I would tend to trust that if they say they can do the hair, they can. As long as we’re not talking chemicals she should be fine. It shouldn’t be a big deal if her hair is already relaxed as long as they have a hot flat iron and know how to use it. If she has a natural style with a coarse texture and it needs to be straightened, someone not familiar may have a hard time, so as you ask around be sure to tell them that. How about trying Yelp to see if any if these places have reviews by African American customers? Some places have a designated stylist on staff for African American hair.

Another option is to have her go to her own stylist for wash and flat iron first, then she can join you all for styling. This may be a good compromise to run by her.

@DallastoAustin:  I agree with PP. I have a natural texture so when this situation arises I just wash and straighten it myself and go wherever the bride asks to style it.
