So the 16 year told told me a few months ago she is having a “prom”. (FYI: The 16 year old is my cousin NOT my child).
Proms? I know they are big in the USA but in the UK? A Prom? Really?
Yes really. Since then the teen has ordered a custom made dress, bought sky high heels and now I have been bullied…asked….to do her hair and make up.
The last place I worked, a lady there, who I adored, would always tell me about her daughter who she’d spend £100s on for her prom – fake tan, fake nails, hair extensions, hair do, a limo for the night. I argued with her that a 16 year old surely shouldn’t look ‘sexy’ and was setting themselves up for a lifetime of vanity but she said this was perfectly acceptable and since I wasn’t a mother yet I didn’t understandddddd.
All I can picture is this:
No comment. Seriously.
Anyway guys, help me out. What can I do with her hair and make up with my limited skills? Bearing in mind that she wants is SEMI-TACKY. What do I mean by that? Well if she was my 16 year old I see maybe a loose curl in the hair and some tinted lip gloss and a bit of mascara.
But these 16 year olds don’t want to look 16, they want fake lashes, they want bronzer…it’s her prom, I’ll give her what she wants but any advice? Tell me in the comments!
