When making the choice on whether to hire a hair and makeup artist depends upon the bride. Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • How comfortable are you doing your hair and makeup?
  • Is this something you want to take on for your wedding day?
  • What look are you looking for?
  • Is it in your budget?
  • Do you want to have your bridal party's hair and makeup done?

Whether you decide to hire a makeup artist or not, having a practice run is never a bad idea. When picking your wedding day hair and makeup it is important to keep in mind that you still want to look like yourself. There's nothing wrong with a glamorous look on your wedding day, just try to keep in mind if your wedding is taking place during the day or in the evening. What works with your dress, and what style do you want to portray to your guests on your big day. Most importantly, never forget the most important thing a bride can wear on her wedding day is a smile.

     When it becomes time to choose your hair and makeup be sure to keep in mind your gown, and venue. Although a popular choice for a bridal hairstyle maybe half up, half down weather can play a big part in whether or not your hair will stay. If you know that your hair does not hold a curl, your are facing a choice that by the time you walk down the aisle your hair might be straight. However if you are looking for a hair selection that will last all night, I might suggest an updo. In all honesty, from bride to bride, go with what is in your heart. No matter the choice you will look stunning and bridal.
