- Wedding: June 2013
I have naturally curly hair (Type 3A) – a really unpredictable kind – and I get so nervous when I think about my wedding day hair. The only time I’ve EVER gotten my hair done in a salon was in freshman year of highschool when they gave me a horrendously frizzy poodle updo for prom… I’m sure the stylist knew nothing of curly hair. Originally I was just going to have my friend straighten my hair for my wedding, but I decided I wasn’t loving the look, and I think I’d rather put it in a professional’s hands so I don’t have to worry about it.
I know I don’t want a complete updo, so I’m looking for a stylist who really knows curly hair. (I’d love to somehow transform the curls into soft waves, and/or maybe do half up/half down, or something to one side). But no matter what I do, I know my hair can’t just be left as-is (texture/frizz-wise) and then styled… at least, not without great risk, haha.
My wedding’s in Providence and I live in Central MA… can anyone recommend a nearby salon that works miracles with naturally curly hair? Where are you getting your hair done?
