What to Look for in a Hair and Makeup Artist?

You have already spent a lot of money, and you have hired videographers and photographers to make it memorable. To look your best, here are some tips you should consider when hiring a hair and makeup stylist.

  • Availability. As soon as you have found the wedding venue, you should make sure that the hair and makeup artist is available. This will ensure that you have given yourself enough time to do proper consultations and even have time for makeup trials. You should also enquire from the artists how many people can be available on that morning to assist them.
  • Ask yourself what you want the morning of your wedding. It is always a good idea to picture the perfect wedding morning you would want to have. That will help you liaise with your hair and makeup artist and plan the perfect timing for the session. The last thing you want on your wedding day is to have a hasty hair and makeup session and end up messing everything up, including being late for your wedding.
  • Recommendation. When looking to hire a makeup and hair artist, it is always a great idea to take your time and do some research. You can always search for an artist in social media since you can find many great ones there. However, it is also a good idea to ask recently married couples about the hair and makeup artists they hired. This way, you will have a good chance of getting someone with a proven record, who will make you look beautiful.
  • Budget. With all the expenses that come when planning a wedding, such as the flowers, renting the venue and the wedding dress, it is possible for your budget to spiral out of control. Therefore, it is advisable to ensure that the hair and makeup artist you are looking to hire can operate within your set budget. You might also consider skipping the consultation process, which can help you save some cash.
  • Contingency plan. Things can go wrong, and it is possible for things to get messed up on the morning of your wedding day. Therefore, you should make sure that your makeup and hair artist has a backup plan, in case anything happens. You can also make certain your artist brings along an emergency makeup kit, to keep you fresh and beautiful for the entire ceremony.
