Everything You Need To Know About Choosing Your Wedding Hair & Make-Up Artist


You’ve picked your wedding dress and the venue of dreams is booked, now what? The next thing on your wedding to-do-list should be to pick the perfect Bridal Hair & Make-Up Artist. One of the most exciting aspects of wedding planning, you can finally start picturing how you’ll look on your wedding day. You want to look and feel your best, which is why it’s so important that the wedding professional you choose is the right fit for you and your special day.

Choosing a Bridal Hair & Make-Up Artist can be pretty daunting, and many brides think it’s a task that they can easily handle themselves. You do your own hair and make-up every day, so why should you need someone to help on your wedding day? Many brides even consider asking a friend to assist with their aisle style on the morning of the wedding. What’s the problem? Let us explain!

Your wedding hair and make-up is going to be extra special – it’s not just a standard day, it’s the most important day of your life! The morning of your wedding is going to be busy and stressful enough as it is already, without the addition of having to do your own hair and make-up. And what if you’re just having one of those days where your hair and make-up won’t go how you want it to? Cue the tears!

By hiring a Bridal Hair & Make-Up Artist, you’re eliminating a huge stress and you’re guaranteed to feel as confident as possible. It will feel like a mini pamper session ahead of the big day, where you can enjoy a glass of fizz with your best girls while having your hair and make-up done by a professional. Will they understand the look I want to go for? Will they make sure the hair style compliments my dress? Will my make-up last all day? These are some of the questions that every bride-to-be has so make sure you ask, no question is a silly one, it’s your big day. With our skills and experience, we promise you that we can create the exact look you want, without any of the stress!

Wedding hair and make-up artists also have the knowledge of which products to use, and which to avoid. Whether it’s picking out the perfect primer to ensure your make-up stays in place all day long, choosing a highlighter that will glow in your photographs or using a hairspray that does exactly what it says on the tin, you can relax knowing everything is taken care of. Wedding planning is expensive and you may consider it a little more friendly on the purse strings by doing it yourself or asking a friend to do it. However, we recommend allocating a section of your budget to a professional. You wouldn’t bake the cake yourself or create the bridal bouquets, so why would you do your own make-up?

A wedding hair and make-up trial is a great way to find out if the artist is the right choice for you and the time will allow you to feel at ease with someone else taking care of this aspect. You can read more about Bridal Hair & Make-Up Trials here. Trials are super important, as you can see the finished look before the big day and decide if it’s exactly what you want. Anything you don’t like, you have time to change and the looks that you love can be noted so when the wedding arrives, the hair and make-up artist knows what will make you look and feel a million dollars!

So, it’s time to take the plunge. Get in touch with Liz Patey MUA to find out how she can be a part of your special day. Images courtesy of Liz Patey MUA.
