First time, yes, second time no. First and foremost they recommend that you do not wash your hair before going. So obviously this can be a personal problem a day or too after getting the styling done! I have baby fine hair but is is shoulder length. My hair must have had 1000 bobby pins in it to hold the do together plus tons of hair spray. Now I usually bring hair extensions or pieces and do my own updo! Have a great time. It is nice to treat yourself to a special new look once and awhile.
