I booked a makeup trial for before my wedding date but I am waffling on a hair trial. I (think) I want the classic chignon and from her portfolio my hair stylist is a master at them. I have classic straight blonde hair, easy to work with and it’s never presented a challenge to any hairstylist I have seen before. Curious to know who booked a trial, or didn’t, and if you had any regrets either way? It’s the same price to have the trial done as it is to have it done the day of my wedding so I’m effectively doubling my hair and makeup budget by doing trials for both. Thoughts?
I was lucky to book my hairstylist so I don't feel the need to get the hair trial, I trust her and want something simple. Make up artist I got a friend who I used to work with, she includes a free trial so I will do it.
I would highly recommend spending the budget and get the trials unless you know them, I heard too many horror stories from brides not getting it done and ended up hating their hair.
I booked a trial - I personally think you should go to one. I was able to try 3 different hair styles and ended up loving the last of my 3 choices. I went in with a specific style - wanting it for MONTHS, tried it on me and I hated it.
So you may surprise yourself if you try different styles.
I didn't have a hair trail. I sent my aunt photos of what I wanted for my big day and she nailed it! Everyone is different on what they want but if you really want a trail before hand go for it, there's no harm in that.
OMG definitely get a hair trial! I wound up with one MUA and I hated my hair. Lkng story short, I booked with another MUA and her trial was perfect. Exactly what I wanted. Day of, she knew exactly what to do.
I would recommend a hair trial. I get what you are saying, sounds like there is very little room to have anything screwed up with the style you're having but, you just never know. I for example had my hair and make up trial together and the stylist did two slightly different styles on me and I literally preferred one over the other based on how she did my make up and it was a low chignon with two curled pieces framing my face so very classic hairstyle as well. Mind you, she could have made this small change on the day of but it gave me confidence coming away from the appointment that I knew exactly how it was going to be so I personally don't regret the hair trial - gave me piece of mind which is priceless when planning a wedding lol.
