Prepare For Wedding Make-Up & Hair Makeover
A wedding is one of the biggest events that can happen in a woman’s life. The wedding preparation can be a challenging task to do especially if you and your significant other have no experience managing events. In cases like this, the most ideal decision you can ever make is to hire a professional to arrange everything for you. This professional service sometimes includes a wedding package for make-up and hair makeover but if you want a separate service, find the best wedding venue you can choose what you prefer.
As a bride-to-be, you need to be well-prepared before you face the man who’s going to be with you for the rest of your life. You need to choose the best make-up and hair arrangement during your big day because it will reflect who you are on that day. And if you are looking for ways on how to prepare for a wedding make-up and hair make-over, here’s what you can consider.
1) Scout for a good hair and make-up artist.
Looking for a good hair and make-up artist (HMUA) is the first step to prepare. You need to find a person that can work on the different angles of your face. When looking for an artist, get to know her professionally. Ask about what type of clients does she have, her years of experience, the brands of make-up she is using, and the price of her service. When interviewing your potential artist, ask for the sample of her work so you can see how she works on make-ups and hair. She should be able to give you options when it comes to hair and make-up arrangments. Don’t forget that it’s a wedding makeover, don’t settle for a poor quality makeover.
2) On-location Vs. At Home Service
When looking for your HMUA, consider if she will be doing the service on-location or at home. It is important that you know where she is comfortable working. If doing your wedding makeover on-location is no hassle during your big day, then you can choose it. However, if you are worried about the schedule, you can ask your HMUA to do the service at home. When asking for at-home service, make sure that you have enough space where you can do the makeover. Prepare all the necessary tools like extensions, hair blower, hair iron, and so on. It’s better if your HMUA can provide all that you need for the event.
One thing you shouldn’t forget when preparing for your wedding makeover is the price of the service. You should set a budget first if you want to save as much as you can during your wedding. Your budget can be your basis to choose the right HMUA for you. Also, when selecting a service, make sure that you have enough options on the list so you can compare their prices. There are plenty of local HMUAs out there. For sure, you are going to find the right artist with a good set of make-up skills based on the budget you set.
4) Pre-event hair preparation
Once you found your HMUA, ask her about pre-event hair preparation. Tell her the hair you want on your big day. If you want colored hair, ask her for hair coloring treatment advice. If you want to slay the straight long hair, inquire about the treatments you can do as a pre-event hair preparation. You should also ask for the general care hours before you do the wedding makeover. For instance, you can ask her advice in terms of washing your hair. Do you need to shampoo and condition it first or should you just left your hair alone and let her do the magic? Things like that can make a big difference. Don’t hesitate to ask.
5) Pre-event makeup preparation.
Lastly, don’t skip asking your HMUA for a trial session. This is so you can test the makeup she is going to put on you during your wedding. If you want to change something such as the color of your eyeshadow, your blush, and your lipstick. This is the best step to know if she is really good at handling faces. You can do the trial session right after you book your appointment with her or schedule it a week before your wedding.
