Teen Beauty Pageant Tips

Look and feel your best

Look and feel your best

Whether you’re a seasoned pageant veteran or a new kid on the block, there are a few things that you should always keep in mind when you’re competing in a pageant.  Here at Dress Prom, we want you to do your best—and that all starts on the inside.

  • First of all, keep smiling!  Not only do you feel better when you smile, you don’t want to get caught with a grumpy look on your face.
  • Be bright and bubbly.  Even if you don’t win the pageant, there’s always Miss Congeniality.  (And that might get you further in life!  Everyone loves a friendly woman.)
  • Keep your attire age appropriate.  Don’t try and act or dress older than you are.  You’re a teen—it’s time to have fun.
  • Don’t stand with your arms hanging down and your hands holding each other in front.  That doesn’t look professional—and the judges will point that out.
  • Remember your posture.  Keep your head up and your shoulders back.  It’s a good idea to pretend you’re hanging from a hook on the back of your neck.  If you’re confident on the inside, it will show on the outside!
  • Make friends with the other contestants.  It’s helpful to make friends and network.
  • Don’t wear too much makeup.  Wear enough that it shows up under the lights, but don’t cake it on.
  • Have extra pageant gowns and pageant dresses.  You never know what might happen.

Have fun!
