On your wedding day, you want to feel like the most beautiful girl in the room. While the day is about celebrating the love between you and your future spouse, it also gives you an excuse to look your very best. For this reason, many brides choose to have their hair and makeup done professionally to ensure that it is perfect. In today’s post, we will give you a few tips on how to prepare for your hair and makeup trial so that you don’t waste time (and money) on a look that really doesn’t fit your taste.

Your hair and makeup trial is just one of the many things that you will need to cross off your wedding checklist, and as you get closer to the wedding, those tasks may start to overwhelm you. Luckily, if you live in Washington, DC, or the surrounding area, Serendipity Bridal & Events can help! In addition to offering a wedding boutique filled with gorgeous wedding gowns, we also offer event planning services to help you tackle your wedding checklist with ease!

Know What You Want

Before you go to your hair and makeup trial, it’s best to have an idea of the kind of look that you want. Do you want your hair up or down? Do you want your makeup to be dramatic and bold or more natural? Start by looking online at different looks to see if there are any that catch your eye. You will also want to keep in mind that some looks may be a little too complicated, especially if you need to style your hair as well as all of your bridesmaids’ hair in a certain amount of time.

Another thing to keep in mind is your dress. The style of your dress may also be a deciding factor of how you end up styling your hair and makeup. For example, if you have a classic style dress, then you may want to keep your look more traditional, but if you have a dress that is bold and makes a statement, then a more natural look might be out of place. Additionally, you will want to think about the detailing of your dress and how you plan to wear your veil — you don’t want long hair to cover up any gorgeous details of your dress.

Give Yourself Plenty of Time

You may feel pressured to cross items off of your wedding checklist as quickly as possible, but it’s important that you don’t rush the process. You want to have fun and feel beautiful on your big day, and that will be difficult if you settle for a hairstyle and makeup that you don’t absolutely love. Finding the right look may take a few tries, which is why it’s important to do a trial run. Don’t be afraid to be honest with your hairstylist and makeup artist and tell them that you aren’t happy with the look. They want you to look good on your wedding day just as much as you do, and not being honest and trying to rush the process will only cause problems in the long run.
