Does anyone just hope for the best and skip the hair trial? I live 3 1/2 hours away from where I am getting married. I really don’t think I’ll have any time between now and the wedding to get a trial unless I do it the day before. Has anyone skipped it? Anyone who got one and thinks maybe they didn’t need it?
Or am I just totally crazy? 🙂

It’s a good idea to do one, so you can make changes if you’d like. But, that being said, it’s not the end of the world if you don’t do it. Everything will be fine! 🙂

I got a trial and was glad I did. I liked the overall look but there are things I didn’t like about it that I will want different for the real thing. I too live 3 hours away from where the wedding will be but was back in my hometown for my shower and did my hair trial that morning. If you don’t get a trial just make sure you go in earlier so it will give you time to get things changed if you don’t like them but if it is a more simple hairstyle I feel like you may not need the extra time since it is harder to not do it right.

I voted yes, but I think it really depends on the style you want. If it’s complicated/you’re not sure what you want/you haven’t done it before/your hair is difficult to work with, then I think you should really try to fit one in. If none of those, and you’re not super stressed out that it won’t turn out EXACTLY like you have pictured, then I think you could skip it!

I’m having a Destination Wedding so that makes it difficult to have a trial anyway, but in reality i think they are a waste fo $$. Half the time your hair and make up will not turn out for your wedding like they did for your trial. FI’s cousin will be setting up our hair and make up services. She lives in the town where we will be married, and it’s from a salon that she frequents. I don’t want anything too complex, so I’m totally comfortable with this arrangement.

I am not able to do a hair trial, because my FI’s cousin (who works at a salon) is going to do it for free but she is it out of town until the day of. So, I am just going to stick to something simple. If I wanted something special, yes I would prefer to do a trial to see how it looks and if they do a good job.
I did, however, get a trial for my makeup. It took several runs. I am glad I did with that, because I used my Fiance as a test when she would finish and he would say “its too much!”. So I would go back to the drawing board until she got something he liked.

I would say if you have hair difficult to deal with then yes, do a hair trial. My hair is not so hard to deal with, I AM! I’m very picky when it comes to my hair and even more picky when someone is in it! I too live 2 hrs away from my venue but I try and schedule some weekends to drive up and get some things taken care of. Since Jan, I have been going back and forth twice a month! But I cannot do that June-Sept., I will be very busy doing other things meaning I would have to pick back up wedding plans not until Oct.

Thanks…I don’t think my hair is all that difficult. Originally I had chosen a somewhat complicated style but am now leaning to something very simple. Still on the fence about whether or not to have a hair trial. Either way, I need to book appointments soon!

I did one, and I’m glad I did. I think for me, it’s important to see what a style looks like on me. It’s easy to see a picture of a hairstyle I like on someone else, but it may look completely different on me (and it usually does). I have very fine, straight hair, so not every style works well with it.
