We get it: preparing for prom is a BIG DEAL. Between choosing the dress, finding your beauty look, picking the perfect night-of playlist— even downloading a rad picture app!—prepping for high school’s biggest night is sort of like a full-time job. Luckily, making sure your prom goes off without a hitch IS our job (well, kind of), which is why we have one more awesome resource to throw into our mix of prom essentials. We’re talking about YouTube, otherwise known as the ultimate internet treasure trove of beauty inspiration from real girls everywhere. We’ve already loaded you up on hair and makeup how-tos from our favorite Hollywood pros, but in case you haven’t found your night-of look quite yet, not to worry…from beachy mermaid waves to the perfect elegant bun, these YouTube vloggers have you covered. Check out our top tutorials for prom hair below, and stay tuned for the best makeup vids tomorrow!
