To get ready for the most radiant look, here are some beauty and fashion pointers to consider when you plan to dress up for prom. Although the checklist is long but spending time and energy on preparing will pay off at the prom.
1. Start with the dress:
Selecting the dress is one of the most stressful yet fun parts of the prom planning. There are several options to choose from and start looking few months in advance. Visit stores and check out the magazine for the latest fashion trends that will go along with your signature style and personality. There are tons of online prom websites with a discounted price to order your dress in advance which you can also alter if required. If you are thinking of a designer dress with a big price tag, you can rent a dress from Rent the Runway or any other company for a very less price.
2. Proper undergarments
When you dress up for prom, make sure that you get the proper undergarments which flatter your dress. You may draw a lot of negative attention to a stunning dress if your bra straps or underwear line are revealing. Choose a bra which provides full support without revealing. If you are considering wearing a backless strapless dress, there are still plenty of options. Opt for seamless underwear with a specific color that does not reveal in daylight.
3. Jewelry and other accessories
After you have nailed down the dress, it's time to add the details which will make your outfit complete. You may opt for vintage jewelry for a very low price. Make sure that you pick the accessories which accent your style but does not overpower it. Remember to pick a bag or clutch which matches your dress so that you can keep your necessities like cell phone, keys, makeup etc. If your prom happens to fall during the early spring, buy a proper shrug (or cover up) that goes along with your dress so that you look fashionable despite the chilly weather. If you are creative and ambitious, you may also opt to make your own jewelry rather than buying it from outside.
4. Right shoes:
To complement the dress, select the matching color shoes. Even if you are unable to find the exact same color, you can buy white shoes and dye then later to match your dress. If you still have problems selecting the right shoes, you may opt for a nude or black color heel since they look amazing on most of the colored dresses. Buy the shoes beforehand and wear them before the big day. This will make you more comfortable when you wear your shoes at the prom and there will be lesser chances of slipping. Consider packing a backup flat because wearing tall heels for a very long duration might hurt your feet and make you uncomfortable.
5. Decide the best hairdo
Many girls pre-book a salon for the hairdo before the prom. Still, if you want to style your hair yourself, there are tons of the online tutorial which offer free advice to create beautiful hairstyles for a different type of hairs.

There are various other styles such as side-swept or faux undercut, low bun with a flower crown, bob, ponytails, embellished messy buns etc. which you may choose depending upon the party ambiance and your mood.
