Junior Prom and Senior Ball Resources

It’s that wonderful time of year when all of the high school juniors and seniors are making arrangements for their Junior Prom or Senior Ball. With so many things to think about it can be a daunting task. At the  Elizabeth Nicole Salon we thought it would be helpful to list some local resources for you along with links to their sites. While this is not an exhaustive list, it can be a good start. And, we’ve taken the time to read their Yelp! reviews to gain more insight on their quality of service.

First and foremost on the minds of most girls is finding the perfect dress. We spent some time checking out the reviews on Yelp! and the real winner here is:

This was the only dress shop with such a great rating.

Tuxedo Rentals are also an important consideration and these two were the best in the area:

  • Selix Formalwear, Pleasant Hill store has 6 Reviews, Five Star
  • Men’s Wearhouse, Walnut Creek store has 31 Reviews and only Two Star rating, they also have stores in Concord and San Ramon.

Limousine Services that cater to proms and balls and have a positive reputation and quality level of service:

Now, last but certainly not least, make sure you order your flowers. If you have a bit of ribbon or lace that matches your dress, you can even bring that to the florist ahead of time and incorporate it into your corsage or boutonniere.

If you have a special hair style, print pictures to bring with you to your appointment; sometimes your vision and the stylist’s vision of what you describe can be slightly different, but a picture is worth a thousand words, right? Review our boards on Pinterest for fresh ideas!

At the Elizabeth Nicole Salon we love to do Special Event styling and we have a promotion this year that includes FREE airbrushed makeup along with your styling service. We have package prices available if you decide to have a Beach Candy spray tan and hair styling and this still includes FREE airbrushed makeup!

Blow Outs & Event Styling

When it’s time for weddings, engagements, and special moments in your life-it may be a junior prom or a senior ball, a homecoming dance or graduation ceremony-it is time to seek out professional styling services.

At the Elizabeth Nicole Salon we have a full range of looks and styles that can be created for you and we can work with any pictures or styles you bring in for your event. Our Hair Stylists can even compliment the look with Airbrush Makeup and Beach Candy spray tanning services.

Updo n.  is a hair style that involves arranging the hair instead of allowing it to fall freely. It can be as simple as a ponytail, but is more commonly associated with more elaborate styles intended for special occasions such as a prom or wedding.

When deciding upon the right style for you it is best to look through photographs to see if there is something you would really like to wear. The Elizabeth Nicole Salon is constantly adding beautiful photos of hairstyles and color to our Pinterest page so you may easily find something you like on our Special Occasion Hairstyles or there are examples of sleeker up-do’s in our Chignons and French Twists board. We also have boards for Bridal Style and Beautiful Braids. Take the time to look at these styles and others that you may find in magazines or on the internet. Print out a copy of any style that has elements you may like, and don’t worry about having one perfect style because we may decide to blend different elements from different styles to give you a custom design that is truly unique.

Professional styling not only provides you with the right look, but your style will last through the event time. Take some of the stress out of preparing for your event, work with our professional stylists so you can relax and enjoy yourself.
