Bridal Hair and Make-up: Do's and Don'ts

Posted on January 20, 2015 at 9:15 AM

Hello ladies, I have never tried this whole 'blog' thing before!  But I guess there is a first time for everything!! Deciding what to write my first entry about was no contest.  Sadly I have worked recently with brides that have had bad experiences with therapists working within the wedding industry and this has unfortunately cost the brides more money and added to their pre-wedding stress.  

To try and help the current sitation I have compiled a 'check list' to help brides when it comes to booking their hair and make-up stylist.  So please take the time to have a read through and any comments are more than welcome! 

 

  • DO, first and for most and I can't stress this one enough ladies, make sure that the person you are hiring is fully qualified and insured.  A genuine stylist will be more than happy to show their qualifications or insurance certificates if asked.
  • DON'T always do for the cheapest option and this may end up costing you more in the long run.  I am not saying book the most expensive either!  As I was always told with quotes for DIY etc... 'get several quotes and opt for the middle man'.  Just take note that the stylists prices also refelect their experience and the products they use.
  • DO book a trial!  You wouldn't buy your wedding dress without trying it on first!  Most stylists offer trials at a discounted rate, and this gives you a chance to get to know them.  You need to be able to talk to your stylist and feel comfortable with them as they will play a part in your special day!
  • DON'T pay a deposit to secure the date until you have had a trial and are happy with the service they provide.  If you do pay a deposit prior to the trial be sure to check its refundable as you don't want to be out of pocket! 
  • DO check out pictures of their previous work either on-line or in a portfolio.  Be sure to look out for pictures of themselves working on the brides as unfortunately some people do use pictures off the internet of brides they have not worked with.
  • DO feel free to ask what brands of make-up etc they use!!  Most stylists use a variety of different brands and will work with products they believe in.  I personally won't use a product on a bride unless I have tried and tested it on myself first :-) and my kit ranges from Rimmel and Maxfactor to Urban Decay, Benefit, Clinque etc.  Also you don't want to pay a fortune for a make-up artist that only uses products bought from a high street store!  
  • DON'T be shy to tell a stylist you don't like something or want to change the look at all.  Remember, its your day and you need to feel comfortable.  You are paying us to make to you feel confident and stunning!
  • DO get the therapist to take some pictures of the style you have created together so that you may look back on it if needed.  Also it helps to check the make-up you have chosen looks just as amazing on camera as it does in the flesh.
  • DON'T let a stylist talk you in to having any services you don't want, you can say no at anytime.  Let them recommend other treatments, by all means as they may provide something you want, but you are not obliged to say yes!
  • DO NOT have a facial just before your wedding as you are extremely likely to break out in spots, especially if you are not used to it!  Have a facial around 2-4 weeks before the wedding, or book in for a course over a few months leading up to your wedding, but NEVER within the last 2 weeks!!
I hope this has helped and if I think of anything else I'll add it to the list ;-)

By all means, feel free to contact me with any questions, I am always happy to help!

Take care and I'll speak to you soon,

All my love


Sharon xx

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, but I really thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you might repair when you werent too busy looking for attention.
