Would you invite her if she weren’t your hair stylist?  The answer to that is your answer!  


The girl who did my hair from age 13 till about 26 is coming…lol but she’s my maid of honor.

@csteen85:  Because she is not someone you reguarly hang out with, I would just pay her, tip generously and then go on with your day. My hairdresser happens to be one of my dear friends, whose wedding I attended in May. So, one my day comes, I will invite her and her family to my wedding.

I don’t think you have to invite her if you’re paying her for her services and she’s not a close friend: she’s a vendor, and I’m assuming she would understand that. Maybe she would even feel awkward if she WAS invited because chances are she’s not that close to the other guests, either.

@csteen85:  I’m a stylist and if it were me I wouldn’t expect an invitation at all. I doubt she will be offended.

I would probably just extend the invite to be polite!

I don’t think you should invite her. I’ve known my hairstylist for years. She’s also my mom’s and grandma (and was my great-grandma’s) stylist. She knows my whole family and I like her but I wouldn’t think of inviting her to the wedding.
