From old-Hollywood wavy styles to classic up-do’s and from sexy rock’n’roll hair to whimsical braids, our favourite celebs are a great source of inspiration for prom hairstyle ideas. Whether you are looking for something that’s more stylized, like Blake Lively’s elaborate braid, or classically elegant like Ashley Greene’s loose up-do, or a glamourous look like Carrie Underwood’s long wavy style, here are some great options to browse through.
Emma Stone’s hair and makeup always look great when she makes appearances on the red carpet. Her look is so versatile; she can pull off super blonde hair, just as well as red and dark brown. I really can’t decide which hair color I prefer on her. They all look great. Emma’s makeup is usually flawless as well. I love that she’s a little daring with lip color and dramatic eye makeup. She’s a great chick to look to for makeup ideas, especially when you want to glam-up up your look. Here are some of my favourite Emma Stone looks from recent appearances:
Are you looking for some prom makeup ideas that could add dramatic elegance to your prom look? Try darker hues than you normally wear (metallics are great!), or maybe a pop of color to emphasize your eyes. For your lips, try a super bold lip gloss (a dark berry color, maybe?)
Tip: Pick an area of your face to emphasize — your eyes or your lips. If you pick a super bold lip color then wear a lighter, more natural eye-shadow. This is the key to keeping your look sophisticated.
Have fun experimenting with different looks and determine what works best for your face and your prom dress.
Forget about playing it safe with your nails for prom—instead, play up the retro neon trend. I love the super bold colors of Kat Von D’s nail lacquers. Pictured below is No Regrets, a glittery hot pink.

Naked 2, the sequel to the first set by Urban Decay is now available. I love the versatility of these collections–I have the first one and use it all the time. This new collection includes matte colors as well and more shimmery ones. The darker colors are gorgeous and are great for creating a smokey eye look, perfect for prom night.
