Do I have to hire a Professional hair & makeup artist?

Point to note for Brides-to-be:

Q: "Do I need a Professional hair & makeup artist?"


While it is very okay to do your own hair and make up if you think you are skilful enough, hiring a professional to do it for you on your wedding day will give you time to relax before the crazy begins. Most hair and make up packages come with a trial session for the actual day. Let your hair and make up stylist know your preference during your trial session with them. Show them images of hair and make up styles that you like to help them understand what you’re looking for. 😊

Don’t be afraid to sport a less than common look for your wedding, if that’s what makes you comfortable. If you don’t wish to grow your hair out for your big day, then don’t. There are plenty of wedding appropriate styles for short hair. Or, if you have a long bob, your stylist can put it into an up-do like I did for my wedding. Similarly, if a dark brown or black smoky eye look is not quite your thing, even if that’s what every bride does for her evening make up, don’t be afraid to request for something more neutral or sweet.

Try not to remove your make up or undo your hair immediately after your trial session to see how it holds up in the heat and humidity. The longevity of your make up and hair style, especially if you’ve opted for curls, depends on your skin type, hair quality and the humidity in the air. So, take note how quickly your face turns oily and your hair to uncurl after your trial session and feedback to your stylist so that she can make any necessary changes or reinforcements on your actual day.

Since you are paying for her services, don’t be afraid to voice out any requests you have, such as drawing your brows or curling your eyelashes a certain way, or for her to use your own make up products instead of hers. Most stylists should have no problems using your make up products, but do bring them along to your trial session if you intend to use them.
