Prom Countdown at Cheynes Hair & Beauty Salons in Edinburgh

Prom season will soon be here, so we’ve come up with a ‘countdown to prom’ to give you some ideas and suggestions for preparing for the big night!

Call your local Cheynes Hair & Beauty Salon in Edinburgh using the links below to book your prom hair and beauty appointments.  We look forward to helping create your dream prom look!

6 Months Til Prom: Find the Perfect Prom Dress 

It can take quite a while to find the perfect prom dress, so it’s a good idea to start looking as soon as possible.  Try on lots of different dresses until you find the one that makes you feel really special and which suits your unique personal sense of style. 

If your school or college has a closed Facebook page to share pictures of your prom dress, don’t forget to upload your photos as soon as you make the purchase!  This will avoid the awkward moment of arriving at prom only to find someone else wearing the same dress!

Once you’ve chosen your dress, it’s a good idea to start thinking about a prom hairstyle to go with it.  Backless and strappy dresses look lovely with curly hair tumbling down your back or to one side, while higher necklines suit beautiful prom upstyles.  

5 Months Til Prom: Book the Transport

Everyone wants to arrive at prom in style these days and there are so many transport options to choose from!  How about a classic car, taxi, limousine or even a fire engine?   Speak to your friends and work out a sensible budget, bearing in mind that your parents may well feel they’ve already spent plenty of money on your prom dress and accessories!   You’ll want to keep some money in the budget for your hair and beauty treatments too!

4 Months Til Prom: Book Your Prom Hair Trial

To find the perfect prom hairstyle, it’s a good idea to look online for inspiration.  There are lots of possible styles to choose from, including long curly prom hairstyles, glamorous prom upstyles, bohemian prom hairstyles, braided prom hairstyles to name but a few.  Once you’ve got some ideas, book a prom hair trial at your local Cheynes Hair Salon in Edinburgh.

Show your stylist your pictures of your favourite prom hairstyles, as well as photos of your prom dress.  We are experts at creating the best prom hairstyles in Edinburgh so we can try out a few styles which will complement your overall prom look. Before you leave, make sure you book your hair appointment for prom day itself to secure your ideal time-slot.

3 Months Til Prom: Arrange Your Prom Parties

These days it has become traditional for young people to enjoy a pre-prom party, the prom, and then an after-prom party.  Speak to your parents now if you are hoping they will host a party for you!  The pre-prom is a lovely event where a few friends and family can get together before the prom and take some photos to remember this very special occasion. 

2 Months Til Prom: Book Prom Make-Up & Tanning Service

If you are worried about looking too pale in your prom dress, you might want to consider a professional spray tan to give you a sun-kissed glow.  At Cheynes Beauty Salon in in George Street Edinburgh we use top quality St Tropez tanning lotion, for a gorgeous, natural looking colour.

Equally, if you don’t think your make-up skills are up to creating that special look for your big night, why not book our professional make-up service at Cheynes in George Street instead? We can help you create the perfect look for prom night. 

The Week Before Prom:  Think Hair Removal, Brows, Lashes & Nails!

It’s nearly time for prom, so now the detailed preparations start!   Here are the beauty treatments to think about this week:

Hair Removal: to make sure you are silky smooth in your gown, book in for a waxing or IPL treatment.

Brow Shaping: Professionally shaped eyebrows frame your face and enhance your eyes – a must for the all- important photos!  Our HD Brows service at Cheynes Beauty Salon in Lothian Road will give you perfectly formed, celebrity-style brows.

Luscious Lashes: Everyone knows how important eyelashes are when it comes to perfecting your look and we have a range of eyelash treatments available to enhance your eyes, including LVL lashes and lash tinting.

Gorgeous Hands & Feet: You won’t want ragged nails to let you down on the big night and we offer a great range of high-quality manicures and pedicures.  

The Day Before Prom: Spray Tan 

If you are opting for a spray tan, book in one or two days before your prom as the colour will develop over several hours – you wash it off to reveal a lovely golden tan beneath!  

It’s Prom Day!

The team at Cheynes Hair Salons in Edinburgh love to transform our clients and see them leaving the salon looking and feeling sensational!  It’s time to relax and enjoy having your hair and makeup done, before heading home to put on your prom dress.

Relax while you either do your make-up yourself or have it done professionally.  Then slip on your prom dress, shoes and grab your bag… before heading off to your pre-prom.  Make sure you take lots of photos and remember to tag Cheynes!  We hope you have a wonderful night to remember!
