I did three trials and all of them only included one look, with two minor exceptions.  One trial she did one side of my face one way and the other side another way (very discombobulating) and on another she did my hair down and then up.

I didn’t like any of them, so I am still looking.

My person did one makeup for my entire face (I loved it and used it for my e-pics later that day) and she tried about 6-7 different hairstyles on me.  My trial was over 3 hours long!  But my person is a free lancer so that could explain why she did so much.

MissBlueBear — where is your lady located.  If she is in So Cali can you PM me with her info?

I just had one for my hair trial, but I knew I wanted an updo and we were able to zero in on the best bet for my hair from the four inspiration pics I brought in.  Some stylists are flexible, but if they are busy or book up quickly, it makes sense not to spend a lot of time without charging a bit extra.  That said, it would be great to find someone a little more flexible/willing to try stuff out, especially if you’re not sure how you want it to go.

Caliotech,

I’m so sorry…my lady is located in New York…so sorry to get your hopes up!  Perhaps if you search the boards for So Cal Makeup/hair you may find someone in your neighborhood.

for my hair trial – we tried five different looks in only two hours – she was amazing – we did all down in curls, then, half up, all up and then, two other updos.  for makeup – it was just one trial for my engagement photos and I could tell her what I really liked (which was like 99% of everything!)

mssmartypants,

My hair and makeup trial only covered one makeup look but my hair person was willing to do more than one hair look. I just ended up loving the first one so much I decided not to do the second. She was offering to bring it down so I can have both looks on the day-of.
