We’ve given you a sneak peek into the Oscar Worthy Gift Bags that were given away to the influencer and celebrity guests at the Faviana Oscars Red Carpet Viewing Party and now it’s time to let you Glam & Gowns gals dive a bit deeper into that envious bag – It’s time for another giveaway!
If you haven’t already watched The Bachelor’s Olivia Caridi’s Oscar Worthy Gift Bag Reveal then get right to it! Olivia revealed the amazing gift bag (which was said to have weighed 30 pounds!) with all of you a few days ago on the Glam & Gowns YouTube channel. One of her favorite products, which so happens to even be one of ours too, is the WEN Haircare Cleansing Conditioners. WEN provided all of our influencer guests with enough cleansing conditioner to make sure their luscious locks stayed oh-so-perfect until their next red carpet or Faviana Clubhouse event!
Just as WEN wanted to make sure the influencers would be set for their next event, they also wanted to be sure that one of you lovely readers would be prepped and ready to go on prom day. We’ve teamed up with WEN to give away a cleansing conditioner set so be sure to keep reading to learn how you can enter into the giveaway.
A Bit About WEN
The cleansing conditioners come in some amazing scents but our favorite is the Winter Cranberry Mint, we just can’t get enough of it! What is unique about these cleansing conditioners is that they are soy based which means they are suitable for all hair types and will cleanse your hair without stripping it of it’s natural oils. The conditioners keep your hair hydrated, create shine, body, and lasting volume – the perfect combination for prom hair styling prep.
How to Prep for Your Prom Hair Style
1. Do Your Research
After picking out your dress and finding the right shoes and accessories, it’s time to think about how you’re going to style your hair. Now, this is going to depend on the neckline you choose to wear. So, when arriving at the salon for your prom hairstyle consultation, make sure to bring in a photo of your dress so your stylist can help suggest the perfect look.
2. Pick You Favorite Hairstyle
A dress with a v-neckline like will draw the eye vertically and help to elongate your body. Not a six foot tall runway model, no problem, the v-neck is your friend! Complement the long lines being created with this style by wearing your hair in loose curls, perhaps with a few pieces pulled away from your face.
A one-shoulder prom dress will already draw attention to your shoulders and the upper portions of your body. To not compete with the dramatic style of this type of dress, choose a hairstyle like a side-swept updo, or even a fun fishtail braid, that will balance out the asymmetrical neckline.
Another style seen all over the red carpet this season are off the shoulder dresses. You will have the most freedom with this type of style. You can opt to wear your hair down with natural texture for a boho hair style or in a high pony away from your face to show off the dress’ neckline.
3. Prep Your Hair The Night Before the Prom
Since the WEN cleansing conditioners won’t strip your hair of it’s natural oils you will definitely want to use this cleansing conditioner to wash your hair the night before going into the hair salon for your fancy prom updo or hairstyle. The natural oils in your hair help to mold and shape whatever style you’re going to go with so make sure you’re choosing a cleansing conditioner like WEN that won’t get rid of your hair’s natural oil and texture.
1st: Rinse your hair and dispense an appropriate amount of the cleansing conditioner with just a splash of water to help distribute it.
2nd: Massage the cleansing conditioner into your hair and leave it in for the rest of your shower. Then, make sure to rinse it all out completely.
3rd: Apply a dime size to a quarter size amount of the cleansing conditioner, depending on your hair length and texture, as a leave-in conditioner. Your hair will be so soft and shiny the next morning!
It’s Prom Day!
After completing these steps you’ll be all set to rock that amazing prom hair style for the entire night!
