Key Questions to Ask Your Wedding Hairstylist Before You Book It

Before deciding on a hair stylist for your wedding, you will want to make sure that all of your needs, from the trial run to the day-of, will be covered. We suggest you start with these key questions and go from there.

  1. Can I see a portfolio of your past wedding hairstyles?
  2. What is your fee and payment policy? Deposit and due date for the remaining balance?
  3. What is your cancellation policy?
  4. Can I schedule a trial run? What is the rate?
  5. Will the stylist doing my hair for the trial run be the same stylist for my wedding day?
  6. Is there a backup stylist in case there is an emergency and you cannot make it to my wedding?
  7. Will you be able to travel to me or will I have to travel to your studio?
  8. Will you be able to stay on site to help with hair, veil, and headpiece touchups after the ceremony? If so, will there be an additional charge?
  9. Will you be bringing your own equipment and hair products?
  10. What products do you use?
  11. What kind of space do you require?
  12. How long will it take to have my hair done?
  13. If you are unable to come to my wedding venue, can you provide a hair product that I can use for quick touchups?
  14. Do you know how to work with veils, headpieces, and hair jewelry (bring your headpieces to the trial run, if wearing)?
  15. Will you bring an assistant?
  16. Is it possible for me to meet your assistant? Does your assistant have solo styling experience?
  17. Will you be doing the hair styling for my bridal party or will your assistant? How much time will this require and what are the rates?
