  4. Plan Hair, Makeup, and Nails. You can go the do-it-yourself (DIY) route or hire professionals to polish your prom look (if your prom budget allows). Since many local stylists get booked up fast on prom day, you want to call and schedule your pampering well in advance. Before your appointment, decide on your hairstyle and color palette for makeup and nails. For DIY-ers, practice, practice, practice before prom day arrives.

  5. Get into a Healthy Routine. You want to look and feel your best on prom night, so it’s a great idea to start caring for yourself well before prom. Your healthy prom prep might include a skin care regimen, getting plenty of rest, or taking part in a daily fitness routine. Choose whatever makes you feel healthy and happy so you can enjoy prom night to the fullest! For detailed tips on skin care or developing healthy routines, the Prom Guide has it covered.
