Starting in this fall, high schools will be launching parades and pep rallies in preparation of their homecoming football game, ending the week off with an incredibly memorable dance. Sometimes choosing where to eat before and picking a dress can inspire a bit of anxiety. Having a girl’s guide can help avoid all stress and anxiety for this special night.

What to wear:

Ladies, this is your chance to shine. Since homecoming is not as formal as prom, keep this in mind for a less stressful day of shopping. When choosing a strapless dress, be careful that it fits your bust, otherwise, you will be adjusting your dress all night.

“Wear something you are comfortable in,” junior Kenzie Baucum said. “Not something that will please everyone else.”

If you choose to wear high heels, bring a backup pair of sandals to change into to avoid aching feet throughout the night.

Date or No Date?:

It is okay if you do not get asked to homecoming. Be bold and take the initiative to ask your group of friends to go with you. If you are falling short and feel like you have no idea what to do, take a look at Pinterest for a few ideas on how to ask your friends to homecoming. Date or no date, homecoming will be enjoyable either way.
“Homecoming is a great chance to hangout with all of your friends and have a good time,” Baucum said.  “Having a date is just another person you can hang with while you are there.”

Beauty Preparation:  

A girl’s worst nightmare is to find herself stuck with a bad hairdo, orange spray tan, or raccoon eyes before the night’s festivities. To avoid these mishaps, test your makeup before the night of the dance. Also try to schedule your hair appointment at least a month in advance. You do not want to be competing for a stylist the week before homecoming. If you pick an intricate hair style, ask your hairstylist if they can do a style test run the week before.

Now that you have the materials for this special night, the final step is to have the time of your life. Make it a night to remember.
