Hi, The only problem I’m having so far with my Sunday wedding is finding an open hair salon for me and my BMs. Does anyone have any advice for this? I’m not really girly, neither are the BMs so doing our own hair for this occassion is out of the question. But I’m not sure if any of the salons would willingly open their doors for us on a day their closed.
The wedding is in a small, resort town in Missouri if that helps. Thanks

@jrkgarner: I had the same problem. I eventually found a salon that would open for us on a Sunday, and I was also able to find someone who would travel to the wedding site. I just had to make a lot of phone calls to find them!

I would call around and make inquiries. If you can’t find a salon owner to open up their doors for the business, perhaps you can get a hair/make-up person to come to you. The MUA I ended up with traveled to the site and was AWESOME!

Do you have a regular person who doesn your hair? The woman who has done FMIL’s hair foreverrrr was willing to come and do our hair on a Sunday, even though her salon wasn’t open (when our original date was a Sunday)

Look for any mobile stylists in your areas. I know here in Canada, the bigger cities have a ton of them & they are willing to travel for a price.
I’ve booked one & she seems great. The price is high but it will be so worth it to have her & her assistant come to see us in our hotel, way more relaxing and gives me more time. I have my trial in 3 weeks!
Another option may be a couple of students from a local beauty/stylist school. They are usually cheap, flexible and so enthusiastic.
Ask the women around town, they will know…good luck!

Hi there, I just wrote a post on this. I would ask any of the salons you are interested in. The one we booked had $100 fee to open on a Sunday. I thought it was a pain, but not outrageous considering their other prices.

Do you have a hair stylist that you see regularly? if so, ask him/her if he/she could come on location to do the hair. My hairdresser was honored to be a part of my big day and didnt mind this at all!

jsut because they are not open does not mean they wont do you and the wedding party. I guarantee they would…just call around and ask 😀

Find a freelancehairstylist and MUA, I am one myself and we make our own hours.
That also means they will come to you so it’s more of a relaxing experience .

Thanks everyone! Looks like I will be making a lot of phone calls since I don’t have anyone I see regularly in the area (I just moved to town).

I had this concern with my Sunday wedding as well. I think you will most likely need to call around. I actually found a salon with a really nice website and I was able to ask them via e-mail. They were perfectly happy to work on my girls and myself – the only issue I ran into was that they apparently charge more for their services when they have to open on a Sunday, but that was never communicated to me and I was surprised the day of. I don’t know if most places work that way or not, just something to be aware of.

I was having a hard time with a similar situation- my wedding is on a Saturday, but begins ealy at 10:30 and it seemed like I was never going to find anyone who would open early for us.
Call around- I eventually found a place that was more than willing to open early (for a Sunday there would be a $50 charge since they aren’t usually open)
