    I'm hiring a pro. My hair is really curly and I have a summer wedding. I am worried about the humidity.

    This one will definitely be pro. Thankfully though, I have a friend who does hair and she has already agreed to do mine.

    I’m a makeup artist, but I have absolutely no idea how to do my own hair! Lol. So definitely will be hiring a pro. One of my bridesmaid is a hair stylist, so I’m gonna see if she could do it!

    100% hired a pro, I suck at hair and have three styles at most.

    I did my own and actually didn't regret that. I just wore it down with loose curls, and I know my hair well enough to have used the right amount of heat and styling products to make the curls last. If I had wanted a more complicated style, I definitely would've gone with a pro.

    Pro is a must. I want something a little more than curls.

    Pro! Setting curls, teasing hair, and excessive bobby pins are my downfall.

    Pro for sure! Already did the trial and it went really well. My hair is too long, and my design is way past my skills. It includes tight braiding and waterfall braids. Also all the curling, which I’ve never done. The best I can do on my own is look nice as a guest lol. I hired a pro to do myself and the bridesmaids.

    DIY I style my hair all the time and what I want is pretty simple.

    This one was pro for sure, no thinking about it! Unlike makeup, hair is a big priority to me. I love having my hair done well. And my hair isn’t super easy to work with, so it’s difficult for me to even do simpler nice styles. This was the only vendor that I hired without caring about the price.

    Pro, must likely. My mom is a hairstylist and if she doesn’t do it (long story) I have a huge problem. I have veryyyyy curly hair (4c) and can never do a good job with my own hair. Another option, My sister can straight it for me and then try to do an updo. I’ll pray so my mom does it for me lol.

    Pro. Even if I could do it, I'd want to be as relaxed as possible on my wedding day.
