They should be able to “dirty” your hair a little bit if it’s freshly washed–sprays to give it texture, backcombing, etc. It’s extra work for them, but it’s not impossible. You could wash that morning and use a little bit of spray, then flat-iron so their workload is minimized. But seriously, $80 for flatironing is insane.

@yassim: The not washing your hair for 24 hrs makes sense. Dirty hair holds better than clean hair.

Are you doing a hair trial? You could ask for your specific hair type and style if it MUST be dirty.

Also, I’m thinking with the flatiron they mean if you have naturally curly hair and want it made straight for your wedding day, but again, ask them when you do your hair trial.

I understand, because I have to wash my hair everyday. So I had a updo and wash my hair that morning. My hairdresser had some stuff that dirtied up my hair which worked pretty well. Also, I had all my hair and makeup done before the photographer came. The photographer took pictures of my putting on my dress, shoes, lip gloss etc. I think that is pretty typical for “getting ready” photos

I don’t understand the whole dirty hair holding better than clean hair.  My hair only holds a curl if it’s freshly washed.  If I try putting a curling iron to it more than 10 hours after a wash, I’d get NOTHING.

I don’t know how long your hair is, but mine was long and thick and it took two hours for a simple side-bun with some curls. It seems crazy that they think they can fit your hair and everyone else’s into that slot…unless they have a second person, and one person will be working JUST on you.
