YOUR BRIDAL BEAUTY BOOKING PROCESS.

Updated: Mar 14, 2022




WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN YOUR DREAM BRIDAL BEAUTY TEAM


Looking for your dream bridal beauty team should be as easy as 1-2-3. There are a few main characteristics that every bride should be looking for when searching for your bridal makeup and hair team.


The first thing that every bride should do is to check out google for bridal makeup and hair in your area and check out their work or their bridal portfolio or website.



Be on the lookout for bridal makeup and hair looks that are similar to the one that you envisioned for your wedding day. You want to choose a glam team that can deliver your bridal makeup and hair looks. You also want to find a bridal beauty team that works together already, finding a team that works together means that they have done this many times before and they work together well to bring your bridal beauty vision to life.

Also, having a team that is experienced in bridal makeup and hair and having professionals that work in the bridal industry all the time. Having a professional bridal team that has done makeup and hair for weddings, that can work well under the pressure of delivering bridal makeup and hair on the wedding day is key.


Look for a professional Bridal Beauty Team that is organized, has a wedding day plan and timeline, professionals who are talented and have bridal makeup and hair skills. You will want a team that is not only professional but that is also kind, caring, humble but a team that you can vibe with and a team that will over-deliver on your bridal beauty vision, and finally a team that will be your bridal makeup and hair BFF.

Wedding Day Plan & Timeline Outline:


BRIDAL MAKEUP AND HAIR INSPO


Having inspiration photos for your bridal beauty look is a great start. You and your bridal party can save your inspiration photos for your artists. We will curate your bridal beauty look based on your inspo photos. Look for bridal makeup and hair photos that are similar to the styles that you like, also look for similar hair colors and skin tones to get a better idea of exactly how it will look on you.


It is best to choose a few photos for each makeup and hair, you can choose specific details about each photo that you like to customize a look that's best suited for you. Try looking for makeup and hair photos that you don't like to have a clear vision of what you do not like for bridal makeup and hair, have a detailed list for your artists on what you dislike and also anything specific you would like to cover up or correct. Create a Pinterest board of bridal makeup and hair inspiration photos that you like and that you don't like and share it with your bridal beauty team.

For bridal makeup, come with a freshly cleansed and moisturized face. Exfoliate with a gentle exfoliating gel (enzyme peel) prior to your appointment. Don't add any new skincare to your routine.



THE WEDDING DAY


Now comes the wedding day, your getting ready location must be spacious, have plenty of natural light and chairs. We will bring our tables and lighting along with our kits.


Once we arrive at the location, we take time to set everything up and then we get started. We use our wedding day plan and schedule to get everyone done in a timely manner. If it is a smaller bridal party, we will have fewer artists versus a larger bridal party.


We like to start off with facials for everyone and curling hair first, then makeup and styling the hair. We will start with the bridal party who needs to be ready first and have the bride second to last. Brides do not go last.


We need about an hour each for makeup and then hair for the bridal party. For the bride we need more time, we like to have all bridal parties in a 5 to 6-hour time frame. Once we are done, everyone will have got into their dresses and then we do quick touch-ups, fix up lip colors and take photos and videos of our work. Once we are all done, we pack up and let you get down that aisle to say your "I Do's."
