✖️ •Somewhere somehow this statement has gotten turned into girls having super greasy 4 day old hair and I just wanna break down the updo rules real quick.
✖️Chances are the stylist doing your hair actually wants you to have CLEAN DRY HAIR.
✖️By “Dirty” - WE MEAN , wash it the day before.
✖️Day before hair is PERFECT. There is enough oils for the style to hold but not too much where we have to use a can of dry shampoo so your root doesn’t look greasy AF.
✖️There are so many products & “dirty sprays” that we can make your hair feel as ‘dirty’ as we need it too according to the style you choose.
✖️No one in the room wants to smell your greasy hair getting all heated up with the iron (sorry but it’s true😂)
✖️YOU know your hair - if it gets oily really fast and you wash your hair every single day then by all means wash it that morning but blow dry it so your stylist doesn’t have to.
✖️If you wash your hair once a week you MIGHT be able to get away with doing it 2 days before (example: i could wash my hair 2 days before because my hair is bleached out and dry AF)
✖️DONT straighten your hair before you get an updo- no reason to straighten it before it gets curled- the curl won’t stay- make sense ?
✖️If the style you’re going for is super beachy & textured chances are you should just blow dry your root and let your ends air dry or just rough dry it with no brush so you’re not taking any of the wave out!
✖️If the style you’re going for is very smooth and sleek chances are you should blow it out first !

Summary : don’t have dirty dirty hair for your updo appointment. 🙃


My client came in with a hat on when she took it off she had random blonde streaks throughout her hair. She told me she wanted the ombré look and did get it and was ready to go back to her natural because she didn’t get what she originally wanted (from a different salon). I informed her that her goal was achievable. I brought down her root and balayage to blend the rest of the random streaks of blonde together then toned. Her reaction and happiness is the exact reason why I do this •
