google “wedding hair your city.” most salons i contacted were willing to open on sunday for my wedding even if they were usually closed — some had a minimum required and some didn’t. i ended up finding a freelance team to come to me.

I just saw this post and I’m also getting married on sunday in MA.  I looked at places close to my venue and they had a couple of spas that did hair and make-up.  That may be helpful to look at.

i’m a worcester girl!! yay central MA!

are you looking to have someone come to you or would you rather go to a salon? most salons being closed may be a good thing for you because their stylists will be available to do freelance work outside the salon. there are some good salons in the area:

http://www.nmspa.com/index.html

http://www.scizzors.com

http://www.topshopsalon.com/

http://www.jeffreyrobertsalon.com/ (this is where i had been going, but my stylist moved temporarily, she said she plans to come back before the wedding, but who knows! i wasn’t happy with the girl that tried to do my hair last time, she was just a junior stylist though)

if you are looking for make up (non airbrush) i’ve had mine done here and it was GREAT! (i’m picky about my make up, HATED the make up done at tumoda day spa even though it was hella expensive!) they are also great for waxing and i am hoping to get eyelash extensions done here before my wedding. i want airbrush make up so i won’t be going here for my wedding but i know someone who used them for wedding make up and they came to her & it looked great.

WELCOME

hope you find something! i will def be checking this post for ideas! =)

@MrsE.ToBe :

Oh thank goodness I found this post. I’m getting married in Worcester, but don’t live there, so I don’t have a regular salon there. Do you know anything about Fulgere? They’re an Aveda salon that’s near my hotel that I was thinking of using.

@mightywombat: i’ve never heard of it. i wonder it it’s new. are you having hair or make up done there? have you had your make up done at an aveda salon before? totally a personal preference thing, but because the make up is great in that it’s natural, but they don’t have the range of products to get the look you may be going for. i know one aveda artist that suggested clients bring their own foundation and lip color just because theirs doesn’t have the same coverage or staying power of other make ups some people would prefer on their wedding day. just went on their site & it says they do airbrush too! i will ask around to see if anyone i know has heard of it, if i hear anything i’ll let you know. i am still looking for hair & MUA, so i will def be looking into it=)

I got married in a city a little ways from where I live, so using my usual hair dresser wasn’t an option.  I went to a bridal show in the area where my wedding was and talked to a few.  One booth was doing hair/make up on the fly, and were super nice, so I booked them for me and my bridesmaids.

@MrsE.ToBe :

I don’t know yet – I was leaning toward it because I go to an Aveda salon where I live, and they have pretty high standards.  But I have no idea whether that translates to other Aveda salons, of course!

That’s interesting about the makeup staying power. I will make sure to ask about that. The trouble is that I know NOTHING about makeup; the only foundation I have is Bare Minerals, which I’m told doesn’t look great in pictures.
