Tips for School Prom: Prom Day Countdown

Having a prom planning on hand can keep your schedule moving smoothly toward prom night and take away any stress you may feel.

8 or 9:00 a.m.: On prom day, sleep in and enjoy a little extra rest and relaxation. Eat a healthy breakfast to start your day.

9:30 a.m.: Take a shower. It may be better if you don't wash your hair if you're having an elaborate style done. Updos tend to last longer with hair that hasn't been recently washed and conditioned.

10:00 a.m.: Be sure that you have all of the wardrobe elements that you'll need for prom, including prom gown, shoes, pantyhose (and a spare pair), undergarments, purse, and jewelry. If you're missing anything, now you have ample time to get them.

11:00 a.m.: Pick up prom boutonniere for your prom date.

Noon or 1:00 p.m.: Eat a healthy lunch. Enjoying regular meals will ensure that you have the energy to make it through the day.

2:00 p.m.: Wear a button-down shirt and head to your hair appointment. The shirt will ensure you won't mess your finished style once you're getting changed. Remember to bring any hair embellishments, such as barrettes or a tiara, with you to the appointment.

4:00 p.m.: Apply deodorant, body powder and any body glitter.

4:15 p.m.: Begin to apply your prom makeup.

4:45 p.m.: Pack your purse with necessities, such as touch-up lipstick, tickets, tip for limousine driver, breath mints, clear nail polish to stop pantyhose runs, etc.

5:00 p.m.: Carefully get into your prom dress without messing your hair or makeup. Cut off any hanger straps from your dress so they don't dislodge when you're dancing.

5:15 p.m.: Check yourself in the mirror to ensure everything for your ensemble is in place. Wait for your date.

5:30 p.m.: Have your parents take pictures of you before you leave so you'll have some before-the-prom memory photos.

5:45 p.m.: Head to the prom and remember to enjoy yourself.
