    If your bridesmaids are willing, can their chip in to have their own hair done? That way you can hire the more expensive English-speaking hair dresser, and not have to worry about a thing.

    What happens if your hair starts to go crazy and there’s no hair stylist around to fix it just before your wedding? If your thick hair is anything like mine, I know it won’t hold curl with all the running around and last minute prep stuff I’ll be doing between 10am and 5pm.

    Assuming you did a trial with both and liked their work equally – I would go with the 500 euros and the peace of mind!  The language speaking is also a HUGE plus!

    I would go with the more expensive stylist from Paris.

    With the first stylists, there is a 7 hour gap between when she has to leave and when the ceremony starts.  There is no questions that your curls will start to fall out at that point, (especially given your thick hair).  You just don’t want the stress of something going wrong in those  hours and not having a stylist there to fix it.

    If the paris stylist is 500 for everything, including makeup, for the entire bridal party, (plus your mom), them pitching in will help offset the cost.  Plus looking beautiful on one of the most important days of your life is priceless.  Those pictures last forever.  

    My stylist cost $500 for hair. makeup and trial for both and it was SOO worth it.  Yes it was expensive but I absolutely don’t have any regrets about it because I’ve never felt more beautiful than I did that day.

    Honestly, I’m a saver, and normally would be all about saving the money. In this case though, I have zero doubt that I would pay the extra money for the piece of mind. Like Meowkers said, I have never felt as beautiful as I did on my wedding day, and if my hair hadn’t been to my liking, I would think about it every time I look at my pictures. Instead, I’m so incredibly happy with how it all turned out.

    Don’t feel bad about spending the money. In this case, it’s completely worth it.

    @Au Jardin:  If that price covers all of your bridesmaids, depending on how many there are, I think the 500 Euros is a great price.  My hair girl is costing me $650 USD (so about 500 Euros) to do my hair and makeup and hair for 7 bms, flower girl and style 2 mothers.  SO, I think that’s a reasonable price.  Would the bms be contributing, though?  That may be the issue. 

    No matter what, I would not go with the French guy.  You’re clearly not comfortable with him (understandably) and that is so not what you want on your wedding day.

    I’d go with the 500 euros and if that includes her doing everyone else’s hair, maybe they could chip in on it too

    I would go with the 500 euros hairdresser without a doubt! Just for the peace of mind that you’ll get with her..not to mention you’ll have her ALL day (for touch ups to make up and hair if needed with photos, etc), PLUS she’s able to do your entire bridal party! And like another pp said, if your bridal party would pay her what they were going to pay the horrible guy, that will definitely help out with cost.
