Your wedding day is the biggest most important day in any woman’s life. Absolutely everything has to be perfect down to every last detail. Your photos will last a life time so everything has to be just the way you want it to be.

When it comes to your hair and make up, you want to be the best version of yourself. This means staying true to who you are. If you’re a person who wears their hair down all the time, don’t decide on your wedding day to try an upstyle, you’ll look back and probably regret your decision, ending the night with your hair loose anyway. If it’s not you, your wedding is not the place to try something new.

Finding the right hair and make up artist for your big day is an important step when it comes to achieving your glamorous look. A big deal these days is finding someone who is cheap, but just be wary that they may not provide you with the best final product. Cheap does not mean better. You will remember this day for the rest of your life. You do not want to look back at how badly your hair and make up was done.

That is why we always do trials before the big day. Not only is it to see which style you want your hair in or how dark a smokey eye you want, but also to see if the artist you have chosen is right for you. If you are not happy, find someone else. No feelings should get in the way of you finding the perfect make up artist for your wedding.

In the weeks leading up to the trial gather a few images of hair styles and make up looks that you like. Have them with you at the trial to show your artist, ask them what they suggest and together decide on a look that will best suit you. Often looks you find on the internet are not always attainable for your wedding. Meaning, if you find an amazing upstyle with a massive braid/bun, 9 times out of 10 hair pieces are used. Now if you are someone with very fine hair, creating this look could be impossible. So be realistic when it comes to deciding on your look. Go for something that brings out the best in you. Also consider the style of your dress, if the neckline has small intricate detail, maybe wearing your hair down is not the best idea. So it’s smart to show your artist a picture of your dress so they can suggest a few ideas to help you with your final decision. There is also no rule stating that the same person has to do your hair and make up. If you have a hair dresser that has been doing your hair for years and knows exactly how your hair moves and what you like, then by all means, get them to do your hair on the day.

Ultimately your make up artist is there to make you happy, if there is something they have done that you don’t like, speak up. It is your day that will be unpleasant if you don’t.
