The Importance of Hair and Makeup Trials  

You may be wondering if a hair and makeup trial is worth it. After all, they are artists and know what they are doing. However, there are many factors that can arise and things that need to be considered before your wedding day. That’s why Hidden Creek definitely recommends having at least one hair and makeup trial if not more.

Every bride has a specific vision of how they will look and feel at their wedding. You need to know what you will look like before the big day because not looking like how you pictured yourself can be a big disappointment. Having these trials will guarantee that you feel the most confident and beautiful on your wedding day. Here are some tips as well as reasons to do these trials.

Get the Most Out of Your Money

Hair and makeup trials are usually $120 to $250 depending on the company. That might seem like a lot of money, but you can put those trials to good use. If you have an engagement party, bridal photos, or a bridal shower, you can use those as reasons to have hair and makeup trials and experiment with the looks. That way, you are getting started early and you can book the hair and makeup team that creates your ideal look. 

What to Ask the Company

There are many questions a bride has when planning out her wedding, and that includes when choosing the right makeup and hair company. Be sure to ask “is the artist that is doing my trial the same artist that will be doing my makeup on my wedding day?” It is important to know that it will be the same artist, or else it defeats the purpose of the hair and makeup trial.

This is also the case if you connect with the artist. They are going to be right in your face for a couple of hours on your wedding day, so you want to ensure that you connect with that person. You don’t want them to be a drainer or a negative person or someone who adds more stress to that morning. Bigger companies may have multiple artists, which is why it’s important to verify that you will be getting the same one.

Discuss Your Options and Purchase Accessories

There are so many different looks out there, some more subtle than others. Everyone has different tastes and desires. Additionally, every person has a different head shape, face structure, skin tone, hair texture, and the list goes on. Therefore, one look does not fit everyone. When you do a trial, you can test different looks, the artist can get an understanding of what they are working with, and you can decide if you will need any hair extensions or specific hair products, or specific makeup products in case of allergies.
