Whether this is your first formal updo or your tenth, there are things you’ll need to know about caring for your hair before coming in for your appointment. Prom is such an exciting time, and we want you to be fully satisfied with how your hair turns out. Follow these tips, and you’ll be set up for an updo that’ll withstand a whole night of dancing.
Practice Good Hair Care
Be sure to continue your regular haircuts or trims every four to six weeks. Split ends can be disastrous to a formal hairstyle, so it will definitely be worth keeping up on your appointments. Consider some deep conditioners in the weeks before your updo to keep the hair healthy and strong.
Don’t Wash Your Hair Right Before Your Appointment
Clean hair can be difficult to work with, so it’s important not to wash too soon before your appointment. As for exactly when to wash, you’ll have to be the judge of that according to the type of hair you have. You don’t want your hair to be greasy, so don’t go days without washing. Along with that, be sure that your hair isn’t wet when you arrive. The texture and volume of your hair changes as it dries, so an updo with wet hair won’t last as long.
Place Your Part
If you know where you’ll want your hair parted for your updo, create this part while the hair is still wet. It can be difficult to create a new part once the hair has already dried.
Have some pictures gathered for inspiration for your stylist. Remember that hair types can be very different, so your hair may not look exactly like the picture that you bring in if you don’t have the same type of hair as the model.
Talk to Your Stylist
If you have any specific questions about products to use or to avoid before your updo, reach out to your stylist. He or she will be able to give you the best advice about the type of hair products that are easiest to work with.
