Jessica Hope-Hill provides 8 tips on preparing for hair styling on a shoot

8 things you should do prior to a shoot:

  1. Shampoo and condition hair night before shoot.
  2. If wearing extensions, shampoo and condition night before.
  3. If wearing extensions please be prepared that there may be heated appliances used on these (cannot use heat on synthetic hair extensions)
  4. Be aware that if wearing extensions, there may be back-combing, hairspray, gel etc.. used on these for the required style during the shoot.
  5. Remove extensions night before if you don’t want your extensions handled during styling.
  6. Inform the hair stylist of any skin conditions on your scalp prior to shoot.
  7. Also remember to inform the hair stylist of any allergies to products prior to shoot.
  8. Remember to ask if you want your style to be brushed out at the end of your shoot.

I hope that helps prepare better for a shoot. More from me next week – Jess xo
