How to Find a Hairstylist or Makeup Artist For Your Wedding

Jul 11 2013 - 5:27am

Somewhere on your list of things to do before your wedding [1] day is finding a hairstylist and makeup artist. It's likely that you have a hairstylist, but the same person who cuts your hair might not be a bridal updo expert. And makeup artists? Very few women have a pro in their list of contacts. And if your wedding [2] is out of town, then that adds a whole other element of frustration. Simplify your search for a bridal beauty entourage with these tips:

Once you have a list of potential wedding hairstylists and makeup artists, ask to see portfolios, and get references. Then, it's time to set up your bridal trial (warning: it might take more than one). Schedule the test run at least six months before your nuptials, so you have time to perfect your look or even find someone else. Also keep in mind that your team will likely have to do everyone in the bridal party, too. So, make sure you brief them on what you want for your bridesmaids, mother, and flower girls.
