I am the absolute least hair-savvy person there is. My normal hair routine goes like this: wash hair, wrap in towel, unwrap from towel, leave house. Next day: put hair in ponytail. Repeat. When I try to blowdry it I end up with hair that is frizzy, hot, and still mostly wet. On a normal day my hair looks fine and it’s not something I’m too concerned about. But for my engagement photos I want it to look sleek and nice, so I was going to go get it blown out. But our session is at 7:30 in the morning and no salon will be open that early. Will I be okay getting it blown out the night before? Any tips for sleeping on my hair so it doesn’t frizz over night?

I think it should be okay….but here’s what I’d do.
First, don’t wash your hair the day before until right before the blow out! So it’ll be as clean and “fresh” as possible for the photos.
Second…maybe buy one of those old lady sleep caps, so it stays somewhat contained while you sleep, and doesn’t get frizzy/greasy. (I know that my hair will get greasy if it is not in a ponytail and I sleep on it, because I load up my face with lotion at night!) Oh, don’t put it in a ponytail! You’ll have a big bend in it in the morning.
Third…buy some dry shampoo (just to give it some ooomph) and fluff it in the morning. Then flat iron any bendy/frizzy bits.
Should look good 🙂

Salons frequently open early for special occasion stylists. The stylist for our wedding arrived at my hotel room at 6:45am! You might see if you can find one in your area that could do a blowout for you early in the morning.

@Dialysate: I don’t actually have a flat iron. Or a curling iron. Or an anything-other-than-a-clothes-iron.

@luluvohn: Haha my mom used to iron her hair in the 70s… with a legit iron. I thought this was hilarious but hey, her naturally curly hair was straight in pictures from that time!
