Choosing a salon/stylist for the big day
How did you select the person who is doing your hair for the wedding? I am going to make an appointment at MAC for my make-up. I have had make-up done there maybe 15 times and I trust it will be great (plus they have a whole store at your disposal and you get $50 worth of product so it's like the make up is free. Can't go wrong!)
My problem is, I don't know how to go about selecting someone to do my hair. My wedding is out of the town in which I live, so it isn't like I can easily go try a bunch of places. I can obviously try one or two - but how do I select? Did you know your stylist before you selected him/her for the wedding, or did you meet them solely because you were looking for someone to do your hair for the event? If it is the latter, what made you go to them? Friends? Websites? Reviews? Just chance? Help!
I am going to visit in a couple weeks and I wouldn't mind attempting to schedule a trial while I am in town... just don't know with whom!
