As the busiest bridal season of all fast approaches, we thought we’d put together a blog post outlining the top 5 reasons to have your and your gals’ bridal hair and makeup done professionally for your special day. There is so much to think about (and let’s be honest, stress about) on the day of your wedding, so it’s always a great idea to allow some time to relax and calm your nerves. Hiring a team for your bridal hair and makeup will ensure that you have one less thing to worry about, knowing you are in the hands of absolute beauty professionals!
First things first, a bridal makeup trial is a must! And you can’t forget about that perfect wedding hair trial, either. We cannot stress the importance of these enough. Most of the time our brides think they know exactly what they want for their wedding day, but sometimes after seeing it on themselves, they realize it actually isn’t what they want! Seeing a picture on Pinterest is totally different than how it may look on you. Having a makeup and hair trial will take away the stress and wonder of “is this going to look good on my eye shape?” or “is this hairstyle going to suit me?”. Think of your trials like you would think about trying wedding dresses on for the first time. You may go in with an idea of what you like, but until you try it on, you won’t know! As beauty professionals, we’re here to guide you and ensure that you feel stress-free about your hair and makeup for your big day!
Let’s talk about bridesmaids, beauties. Getting you beautified is one thing, but bridesmaids’ hair and makeup are important, too, especially if you want to ensure consistency amongst the girls, particularly in your photos! If you have your hair and makeup done professionally and your girls don’t, it will likely be noticeable. It’s also such a fun time for all the girls to get ready together in the morning, as you all feel pampered and special as a part of your big day. This is a great way to relieve any stress you may have about how the girls’ looks will turn out!
Another reason to get your hair and makeup done professionally is knowing your artists will be using top-quality beauty products. We as professionals use high-quality products in our beauty kits to ensure the longevity of your hair and makeup. We invest so much into our kits so we can carry a wide range of products for all skin and all hair types. You’re going to feel so much better about the products that are being used — because we are going to make sure that your foundation matches you perfectly, that your airbrush doesn’t look cakey, and that your flyaways are perfectly tamed so that no matter the angle you’re photographed, you look absolutely flawless!
Your photos are going to last a lifetime, and the best way to ensure they look great is to make sure you have an excellent hair and makeup artist! Professional hair and makeup artists know exactly what kind of techniques to use to make sure you are photographed perfectly in every image. We understand what kind of hair and makeup looks good on camera and will work with you to get the exact look you want in those photos that last a lifetime. Makeup appears 30% lighter in photos than in real life and can sometimes look one-dimensional if not done professionally. That’s where we step in with our beauty expertise to make sure that does not happen!
Finally, this is simply your time to just enjoy your day! The last thing you want to worry about is how you and your bridesmaids’ hair and makeup is going to turn out. This is your time to relax, feel pampered and stress-free, and prepare for the rest of your day. You will feel confident in the hands of a professional hair and makeup artist, knowing we will do everything we can to make your vision come to life!
