Clear the way, because prom season has landed. Sure, there are plenty of highlights over the years in high school, but prom certainly takes the cake. Whether you're going solo, with your high school sweetheart, or with your BFF crew, prom will be full of so many unforgettable memories. Between getting ready and taking pictures on the lawn, prom day can be pretty hectic, so you'll need prom hair and makeup captions well in advance. Once you snap some solid prom makeup pictures for the 'Gram, you'll have a ton of glam captions to choose from, and posting your pictures will be a stress-free breeze.

You only get to do your prom once, so you want to look your best in a dress and prom hairstyle that are totally up your alley. Even if you aren't sporting sequins and glitter from head to toe, you want to feel like you're sparkling from the inside out. Getting your prom hair and makeup done will be a time to reflect on everything up until that very moment. High school was filled with a ton of drama at times, but as you approach the homestretch, the end of those four years will really start to sink in.

As much as prom will be an epic time spent with your high school besties, it marks the beginning of a new chapter of your life. So, while you're getting as glamorous as can be on one of the fanciest nights of high school, pair your prom hair and makeup pics with a caption that ties everything together. However, let’s be real: when you look back on prom, you probably won't remember how on point your winged eyeliner was or how flawless your prom hairstyle looked in your pictures. You'll just remember how much you wished that one night could have lasted forever.
