On Sunday, May 29th, 2016, 30 young South Brevard County Debutantes, including myself, were presented to society in front of their friends and family. The dresses, fashion, and hair is always the talk of the ball!
The Dress. Traditionally, the debutantes wear long white ball gowns accompanied by long white gloves. Essentially, beautiful wedding gowns. Although the girls have to wear white, no two debs look the same. Some opt for the mermaid gown, others for the princess cut. Seeing the sea of white dresses is something truly magical.
The Hair. Of course, the most important. Although there is no restriction on what your hair has to look like, every Deb knows the hair brings the look together. A popular trend some girls take advantage of is hairpieces. Pink Pewter, which is carried in house at Sorelli, has recently come out with a whole line of bridal accessories, perfect for the Deb Ball. From jeweled bobby pins to clip in headbands, these sparkly pieces look good in any hair color, and because you aren’t allowed to wear a tiara, they give that extra sparkle without breaking the rules.
The Jewelry. With complete creative freedom from the Debutante Committee staff, the jewels sparkle extra bright the night of the ball. Let’s start with the earrings. To me, earrings depend on the hair. If you hair is all up, I prefer long, dangly earrings. If your hair is all down, a nice sized stud is more acceptable (especially so it don’t get caught in your hair!). As for necklaces, because we don’t want to take away from the dress, a simple diamond necklace sparkles without stealing the show. Although I myself am a huge fan of statement necklaces, and I have a whole article about them coming next week, the ball isn’t a place for them. As for hand jewelry goes, because we have gloves on, rings are on the difficult side to wear. But bracelets range from big and chunky bangles to small and delicate diamonds, and personally, I don’t think you can go wrong with either.
Sorelli Hair Studio and Spa is a huge supporter of the South Brevard Debutante Program and looks forward to the ball every year! The salon opened the Sunday of the ball at 10:00 am as a private event to ensure each and every Deb and their family attending looks and feels their best!
