The Ultimate Prom Guide for Dudes


Prom is on the calendar, so what’s the next step? There’s plenty of time to decide your style for the most important night of the year. From hairstyles to shoes, we’ve got you covered with the Ultimate Prom Guide for Dudes!

Suit Up!

Since you may be renting a suit, it’s a good idea to pick out your clothing first! If you have a date, be sure to coordinate colors with them so you show up looking great together. If you’re going with a group, this can be a perfect opportunity to showcase your style without worrying about coordinating!

So, first thing’s first, start with the tuxedo and go from there. How formal do you want to be? What’s the weather going to be like? Take these questions into consideration when picking out a tuxedo, because this is the part of your outfit that makes the biggest statement. From there, work your way into shirt and tie styles. We’re personally big fans of contrasting colors like red, black, and white.

Shoes are the last step! Dress shoes are worth the investment because most styles will stay in fashion for quite a few years. Start with a color that complements your suit, and then pick a style that feels right for you!

Make an Appointment

Once your outfit is sorted, the last step is hair! Make an appointment at your local Hair Professionals Career College* and talk to your stylist to see what looks best for your hair texture and thickness. When it’s an event as important as prom, you don’t want to leave your hair to chance. Make an appointment ahead of time so you won’t have to worry about it at the last minute, and don’t forget to have fun!
