How to Style Your Hair for a Wedding, Prom, or Other Special Event

Pick a haircut that complements the form of your face and your hair: Consult a stylist if you're unsure.

The day before the event, wash and condition your hair to keep it moisturized and manageable.

Before utilizing any heat styling products, spray your hair with a heat protectant to help prevent hair damage.

For a loose, voluminous effect while curling your hair, use large barrel curling irons.

To prevent frizz when straightening your hair, use a flat iron with ceramic plates.

Tease your hair at the roots to add volume, or use a volumizing mousse.

Use a shine serum or hairspray to give yourself a sleek, polished appearance.

If you choose to wear one, position it carefully to frame your face and highlight your haircut.

Apply a small mist of hairspray to seal in your style.

The most essential thing is to enjoy yourself and try out many hairstyles until you find one that you love and that gives you confidence.
