Your Questions Our Answers

When should I schedule my hair trial?

Plan to schedule your trial three to five months ahead of your wedding date.  Planning any earlier could lead you down a road of in-decision and second guessing your choices. planning any later could cause you to make rush decisions.

What should I wear to my hair trial?

Many brides struggle with a disconnect at their trial when they choose to arrive in their every day casual attire.  We’re not saying you should wear your wedding gown to your trial but we do recommend that you dress for the occasion.  Wearing a blouse or dress that has a similar neckline to your gown can help narrow that disconnect and help you visualize your completed look for your wedding day.  For instance, if you’re wearing a gown that is off the shoulder, wearing a shirt or dress that sits off the shoulder will give you a realistic visual.

Should I wash my hair before my trial?

Yes! Plan to arrive with clean dry hair and do not style it with product or heat prior to your arrival.    Hair that has been styled with heat, in particular a flat iron will not hold a curl.

Should I wear Makeup? 

If you’re not planning to have a makeup trial done on the same day as your hair trial then yes, you should plan to arrive with makeup on.  Again, having your makeup on will better help you visualize your completed look for your wedding day.  We do however HIGHLY recommend that you take advantage of the time you’ve set aside for your hair trial and book the makeup trial as well, you will not regret it.  Take advantage of the day an plan for  a photo shoot with your betrothed.

Should I bring inspiration photos?

Yes!  We highly encourage you to bring photos of what inspires you, this will help guide your stylist, giving them great insight as to what you like and more importantly, what you don’t like.  Included in your inspiration photos should be photos of yourself in your gown, perhaps from your fitting.

Should I bring my veil or accessories?

Yes, yes and YASSSS!  Absolutely bring your veil or any accessories you want to try or have already decided need to be a part of your look.  Planning on placement in advance at your trial will save you much stress on the day of your wedding.  Your stylist will take photos from every angle to ensure that the placement of your veil or accessories are the same on your wedding day as you planned at your trial.  Be sure to take photos of yourself as well.

What If I don’t have time for a trial?

Because 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. 

Final tips!

It’s very important that you communicate clearly with your stylist at your trial and on the day of.   Pay attention to the details of your style.  Ask questions as your stylist is working with you and don’t be afraid to speak up.  Be explicit with your feedback, your trial day is not the day to be shy. Makeup In The 702 welcomes your questions and your feedback.  Following your trial share your thoughts with us.  You can’t hurt our feelings!  We thrive on honesty and an open dialogue and want to know  that  your  curls held up,  that your updo stayed in.  When your trial is complete, take notes of all of the final decisions made so you don’t forget anything you may need to bring with you on your wedding day.

Don’t forget to consider the weather. Winds in the Southern Nevada desert kick up at will, be prepared to embrace it.  Did we mention… The Makeup In The 702 Guarantee! 15 hours of water and transfer resistant makeup and  windproof wedding hair!

Don’t bring your entire entourage to your trial, too many voices in the room can muddy the waters.  If you feel more comfortable having someone accompany you then we suggest one person perhaps the mother of the bride or the maid of honor., and your makeup was able to last all night.
