Black Brides/curly Brides- hair w/ destination wedding

Karly, on July 6, 2020 at 12:28 PM Posted in Hair and Makeup 0 7
Black Brides & textured hair brides- I need advice! I’m doing a destination wedding and I need some advice. Before I leave , I’m getting my hair done by my stylist. My hair can last up to two weeks in good shape if I sleep in rollers. Should I book a hair stylist for when I get there to touch up my hair ? I’m concerned that none of the hairstylists there will really know how to handle textured hair. I was planning on just wearing it down. Has anyone else gotten their hair done before leaving for a destination wedding? Thoughts/advice?

    Would anybody in your wedding party or guest be willing to help? I know the struggles of our hair and also the importance of having the right people with the right skills do it. I think your hair will be fine. But, if you need a touch up and don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself - checking in with your wedding party or guests may help.

    I agree with the Brandi. I would see if anyone in my wedding party can do the touch ups if needed. And I would be sure to choose a style that I don't have worry about doing a lot to maintain.

    I have trouble with my thin curly hair and I am having a beach ceremony. I prefer not to have an updo, but I worried my stylist don’t know what she is dealing with. Years ago I went out from a salon into a windy humid outdoor, and 5-15 minutes later.... “puff”!!! I looked almost like I just woke up 😩

    So, my friend suggested me to send my bad hair day picture to my hair stylist to give her a visual “warning”, and I did 🤣. She said she knows my hair type and will provide the best stuff for me. Let’s see....

    How many days between you getting your hair done and your wedding day? maybe you can start researching stylist local to your destination so that you will feel more comfortable versus going in blind and hoping for the best.

    How are you getting your hair done before you leave? Are you natural or permed? Do you have extensions? If your hair is straightened or permed, I think any stylist can touch it up as long as you make that clear at your appointment. If it's any other style, I would have you (and your friend/family member/guest who can help) practice before you leave so you'll have realistic expectations on how it'll look on your wedding day.

    My hair is naturally curly, and I wouldn’t let someone I don’t know go near my hair. Stylists who know how to handle curls are so hard to find, and I’d be worried about taking that risk on such an important day. Would you have time to fix it if the stylist messed it up?

    I would check with wedding party if they’re able to do touch ups. I would plan for a plan B style that’ll be easy to do in case you or someone at the wedding will need to do some magic yourself/themself.
