How To: Preparing Your Hair For the Perfect Style
“To wash, or not to wash?”
So, everyone has heard that dirty hair is better for styling updos. Here is my opinion on what you should do on or before the big day.
If you wash your hair EVERYDAY, then wash your hair the morning of, hours before your appointment, then dry COMPLETELY.
If you don’t wash your hair everyday, wash your hair the day before. 2-3 day old hair is not good. Dry shampoo can always be added if it a tad dirty but a greasy mess is never a good thing.
Preparing your hair:
COME TO YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH COMPLETELY DRY HAIR!
I cannot stress that enough. Time is ALWAYS of essence, on your wedding day and to your stylist. It is also best to add a little product to your damp hair before you dry it (gel or thermal protectant is always a good idea).
Part your hair where you want it and dry it that way. You can achieve more volume when drying your hair with your head up-side-down. Also, if you want to include your natural curl, use a diffusor when drying or allow to air-dry COMPLETELY. Again, make sure to add product to control frizz.
