When it comes to updos, please research the salon prior to making an appointment. Not every stylist is an updo extraordinaire.I myself cannot do one to save my life lol. Chances are you will be placed with a brand new stylist if you don’t book far in advance. Be sure to ask for references first. Every salon should have examples of their work. They can be easily emailed or check out the salons Facebook page for pictures of work they have done. At my salon we only allow the stylists who are confident and great do the updos. I also highly recommend getting your make up professionally done for the big night out. With special occasions, you don’t want to leave anything to chance. Not to mention the photos will turn out better and you will feel better about yourself.
