    DIY for me, even if I wasn't trying to keep my budget low. I'll be getting my sister and mum to help with my hair though, as they have for many fancier occasions.

    Totally DIY for me! Just purchased the rest of my makeup and I've been experimenting with eyeshadow looks and hairstyles. I'm going for natural with a bit of glam.

    Hiring a pro! I want as little stress as possible, want to feel pampered and want my hair and makeup to last the whole time!

    I'm going kind of in between! My mother has a good friend from childhood who is a hairdresser and we'll be asking her to do the hairstyles on the wedding day. My little sister and MOH is a makeup enthusiast, seriously she's amazing, and I've roped her into doing at least my makeup at the wedding, because I'm honestly hopeless at eyeshadow looks.

    Definitely hiring a professional for this. My sister is a professional hairstylist and MUA so I may enlist her to do it. Though, i think for once she would like someone to do HER hair and makeup!

    Leaving both to the pros.

    I am not that good at applying make-up to begin with, let alone for a fancy/special occasion. Smiley xd

    Nooooo I'm bringing in the pros! I know I could totally do it myself but it just takes a huge load of stress off for myself and my bridesmaids and my mom and my grandma, so it'll be well worth it!

    I鈥檓 planning to DIY my bridesmaids hair with this awesome curler 馃槏 https://www.amazon.ca/dp/b01b4ic3qk/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_jmhveb3nkws75


    For makeup my cousins gf (who is a makeup artist!) is giving us an amazing discount to do a light and airy look.
    I think I might pamper myself and go get my own hair and makeup done... I鈥檓 not sure yet!!
    My inspiration for hair and makeup:

    I am not someone to be trusted to do hair or makeup. It would be a absolute fail if I did. I have hired someone to do that for me.

    Nope not trusting myself to do my own hair and makeup for the day. The last thing I want is to attempt my own hair and then get frustrated if it doesn't turn out Smiley xd So I definitely hired a makeup artist and a couple of hair stylists for myself, my bridesmaids, and the women in the family if they want.

    Hiring a pro!

    It was so much less stressful to know that someone else was doing my hair and makeup. Didn't have to wait on someone else

    No DIY. I had a HMUA because I really suck at doing my own hair and I'm not too skilled with makeup.

    My moh is trained in hair and makeup and has offered to do mine and for bridal party (2 bridesmaids). I was thinking it would be nice to go get our nails done a day or two before with the bridal party.

    I've only ever gotten my makeup done professionally a few times so I decided to splurge on this one and hire a HMUA, I'm treating my bridesmaids and groomsmaids to having their makeup done too!
