Listen up, girls. Before you head to the prom, ask your stylist for one of these hot looks.
Forget fussy, unnatural up-dos, the area’s beauty experts agree bouncy, beachy waves, romantic braids—and even sleek ponytails—are the hot trends for this year’s prom hair. “It’s a lot softer and more natural,” said Tyler Emerick, a stylist at BeautyFirst in Cranberry. “It’s not as structured of an up-do as it has been in the past.” For this year’s prom, Emerick is forecasting braids as one of the top hairstyle trends—and he’s not talking about the tight schoolgirl braids or French braids of your youth, either. Instead, Emerick said this year’s braids are unstructured and soft. He predicts another top trend with girls will be blown-out hair worn down, but with lots of volume.

Practice makes a perfect look for your formal event.
If you’re trying to have an unforgettable evening instead of a regrettable one, prom makeup is definitely something you want to practice at home before going to the big event. Upper St. Clair High School's prom is on June 14 — less than a month away! Patch has assembled some tips to help get ready. 1. Eyes.
