Choose Your Prom Hair Style 

There are so many possible looks to choose from for prom!  Show your Blakes stylist the pictures of your ideal prom hairstyles, as well as photos of your prom dress.   We are experts at creating the best prom hairstyles in Canterbury and we can suggest different styles to create your perfect prom look.  Before you leave, make sure you book in for your hair appointment for prom day itself!

Curly Prom Hairstyles

We can create a range of fashionable looks by adding curls or waves to your hair.  Depending on your style and the look you want to achieve, we can transform you into a rock chick, give you vintage style with 1940s or 1950s waves or even create cool mermaid or beachy waves.

Prom Hair Upstyles

The updo is always one of the most popular and stylish of prom hairstyles.  At our hair salon in Canterbury we can create whatever upstyle you’d like us to – beautiful chignons, casual upstyles with face-framing tendrils, ballerina buns, plaited upstyles… the list goes on and on!

Plaited Prom Hair Ideas

Braids and plaits always look great for prom and are can work well for all hair types and lengths, even short hair.  Let us know the look you’d like to achieve – bring in a photo of your dress and any hair accessories you’d like to wear and we can come up with a unique hairstyle that will work perfectly with your overall look and style.

Book Your Spray Tan

If you are opting for a spray tan, it’s important book it one or two days before your prom to give time for the colour to develop over several hours.   When you shower the following morning, the beautiful colour of your tan will be revealed.  

Get Your Skin Into Perfect Condition

If you’re worried about blemishes spoiling your look, book a skincare consultation at our Canterbury beauty salon.  We offer a FREE face mapping service and can work with you to develop a treatment plan, which can include making sure your back is looking perfect in your gown if you wish.

Our Dermalogica ProSkin30 treatment would be ideal in the weeks running up to prom, or any special event.  This bespoke service combines key steps of professional exfoliation and deep serum treatment to provide you with visible results fast.  If your skin is blemished and congested, we’d recommend a microdermabrasion treatment to tackle the problem.   Finally, if you want to ensure that your make up sits beautifully for the big event, book a dermaplaning appointment shortly before prom.

Think Hair Removal, Brows, Lashes & Nails!

Enhance your lashes with a lash lift and tint to make your eyes look larger and brighter, bringing extra definition to your face.
