Wash your hair the night before, use light conditioner if you have extremely coarse frizzy hair. If your hair tends to get oily, washing your hair in the morning will be okay.
If you have oily hair, Do NOT use conditioner and wash your hair morning of your event.

Be sure to blow dry your hair upwards/upside down.
Please have your hair DRY prior to working with us. (we do NOT carry blow dyers or have time scheduled to dry your hair).
