first though. was that they come to your house but then I thought aboallot and its probably 50/50. I would ask and offer to pay for her gas To get to your house. 

Also, did you book her independantly or book her through your salon? That coulall so be the reason

Expect to pay more to have them come out anywhere. She will have to bring a lot of stuff and drive.

im a hair dresser but i only do hair in salon unless family or close friends as i dont have my CID license (certificate of identification) its an extra license you have to have here in oregon to LEGALLY do hair outside of a salon setting. im not sure if other states have that law but it could be that she doesnt want to put her license at risk.

but if thats not the case id offer to pay her gas

are you paying her through her salon or independently?


if its through the salon they usually charge a travel fee to go off-site.


for my wedding i used my usual stylist who came independently to my parents house (on her day off) and she didn’t charge me for travel

I’m not sure I had all my hair and makeup people come to me.  A great hairdresser and makeup artist that travels to you (I mean c’mon who the hell wants to run all over the day of their wedding, I didn’t) Is Toby Adams of Do The Bang Thing. Check her out if you’re thinking you’d like a more convenient day. Best of luck!

Typically it is more expensive to have a hairstylist travel to you for services. At my salon we charge double the price for an onsite wedding, regardless of distance from the salon. See if the salon offers that service but be prepared to pay more for each service and possibly a travel fee.
