cvaldes13:  whatever you do, make sure it looks and feels natural to you. You don’t want to look back and hate the photos because you don’t look like yourself. 

Also, my hair will not hold curl. Like at all. The one tool I have found that I used when I worked in a salon was Enzo Milano. Seriously. I sold the shit out of those wands because they held curl on my heavy stick straight hair! 

So ask if the stylist has one of those OR buy one yourself! And not just any curling wand will do. Enzo Milano is hands down the best, the original, and it will not get any better than that! Check out YouTube for their amazing videos.

You won’t be disappointed!

If you do the 10 a.m. with the pro, the worst-case scenario is that is doesn’t hold, right? So, if, after lunch or whatever you realize that it’s simply not going to make it to your 4:15 pic session, can’t you still go with your backup plan and either DIY or touchup what the pro did for you?

I, too, have a hair-IQ of nothing, so maybe I’m way off, but I figure that’s what I’d do.

I’d go for it with the professional! My hair is also difficult to curl and I’m actually attempting it (professinally) for my wedding day – gah I know i’m crazy! If the curls fall out you can always touch it up yourself or pin it back. I think curls can look lovely when they fall out too and become more like waves.

My hair is also very hard to curl (well, easy to curl but the curls soon fall flat), but I have found that my curls stay all day when a clipless culring wand is used instead of a regular curling iron. Most of my friends who curl their hair also find a wand far superior. Do you know what this woman will be using?

you can get a slumber net…its like one of the hair nets they use in the kitchen but not as stiff, very loose with a lot of holes, practically its like a bun net only larger, put your hair ready made curled inside the net, pin it and remove it just before the shoot. Your hair should have remained he same as if you just left the hairdresser’s!

Since it’s still the same day, and the hairstylist is a professional, she should be able to estimate forward how much she should “overdo” it on the curl & hairspray in order to have it be perfect at 4:15. If all else fails, go the DIY route and touch it up.
