I actually just scheduled my hair appointment for my e-pics.  I’m going to a school so it’s only costing me $6.  If you have one in your area it might be worth it just to avoid the stress of doing it yourself.

I wouldnt do it much different than you would everyday.. Like I normally wear mine down straight or curled.. I will prolly have it curled in the e pics.

I wore mine down and straight and also brought a brush. Which was a good thing because it was really windy during our pictures!

I wore mine down for half the photos, then put it half up for the rest of the photos – just to have some different options.  I’m really happy I did 2 different styles!  To echo everyone else, bring a brush for sure!

@Petunia123: I wore mine down, however, I have one warning, I have long hair, and at the time, side swoop bangs.  It was windy out, and that def caused problems with some of the shots.  As, I had my head at odd angles now and again, tryign to fight the wind from blowing my hair around.  Idk if I would have done it any differently, all I am saying is it could result in less ‘usable’ images.  I know it did for me.

Haha mine are today, and I opened this thread, immediately realized I needed to shower so it would dry in time, and just came back to read and respond.

I have super curly hair, and usually the curls are nice but disorganized.  If I put in effort to spend 15 minutes twirling all the curls around my finger, then end up more organized in ringlets.  So that’s what I did today – basically my regular style, but a little neater.  We’re also going to be outside, but I can’t exactly brush my curly hair, so I’m hoping it’s not horribly windy.  Luckily it’s a beautiful cloudless day, there’s fresh snow everywhere, and it’s about 45 degrees.  So even though we’ll be chilly in our light sweaters, I think we’re going to get gorgeous pics!

 

ETA – I think I’ll bring bobby pins, so if it’s windy I can put my hair back a little.  Frankly, it might be nice to have the different style regardless, so we’ll see.

I went to my hairdresser. She curled my hair and told me that when I am about to leave to give it a shake. It looked really nice and natural in our pictures
