The hottest makeup and hairstyle trends

Having braids in your hair is a popular choice, and there are plenty of ways to style them, whether your hair is long or short.

You could have it all up or down, in a messy bun, or to the side.

If you can’t decide you could go for a half updo with a soft curl.

Have a browse at different prom hairstyles and see what you’d like.

As for makeup, you could go all out with a smokey eye and glitter, or have more of a natural look.

If you’re wanting to do your hair and makeup yourself, consider using some good setting sprays so it all stays intact throughout the event.

👠 Step 8

Spray tan and Nails for Prom

The average price for a professional spray tan is £25 to £35, and it’s best to book this in about two days before your Prom to ensure it’s freshly done and looking its best.

Nails are about £25 to £30, depending on how extra you want to be!

Alternatively, there are plenty of high street tanning applications and nail kits you can buy if you’re confident doing it yourself.
