hair pieces youíll be using. You want to know exactly what your

have photos of your hair run through. Bring a camera to your
practice run and have the stylist or a friend take a few pictures of
the finished product. Get photos from a variety of angles (i.e.
front, back, side) and youíll know exactly what your hair will look
like on your wedding day.
