So my grandma asked a friend of hers who does hair and her assistant to do mine and my bridesmaids hair for the wedding. My grandma kinda didnt give me a choice in the matter so to keep the peace I agreed to let her do a hair trial.
Well I went yesterday and had one done and it was not exactly how I wanted but was not horrible. The only part is the lady said she thought she was just doing my hair and that her assistant is out of town and so it would just be her that could come. She can only do me and 4 out of 7 of my bridesmaids by starting at 9am because she had to leave for appointments at 2:30pm. Now I am stuck with a lot of people and not enough hair stylists.
I have lined up someone else to come and do the other three bridesmaids but my question is should I hire someone else to do just mine making three hair stylists? I want my hair to be perfect and not only was the trial not what I wanted I also dont want time to run out while she is working on my bridesmaids and I get stuck short changed.
My conflict is that I also dont want to cause drama with my grandma or her friend. I just think the best way is to have someone else do my hair and just have her work on the 4 girls and the other lady doing the 3 girls.
Is this the best way to work this out? I need help trying to keep peace and be happy for my wedding.

Can you have grandma-friend do 5 bridesmaids and then hire your favorite stylist to do you and the remaining bridesmaids? I guess I don’t understand why you need 3 stylists when one is capable of doing 5 hairdos in the allotted time and there are only 8 hairs to be did. Just ask your stylist to start on your hair no later than X:00 so that you don’t get shorted… have one of the bridesmaids who doesn’t mind a natural/easy look go “last” just in case the stylist run out of time.

If you’re not thrilled with how your gran’s friend did your hair, DEFINITELY find another hairstylist to do yours (and the other 3 bridesmaids). It is YOUR day. And it is most important that you feel happy and beautiful and like you’re getting what you wanted for your hair. Otherwise you will likely look back on your photos for the rest of your life and be irritated or slightly disappointed about this one thing.
Tell your grandma that you’re super grateful for her talking her friend into helping out but since she has limited time anyway, and she didn’t quite do what you really want for your big day, that you’re going to have her help by working on however many bridesmaids she can fit in and you’ll have a different stylist that you love do your hair and the extra BMs.

hire 1 person/company to do yours, BMs, and whoever else. much less hassle to deal with less vendors. you may not want 2-3 different hair style vendors coming in.
you don’t want to feel rushed and you want to look beatiful.
