When getting your hair styled for an event, whether it is Prom, a wedding, Graduation party, etc., it is recommended that you do not wash your hair on the day of the event. Ideally your hair gets washed the day before your event, so say your event is on a Saturday, wash your hair on Friday morning. Why? The natural oils from the hair will calm down static cling, keep the hair shiny, and allow the hair to hold a style for longer. Even better, if you wash your hair, spray it with hairspray and blow it dry, then you will have a great base to work with to hold your style. Dirty hair is happy hair!
