By this time in your prom prep, your “to do” list probably looks like this…Dress. Check. Date. Check. Plans for later in the night. Check. But the question remains, how do you bump up your make-up and hair from ordinary to extraordinary? With the stylists at Aeracura Salon in Winston-Salem, NC, you can arrive at your prom with the look you love.
Each year brings new hairstyles and make-up trends, and the stylists at Aeracura Salon, led by owner and stylist, Christi Bradham, know what’s in and what’s out for hair and make-up for Prom 2019.
“Hair and make-up trends this year have a simple boho edge with a touch of retro. As always, there is a rule about dresses, which is, how you wear your hair depends on the statement of the dress itself. The more detailed the dress, and consequently the detail of the back of the dress, the more coifed, neat updo is required to show off the dress,” said Christi. A suggested look is a boho-chic, loose bun which is simple and understated to bring out the eloquent details in a dress.
“Loose, textured curls with cascading layers are always a win to enhance a glamorous look. Vintage inspired bob or lobs with a soft wave are another favorite for this year’s prom look. If you are into a bit more of an edgy style, bangs are back! Bangs, or a long, swooping fringe are the best way to change up your look with a sassy statement, and we can design a look all your own,” stylist Krista Crafton commented. And you don’t have to go up in your style or have bangs, [so] don’t forget about the braids!
“Light, whimsical braids wrapped into long airy tresses are also a very popular look this season,” stated Acacio Da Silva, master stylist. So once you know the look you want for your hair, the fun continues with the make-up, to pull the look all together.
“Make-up trends for 2019 are color blends with a soft, subtle, nude palette. The “pow” in popular make-up looks are luxurious, long lashes and a loud lipstick color to give your eyes and lips a pop! Think lip colors like burgundy, vibrant reds, and bright pinks. The key to take any look from basic to glamorous is lipstick! And always remember to take your lipstick wherever you go, because you never know when you may need a touch-up,” Christi said. All this sounds like a lot of fun, but getting ready with friends makes the day of the prom even more special, and you and your besties can all go to Aeracura Salon together before the big night.
“We love doing parties and groups of girls at Aeracura Salon. Why not bring a friend, because it’s more fun that way and every student gets 10% off every day. We offer lash extensions, waxing, manicures, pedicures, and teen facials if you want to pre-pamper yourself before prom. A secret to having beautiful skin before any occasion is to make sure your skin is moisturized. That can be challenging for young skin, and that’s why it’s best to consult with a professional for the right products to use. Jessica Coleman and Kristal Provencher are able to help you with the skin-care products that best address your skin’s needs, and any concerns you may have. Our team of stylists and designers is here, ready to make your prom dreams come true!” commented Christi.
