Let’s explore what this entails.

Why Hire Professionals?

The first thing to consider when looking for professional hair styling and makeup artists for your destination wedding is why you need them in the first place.  Sure, there are plenty of tutorials available online and insta-artisits are a dime a dozen but nothing beats having someone who knows exactly what they’re doing create a look that works for you for your wedding day.  From color matching custom blended foundation to finding the perfect hairstyle for your face shape, a professional can help ensure that you look stunning on the big day.

SAVE yourself from heartbreaking disasters

We all have someone close to us that is in the beauty business in some way, shape or form, but are they right for you or the person to help you create the look you want for your wedding day? Well that is an answer only you can discover. But, I will give you some reasons why, it’s best to choose another route. It’s pretty difficult to tell a friend or family member that you don’t like something or can you change it, but you sure can tell Makeup in the 702 and we will jump at the opportunity to change anything to please you and be on the same page as your vision. You would be scared or concerned that your friend or family member may be offended. That is cause for future problems and worse yet, out right fights and disengagement of the relationship. Is it worth it to you? I think not. You hold those relationships near and dear and the fragility of them could be at stake, on both ends. Best to stay with a professional that is in it to win it for you and has no ties other than the relationship of beauty for your wedding day.

What Should I Look For?

When it comes to finding professionals in hair styling and makeup for a destination wedding, there are several things to keep in mind. Do your research!  It’s important to make sure that the beauty team you choose has experience with weddings—Not all makeup artists are alike, each has their own areas of expertise, some do bridal makeup, some do runway makeup and some do makeup for television or video. Just as you’ve researched your other vendors you read reviews, check their licensing and credentials, and view their body of work. Then based upon what you like and after your conversation with the hair and makeup artist, you make your decision to hire them.  When you talk to your hair and makeup artist, your conversation should be easy and effortless and should go beyond pricing and availability.   If they don’t have time to talk to you beforehand or the conversation seemed uncomfortable or uneasy, chances are- they are not the hair and makeup team for you.

How Can I Prep?

Book your location or venue first and don’t be shy, ask your bridal concierge/consult for referrals.  Knowing where you’ll be getting married will  also have a huge impact on your style.  You’ll be able to share details with your beauty team that will help them help you determine your beauty timeline for the day.  We encourage you to ask for referrals. Venues are not going to refer you to someone they do not trust since it’s there reputation on the line too. Destination brides are not always afforded the opportunity to schedule a trial date prior to their wedding day furthering the importance of booking with us well advance. If it works within your travel plans try to plan for a trial.  Planning your travels to include time for a trial has other benefits too.  You’ll have the chance to preview your look and let your artist and stylist know of  any changes you’d like to your hair or makeup when you have your day of makeup done. What If I don’t have time for a trial?  Las Vegas is the destination wedding capital of the world, so we completely understand and know that sometimes there is just not an opportunity to schedule a trial. In those instances, Makeup In The 702 provides a phone consultation and we work through the prep details to ensure that we hit a home run on your wedding day.  Avoiding a wedding day disaster! The number one mistake brides make when planning their hair and makeup for the day is not allowing enough time.
