Wanting the lowdown on school balls? Our in-house expert gave us her top tips:
Looking back on my last three years at high school, I distinctly remember that overwhelming feeling of excitement and, of course, stress amongst all us girls leading up to the annual school ball. It was crucial to find that perfect dress, perfect shoes and last but not least a makeup artist that could replicate the same look done on our favourite Victoria Secret models.
Can’t be that hard right?
Believe it or not, I never ended up looking like GiGi Hadid so I guess that answers your question.
My advice to you is to always try before you buy – 9 times out of 10 you will be disappointed. It always pays to go down to the local boutique type shops and have a look around before you end up with a dress that fits here but not there and isn’t quite the right length.
Which is why I recommend Glamour Boutique in Newmarket as an absolute must for school balls and any other events you may have on, not only can you get the dress, the hair, the makeup but you will also receive the ultimate shopping experience when being consulted with a stylist, and this is all done in store! Your time is precious so don’t spend all day racing around the city to make it to your appointments, no one wants to be stressed out on the day that’s meant to be the highlight of the school year.
Glamour Boutique is also situated in the heart of Newmarket which makes it super easy to shop around for all your ball necessities such as the accessories that are really going to make you stand out, that handy mini hairspray to keep your hair looking beautifully lush or even a wee clutch to tie your outfit together.
