Are you going to straighten your hair for prom?

When I was in high school a lot of the girls who had curly hair would consult w/ each other about the best way to go about straightening their hair for prom. Apparently curly styles are not formal or pretty enough. I only remember one girl who wore her curls, she had
3b jet black curls down to her waist and it was BEAUTIFUL!
Did you/ will you be straightening your curls/waves for prom?

No, I won't be! Half updo's and updo's look insanely great with curly hair.

Furthermore, I wouldn't go through all that hassle only to have it start to frizz in the humidity of the room, or when I'm sweating a bit from dancing, no thank you, curls all the way! If you want to straighten for an occasion try graduation, or the last day of school, not prom.

I agree you should leave it curly. If you're going to straighten it, make sure it's off your face. I used to straighten mine for homecoming and formals and the second i broke a sweat my hair started to curl! It did not look to cute by the end of the night. haha

No way! I haven't had my prom yet, but it's at the end of this school year and I think I'm going with a curly half updo or a curly side messy pony because I don't want to have to worry about whether my hair has actually stayed straight or not during the big night! Curly for sure!
Granted it's been two years since I've been to my last prom, but I wore mine both ways.

I straightened it for my first prom, and I curled it for my second. It was actually harder to curl my hair because the stylist wanted it to curl in the opposite direction, and it wouldn't hold.

In my opinion, prom is a time where we dress up so totally not ourselves, so I see no harm in straightening our curly hair. One of my friends said that she hated her make up person because she kept insisting that my friend do a "natural" look, and my friend said, "I do a natural look every day--this is prom. If I want to look ridiculously painted up, so be it!"

Mine was a mostly curly prom, anyway. Every person who had straight hair (or wore it straightened during school) had it curled. Prom is a time where you can do whatever, as long as it makes you feel beautiful.
i don't go to prom, but I just had a dance and wore it straight. It looked OK, but it started to frizz, puff out, and didn't look as great. Plus, straightening takes so long!

I had my prom in June, and I wore my hair curly. I loved it, and I got a ton of compliments on it, and besides, in the middle of June the humidity here would've made my hair a mess had I straightened it!
