So, let's dive in and make your wedding planning experience a breeze!
Are you getting married soon and wondering how to find the perfect glam team for your wedding day?
First things first, it's important to do your homework before you reach out to a hairstylist or makeup artist. Take a peek at their portfolio to see if their style matches yours. Some artists specialize in clean classic looks, while others may specialize in boho vibes. Knowing this can save you time and help you find the perfect stylist for you.
Always keep your wedding day Hair and Makeup budget in mind.
Determine what is most important to you and allocate your funds accordingly. Remember that a highly sought-out stylist may come with a higher price tag.
Here are some crucial questions to ask potential stylists before booking:
Wedding Date: Reach out as soon as possible, especially if you have your heart set on a specific stylist. Some book up to a year in advance, so don't delay! Ask about the deposit to hold the date and their cancellation policy. Keep in mind that holiday weekends may come with an additional fee due to travel expenses.
Location: Know where you'll be getting ready and if you'll need on-location services. Stylists may charge a travel fee if the location is out of their usual range.
Time: Determine what time you and your party need to be ready. The stylist may need to bring an assistant to ensure everyone is ready on time, which may come with an additional fee. If services are needed before 6am, expect an early bird fee.
Services Needed & Rates: How many people will need services, and which services are needed? The stylist will need to know how long it will take to complete everyone and if they need to hire an assistant. Some stylists may offer a touch-up hour or have a service minimum.
Refund Policies, Scheduling & Late Fees: Ensure you understand the stylist's refund policies, as booking with them reserves your date and time. Late fees may also be applied if your party is tardy, as this can cause the stylist to fall behind schedule.
When setting up your trial, the stylist will ask you more in-depth questions about your hair and makeup preferences, such as whether you'll be wearing any accessories. Remember, wedding planning can be stressful, but by doing your part, you can have a stress-free bridal suite experience.
