Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
Problem is that equipment usage is only half the problem. The photographer need to have some knowledge of fashion photography as it pertains to hairstyle and grounding in professional portraiture is helpful as well. It is important to know how to light hair so that the color/tone, texture and detail is properly rendered. There is a compromise involved because in portraiture t you emphasize the facial features and in a more commercial approach you want to emphasize the hair style. There has to be a mid point where the face is nicely flattered by showing how the hair style brings out the face and at the same time the hairstyle style to show as a “product”.
Check out some of the hairstyle magazines or the posters in the salons- you will notice that theses are professionally done. In competitions, the hairdressers are depending on their photographers for winning images so before undertaking such a job, I would do a bit of soul searching to see if you could step up to the plate a do a good representation for your client.
Again- it is not only a matter of what camera, lens, or lighting gear that you may use- it is more a matter of your skill in placing theses lights and understand exactly how to pose your model.
Good Luck- Ed

Fifi a external flash with a umbrela to rebound light off may also be a good idea. Though remember alot of what makes a good photo is the compersition, as an artist I am sure you can handle a good compersition. So try not to stress, relax and enjoy the shoot.
