I think it depends on the stylists… I was in a wedding a year ago, and it took from 9-1:30 to do 4 bm’s and the bride’s hair. If your stylist says she can do it, I’d trust her, but make sure you stay on top of things (or have someone else do it for you) while at the salon, so you get out at the time you want 🙂 I’m sure you’ll be fine!

I think you will be ok as long as you have enough time between 12:30pm and 2 to do all the other stuff you need to do!

To me it seems a little time crunched. Do you have enough time (to have a bite to eat, get your dress on, get your getting ready pics and protraits taken with your girls, travel to the ceremony etc.)?

Also make sure your butt is in the chair FIRST!!!! If the other girls take longer you can pop home to finish getting ready without them if you are tight for time!

If you want to ease your mind I would push it back an hour!

It depends on a lot of things actually.  

1.  It is one stylist that is doing everyone’s hair?

2. How much hair do you and your bridal party have? How thick it is, How long it is…

3. What kind of styles are you doing?  Up and detailed?  down and straightened? up, but not a lot of detail?

4. Are you getting your make up done?

I say all of this because I have A LOT of hair and it’s rather long (down past the middle of my back) and one of  my bridesmaids has even longer hair and thicker hair.   My salon has blocked out 2.0 hours for me and two and a half hours for her.  My other 3 ladies will be much simplier.   They each have thin and shoulder length or shorter hair.  There is an hour and a half blocked out for 2 of them and an hour for the other.    Plus we are all having make up done.    We have 4 styles blocked out for the 4 of us.  Our appointment start at 9:00 and we are schedule to have pictures at 1:30.

I agree, ask them. 

I have 2 stylists for 6 of us.  They said 2 hours. 

Appointments start at 10am and getting married at 3pm, so same time difference as you.
