I don’t know anyone who has other than Future Mother-In-Law.  She told me a horror story the other day over dinner…it was the worst possible thing you would want to happen to your hair on your wedding day.  She spent hours in tears.  I’m not saying every experience with a student will turn out that way…and maybe things have gotten better in general since 1980, like, more rigorous training and policies…but yeah.  Hers did NOT go well.

I was thinking about it but then I figured whatever, it’s my wedding day, may as well go all out.

I do get my hair dyed at schools quite a bit though and never have had a problem.

I would call and see how far along in the program they will be at that time.  If they have been in the program for awhile it is probably going to be better than if it is their first month.

I wouldn’t risk it.  There are experienced stylists who are amazing at cutting but aren’t great at updos.  Good updos can be tricky.. especially for beginners.  I don’t think you would be saving enough money to make it worth the risk.

I would go for it.  If they aren’t able to do a trial that you like, then don’t use them.

You are really willing to risk a huge messup and have terrible hair on your wedding day?  Personally, I don’t think its worth saving $75 or whatever over.
