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!

    EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

    You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

    For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

    Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
