When should you get your nails done for prom?

You should get your nails done the day before prom. They will last until prom night in the same condition as long as you're a little careful. Getting your nails out of the way the day before is a good idea. Especially if you have a hair and makeup look that may take a few hours on the day itself. It takes some of the time constraints off your prom day. Buy a clear nail polish top coat you can apply to strengthen the look if needs be.

What should I eat the day before prom?

Many girls suffer from tummy bloat, it's common and normal. If you want to avoid this, try to eat light meals and snacks the day before prom. Avoid heavy carbs, carbonated drinks, and dairy products. Stick to lean protein such as chicken or white fish, teamed up with leafy green veggies, some fruit, smoothies, and nuts. This will help keep your stomach flat but will also fill you up so you're not feeling hungry as you prepare for prom. It's a good idea to have a large breakfast on prom morning but stick to oatmeal, fruit and natural fruit juices.

Should you do your makeup or hair first?

Many girls wonder if they should book their hair appointment before their makeup appointment. If you're going to two different professionals, this can be a hard call to make.

That means if your hair is complicated and will take over an hour, get that done before makeup. If you've planned a dramatic makeup look but you're keeping hair simple, book the makeup appointment first.
