Some of the best hair accessories are invisible! Bumpits are hair volumizing inserts that are self-gripping, leave-in pieces of plastic that give hair instant volume.

The Fascinator, a hairpiece recently popularized by Princess Kate Middleton, is a great hair accent and a fabulous attention-getter! While everyday feathers may be on their way out, a big plumed fascinator may be just what your prom ensemble needs!

No. 3: Silver Headband

A gorgeous Silver Headband with a beautiful cluster of rhinestone encrusted flowers off to one side adds a touch of elegance and tops off a beautiful feminine look.

No. 2: Flowers

Weaving flowers in your hair seems so romantic, but live flowers wilt by evening's end. Dried baby's breath woven into a braided updo, a wreath or a hair clip, however, don't dry out and add a delicate touch of romance to your lovely look.

No. 1: Tiara

Okay, I've NEVER posted anything about my friends before, so bear with me. I've known that me and my BFF have the same crush since we met in 5th grade. But it always seems that my BFF is closer to him than I'll ever be. They went to 2 school dances together while I'm still in the friend zone with my crush. I pretend to not care but I really do care. I've never been in this situation before and don't know what to do about it. Should I tell my BFF how I feel or wait this whole thing out? Or even forget my crush being my crush and find a new crush? HELP!!!!!   :love :confused

Maybe that's the only line that needs to be said? You don't have to write down a whole paragraph explaining about how you feel. Sometimes, one word or one sentence can be enough. :p but I don't know. Maybe I have no clue what I'm talking about. :p

You'll have to remember, your parents love you, with that being said. If you feel like you can talk to them and they're reasonable, go ahead. But if you feel like waiting it's up to you. I think your family will support you, because they do love you. Maybe they'll be upset at first, but they'll come around, everyone does eventually. Is there anyone in your family that knows, like a cousin? Maybe you can ask for their opinion if you should tell your parents, and family. However, it's up to you. and remember, your parents care and love you.

You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!
