Hair & Makeup Trial: Getting Inspired!

I can’t wait to head out to California this morning for an amazing week of wedding planning, my bridal shower, the big Disneyland bachelorette party, and more!

One fun thing on the agenda? My hair and makeup trial with the stylist I lined up in December! With experience doing styling for plays and television, she has an amazing portfolio, and the sky’s the limit when it comes to the beautiful wedding day looks she’s created.

The hard part is figuring out what I want! Since I’ll be wearing a veil and crystal-pearl headband, I’m hoping to have a small knot at the back of my hair to help give those items some hold. But as for the rest of the style, I’m envisioning wearing my hair down and long, in curls, possibly even with added extensions. Maybe something along these lines…

As for makeup, I’d love a soft, romantic look that doesn’t overpower my fair skin. I can’t wait to share pictures after the session!

Have you done your hair and makeup trial yet? Which styles are you considering or planning to go with on the big day?

  1. Have a great time, and take lots of pictures of everything! I have no idea what to do with my hair at the moment, but I need to get cracking on booking a hair and makeup artist!

  2. I absolutely love all of those photos and even have the very last one in my inspiration folder! So pretty. Can't wait to see how your trial goes. I wrote about some unfortunate issues with my stylist in my post today :(

  3. Have an awesome time Heather! Take lots of pics!

  4. I haven't found a makeup person yet and I'm freaking out. I NEED a makeup person, as I don't have any idea how to apply makeup (I do what I can daily, but still look terrible) but have no idea how to pick a makeup person over the internet (planning a wedding in Seattle and live in Connecticut). Did you meet with your person before you booked her, or did you just veiw their portfolio and go from there?

  5. Thanks for the tips Heather. I appreciate it. I'm going to start looking into finding a makeup person soon.

  6. Can't wait to see pictures!

    I went curls for my trial. And then on the morning of the wedding - I just wanted straight.
