With prom right around the corner on May 12th, many people have plans on getting their hair and makeup done. However, getting your hair done professionally is not only expensive but time consuming. Student cosmetologist Olivia Carhart gave the Talon step by step instructions on a do it yourself prom hairstyle.

What You Need:

  • A flat iron or curling wand
  • Bobby pins that match your hair color
  • Heat protectant
  • Shine gel
  • (optional) fake flowers or gems
  • (optional) hairspray

Directions:

  1. Prep your hair with heat protectant and turn your flat iron on.
  2. Curl your hair using either a curling wand for tight curls or a flat iron for sleek waves.
  3. Take a one inch section from the right of your part and split the section into two.
  4. Twist both sections towards your face.
  5. Twist both sections together away from your face then pin in the back.
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 for the left of your part.
  7. Put the ends of the twist into a half-up bun.
  8. (optional) add fake flowers or gems to glam up your hair.
  9. Hairspray so it will stay and place.

Outside of CAT-South, she was the hair and makeup co-chair for “Oklahoma!” and “Rock N Roll Revival.” She is a salon assistant at Chesapeake Salons and is still taking clients for Prom.
