If you can, I’d try for midday…10am is probably a little premature.

My hair does not hold curl very well so I would have scheduled it for 12 or later.  Maybe ask her if she can do it right before the formal pictures so your hair will be freshly done and ready for pics.  If you do it at 10 it will have been 7 hours until the ceremony, plenty of time for hair to fall flat.

It really depends a lot on your hair and how it reacts to styling.  Mine is curly to begin with, so if I had a half-up style with curling-iron curls, the curls would hold until they washed out!  If, however, I had my hair straightened at 10 AM, it would be frizzy and poodle-ish by that evening unless I had it touched up.  If your hair is thick, straight, and heavy, it’s VERY unlikely that it would hold curls for that long.  If it’s lighter and has a bit of a wave, it may work.

When I made my hair appointment I was told that most brides make their appointments for 8 or 9 am.  i went for the 9 am one.  Are you having a hair trail?  If you are see how long they will stay in.

I did a full updo, curls – and may hair cannot hold a curl longer than 5 minutes. My appt was at 9am, in and out of there by 10:30 (and that was 3 stylists and 6 girls – so YES they rocked!) and our ceremony started at 6pm. Mine help up very well. It didnt start falling until we tore up the dance floor about 9pm. But by then, I was married and formals had been done.

I would suggest doing a trial run though. Using the same timeline and going about your day as you would normally – just to see how your hair holds up.
