@emilyliza88:  we are all going to the salon first thing in the AM and doing everything else at home. I don’t think it’s crazy that she would want you to come to the salon, and I don’t think you can make her work at your home if she doesn’t want to.

It doesn’t hurt to ask, but not all hairdressers want to travel to your home or venue, so she may say no. Nonetheless, she may be open to it, so just ask!

I DEFINETELY think she should come to you.

@emilyliza88:  As much as it would inconvenient you, imagine if she had to cart all her tools to your place.  This includes not just actual products, but things like mirrors, coverings, straighteners/curlers… Heck, even a proper chair, depending on her level of professionalism.

You can only ask.  You can’t demand.  Well, you can demand.  But she might not come.  Or, if she does come, I wouldn’t be surprised if she charged you extra for a house visit.

In my area, it’s extremely abnormal to have the hairdresser come to you unless it’s a friend or relative.

Not all hair stylists travel to their clients’ homes.  That’s why I chose someone that regularly does this and is prepared for being mobile; she traveled to my home for the trial and to the hotel room for the wedding.  You can’t insist that she go to your house.

We went to the salon which is pretty typical for this area. I did do a trial with a girl that would have come to us, but I didn’t think her work was very professional at all and went with someone else.

I agree that she should come to you. In my area (Chicago suburbs), most of the hair and MUA will come to you. It makes for a less stressful morning, in my opinion. I would def. ask 🙂

I think it’s best if she came to you, but if she just doesn’t do that, you’re out of luck.  I specifically found a hair and makeup lady who would travel to me.  I did not want to worry about the wind or anything else messing up my hair and makeup while trying to get back to the hotel to finish getting ready.  You can definitely ask her if she’s willing to come to you, maybe even offer her a little more to travel.  Good luck!

Not all hairdressers are able to travel to you. Employees of corporate salons (Ulta, JC Penney, etc) can actually be fired for “stealing clients” if they are caught doing work outside of the salon. 


Im sure its nothing personal. It may be a rule at the salon where she works.

I specifically recruited a mobile glam squad. The nail tech I wanted to use works in a shop about a 10 minute walk from my hotel, but was adamant that she doesn’t do house calls. Dah well, had to go with someone else. People really underestimate the time and effort that is expended traveling from place to place with a bridal party in tow.
