    Hi Everyone,

    So, to throw a wrinkle in this for you Janet - I went there for a trial on Thursday and they didn't bother to explain to me that Bambi wasn't going to be doing my hair, they just showed me to Dani. Yours is the first explanation that I had.

    Dani was nice. She's young, though. At my trial, we had to do it twice before we had something that would work. I wore it for the rest of the day and realized that there wasn't anyway that the style would hold so when I went in on Saturday, we had to reconfigure it for a third time.

    I was asking for a simple updo so this shouldn't have been a problem (and hasn't been any of the other times I've had updos).

    In the end, it was fine - it stuck out a bit in the back, but the pins didn't hurt and that was the most important thing given that I was going to be wearing them for so long. I didn't love how she did the pieces hanging down, but I was really more excited to get married than I was worried about my hair.

    I had also had an updo done at the Hilton on a site visit. It was just as good but a lot cheaper. In retrospect, I would have been happy with the Hilton (they did a great job on my bridesmaid's hair) who also did my makeup and it looked good.

    I wasn't impressed with Hive, but it was fine. I've seen other girls on this site who have had really beautiful hair (Meaghan - who did yours?) so I would say shop around.

      You know, I had a spa party at the Hilton. It was fabulous. Their massage therapist are really great. We had about 15-20 people there and everyone said either, "That's the best massage I've had" or "That's the best massage I've had in a long time." I had two massages and found them great.

      Just a thought - you might want to consider them. They gave me a 20% discount for having a group there.

        Natasha,

        Well everything you said basically confirmed all of my feelings (so at least I know I am not crazy or something). I'm skeptical of their excuse, and ultimately just don't think they are worth the cost.

        But in the end, our hair looked fine and we both loved our weddings, and that is what matters :)
