Going through the hair and makeup trials before your big day is important so you can find your perfect look. Every bride is different and will want a different look for her wedding day, which is why now is the time to experiment and determine the best look for her. Knowing what needs to be done before you begin hair and makeup trials is the key to success. We break down some hair and makeup trials tips to help this part of the planning and preparation go smoothly.
There are several hair and makeup trials tips you can follow to make sure you get the most out of your experience.
Have your dress chosen first.
It can be hard to wait until closer to the big day for your trials, but you need to know what dress you will be wearing first. This makes a big difference as to what hair and makeup styles will look best. We also suggest having the wedding theme chosen at that point. Bring a picture of your dress to the trials, so if you are uncertain what you want, your stylist can offer suggestions.
Don't wait until the last minute for this, make sure you give yourself time in case you want to schedule several trials. Also, schedule an engagement shoot or bridal shower for the same day, that way your hair and makeup will be done for the event, and you'll look even more beautiful in the pictures.
Show up with dry hair free of product and a face clean of makeup.
Your stylist is going to take care of all of that for you, so enjoy a morning where you don't have to do any preparation.
See how long it takes.
You don't want to be sitting around in your hair and makeup waiting for the wedding to begin, and you also don't want to make your guests wait, so keep track of how long it takes for her to begin styling once a style has been chosen. This will give you an idea of how long you'll need for preparation time on your big day.
Bring your accessories, including your veil and any hairpieces you want, as well as all of your jewelry for the big day.
This is the best way to see the full look and make sure that everything goes together well.
Watch how your hair and makeup holds up.
You're going to be dancing the night away with your groom and your family and friends, so if you notice your style falling or curls going limp, you may want to reconsider the style or ask for more hairspray next time. Same with your makeup, make sure it stays on all day, or be prepared to reapply it throughout the night.
Mastering your hair and makeup trials is easy, just enjoy the moment and enjoy being pampered for an afternoon or morning.
