Prom Day – it’s arguably one of the most important days of your high school life. Not only is it a day of celebration that we share with friends but the day we capture memories in countless photographs. For many, planning for prom can be stressful. That’s why the team at unDONE Salon wants to help. Below are some Boise hair salon prom tips to help ensure there is no room for error when it comes to your special day:
1.) Schedule a Consultation
It’s a well-known fact that planning and paying for prom can be expensive. However, scheduling a hair consultation should not be a step to forego. Planning your perfect look requires not only thought and creativity but also realistic expectations. During this appointment, you will discuss your personal style, prom dress, and what you plan on doing with your hair, makeup, and nails. To help your stylist provide you with the best possible recommendations, don’t forget to bring in pictures of different hairstyles you might have in mind and anything else you plan on wearing.
2.) Pre-Book Your Appointments
It’s also essential to schedule any appointments to ensure your stylist can get you in and have time to work on your hair, skin, or nails without being rushed. Often, the upcoming prom season can fill up our appointment books fast. Not only that, but by booking your appointments in advance, you will ensure the time of the services and treatments you need:
Hair Color – Avoid any radical hair color changes within a few months of prom day. Our stylists also recommend touching up your color within four weeks of prom but no closer than two weeks.
Haircut – If you plan to have your hair on the longer side, avoid snipping, but make sure you keep your ends healthy with regular trims. Also, it’s important to schedule your final haircut alongside your hair color appointment to ensure any trims aren’t too fresh.
Nails – Our manicure technician recommends saving this appointment for one or two days before prom day to prevent any chips. Having your nails done can also be a great moment to breathe and relax before the rush.
3.) Schedule a Trial Close to the Big Day
Booking your trial months in advance can be a big mistake. While we take pictures and notes of the look you want, a lot can change in the months leading up to the main event. Our stylists recommend scheduling a trial a few weeks before prom day to allow for enough time between appointments.
4.) Bring All Your Accessories to the Trial
Last but not least, it’s essential to bring your prom accessories (earrings, necklace, etc.) to your trial appointment. This is crucial because your stylist will need to visualize everything as a whole while providing you with a preview of the end result. While a prom dress isn’t a necessary item to bring, everything from the chest upwards is very helpful in creating the final concept as close as possible.
