Why your wedding hairstylist should not be the last vendor you book
This blog is going to be a spin off of Martha Stewarts blog that I had come across scrolling through Facebook one rainy afternoon.
Since you can click the link above and read the original blog, I am not going to waste much time, but I do want to talk about a few key points that really stood out to me.
I have found that working within this wedding industry, hair and makeup artists are often the last to be booked, and are also sometimes left under budgeted for. Now planning a wedding of my own I totally get it with the first "To Do" list, and major things that need to be checked off and in order before you can plan any further. You can't get married if you don't have a venue or date to do so! But with that being said, I completely agree that hair and makeup should also be added higher to your list!
I have a lot of brides that usually wait until after they say yes to the dress to even consider a hairstylist. Although yes, before we can talk specifically about styles I do suggest to have your dress, but sometimes speaking to a stylist before hand can aid helpful in the dress choice based on the hairstyle you have in mind.
We all know that one of the first things when you think he is going to pop the question is to immediately start growing out your hair! With the help of Pinterest I'm sure you have most of your wedding already planned... not saying its within your budget, but it's what us women do! So to have a general idea of what hairstyle your envisioning is not too far fetched.
Based on certain hairstyles, certain dresses tend to look better. Keep in mind that if you buy a dress that has an open or intricate back, you bought it for a reason and most likely don't want to cover it up with your hair being down. An updo, even if it is a lower bun, would show it off beautifully!
Lastly, don't under budget for hair and makeup services. There are a ton of talented vendors out there, all different price ranges, so make sure to ask the right questions.
Are you looking for someone to come to you day of? I offer this service to my brides because I feel like it completely eases the stress of the wedding day and is a luxury, but travel does have a price. Make sure to keep that in mind for your budget as well!
Also, are they licensed? You will definitely pay more for someone who is licensed, but it is absolutely worth hiring a more expensive artist because you know you are in great hands with sanitation. By hiring a professional cosmetologist, hairstylist, or makeup artist you also have to keep in mind that seasoned pros will have contracts signed and back up plans if something were to happen.
The most on-demand artists are usually booked early, and there is never such thing as too early to book!
