School balls are a time when you and your friends can enjoy each other’s company and take a break from the schoolwork. You want to try on different outfits at least a few weeks before the ball so that you can get a better idea of which one best suits your personality. Since you will take plenty of pictures at the ball, you can create a scrapbook or photo album of the memories. Here are some additional tips for having a memorable school ball.
Leave Hair and Makeup to Professionals
While you may be skilled at doing fun hairstyles, the school ball is an excellent occasion for letting a hairdresser pamper you for your special night. Look through hair magazines and cut out the picture of the style you like the most. Then, visit the hairdresser and discuss how you want your hair to look. On the day of the ball, you can visit a makeup artist and have her do the makeup thirty minutes before the ball begins.
Practice The Latest Dances
People love it when you have excellent dancing skills, so before you arrive at the school ball venue, you should practice some of the latest dances. You don’t have to do them perfectly. You just need to be yourself and have a great time! You can learn these dances from your friends, online videos and classmates.
If your child is driving to the prom, you need to talk to him about staying safe on the road. Mention that he should pay attention while driving and that he needs to avoid texting or to take phone calls while on the way. If your child is going with a friend, tell him about the dangers of riding with students who appear untrustworthy. Make sure your child has emergency cash, and a list of phone numbers they can use should an emergency occur.
Take Amazing Pictures
It’s also important that you take cool pictures at the school ball. Capture the sweet and humorous moments at the ball, and have the classmates pose in funny ways. For example, your best friends might want to jump in the air, or all do their own unique dances while you take their pictures.
Go Out for a Meal After the Ball
Since you might be hungry after the ball, why not go out for a meal later on? The restaurant doesn’t have to be fancy. A burger or seafood joint would work. During the meal, you should talk about what’s going on everyone’s lives as well as the latest entertainment gossip. It is a time to relax and enjoy the rest of the night.
Brush Up on Social Skills
At the ball, you will talk to plenty of classmates so you’ll need to hone your social skills. Make eye contact and don’t use your devices throughout the conversation as this is rude behavior. Don’t just socialize with those you know well. Meet new students and get to know them better. You might make new friends.
In conclusion, school balls offer a great opportunity for students to socialize and learn life skills that they will need upon entering adulthood. Savor each moment of the night and capture as many memories as possible. Don't ignore your parents' rules for curfews and be safe at all times.
