OT - would you use an at home hairdresser?

I looked forever to find a good hairdresser.  I got a call the other day from the salon that she is no longer with them. I don't know why she left but they gave me her number. 

Now she is doing hair out of her house.  I'm not sure how I feel about going to some one's house.  I'd rather be at a salon but a good person is hard to find.

I don't think she was planning on leaving.  She's in the middle of buying and renovating a new house. The whole thing seemed really sudden.

It depends on how long i was going to her and how much I've gotten to know her.  I don't have a hairdresser....i do go to a place that does decent hair cuts.  My friend had a hairdresser that was great and they became friends.  She used her for over 2 years and she started getting her haircuts at her house so they can drink wine and have fun while she was getting a haircut.  Even though my friend moved away, they still keep in touch.

If you are familiar with her work, yes. I wouldn't let just anyone do it, but if you know she's good, her being in a home shouldn't change that. If you're uncomfortable going to her home, its possible that she would come to yours for a small fee. I have gone to peoples houses to do hair before. Unless special equipment is needed, it shouldn't be a problem!

hmm... never thought about it being not be legal.  I'm sure she's licenced. I've been going to her about 2 - 3 years.

If she has been doing your hair for awhile now, what would the problem be?  You obviously like how she does your hair and you obviously have a decent relationship with her.  It is no different than her moving to another shop.  I really don't understand the problem.

I say go! Once i am licensed i plan on working in a salon for 5-10years then making a at home "studio". I just think overall ill like it more. I see more benifits of it, but my mind may change in 5-10years so who knows.

 I guess I'm worried that she won't be set up or have the right equipment.  I usually get a cut and color. Is she going to have a way to wash my hair?  Will she have the color?  What am I going to do sit at her kitchen table?

It's one thing when the person is planning on having an in home business but it doesn't seem like this was her intent. I like the anonymity of the salon but I really did like her.  I'm torn.

I would, but my hairdresser is one of my best friends. I would trust her anywhere. She's fully licensed, which is a big deal to me. If it was someone else, and I was used to them and trusted them, I don't see why the location would matter, really.

Yes. The lady who does my braids has been doing them for about 8 years. She had her basement renovated to look like a salon long before I started going to her, she is licensed.

I go to a friend's house for my hair.  She just sets a chair up in her kitchen and washes our hair in the kitchen sink.  She does an awesome job and is just doing it out of her home so she can be at home iwth her 4 kids.  Going to her, helps support that and I love that.  Plus it is a lot less $$ for me to pay than when I went to her at a salon she had worked at.
