Trying these fabulous looks don’t have to be a painstaking task. Special occasions are a perfect reason to treat yourself to a profession styling session. While having an event as special as prom on your calendar is great to showcase your unique style, it’s not the time to be a kitchen-tician. The right stylist should be able to re-create your favorite look in less time and with more accuracy, leaving you with plenty of time for last minute primping. The best way to find a good natural hair stylist is to ask for referrals. Find girlfriends, co-workers or associates who’s hair you admire and ask them to suggest someone they trust with hair. Make an appointment for a practice run before your event, this also gives you an opportunity to make sure the chemistry is right for the two of you. Take lots of pictures so that your ideas can be easily visualized. Follow these tips and your next formal event should not only be fabulous but you’ll make it look effortless! –kerstina madden
