Are you ready for the school ball?

school ball

BY STACEY MILICH

What are you wearing? How are you having your hair and makeup? Are you doing it yourself or hiring a professional?

The school ball season is such an exciting time of the year, an occasion that many teenagers look forward to. A chance to get a little glam and have an amazing night out with your friends!

First up for the girls, and by far this has to be the most important is the dress! Create a memory and standout this year in your ballgown, make sure you LOVE it, it fits perfectly and is the look you are after. Next start thinking about your makeup and hair! Personally, I love hiring a makeup artist and hairdresser for my special occasions – it is the chance to have a little well deserved pampering, and you also have the guarantee that it is going to look amazing! If you are deciding to DIY make sure you are prepared! There are loads of online tutorials out there to help!

In the weeks leading up to the ball, there are many other things to think about, that will all help bring the magic of the night together and make it amazing:

Flowers... Nails... Spray Tan... Facial... Brow Works... Professional Pre-Ball Photos...

On the day it is always fun getting a group of friends together to get ready... it makes the occasion more memorable and exciting – remember to take heaps of photos so you can look back and remember the good times!

Whether you go to the effort to do everything or not, hire a professional or not – the most important thing it to make sure you be safe, have fun, make memories, feel beautiful.
