Alright bees I need advice, I typically have a short pixie hair cut, but when we got engaged I started letting my hair grow. It will be over a 2 year engagement when we get married so my hair is pretty long (past my solders) I want to have long hair for my ceremony and cut it off for my reception! So here is the thing I need to know when? ? Most of the photos should be taken at the ceremony site, should my hair be long for all of them or should I cut it off and have some photos there with short hair …. ugh help!
Our ceremony is at a outdoor museum, reception is at a golf course 15 min away, we will have time for the hair cut because cocktail hour starts an hour after we say I do

I don’t have any advice for you except I hope you trust your hairdresser! And logistically how will you manage, you’ll have hair choppings all over your dress and an itchy neck! Is there any particular reason you’re so keen on doing this?

Man oh man! You brides and your outfit changes and now HAIR changes? Shoooooot. I’m going to have the same dress AND same short hair the entire day.
I love short pixie cuts (that’s what I have now). I’d be surprised if you could get a quality pixie cut and get there and back in time. Why not just cut your hair the next day or the following week? Honestly, it just seems like a lot of fun trying to be crammed into a very short amount of time. Not to mention, what if you hate your hair cut? Time for corrections and such will be limited.

I think it sounds like a giant risk.

I don’t think this is a realistic plan. 15 minutes each way, that’s a half hour gone right from the start. You also have to remember that your stylist will have to wash all the product out of your hair – even if you wear it down, there’s a lot of hairspray involved. If you’re wearing it up, it takes even more time. So taking that into consideration, you’re giving your stylist 15 minutes to cut AND style your hair. I’ve had pixie cuts in the past, and the only time I’ve even come close to that timing was for a trim, not the actual cut itself.

MariContrary: I agree–I really don’t think it’s feasible in such a short time, nevermind you’d have to climb out of your dress and back into it.
I’m in the same situation as you, OP–I had a pixie cut, got engaged and I’m letting it grow out… but I have an appointment the day after my wedding to get it all chopped off again. 😀
