    @Double_rainbow:  I also did not want to pay for hair, however I am sooooo glad I did. If you can afford it, do it!

    No way! You don’t want that added stress the day of. I think hair is a necessary expense, and I would have happily cut something else from my budget to get my hair done professionally.

    I am going to say it depends on how difficult you hair is to handle.

    I did my own hair on my wedding because I had wanted something super-simple anyway.  Basically I just had my hair in a bun which I have done before.  It took me all of 10 minutes and added no stress.  Also I just did not think that my hair would look that much difference even if it was done by a pro if it’s just a simple bun.

    I’m with PPs who say it depends on your hair. I have a pixie cut, so I’m not going to pay for anyone to “do” my hair – though I had to do that at a wedding I was in (bride required hair and makeup, not worth the fight over it) and it was so irritating having someone try to “do” my cut. I looked like a punk rocker.

    I think it totally depends on you and your ability and budget.

    We are low-budget, but even if we weren’t, I’d still do my own hair and makeup. Why? Because I’m a part time makeup artist and my hair is just going to be down, MAYBE half up, and I can handle it.

    @Double_rainbow:  It depends, do you have the products and equipment to do your own hair?  If so, I would probably go DIY.  I had my hair professionally done because it would’ve cost more for me to purchase the equipment and supplies (I don’t even own a hairbrush).

    I don’t trust anyone with my hair.  I think for ME it would just add on more stress. I have the type of “ethnic” hair many people cannot handle. Plus I live in a town with very limited population of people that can handle it.

    I think we need more details about your hair, your desired hairstyle, and your skill level to be able to answer your question.

    @Double_rainbow:  Don’t do the trial, but definitely get it done day-of! Unless you want SERIOUSLY complicated hair, or live in the stck-in-1985-middle-of-nowhere, you’ll be fine!
