Do you have a store like Elder Beerman, Younkers, Macys, or JC Penny? They all have makeup counters with make up artists that could probably do your makeup for you.

Most hairstylists recommend you don’t wash your hair directly before a formal hairstyle like an updo or half-up, etc because the cleaner your hair is it often won’t hold curl as well (the natural oils and product build up just helps it stay in place). My stylist told me “day old” hair was best, so I just washed and dried my hair the day before the wedding. So I wouldn’t worry about wash on dry on the day of the wedding, it’s kind of a waste of time unless you are just wearing your hair in a blow out.

As far as makeup goes, on my wedding day, the stylist “set” my hair in rolls with bobby pins first, then did all of my makeup while the hair was setting. When makeup was done, she took the curls out and started the updo. So I wouldn’t worry too much about hairspray, etc after your makeup is done. If the salon is well versed in wedding hair/makeup they will know to avoid getting it on your made up face.
