When Should I Book a Hair and Makeup Trial?

September 15, 2022

Your pre-wedding hair and makeup trial is an invaluable investment in your wedding day! It’s a moment of collaboration, personalization, and assurance, ensuring that your bridal look will unfold with the elegance and confidence you’ve always envisioned. So, when should you book a hair and makeup trial? In short, the answer is as soon as possible, to give yourself the gift of peace of mind and the radiance you deserve on your wedding day!

Ideally, we recommend scheduling your hair and makeup trial about three to six months before your wedding day; we call this timeframe the sweet spot! This timeline provides ample opportunity to make any necessary adjustments and to also not make you feel rushed. Trust us, it is never too early to schedule your trial. Your Updos For I Dos artists are thorough note takers and heavily document the looks they create during a trial session with photographs so you can rest assured they will be able to recreate your looks with ease! Lastly, booking early also secures your spot with your preferred artists, giving you peace of mind as you turn your focus to other wedding details!

Why Should I Book a Pre-Wedding Hair and Makeup Trial? 

In the whirlwind of wedding planning, one detail stands out as exceptionally crucial: your bridal hair and makeup. We know we’re biased, but this time with your wedding day hair and makeup artists is truly invaluable! Your wedding day is not just about looking good, it's about feeling confident and beautiful throughout every moment of your most special day. At Updos For I Dos, we believe that a pre-wedding hair and makeup trial is a transformative experience that ensures your wedding day look is everything you've dreamed of and more

Feel Confident With Your Hair and Makeup 

A pre-wedding trial is much more involved than your typical salon visit. It’s an opportunity to solidify your vision for your wedding day and also get comfortable with your day-of artists! This is the moment when your ideas and inspirations come to life under the highly skilled hands of our Updos For I Dos stylists. Every brushstroke and bobby pin brings you closer to your perfect bridal look! This collaborative experience ensures that your final look is not just close, but exactly what you were looking for when you decided on your wedding hair and makeup vision. 

Hair and Makeup Customizations

Understanding your glam vision is key! Before your trial begins, our artists provide thorough consultations, reviewing any inspiration photos you provide. Even if you're uncertain about what you want, our expert artists know how to ask the right questions to create a look that not only enhances your natural beauty but also fits your personal style! This personalized approach pretty much guarantees that you will fall in love with your hair and makeup, resulting in a look that feels authentically you!

Confidence on Your Wedding Day

The morning of your wedding should be filled with joy and anticipation, not anxiety! A pre-wedding trial ensures that you can relax and enjoy every moment leading up to your "I do" with absolute confidence. You’ll know exactly what your hair and makeup game plan is, which will allow you to sip your mimosa and soak in the excitement of the day without any doubts! Our artists are not just professionals, they’re your wedding day bestie, and they are there to make sure you feel most comfortable and cared for.

Glam Inspiration

Scrolling through Pinterest, Instagram, and TikTok for bridal looks is a great way to gather ideas, but how do you know if those styles will suit you? Your pre-wedding trial is your chance to test out these inspirations and see how they align with your unique features and personality! This way, you can be sure that your final look is not only trendy but also perfectly tailored to you.

With that being said, plans can change, and so can your vision for your bridal look! At Updos For I Dos, we understand that you might have a sudden change of heart or a new idea close to your wedding date. Whether you decide to tweak your look after the trial or find a new last-minute inspiration, our team is here to adapt! Your happiness is our top priority, and we are happy to make adjustments to ensure that you feel absolutely fabulous on your big day.

"I especially want to pass along my thanks to Andy and Dana who absolutely crushed it with every single lady. Everyone was gushing over their makeup looks thanks to Andy’s magic touch. Dana rolled with the punches like a pro when I had many changes from my trial look and I truly adored how my hair turned out. They make a great team and were so kind and had perfect vibes for a fun getting ready morning. They worked efficiently and were patient with each and every one of us. I can’t sing their praises enough!”
