How to Find a Hairstylist and Makeup Artist For Your Wedding

How to Find a Hairstylist and Makeup Artist For Your Wedding

Besides your spouse ( . . . and family and BFFs, of course), your wedding day hairstylist and makeup artist are two of the most important people you'll have by your side before exchanging vows. Not only do you want professionals who understand and can execute your vision, but it's also important to find artists you feel comfortable around and trust.

After doing extensive research — 10 years of writing in the beauty industry helped! — and forming tight-knit relationships with talent, I found the perfect team for my own nuptials. Because I couldn't have been happier with my wedding day glam squad, I spoke with them to get advice on how everyone can have a positive experience.

Before you start your search, know this: hairstylists and makeup artists who work with brides are of a rare, special breed. Not only do they love working in high-pressure environments, but the best ones also know how set the tone for a fun, relaxed day. I learned quickly throughout my trials that energy is almost as important as skill.
