Some “Do’s” and “Don’ts” for Picking a Wedding Day Salon

Is your wedding day fast approaching or you just said “Yes”? Right now you may be overwhelmed by what you should do when picking a salon for you and your bridal party. Here is a quick list of the “Do’s” and “Don’ts” when picking your wedding day salon.

  1. DO: the Research: Research online and check out the reviews and listen to what others have said about their experiences. Research all the companies that will be assisting you on your wedding day. Obviously people that have gone to a salon know what that salon has to offer, they have experienced the environment of the salon first hand. These people can give you feedback if the salon is professional, clean, efficient, and stylish and if they will be the right fit for your wedding day.
  2. DON’T: have a family or friend do your wedding day hair and makeup for you and your bridal party. It sounds nice to go to somebody you know, but sometimes it’s not that simple. It has been my experience that seven to eight times out of ten, the friend or family member backs out of their commitment. Most of the time it is last minute, leaving the bride hectically trying to find a new salon to take their place. This isn’t too ideal for you or your bridal party, staying away from the family/friend salon can eliminate the stress
  3. DO: Set up a consultation. When it comes to picking the salon in which you are gettingyour wedding day pampering in, set up a consultation with their bridal coordinator. This way you can experience the salon atmosphere and see if they offer what you are looking for. It is so important to feel comfortable in your salon, especially on your wedding day
  4. DON’T: go with the cheaper salon. You usually pay for what you get. Do research oncompetitive hair and makeup pricing that is relative to your area. You might be paying a little more to go to a higher end salon. Higher end salons can have higher rates because they have earned the right to set higher rates by making their client’s wedding day experience go flawlessly. Not only will you and your bridal party look great, but you will also feel relaxed on your perfect day.
