I got married in a rural are of upstate NY and I was not driving 1.5 hours each way on my wedding day to get my hair done, so I DIYed.

I looked at some pictures online and practiced a few times at home before the big day.  Then I just had my sister help the day of the wedding.

Since each of your BMs will have to DIY their hair too, why not have them all over and practice on each other?  Be sure to take pictures so you remember what you did and can replicate it for the big day.

Also- I found that there are some videos online that show you how to do various styles.

Mrs. Avocado even posted one here on Weddingbee a while back!

I think Rosy’s idea is very good! Have the girls and maybe even your mom over and have a hair styling party! Try a few different styles before so you know what you like and don’t like.

Or you could bring a friend or two to the salon with you to watch how the style is done and then have them practice a time or 2 before the big day.

@sleepylittlesailor I had a destination wedding too! My cousin and her best friend did the makeup for me. We had two trial runs months before just to make sure they know what works for my face and what makeup I need to bring to Cancun.

For hair I made an appointment with the hair salon that the coordinator recommended. Maybe you can also act your wedding coordinator what’s available there? Unless you have friends that are really good with hair 🙂

I had pictures for the lady to follow. It was a bit difficult as I don’t speak Spanish, but my husband does so he helped out during the trial and during the actual bridal prep my photographer (who speaks Spanish) helped me communicate with the hair lady.

There must be salons in the numerous resorts in Nevis that you can go to.  I think there is a Four Seasons in Nevis.  Perhaps contact some of the resorts on the island, particularly those with spas, and see if they have their own in house beauty salons.  I’m sure their concierge services can also recommend a local stylist.
