Question ID# - 13
My sister's prom is in two weeks, and she is planning to go dressed as a flapper. The problem is that we can't seem to find a suitable harstyle for her because she does not want to cut her curly, shoulder length hair. She plans to wear a hat or headband. Any suggestions?
Your sister can wear her hair back, in a low chignon, and place a spitcurl on one cheek if possible. She can place an ostrich feather in the chignon... and go dancing!
