5 Reasons You Should Book a Hair and Makeup Trial

At themakeupchair we believe that brides benefit from having a hair and makeup trial before the big day. But if you are a super relaxed bride, or just want the ‘I did it myself’ look, then you may be wondering if it’s really worth it, or just another expense to add to that ever growing wedding bills??

Here are 5 really good reasons why we think you should book a trial.

1. Not All Hair Was Created Equal.

Does your hair hold curl? Will you need a roller set or tongs? Will the condition, texture, length allow you to achieve that amazing style you love? All of these are really important questions and ones that should not left to your wedding day.

2. Neither Was Your Skin.

Any makeup artist worth their salt will only use the best products, but that is still no guarantee that those products won’t cause a reaction with your skin. It’s far better to test those products well before and eliminate any risk of blotchy foundation or worse, a nasty reaction on your wedding day!

3. Not All Artists Are the Same.

This goes much further than to just say some artists are more talented or experienced than others. The trial is your opportunity to suss out more than just their talent. Its your opportunity to see if you click. Is your artist attentive and considerate of your needs and feelings? Have they been able to convert your abstract descriptions into the perfect style? Are they calming and easy to get along with? How your artist makes you feel is just as important as how they make you look. Let’s not add to an already highly emotional day by spending most of it with someone you don’t get along with.

4. Plan & Prepare.

During the trial your artist can work out how long they need to get you ready and which products and tools will produce the best outcome. Good planning leads to a stress free day.

5. Feel Confident.

Once all that other stuff is sorted you can then just sit back and relax, confident that your stylist will take over and ensure everything goes to plan on the day, leaving you to focus your loved ones and enjoy your amazing day.

We don’t think it’s worth leaving some things to chance, but in the end if you really don’t want to book a trial, don’t! Just make sure you allow a little extra getting ready time on the day so your stylist can ensure you look and feel fabulous!!
