Is Straightening Bad For Prom?

April 7, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

There are many girls who go with fancy up-do’s at prom season. French twists, tight curly buns, fish braided side pony, you’ll see a very big variety. So many girls will pay fifty dollars or more to get their hair styled professionally. This is great because it’s a one night only kind of occurrence and is important for most girls, especially high school senior girls. On the other hand, some girls don’t care as much what their hair looks like and would rather save money so they take the conservative route by simply performing a style on their own at home.

The choice of staying safe and cheap may be a little bit smarter for prom. Using a simple hair straightener on prom night is just as fun as getting an up-do for some girls. Although some say that they should go all out for the special night, it’s not necessarily a bad thing to straighten your hair. It’s not as bad as many people make it sound and it turns out looking great. There are few benefits to doing this style, too.

Of course, I already mentioned the incredible amount of money you can save by straightening your hair at home for prom. But there are other ways to look at it, too. You can kind of customize your hairstyle if you do it yourself because it’s you that’s performing the style and you can do it however you want, first hand. You can add a few curls here and there to add a little flirt to the ‘do. You can also put your own kind of style to it: make it edgy or subtle, it’s your choice because you’re in charge. This way you can also fix it yourself if you don’t like it; you don’t have to feel bad about hurting a stylist’s feelings. Straightening your hair is also a great way to keep hair from getting so messy. Some girls experience a problem with the way their hair falls after getting it styled. They seem to want to change their style because it falls apart as the day goes on. With your straight hair, you can easily go home and straighten it again in a matter of two minutes, whereas other girls can’t go back to their hairdresser and get it fixed.

You can spend a fortune on getting your hair all done up for an event that lasts three hours, or you can save money and style it yourself. As you go to your hairdresser with the thought that straightening your hair isn’t fancy enough, remember all of the benefits of using that straightener. Any style will wind up being beautiful on prom night but straightening isn’t necessarily a bad thing to do for this event.
