Chocolate Brides hair help

Recommended Posts

Has anyone gotten their hair done at Renova Spa. I am wanting to get a roller set but I am not sure if they do those....If so, what kind of products do they use...Did your hair hold up in the humidity?

Hi latrice, I was at my friend's wedding at ROR last month and she got her hair done at Renova. She wanted a roller set also but they told her they don't do that there. But, they are experienced with all hair types and did a really good job. They used a hot iron to do an up-do with curls at the back, and the curls held up all night and looked great.

Thanks for the info. I plan to have my hair done by them as well. I figured they'd know how to handle it. Still deciding on a style though!

I have the roller set thing mastered. If you know how to set your own hair, you can perhaps set it yourself and use their hair dryer (so you don't have to pack your own) and have them pin it up or style it for you. My curls tend to stay longer when I set my hair.

 

Also, I read in one of my DW books that you should walk with your own products - shampoo, setting lotion, etc. This goes for make up too. Don't assume they have the products you want them to use.

 

As far as the humidity, Houston is a very humid place too. I was in a wedding last year and my stylist did a roller set and then when through each curl w/ a chi iron. Those curls were adorable and they lasted 3 or 4 days.

 

 

 

Hope this helps.

 

Good luck to you.

Thanks for the info, I was wondering if I should bring my own products....I think they use Redken, which I've never used. Unfortunately, I don't know how to roller set my hair...my hair doesnt hold curls well at all, so a roller set would have worked best for me...

I would recommend sending prior to and also bring a sample photo of the style you want. They really do a great job with your hair. BTW Redken is an awesome product line.

Do you have anyone in your family or someone you trust who could roller set your hair? If you do--you should do a test run before you go to jamaica and see how it works out.Its really not difficult--the hard part is spending all that time under the dryer! That way you can test out products to see which ones are going to work best for you (if you don't already know). I'm like you, curls DO NOT hold well in my hair. I have a lot of hair but its not very thick and curls never last more than 5 minutes in humidity! I am definitely doing a roller set--especially considering my hair will already be wet from swimming.I would take my own products if I were you or at least try out Redken before you go. I used Redken before and was not impressed. It didn't really seem tailored to black hair.

I think I am going to take my own products. I know what works good in my hair....Will I have to bring my own rollers? Or do they have those. When I asked Paula, she swore they did roller sets under the dryer, but from what I've heard here is that is not really the case.....I really need to find some pictures of styles I like. I feel so slack, I haven't even confirmed flowers... :-/

The trick for me is to use noodles. That's the only way Iknow how to set my hair. They come in several different colors. You roll your hair at an angle on them and bend them. I use Kera Care setting loating followed by foam wrap before setting my hair and the set lasts forever.

 

Try looking at essence.com for roller sets or google a celebrity and get pics from there if there are any that you like. Good luck.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
