Hair, Beauty and Makeup for the Bridal Party

Wedding Hair & MakeupWhat bride doesn’t want herself and her bridal party to look absolutely flawless on her big special day? Hair and makeup plays a huge factor in a wedding – not only for all of the guests, groom and groomsmen to see, but also for the photos (no one wants to look back on wedding photos where the makeup of the bridesmaids resembles a clown!).┬áTherefore, there should be a lot of thought put into who does the hair and makeup on the wedding day.

You may find that you know someone, or have someone offer to do the hair and makeup for both you and your bridal party on the day. It’s important to tread around this lightly, as there have been many occasions where this has resulted in ruined friendships etc (if the hair and/or makeup doesn’t turn out how you imagined).

To avoid this potential disaster, your best bet is to hire the services of a professional hairdresser and makeup artist. It’s HIGHLY recommended that you get a trial run of the makeup and hair beforehand – even if you have to pay for it – as this will help you determine whether they are the right choice for you or not.

Here are some things to ask a potential hairdresser and makeup artist that you are enquiring about:

  • Are you fully qualified/licensed?
  • How long have you been in the hairdressing industry for?
  • How many weddings have you done hair for?

  • What do you charge for bridesmaid and bride hair ups?
  • Do you offer hair up trials?
