WOW! Prom Hair, 2015 Edition…Plus, a GIVEAWAY!

Prom Hair, 2015 Edition

It’s that time of year again…the time when girls all over America are searching the web for their chosen PROM hair!  Pinterest is abuzz with activity, and the newsfeeds are full of up-do’s and curls.  As a hairstylist, prom is definitely an exciting time, as it gives us an opportunity for something different, fancy, out-of-the-norm!  It’s our time to shine, until all of those beautiful girls get done, dressed, and don their heels…then it’s their turn!

I do love prom in the salon. I love the hair; I love the makeup; I love the excitement!  It can be stressful, sure, but anything worth doing has a little edge to it.  This year was a calm, laid-back prom day, with a shop full of sweet, polite, easy-to-please girls.  I raced time a little, and had a client or two wait a little, but nothing crazy. {I also went in an hour earlier than I had to, thanks to one client’s negligence to let me know that she had obviously found a later time with another stylist…that was annoying.  No-shows are always an aggravation, but on prom day?  You’ve got to be kidding me…no one forgets it’s prom, and everyone has a phone these days….sheesh!}

Without any further ramblings, here are my girls with their awesome prom hair and makeup!

And, since I was reduced to only two girls in the end, I’ll share a few of Shuh-Wanda’s beauties, as well.


I got a couple of great action shots of my magnetic bobby pin bracelets!  Those things are so awesome, and I can’t imagine doing formal hair without one!bracelet1


Since you’ve stuck around and viewed all of our gorgeous work, you now get to be privy to something I’ve been teasing about for the last two posts:  a GIVEAWAY!  That’s right, folks, free stuff!  This is some great stuff, too!

Remember this?  Yes, Shuh-Wanda and I went to a fantastic hair show two weekends ago, and there was one little thing I did not share about it.  We got something free that day, just for showing up!  It was a re-usable shopping bag filled with all of these great products,

"it's a 10" products

“it’s a 10” products

and I would very much like to pass this sweet gift along to one of my readers!    I was so pleased to receive such a generous gift from Fashion Focus ’15 and “it’s a 10”, that I wanted to spread the joy! “it’s a 10” is a brand I feel good about, too, because they partnered with Christina Applegate to formulate this product,

"it's a 10" Miracle Whipped Styling Balm

“it’s a 10” Miracle Whipped Styling Balm

and a portion of all proceeds on sales of this product goes to her organization, Right Action for Women (click the links to learn more)!

“it’s a 10” is a fantastic brand, and each product lists ten benefits on the back of the bottle/can that the product can give you. Here’s the rest:

"it's a 10" Miracle Dry Oil Spray

“it’s a 10” Miracle Dry Oil Spray plus Keratin

"it's a 10" Miracle Leave-In Lite, plus a sample of Miracle Shampoo
