My mom made a hair trial appointment for me this week for my wedding. I was wondering if its normal to be charged for the same amount that I will be paying for my wedding day? My mom is telling me that I have to pay over $100 for the trial and then again on my wedding day and I’m thinking thats a lot of money for someone just to practice. Is this normal?

That’s what I had to do too.

That’s what I’m paying for. I think it’s normal (but ridiculous!)

Everyone I looked at was less for the trial, but not by a lot, only $25 or so. Some I’ve seen deduct part of the trial if you end up booking.

It depends on where you go. I have heard of people paying the same price for the fact that the stylist is doing an updo for you both times. They are time consuming. But then again I use to work at a salon that would only charge you half price for a practice run if you book the actually wedding updo with the salon. (should tell you though they take your credit card number and make you sign a contract that says that you will be there for that day if you dont they charge you a fee for breaking the contract and so the stylist is not out of her comission or bothrental fee. usually it is the cost of the updo that you were suppose to get!)
You can always shop around for better prices or call and see if they do a package like I discribed.

Yes, its normal. But it is totally worth it because you can try out different styles. I was going to skip mine, base on the stylists reputation but I would up doing a trial and I am SOOOO glad because I wound up hiring someone else and on doing a hairstyle completely different from what I originally envisioned
