring look, but if your dress has a lot of intricate details around the shoulders or neckline, an updo or elevated style would be best to avoid obscuring those details. Similarly, if you will be wearing gorgeous earrings that you want noticed, avoid a style that covers your ears.

Consider the Place

The anticipated weather of the event should also be taken into account. While most proms are indoors, if there are gardens or other places to stroll outside, you want to be prepared for potential wind.
