Once you find your dream dress, the next thing to do is find your wedding day hair and makeup look. After narrowing down the look you want on your wedding day, you'll want to make sure that you set up a hair and makeup trial. This is the perfect opportunity to test out the looks you love and see what suits you best. Here's a few tips for making your hair and makeup trial as meaningful as possible:
Do Your Research: Before your hair and makeup trial make sure that you spend some time researching different options. Pinterest, blogs, and even Instagram are great sources of wedding day inspiration!
Consult Your Stylist: Having trouble deciding which look suits you best? Consult your stylist! They are the professionals after all so trust their judgement and let them guide you as you narrow own your options.
Give Yourself Time: Schedule your hair and makeup trail a few months out so you have enough time to schedule a follow up if needed. Schedule as many as you need until you feel confident in the final product!
Be Direct: This is your day, so don't be afraid to be vocal about any changes or adjustments you need. If you want something different, ask for it. Don't worry about hurting someone's feelings, just make sure that you're following your gut and being up front about what you want.
Take Photos: Document the experience by taking lots of photos. Review these photos with your mom and friends to decide what you liked, what you didn't, and what you'd like to change.
Schedule a Date Night: If you're not getting your trail done before bridals or engagement photos, schedule a fancy date night to show off your gorgeous hair and makeup. A local gala or nice evening out would be perfect!
Don't Wash It Off: Avoid the urge to wash your makeup off or take your hair down right way. Wear your trial look as long as you can to simulate your wedding day. This is a great opportunity to see how your hair and makeup will hold up over time.
