Consider hiring your stylist to come to you at your location on the day of the wedding. This is yet another way to take more stress out of your day. Reduce the risk of having to organize people to get to yet another location and then back again. I love to travel to the bride; it gets me out of the salon for a day and off to some pretty gorgeous locations. Hiring your stylist to come to you is a bit more expensive than going into the salon, but well worth every penny. Consider that you are paying for the convenience, their travel time and the fact that the stylist is pulled out of the salon for the day and therefore has to be able to bring in the same money they would in salon at the least. You also have the option (with your stylist at your spot) to change it up and maybe sport two wedding hairstyles (one for ceremony and one for reception) as well as having the stylist there for last minute touch ups once you are dressed and ready to roll.
There is something that I like to call the “Oh crap” moment that happened to all of us and most likely will happen to you. This really is the whole reason for my writing this article today. I wanted to prepare you for it and to reassure you that it will happen and it really is going to be OK. Almost every bride has her "Oh crap" moment in my chair. Why? I think it is because once I sit you down to do your hair, you are stuck in that seat (usually staring at yourself in a mirror) until I am done and the mind starts racing. An "Oh crap" moment isn't a bad moment, and usually is just that "I am getting married today” feeling. After all, this is the day that us girls dream about our whole lives. Nonetheless, it can be overwhelming. I know how to handle it and recognize it immediately. I reassure her that she is not the first to feel this way (it happened to me too on my day), and she won't be the last. The best part about the "Oh crap" moment is seeing her get past that and just become overjoyed and literally glowing.
