5 Cut Life Approved Prom Looks

By  | 

My senior prom was in 2008, and I remember feeling extra fancy with my asymmetrical bob (Thanks, RiRi!) and my backless gold sequin dress. Over the past few weeks, my Facebook feed and Instagram explore page has been filled with prom pictures, and boy, has prom changed. I quickly realized that I have nothing on today’s teens with their gorgeous gowns, magnificent makeup, and most of all, those hairstyles that absolutely slay.

Here are a few of my favorite looks and the products you’ll need to recreate them:
