My cousin just got married last week and she had, I guess you could say, DIMOH hair.  It actually came out really good, even though her Maid/Matron of Honor is an accountant and not a professional stylist.  If you’re sure you want something as simple as a nice neat blow-out, I don’t see why you can find a willing friend to make it happen at home.  Always try it once or twice first for practice, of course.  And if you’re really sure you know what you want, you can do it yourself for her to show your friend/family member exactly what you want them to do.  Most people who can style their own hair well can help you out as long as you aren’t going for a crazy up-do or want a cut.  Just remember that on your wedding day, its your day to RELAX.  It’s better to put your free hairstyle in the hands of a trusted friend than to be stressing out first thing in the AM about a few flyaways in the back that you can’t tame.  Good luck!

There is no way a blow dry should cost $150-$200. My bridal updo only cost $125 and that is Boston which I believe the prices should be similiar around Providence. I would check out a couple of salon’s and see if anyone charges a reasonable amount for a blow dry

If all you want is a blow out maybe you should check out a local hair school?

The local one here has students who are through school and have to do 9 months in the salon, where they work supervised. I had my prom hair done there for $10.

Maybe go for a couple of blowouts leading up to the day and ask if the student would be willing to come to your home that morning and blow out your hair?

Blow outs aren’t difficult. I can do them and I have NO hair training. 🙂

I agree with roxy that a blow out should NOT cost that much!

I had no intentions of doing my own hair (and I’m a hairstylist!) because I knew it would have driven me crazy trying to get it just so. Then again, I also had an updo – it’s definitely worth a shot doing your own blow out, just practice the style a few times so you won’t be struggling on your wedding day.

I think if you have a good cut you should be able to do this yourself no problem.  I can handle my hair and have it look awesome when it’s relatively freshly cut.  It’s when it starts growing out that it gives me fits and wants to wave and flip and just not cooperate at all.

It could be possible that the salon increased the price if it was mentioned it was for a wedding.

I’m in the same boat; I am willing to shell out the money for professional makeup, but don’t really want to spend a lot of money on my hair. I am going to wear my hair down, with curls and put a flower in it. 

Like others suggested, shop around. You may find a deal!

how long is your hair?

my hair is super short pixie cut

so im just wearing mine down in a pretty headband

try just having your hair all natural and put a pretty flower in it

or a feather or a headband

i would get it trimmed like a 1/2 inch or less like 2-6 weeks before the wedding

depending on how fast your hair grows

good luck 😀
