    Hair Stylist Robin Harmon discusses accessorizing the straight look for prom.

    Robin Lee Harmon: Hi! I am Robin Lee Harmon with Tangerine Dream Beauty Bar. Today, we are going over looks for prom. What I am going to do now, that we have finished our first look, is I want to show you ways that you can accessorize.

    What we have done is we have sectioned off her hair into ponytails down in the base underneath. We have back combed this top section, smoothed it over. Then we went through the hair and we flat ironed any necessary areas that needed to be smoothed down or turned under. With this look, you can work with headbands, you can even work with buttons that you get from Michael, if you put a hair pin through them. You can work with different headbands that are made of this material.

    What we are going to work with right now are some nice little hair clips that you can get at Claires. These are easy because you can just push them right into the style, you can push them right into the look that we have back combed and they will lock in just perfectly. I am going to just place them randomly. You can even just work with a couple near the part area, just to have a gathering of little clips. Something like that, something simple where you just have one little area that has a little glitter; or we pull these down, you can break them up along the style, just right behind the smooth area, almost like how a headband would work, something like that. So dont be afraid to work with different accessories, just go ahead and place them in. If you dont like them, pull them out and just try something else. There are so many different options out there for you. Even working with straight glitter can be fun as well.

    So this is our first look. Coming up in our next segment, we are going to show you a way of modifying this look. If you dont want have your hair just worn straight down, we can pull it into a nice side ponytail. So we are going to show you how to do that with a look that we have just created.
