It’s prom season a time when teens participate in the most coveted event of the year. From DJs playing the latest hits to student doing the wobble proms have been the ultimate social event in high schools for years.
Prom is derived from the word promenade which means: a stroll or walk, especially in a public place, as for pleasure or display.
Isn’t this exactly what happens at the prom? People dress up, walk around on display while enjoying the stroll. Sounds very much like a prom to me.
Tons of prep work goes into this special night, but with proper planning and preparation it can be stress free for parents, as well as teens. From the questions of: “Who’s I am going with?” to “What color am I wearing.” everyone goes all out for this once in a lifetime event so of course it HAS to count.
Prom night involves a variety of first times and specialties for young people. It’s sort of their red carpet debut so this special night count and share these Prom Points with your prom attendee to make prom night a very special.night.
Mind your manners. Have fun. Being loud, rude and boisterous leads to negative attention or you become suspect due to your behavior. Be on your best p’s and q’s making this night memorable in a good way.
Morals matter. If you haven’t chosen a date yet, consider someone who’s morals and values reflect the things your parents teach you. Using prom night to up your status with the girls or guys usually leads to ruined reputations and hurt feelings. Know that you are worth so much more than a one night fix could ever afford you. Don’t go for it! In the words of my brother (Osaro Kyles) “If you ain’t been doing it, don’t do it.”
Plan ahead. Parents clearly discuss your prom budget with your child. This allows you to keep it real on what you will spend and leave the drama to someone else’s mama. Map out which stores you know solidly will have your daughter’s style of dresses. Gas is expensive so plan to work and work your plan. Guys do your homework on the tuxedos and know the prices and packages that are offered.
This is strictly for the ladies. We are the most complex when it comes to prom, however the following tips will make the night go smoother.
1. Nails, hair, spa or whatever you choose to do to pamper yourself honor your appointment by being on time. Nails and eyes can be done in advance to cut the rush. Share with the person rendering service that you will need to get in and out in a timely manner therefore making less stress for you.
2. Stilettos are haute and very popular during prom. If you don’t normally wear stilettos don’t take prom night as the night to strut your stuff. This could cause memorable, major embarrassment! Practice walking at least a week in the actual shoe, so that you can make a good mark. 1 to 2.5 inch heels are a good start!
3. Every prom dress begins with the proper foundation. These days there are a variety of options to help smooth, shape and firm so that your dress fits great. Department stores usually offer fittings for bras and can guide you in making the proper purchase for the best fit.
This one is strictly for the guys. It’s pretty much a walk in the park, however the following tips will make the night awesome.
1. Proper grooming is a must. Clear and shape up facial hair to look your best. Get in the chair early to beat the rush. Remember you’ll see your prom pic again 10 years later.
2. If you wear dreds make your appointment early for a good wash and relocking . Smelly dreds are not cute!`
3. Pick up your tux early so if alterations are needed you’ll have time to get them done.
4. Be sure to get dress socks that match your tuxedo. Tube socks can be quite painful in rented tuxedo shoes. Ouch!
5. Be sure to ask your date the color of here dress and the type of corsage she would like to have.
