2008 Prom Hairstyles

Your hairstyle can make or break your whole look - especially on prom night. So plan ahead to find a style that's perfect for you, whether it's sexy and glamorous or simple and casual.

Glamorous Updo

Blake Lively steps out with a glamorous updo. An updo is traditional and glamorous. It's tricky though, so be prepared to fork over some dough for a trip to the hair salon! If you're strapped for cash, ask your mom to help pull your hair into a low ponytail, twist it into a knot, and then braid the sides of your hair back away from your face, securing with bobby pins. Just remember to wash your hair the night before, as updos work best on hair that's a little dirty (squeaky clean hair is too slippery to stay up and stay put).



Slicked Back

Hilary Duff slicks back her hair. If you're not the type of girl who worries about hair #394 being out of place, then this is the choice for you. This no muss, no fuss hairstyle works on both long and short tresses. All you have to do is pull your hair back into a messy bun and slick down any flyaways with gel.





Romantic Curls

Vanessa Hudgen's soft waves give off a romantic vibe. Curls and waves give a romantic touch to your prom dress. Girls who are blessed with curls won't have to put forth too much effort, but if your hair is straight, then use big, hot rollers to give your hair some much-needed volume. Once you're done, finger comb your hair because you'll lose your curls if you use a brush, and finish off with a light spritz of hairspray to lock in your curls. The key to this hairstyle is to create loose waves, not tight ringlets.



Straight and Sleek

Miley Cyrus' straight locks are sleek and sexy. Straight and sleek is totally sexy, but your hair has to be in healthy condition (that means no split ends!). Pin-straight hair takes a little prep work, so start out by smoothing a straightening balm on freshly washed hair. Then use a flat iron to get rid of any puffiness, but don't clamp down on one section for more than 10 seconds because you could burn your hair! Finally, dab on some hair gloss to add extraordinary shine to your locks.



Short Crops

Rihanna's short crop is sassy! Glam up your hair with killer accessories! You can clip on some rhinestone hairpins, place a pretty flower behind your ear, or even wear a diamond tiara. But if that's not your thing, try using a curling iron to flip out the ends of your pixie cut, or use gel to spike it up for an edgy effect. Aside from being easy to style, short crops are great for showing off your dazzling earrings and necklace!

    Talk it through. Ask them out maybe? don't worry about it. It'll work out. If they like you as much as you them, you have nothing to worry about. :)

    How do I stop thinking about this guy in my school? Like seriously it's pissing me off. Every time we're in the same room, I have this uncanny awareness of where he is and what he is doing. He makes me want to watch the door of the two classes we have together whenever he enters or leaves the room, he makes me look forward to Art and Spanish and disappointed when he isn't there despite the fact I don't even talk to him much. He makes butterflies surge in my stomach and my heart pound in my ears, he makes me so nervous when I'm around him and I have to keep myself from making shaky movements. He makes me want to stare, but I don't want people to know that I care. (And great, he just made me rhyme as well).And a series of coincidences have resulted in me having to interact with him in Art. Ex). We had to draw a # out of a hat and review someone else's artwork...guess whose I got? And my teacher randomly gave us new tables-so now he sits right across from me. ...this is driving me insane. What do I do? (And I'm praying to God right now that he doesn't go on Kidzworld-if he does I hope he doesn't put two and two-oh look fantastic I rhymed again. I'm not even trying make this STOP I'm not even writing rationally anymore)

P.S if you help thanks soooo much I'm not exactly an expert on this but...why not talk it out with them? Get to know them better and figure out what you both want? I mean, you both apparently feel the same way, that's half the battle.  I can only assume you both are unsure what to do because you guys are hesitant about making a move and actually forming a relationship. I mean, I get it: relationships are scary; though I've never actually been in one, I know the thought of it can be. You're voluntarily making yourself vulnerable to another human being, you're letting someone in to your life in a way that you've never done before, a way that can leave you hurting or actually make your life better.  Humans fear the unknown and crave familiarity, and a new relationship is definitely new territory.  But just because there's the possibility of getting hurt doesn't mean you shouldn't try. Take that plunge into the unknown, let yourself fall, say Geronimo and dive into that waterfall (see what I did there?)-because you'll never know what could be unless you take a chance.
