I’m going to try! Most hairdressers don’t know how to handle my curly 3b hair, and I really don’t want to put my trust in one on my wedding day, of all days. I also don’t want to be out $$ after a trial-gone-wrong. I style my own hair every day, give myself regular trims, and I haven’t seen a hairdresser in almost 3 years. I feel like my chances of getting exactly what I want are much higher if I just do it myself. It sounds like you’re feeling the same way, so I say practice on getting it exactly how you want it and go for it!

I did my own hair for my wedding and I don’t regret it. I didn’t do a full updo like what you are thinking to do but from my experience, I would highly recomend practicing what you want to do a few times, see how long it takes you to do it, see how it lasts through the day, etc. I had my sister help me and we practiced together a few times to make sure we could get everything in place for the day. It saved me about $300 so I have no regrets at all!

My sister will be helping me with my hair.  I figured it would be more fun to hang out at my parents house for the wedding and just have bonding time with her.

I’m not AA but I have an insane amount of very curly, coarse hair. I spent my entire hair budget on trials before I gave up and styled my own hair. Just make sure to practice a LOT, and take pictures/notes of how you did it.

My stylist spazzed the day before my wedding when I showed up for my appointment, so I wound up doing my my own hair-it came out fine. Do trials and leave time. I have locs and because it was unxpected, I had to sit under the dryer the day of for it to dry….
