Hair/make up

This may be a dumb question but how are you all arranging for your hair/makeup to be done?

A lot of places I have looked at are salons where the bridal party would go there to get both done but I see a lot of images where people are getting ready all in the same place and not at a salon but I'm not sure if this is just family/friends doing the hair and make up or if it professionals...

    Do you have a website for them? I googled but got a lot of results so not sure which one you used.

    I've been in weddings that did both. My MOH got married last August and all the bridesmaids went to the salon to have our hair done in the morning but had the makeup artists come to her house in the afternoon where we were getting ready.

    For mine I think everyone will likely be getting hair done by their own hairdresser - We aren't getting together until around 2 and I have a couple girls coming from out of town so they will probably use their own hairdressers. I have no idea what I am doing yet Smiley sad for hair - hopefully figure that out soon. In terms of make-up I am paying for the two ladies who did us for my MOHs wedding come to the hotel for everyone - they did such a good job last time I had to have them again.

    Im getting them to come to the hotel. MUCH easier and less stress to worry about travel time. Same for the photographers.

    I am hoping I can find someone to stay and do my touchups, just because I know I am probably going to be crying during the ceremony lol

    Ask them upfront what their travel fees are, if any so you know ahead of time. *sorry wouldn't let me update my first response.

    Yes I thought very reasonable. Neither of the girls charged travel fees.
    The makeup artist just has you come to her place for the trial to make it fair for driving. And was $65 with fake lashes.
    Hair lady lived in my town just a street over and was $50? Or somewhere close to that.
    Where are you located ? I can send you their info if interested.

    Are they staying until after the ceremony to do touch ups for photos or are they leaving right away?

    Is it a reasonable price? did they stay and do touch ups for the photos later or did they do everything and then leave?

    I found lots of option sin the Ottawa area for hair/make up to come to your location. My sister in law will be doing our hair and I hired a make up artist to come do our make up. They may have a travel cost depending but it seems less stressful and more comfortable to have them come to you!

    The girls and I all got ready at my moms house and had a hair/make up artist come to us (researched and found a business online). She came with her assistant and we had a great morning!

    Much more relaxing being in your own home/hotel room than travelling to a salon.

    And I think it makes for better pictures!

    I really like the idea of having someone come to the hotel and do everything, it really would be easier!

    I found a travelling makeup artist who works along side a hairdresser and they travel together. So my bridesmaids and I are all getting hair and makeup done the morning of the wedding together. Seems like it will take stress off

    Hey Candace, I'm getting married in 2019 but I am a mobile hair and makeup artist! Having worked both in a salon and freelancing I find it much easier for the Bride & Artists if it's somewhere comfortable for the Bride, its less stressful usually to get ready at your home/ hotel/venue and if planned out well by your team being hired timing works out better for the bridal party! Smiley smile

    I'm definitely planning to go with someone mobile for both hair and makeup. I've seen many people advertise that they do both..but even hiring one person for each if they are coming to you wouldn't be such a big deal. Small bridal parties make it easier (ill have max myself +3) and then I don't have to be running around feeling like I'm doing errands the morning of my wedding lol.

    Ask your photographer or post on a local site like yelp! You’d be surprised how many are out there!

    I hired a travel makeup/hairstylist company. They are local to our wedding location and come straight to you! So my girls and myself will be getting ready in my suite!

    Ooh, hadn't thought of having the make-up artist come to the salon. That might ease some of the time crunch I'm feeling. Although, the salon does have a make-up artist and I went with someone else so I would feel bad having her come to the salon!
