Well, I just went to a beauty school in downtown for the first time about a month ago for the same reason that you did, I can’t afford my stylist anymore. I was weary about the idea at first, but I figured…they’re under supervision and the teachers are trained how to fix any mistakes. Besides, if it’s anything HUGE they’ll be watched like a hawk. 

I had a very vague idea of what I wanted. I wanted different, and I wanted my dead ends GONE!

5 hours later (I had an all over color, semi-weave highlight, and brow wax done) I left the happiest I have ever left a salon. And I only paid $50. I say GO FOR IT! ๐Ÿ˜€ 

 

This was before (there was 2 inches of dead ends, so it all had to go bye bye)

 

 

 

Andddd after! Here’s the actual color with highlights

 

Andd the cut!

@Girasole:  DO IT! My hair is baby fine and layers are super tricky for me. The instructor had the same type of hair as me and did the layers herself as well as forced me into some bangs. Not gonna lie, when he said “2 inches have to go” I about cried, and the instructor approved that in fact, all of that was dead ends. 

Remember that hair grows really fast during the Summer months. Being that you have an entire year, you have plenty of time even if they do cut off a little bit too much.

@Girasole:  Nope, I’m totally the same way! My hair was gorgeous, past the halfway point on my back, and “Hey! Let’s do a pixie cut!”….not a good idea. Like I said, I almost cried when he said two inches haha. 

I will tell you that Aussie 2 Minute Miracle conditioner once a week has done my hair wonders. Fiance makes fun of me because I can’t stop running my fingers through my smooth, healthy locks.

@Girasole:  Yep, exactly! I doubt you’ll hate them though. Highlights are so fantastic ^_^

@Girasole:  I think if your wedding isn’t until next year, you have plenty of time to grow your hair out or change it if you want. I would give your friend a chance because you can always dye hair and it will grow out! ๐Ÿ™‚

I went to cosmetology school… So I’m gonna say this, it totally depends on which student you get. We had some girls in my class that were amazing, better than people I work with now who have been doing hair for years, but there were also girls who literally made a mess of things.. Uneven haircuts/leaving highlights in for too long and causing breakage. Instructors are there but honestly they’re not hovering the whole time! It’s like 1 instructor to 20-30 students! There is no way I would risk my hair right before my wedding after the things I saw in beauty school lol I mean I remember hearing a girl cry, being curious I went to check it out… It was cause her hair was falling out after the student left her bleach on too long.. And I went to the nicest beauty school in Las Vegas! This probably scared you, but I couldn’t help but tell u!! Maybe tell them it’s for your wedding and they’ll give you one of the best girls!

 

edit: I just realized you said your friend is gonna do it!! Not some random student! If you have enough time to fix it if it gets messed up go for it, if not definitely go to your regular stylist.. Is ur friend close to graduating? Or will this be her first month on working on real clients not mannequins ?

@Girasole:  first off, I live in Hampton Roads too and my wedding is in VB so that’s pretty cool!

Anyways, I used to get my hair done by a friend who was fairly new at doing hair. I never had a problem. She always did a great job and if anything was “to my liking” she would fix it. Example: one time we left the bleach in too long and it came out splotchy. I freaked, I looked like a leapard with my hair pulled back. She immediately fixed it and it looked perfect. The only reason I don’t use her anymore if because she moved to another state :

Go ahead and try her out. Like you said, she will be supervised and trust me highlights can be easily fixed (normally done by using a glaze). Just tell her you only want a trim and not a drastic cut.

Trust me, I know what it’s like to have your hair mean everything to you. My hair is like my prized possession lol. It’s the only thing I ever, and constantly, get compliments on so I take my hair very seriously lol

If I wasn’t getting married next year, I would do this no brainer. I’m definately a sissy and my hair means more to me than anything on my body, besides my engagement ring haha.
