I used to go here for haircuts in my undergrad years because they were so cheap – but it took like four hours! They always did a good job but I am a little nervous for my wedding since timing is so key. Anyone else have experiences there?

I’ve gone for haircuts at the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis, and they’ve always done a good job but like you said, it can take an hour or more. I would just make an appointment for a trial and see how it goes, and how long it takes, just like at any other salon. I’m sure you can request to see the same student for the day-of, if it goes well.
If it takes too long, at least it probably won’t be that pricey for the trial.

I personally think that while the price is right, it just takes way too long. For my wedding day hair, I’d go with reliability over cost, personally.

If you can allot a little extra time and/or don’t have a crazy complicated updo, I think it’s a great option. They’re usually only like $25-$35. Although, my SIL’s salon only charges about $80 for an updo, so do some cost comparisons. And i’d be sure to book with one of the more experienced students. I currently attend a hair school for highlights (it’s hard to be $35…) but if i don’t specifically request one, i get a new person who says, “how do i mix up the colors???” and slops the color all over my face.

I am going to Christopher Marcus in Hyde Park-there is a stylist there named Carrie who does updos for $60. My mom just had her trial, and it was amazing-my mom has let’s say…unfortunate looking hair and Carrie made it look incredible. In my opinion, if you are going to shell out money for pictures that you hope to keep for a lifetime, why not spend a little extra money on your hair??
