Wedding hair and make up is one of the most important parts of planning and putting together a wedding. The cost for wedding hair and makeup does vary greatly depending on your place, how much work there is to do, and how elaborate your looks are. At the low end, cheap wedding hair and makeup artists may only cost around $60 per hour for a single service, though in larger cities, more elaborate wedding hair and makeup may cost more than $1,000 per hour. Hair and makeup are one area where an artistic touch can really add to the overall look of a bride. The high price also means that hair and makeup artists have to be very good at what they do, which also adds to their fee.
Hiring a beauty artist is a great way to get the look you want without spending a fortune. However, before hiring them you will need to know what you are looking for. First of all, make sure they are licensed, because then they will know what chemicals and products they use, which will be safe for you to use. You should also find out their rate for hair, makeup and other services. Ask friends and relatives for recommendations of places where they have had good hair, makeup and skin care services.
After you have settled on a place to have your hair or makeup done, it is time to choose your bridesmaids, if you have any. If you don’t already have them lined up, try to find a few that you are close with, as well as ones that you think will look good together. For example, if you already have long hair, you might consider getting it done up, or vice versa for short bridesmaids. If you don’t mind a few ups and downs, you can even ask your grandmother to take one of her grandchildren for the day.
Now, here comes the part that may take some time, but definitely worth it. Talk to the hairstylist about the different options for your dress. There are so many styles from which to choose, such as: wedding veil, classic up-do, strapless, simple ponytail, classic bun, or romantic ups. Once you have made your decision, talk to the makeup artist about the hours beyond the wedding, such as: touch-ups, highlights, coloring, and any other services that may be needed.
For example, if you select a classic up-do, the hairstylist will ask you about your skin tone, whether you are fair dark, or redheads, whether you are willing to have spots applied, and what kind of hair you have. He will also ask about the style that is best for your face, so that he can create a design that will highlight your features and minimize your flaws. Then, he will start to create the look you want via splash, meaning that he will use your existing hairstyle as a guide so that he can use stencils and temporary tattoos to create the design that you want.
After that, the stylist will apply a powder to your face and neck to keep you looking natural. Your bridal hairstyle will last all night. And when you wake up, you will be ready to hit the town. This might sound like a lot, especially if you do not have a lot of time, but a professional makeup artist will make the entire process go smoothly. So, talk to him about your bridal hairstyles and makeup look today!
