When it comes to styling your graduation hair and makeup there are a few things you need to keep in mind: humidity, confidence, and the cap! The day is alllll about the cap. And that super stylish graduation gown ;). But mostly the cap. So, when you are styling your hair and makeup for the big day, you need to be aware of how the humidity will affect your handiwork and how best to accentuate that hat. Here are a few tips to help you along.

  1. Hair: When it comes to hair, you have to work around the hat. Usually styling your hair down is your best bet for hat-wearing activities. And, like I said earlier, humidity needs to be kept in mind. You will be in a hot, stuffy auditorium or gym for quite a while waiting for your turn to walk across the stage and get your diploma, and in that time your hair can go from sleek and chic to frizzy. Before styling your hair, use a shine serum to help tame frizz. Then after styling run a lightweight dry oil through your locks to prevent flyaways.its-graduation-day-kt47vg
  2. Makeup: Your grad cap will draw attention to your face, so be sure to use powder to prevent your skin from getting shiny and primer to prevent your makeup from running. Humidity can do not-so-great things to makeup. Also, accentuate your eyes! Use a dash of pearl shadow at the corners of your eyes to brighten them. Use a lip color that you are comfortable with, not something too crazy, and keep it simple. You want to be comfortable and confident in your graduation look! You will be taking tons of pictures and pictures last a lifetime, so you want to feel and look your best. 🙂

Good luck, grads!

XOXO, Chels

I know it’s only the end of January but with spring approaching, we all have one thing on our minds…  What will my prom dress look like this year?  As girls, we love to dress up and have that extra special night with the perfect dress, shoes, hair, and makeup!  This year is no different.  You may think it’s too early to be thinking of prom dresses, but I think Chelsea Crockett - Two Piece Prom Dressthe earlier the better! The faster you get your dress, the less you have to worry about copying someone else or duplicating their dress.

What’s nice about this year is that almost any dress will fit the fashion scene.  If you like long and straight, glittery and full, or even a two piece dress, then you are in luck.  You’ll be ready for the red carpet look.  My suggestion would be to get online and find the style you’re looking for that best fits your body type and your inner fashion style.  Many of the dresses have open backs or high neck cuts.  If you want to be the princess of the ball, perhaps a gown with sheer sequins or tiny sparkles will give you that extra feminine look.

One of the looks I love for this year is a trendy two piece gown.  Many of them have sequins and cut outs to give just the look you are going for.  I still haven’t decided which dress is my exact favorite but I can sure spend endless hours looking at beautiful dresses online and in magazines.  It’s not too early to get started!

Happy shopping! – Chelsea
