Hi Ladies biggrin.gif

I am really want my hair half down half up IYKWIM think the same as the girl on the front of the latest Co$mopol!t@n Br!de.

Now it's really loose curls so I was wondering if I should get my hair permed loosely a month before so all the hair stylist has to do is draw it back and set it? Or do I just leave it straight and get them to curl it on the day?

Any help suggestions would be appreciated.

I am having a very similar style to what you are talking about.

It depends on how well your hair takes to a perm...

My hair curls up straight away in really tight curls no matter what they do. So I will probably get them to set mine the day of the wedding and then put the hair up in loose curls...

If your hair drops out of set curls quickly I would probably get the perm prior to the wedding...

Sorry if this isnt of much help. At this stage if you are not sure I would suggest talking to your hairdresser as to the best way for your hair.

I'd be very wary of getting any kind of dramatic process done to your hair before your wedding - if there's a disaster you don't have much time to fix it. Perms are pretty hard to get rid of too, without kind of wrecking your hair.

I think you should be able to get the hairdresser to curl your hair and use product to stop it falling out without needing to get a perm.

I hate to say it, but don't go for the perm. To be honest, it will dry out your hair and if you really hate it then the only answer afterwards is to have it chemically straightened - yet more processes that you have to put your hair through. ohmy.gif Besides, for your hair to look like it has that 'natural' curl it will take more than 4 weeks for it to 'drop'. I hope you understand what I mean by that. Go to the hairdresser take the picture with you and explain to him/her the look you are trying to achieve. Being an up-do, you washing you hair the day of, will be a no-no, as up-do's generally don't take very successful as the hair is so clean. It needs to be a little 'dirty' for it to have staying power. wink.gif

I would however, suggest having your hair coloured as it will give it an extra dimension. If your h/d uses l'oreal products I would go for a semi permanent, ask for a colour shines treatment as well as this will set the colour deeply for a rich look and lasting shine, an voila! your hair will be super shiny and glossy looking. tongue.gif

Curling hair with heated rollers and tongs is a much better way to go, it's amazing what a bit of product and some elbow grease can do these days...

Let me know what you think.

Happy hair...

Thanks for the suggestions biggrin.gif

I have had a perm before years ago and was really happy with it and FH and I actually got together with my hair like that and he loves it. I was actually born with really curly hair but after my grandfather passed away my hair started falling out sad.gif I now have wavy hair so perms usually take well but go quite curly and take a week or two to loosen.

I think I will take the advice and go and see a hairdresser hmm now I just need to find a good one.

You have another option.

Wet Set your hair. Talk to your hairdresser about this.

Basically you set your hair in rollers while it's wet, with some 'setting' lotion and then dry it under a dryer.

The curl lasts MUCH longer than if you use hot rollers or tongs..

I do not recommend getting it done the morning of the wedding. I was BM for my cousin and she wanted curly hair for us. I was the only one with straight hair, and I spent forever (it felt like that) under a dryer, ended up with a headache and sore head afterwards. Definitely did not feel like being a bm after that!!!

My curls had to be brushed out at 2am....and Kat rolled my hair around 8.30am! Whatever that setting lotion is, it's great. And it brushed out easily so I was a very happy bride. biggrin.gif

PS My hair is actually straight and doesn't normally hold a curl for that long....going by the other weddings I've been a BM for that have required curled hair.

Umm.. unless you're gonna sit up all night so you don't muss you hair up.. there's no real other time to do it...

Trust me..

I had myself propped up one night IN rollers, so that I could have the morning without them so I didn't get a headache..

guess what..

I didn't get any sleep...

Most hair should only take 45mins - 1hr to dry under a proper hair dryer (kinda looks like a shower cap.. it's really good). My hair retains water, and takes forever to dry... I'm done in 45 mins....

Oh, and Kat.. I would LOVE the name of the setting lotion you use.. the one I use is discontinued.. sad.gif

I too would also be very interested in the name of that majic setting lotion!!!!!!!
I have fine, straight, blonde hair, so too much product usually leave it heavy and dirty looking and "crispy". Love curls!

Oh my lol Portess I thought I was one of the only people with water retaining hair it's terrible. I washed my hair and went to the shops (this was nearly 2 hours after my shower) and the lady asked me if it was raining outside blink.gif

blink.gif Dont know whether this is the right rule or not but seeing so I do advertise in here and use this product I will mention it!!!

Its Brand Name is SO Salon Only. Product Name is Heat and Style (Heat Appliance Style Control). ITs for all types of Hair and Its pink in colour. Remember to shake the spray bottle as it separates when sitting. I get it in bulk form of 5litre bottles but you can buy it from salons in a 250ml spray bottle. I get it wholesale so I dont know what salons out there are charging for it retail. Usually the beauty industry is a 100% markup which is criminal!!!!

All my brides on Ido have had this product and it smells great too!!!!!!

Directions are: Spray into clean towel dried hair and style using favourite appliance. Most of my brides are dry sprayed and I set them in cold rollers (glorious look they say) and I set them under my quiet dryer for 15 - 20 minutes then I let them walk around for about 2 hours and then I undo and upstyle. It dries loose so it isnt sticky and as Mrs S said it just brushes out!!!!!!! For faster sets use a hot tongs or hot rollers!!!!!!

If you look at Hipsters wedding shots her hair was loosely down and pinned up and I understand her hair lasted all day and night!!!

THis is also Australian Owned and Australian Made and its Natural Organic Ingredients. Hope this helps and I apologise for breaking any rules!!!! but too many people want PMs and Im on too many drugs straight after knee surgery!!! So thats my excuse!!!!!

Hugs
Kat

Do people still get perms these days???

Unless the process has dramatically changed since the early 90s I would advise avoiding a perm altogether. Your hair may dry out and become brittle and frizzy as a result.

You would be better off choosing a style and "reinforcing" it with a good curl holder product or having a pinned curl style that won't drop.

You don't want frizzy dry permed hair being a lasting memory of your wedding biggrin.gif
