Not Leaving Prom Behind

As school has come to a close and everyone is avidly planning parties, roadtrips, and sleepovers for the summer, I, along with the rest of my graduating class, were  excitedly looking forward to our prom!

And just as quickly as the anticipation time flew by, so did the night itself, which of course, is quite saddening.

However, I wanted to give you ladies a way to remember your prom (whether just passed, from several years ago, or in the future) throughout the summer with these hairstyles!

At my own prom, I saw a variety of styles that defied the stereotypical prom hair. All I kept thinking was that these would be great styles for the summer on a night out or a way to make your overall look complete!

Instead of doing the traditional bun, curl your hair first. It’ll give your hair more texture and volume. When putting it back into the bun, keep your grip loose so that the hair at the front falls naturally around your face. Leaving out a curly strand is super cute as well!

This is me at prom, and although this is a complete act of narcissism, I thought it was appropriate for this page. This messy braid is the go-to summer hair look for this season and adding flowers with loose strands make for the perfect one.

My friend Shelley definitely put a twist to the stereotypical prom hair with her look. What I like about this one is that wearing your hair to a dinner or drinks just like this works with any look. Of course messing it up, easing up on the curls, and letting them sit naturally do the same justice.

Hoping everyone’s summer is going great – which look was your favourite?

I can’t get enough of Amsterdam. No matter where I travel, it’s the one stop-over I try to make happen. Lucky enough, I got to go again.

Even though this was from a few weeks ago, the weather is still on its mood swing. I think I had three layers overall, including a tank top from Mendocino, my Burton sweater that i absolutely adore, and my favourite Pull&Bear spring jacket. Also, a colourful scarf from Costa Blanca to add a little colour and SNZ Women flats.

A little much, but I’m relieved I piled on the layers. I was stripping down and dressing right back up every hour.
