    hi girls,

    I know many threads have been listed about suzzane morell. I booked her for hair and makeup and a trial and now im thinking this is too much because its costing close to 450 (w/ tip and tax). Regardless, this is too much. I would appreciate any feedback on her services and whether or not you ladies think a trial is mandatory.

    Also, I have long hair and I want to wear it down with only a little pulled up in the front,,,,,im having a hard time finding pics...I would appreciate any hair ideas too.

    thanks for helping

      I'm not sure whether or not I want to do a trial either. There is one thread where a few brides have mentioned they never had a hair trial and were happy with the outcome. I think her services are trustworthy; maybe just book the appointment early enough so you can thoroughly explain what you want done.

      Here's the thread with the best/most responses: http://bestdestinati...com/forum/t3612

        I wouldn't want to do a trial just because I don't want to spend vacation time getting my hair done. Some people had trials done at a local place & then took pictures for the stylist to recreate.

          I used Suzanne Morel. I did the hair & make up trial the day of our welcome dinner. They changed it up before I left so I didn't look like I would on my wedding day. So, in addition to having peace of mind about how things would go for the wedding day, I got the added value of special hair & makup for a pre-wedding event.

          I don't know, it depends on how much of a controller you are :) I would say that Suzanne's staff will do an excellent job for you, trial or no trial. I think you can definitely do without it, if your brain will allow you to do that. For me, I needed the extra assurance. Mostly because I have very fine, thin hair...but you have long thick beautiful hair, so maybe you don't need to worry.

          Bottom line - you can definitely do without the trial if it's not in your budget.

            She's pricey...but everyone who used her loved how they looked. Another salon, Mex Sun had good reviews. I think cheese diva used them and her hair and makeup turned out beautiful too. I was considering them as well.

              I used Suzanne Morel and did not do a trial, mainly for the reason above - I did not want to spend my vacation time this way. That said, I did not have very strong opinions about anything so was ready to go with whatever they thought would look good, meaning, I had not been dreaming about a particular hair style. I had a very clear photo of the hair and makeup I wanted and was amazed by how exactly they reproduced both.
              So, I think if you're willing to be flexible, have good photos, and feel like you'll be able to speak up about what you like/don't, you should have no problem going without a trial.
              A final thought - I thought they were expensive but worth every penny.

                I also used SM and did a trial and so glad I did just because my hairstyle was so complex and took a long time to do that the way they did at the trial I didn't like so much and they changed it up for the wedding day and I absolutely loved it, yes it's a ton of money but in my o[inion it was worth it and everyone loved my hair so I was superhappy bout that

                If you are ust getting a very simple hairstlye then maybe I wouldn't recommend getting a trial

                  thanks girls, that helps. I think my fiance just doesnt understand how expensive looking good can be...he was concerned when he saw the price. But beauty costs right

                    I'm doing a trial before the welcome dinner - like Christa did. I'm way too OCD to not do a trial. Also, I have REALLY thick hair and I want to make sure the style I pick holds up well. A lot of stylists don't know what to do with this much hair!

                    Quick question: For those of you that did the trial, do you have directions to her salon
