Two Is Better Than One

You’ve dared to be a cut above the rest with a chic pair of separates. Elevate your prom look to red-carpet worthy status with a beautiful braided up-do. A semi-tousled style trimmed with loose braids and hair framing locks will keep you looking more like a stunning starlet than a weekend warrior. To keep things smooth, use Sugar Cream Braid Cream.

Off the Cuff

There’s a reason off-the-shoulder and strapless dresses have remained a formal staple. Complement a glamorous OTS gown with equally show-stopping hair. Your beautiful strapless pick will pair well with a fun, high-pony that leaves your shoulders bare. If you’re looking for a little more coverage, soft, natural looking waves will prove a perfect option.

Upscale Details

A beautiful beaded or lace covered high-neck dress is made to standout. Showcase this stunning cut with a hairstyle that elevates an intricate look without overloading it. We love a loose low bun. Create separation in your hair and then add a texturing spray like the Sugar Spray Texturizer for a style that looks effortlessly chic.

Rose Gold Everything

A very on-trend rose gold dress—with its luxe and dreamy hue—will pair well with a romantic braid wrapped ’do. A gorgeous rose gold V-cut or tank style gown will look great with a chic, loose braid. Complement other cuts with a boho inspired hairstyle featuring an elegant French side braid tucked into soft, loose waves.

Yes to Dress-less

Daring to be different with a statement-making jumpsuit? Offering a sleek and stylish starting point, a tailored jumpsuit will pair well with a tight top-knot for a cool, uniform look. Or soften up your crisp ensemble and opt for glamorous loose waves. Whichever you choose, a streak of your favorite Neon™ Temporary Color Hairsprays will inject some fun into your bold and beautiful prom look.
