I asked the salon approximately how long a wedding day updo will take for scheduling purposes. They said 1/2 hour!!!
Sounds a little short to me. I don’t think I’ve ever had an updo for someone elses wedding that was that quick nevermind my own. I do have long hair.
My wedding is in a month & I don’t have time to screw around. Going for the trial this week.
Does 1/2 hour allotment sound right? This particular hairdresser has another appointment scheduled 1/2 hour after mine is to begin and I’m worried. It sounds like I’ll be hustled in and hustled out. Not my idea of a plesant wedding trip to the salon for $100.

I just had my hair trial updo on Tuesday. I took her literally 20 mins! I was so impressed!! It looked fabulous! this is what mine looks like (very similiar).

Wow! Half hour seems like a short time, but you never know, like MrsJKH2be said, hers only took 20 minutes! I just had mine today, and it took her about an hour and 45 minutes. Its a good idea to go in for a trial as soon as you can, that way if you feel rushed and not satisfied you can look for someone else immediatly.

For brides it can typically take between 45 minutes and an hour depending on the stylist. It’s inevitable that the stylist will probably be running behind (if you’re going to a salon) so make sure you plan plenty of buffer time to get your hair done, take pics with all your girls, pay, and head over to the ceremony site.

I am a hairstylist and I must say, we always book an hour for each bride. 20 minutes seems waaaaaaaaay too short of time. What if your stylist is running 15 minutes behind which then it puts your appointment behind as well. Even if she can do updo’s in her sleep, you might just want to be on the safe side and at least reserve 45 minutes.

yeah…as a stylist as well, i agree, that seems way too short. i’m pretty quick with updos but 30 minutes isn’t enough, esp a bride! do a trial run…and if they can’t accomodate you for that, look elsewhere.
