What Nobody Tells You About Getting Your Wedding Day Hair and Makeup Done

No matter how much painstaking time we put into planning our wedding there are some things we can control and there are some things we cannot control.  Here’s some insider tips to help you plan ahead and avoid some of the most common mistakes brides make when it comes to your bridal beauty. 

Allow enough time for hair and makeup.

Typically the day starts early and it’s easy to lose track of time while you’re celebrating with your besties and bridal party behind the scene. There’s selfies to take, champagne and toasts to make and enjoying those last single girl moments, memories that will last a lifetime. Hiring a professional beauty team will help you stay on track!

You’re makeup artist and hair stylist are the first vendors you’ll see for the day. They set the pace for everything! The timeliness of hair and makeup sets the tone for the entire timeline for the brides day.  You should book your Hair Stylist and Makeup Artist as soon as you establish your ceremony time and your first look with your photographer.  This allows us to use our expertise to create your timeline so nobody feels stressed, pressed or rushed once they are in the chair.  Giving everyone plenty of time to get out the door and arrive on time.  

Remember to tip your pros! Often a forgotten item in your budget.

In many countries tipping is not a part of their day to day practices. Tips and their amount are a matter of social custom, and the custom varies between countries and settings. In some locations tipping is discouraged and considered insulting; while in some other locations tipping is expected from customers.  In Japan for instance tipping is not a part of the culture. It is not expected and can cause confusion.  Japanese people see tipping as insulting.  Let me add one more twist to this whole tipping scenario for you, as if I haven’t given you enough to think about already.  In some regions a service charge is automatically added to your bill.

We are privileged to work with couples from virtually every country and  culture so what is a planning couple to do and what should a wedding service provider expect.

The concept of tipping is not itself difficult to understand but the who to tip and how much to tip those providing services for your wedding can be a little tricky to navigate, lucky for you we’ve solved the Wedding Gratuity Etiquette mystery!

Don’t forget to plan for the weather!

If you’re planning a destination wedding in a location where the climate is much different than your home town do your research.  If your hair tends to frizz in humidity be sure to pack some frizz fighting serum and remember to let your stylist know in advance how your hair reacts to different weather so they can plan ahead to make sure your locks are on point for your day.  Not every agency guarantees their work, WE DO! Everyone that sits in our chair is guaranteed 15 hour water and transfer resistant makeup and hair that withstands the sometime unexpected desert winds.

On the day of your wedding you should be relaxed! Totally chill and filled with excitement as you get ready to glam up for the day. Don’t give your bridal party to much say so. Let your stylist do the planning and directing. They will know what works best when it comes to the order in which each person having hair and makeup done should be in the chair. They’ll work closely with the photographer to ensure you’re ready when they are.
