As the question states, what time frame before the wedding are you having your final Cut/Color done?
Here is my situation, what would you do?
We leave for our Destination Wedding on June 9th(Mexico), the wedding is June 13th.
Fiance and I just moved to another city 4 hours away from where we were.
I’m sure most of you are like me, in wanting to stick with the hair stylist you know and love. Being 4 hours away now, I can only make the trip home on weekends. Looking at my schedule I have two options:
1) May 25/26th weekend (2 weeks before we leave)
2) June 8th (the day before we leave, this is only if we can get into town early enough)
Unfortunately, my stylist will be in Vegas for the June 1st weekend 🙁
I’ve heard you shouldn’t cut your hair too close to the wedding, but how close is too close?

About 2 weeks before!! I usually have a lot of red in my hair and I want it to be as vibrant as possible without be freshly dyed

@SupermansSweetheart: I’d go with the 2 weeks but either should be fine!

2 weeks! Give the color a little time to settle…it will still be vibrant without looking super bright and new!

My hair is never “right” for a few days after a cut and color So I say the 2 weeks. that gives you time to go back in if something’s wrong with the cut or color. Also, you don’t want to dye your hair and then use heat products and all that on it. newly dyed hair is very fragile and dry and you don’t want it to look “scorched” on your wedding day!

I would say the later date because I like my hair color fresh. After 2 weeks, I might already have very slight regrowth, which is fine IRL but maybe not ideal for pictures.

two weeks before. my hair always takes a couple weeks to “settle down” after a cut and sometimes newly dyed hair can look a little harsh/heavy, if that makes sense? and you should give yourself some “fix-it” time just in case you’re not happy with it. even if you’ve been going to the same stylist for years and completely trust him/her, accidents happen. i’m a hair stylist myself and we all have days where our skills are just a little off 🙂
