Your Complete Guide to Prom Dress Care

During prom season, every teen girl is hunting for the perfect dress and hopes she’ll be the only one in it. In her excitement, she wants to try it on a million times to model it for her girlfriends, make sure it fits perfects, and that it works with her planned hair and make-up choices. However, if your dress has intricate beading on it, you may be damaging your dress more than you think. These tips will help you care for your prom dress care before and after prom.

  • After you peruse and buy prom dresses online, see if your dress needs to be altered at all. Choose a professional tailor and ask them to fit you and them make the appropriate adjustments. After all, it’s a big day so you want your dress to look perfect on you.
  • Keep it in the garment bag that the dress boutique or the alterations place gave you. If either can, arrange to have your dress steamed the day before the dance so any wrinkles disappear. If that isn’t an option, bring your dress in the bathroom and hang it on the door and run the shower around 20 minutes. The warm steam will work magic to make those wrinkles disappear.
  • Use caution the day of your prom while getting ready and doing your beauty treatments. Avoid getting your spray tan too close to prom. Aim for at least two days before or the residue may stain your gown. The same goes for your make-up and hair products. Apply all deodorant, perfume, and fix your make-up and up-do before sliding into your gown. If you do get any stains especially lipstick, dab a bit of white shaving cream on it as it cleans and rinses quickly. Consider bring a Tide to go pen or another stain stick with you in your purse for emergencies.
  • Try not to snag your prom dress.  Be extremely careful with bracelets catching material and watching that you don’t bump anything at the dance. This is especially important if your dress features hand-sewn beads or intricate designs that could snag easily.
  •   Hang up your dress as soon as you take it off as throwing it over a chair will just wrinkle it more. Address any immediate stains.  If you find sweat marks, rub a damp bar of soap over the spot and then apply some liquid detergent and wash it.  Grass stains can be treated with alcohol and mild chlorine bleach. Keep on hand some of the basic stain removal methods, such as club soda, baking soda, and lemon juice.
  • Take your prom dress to a dry cleaner that specializes in formal gowns.  Dry cleaning it will extend the life of your dress, as well as reduce fading because of the special method they use. If you stain your dress at prom, arrange to drop it off the next day.

Keep your dress stored away in a garment back after you get it back from the cleaners. This will keep it fresh in case you decide to wear it to another formal dance.

I have always have black, shiny straight hair until the time, i decided to take a new heights of re-inventing myself to a new look.  Coloring my hair, having it styled and coloring again with a different hair color.   I guess, that’s the same reason why the once black shiny hair becomes dull and plain and practically as they called it, boring and unattractive.

Yet, if I could do it all again, i would still accept that idea of coloring my hair and be different and more bolder.  I’m not even sixteen to look sweet and demure.  I am a working mother now and venturing to being a fashion blogger, you need to take some drastic changes as I called them.

But what i don’t like and hate with my new hair is the fact that it loses all those glory and shine.  That’s why when i have heard that one hair product can actually help woman brings their crowning glory back to it’s prime days, then i should get hold of it and try it for myself.

  • Naturally occurring lipids, known as Ceramides, smooth hair cuticles and retain proteins to fortify hair

Reading the benefits it can give impress me, the only thing left is to make the product to a test. I have heard such great reviews on them and I could not wait to share mine too.   It really does help hair to get back it’s shining brilliance and make it more softer than before.  Just like with every other products, regular use is very important to achieve what you desire.  Although, it leaves a very distinct smell, it must be the silk or the ingredients that comes on it.

Silk proteins help form a transparent, crystalline film that protects and seals hair cuticles. Best for dry, weak, brittle, damaged and chemically-treated hair as the silk proteins penetrate, revitalize and strengthen hair. Natural pearl proteins rejuvenate and fortify hair. Their rich moisturizing properties keep color-treated hair from fading. Pearl proteins work together to give hair enhanced elasticity, vibrancy and luster. Pearl proteins also help protect hair from harsh UV rays.

I guess, i have to wait for another period of time to finally see the full effect it can give but for now, i’m loving what I see and i am very hopeful and positive.  good bye frizzy, dull hair, welcome to sexy, bouncy and beautiful shiny hair.

Feel great with Bangstyle

They say that our hair is our crown and glory.  When i’m a little younger my hair is always the center of attraction and envy of my friends because it’s shiny and smooth but as years goes by and I have tried different products, treatments and hair colors, the ever smooth hair is now frizzy and damaged.

There is a time that I got totally frustrated and have it cut very short and because i cannot find the right hair product for me, i just let them be instead of worrying and making myself crazy over it.

Red defines warm, bold and powerful.  It is the color which extrovert people usually chooses.  Some will view it as love since it’s the color of blood ,  passionate and determined.  But on the negative side, many sees red as anger and destruction since the color is too powerful to ignore.

Fashion and Glamour at Star magic ball 2012

With the recent ABS-CBN Star Magic Ball 2012 held at Makati Shangri-la Hotel, stars lavishly parades showing their different style in their black and white motif.

I also noticed that there is a pattern of designs among the ladies , i don’t know who created their gowns but you can see that most of them are wearing feathered gowns.

Shaina Magdayao looks ravishing on her white gown.  Bare backed and low neckline, she just proved that she can be as sexy and daring but still looking elegant. I can even sense her saying, who care’s if your not mine, (John Llyod) i can find a more better man than you!

kim chiu at her best

Kim Chiu She’s sexy, there’s no denying that.  From her PBB teen days to her sweet image on screen, she’s growing to be a mature woman showing her other side.

Yeng Constantino and Maja Salvador -wise choice

Although Yeng Constantino’s music style is hard and rock, on this day, she shows her soft side, wearing beautiful see- through white gown while Maja Salvador wears a top fitting gown that definitely suits her body.  There is no doubt if she won the star of that night because she really looks gorgeous.

Even though some would deny that there is competition between Princess and I star, Kathryn Bernardo and Walang Hanggan star Julia Montes, there would always be comparison on their acting and on how they carry their self.

Although, i love her at Princess and I , Kathryn’s look here,  like she’s going to attend a wedding and her make up and hair is not as good because she looks more thin and ages a bit.  I guess, if they have done it with a small bun or perhaps just let it loose with some big curls, it would create a different impact and not too formal.

julia montes

Julia’s look is much better, her hair complements her face and her white gown looks good on her what i don’t like here is the extra trail.

handsome hunks of star cinema

 Gone are the days of John Llyod and Piolo Pascual, even though they are star cinema’s bankable actors, these hunks (actors) are Star Cinema and ABS-CBN trending actors this days. There is no doubt that Coco Martin and Jake Cuenca is one of the leading prime time actors in ABS-CBN now and with their growing fans, this two actors will take even more heights on their career.

But just like any event, there are best dressed and worst dressed.  It’s not that i don’t like them, these two actress are indeed good on their different field but it doesn’t mean that your a good actress, you can always be a good dresser too.

dimples romana and pokwang

I just don’t like the dress of Dimples here,  her top looks good but it was not as good at the bottom while Pokwang (although) we know her wearing wild gowns and dresses, her gown this night is not so much appealing to me.

I love Erich looks.  She definitely look elegant and beautiful on this black see-through gown and her hair compliments her style. Elegant and stylish yet not too sweet.  She was also able to show her curves which gives her an extra factor.

erich gonzales

 I guess, just like them who enjoyed the night, their avid fans also enjoyed looking at their beautiful photographs . Another beautiful year had fast with star magic talent, they are now looking on a brand new year full of projects and surprises for each of them.

And yes, i could not end this post without saying how Dawn Zulueta looks great on her simple Givenchy gown and sparkling diamonds (i searched about it) .  She’s always my favorite since I was a teenager and even with that years passed, she’s still a beauty and glamorous as always.

Dawn Zulueta

Too bad, we were not able to see how Gretchen looked at that night, she’s always a stunner and where’s Anne, i believe she’s from Star Magic too and KC Concepcion, i thought she’s all over Piolo.
