I think you’re pretty safe if you’ve heard good things about their work. I think a lot of brides go in for a trial, hate the result and end up not booking the hair/makeup person instead of instructing them on what to do differently. As long as they have the skills necessary to achieve the look you want, you can work with them to get your perfect bridal look. I had my makeup trial on Sunday and there were a few things I didn’t like about it (the color of eyeshadow and shape of the fake eyelashes), but I know the makeup artist did everything correctly, so I just gave her notes on what to do differently on the wedding day. And my hairstylist is great – he listened to everything I said and was willing to change anything about it I asked, so I know he’ll do exactly what i want.

I did since I’m having a Destination Wedding in Florida and can’t go there for a trial.  I made sure the artist I’m going with had substantial reviews and I looked through a ton of pictures (from their gallery and from actual weddings) to be sure.  Just make sure to do your research and you should be fine!

As long as you don’t have to give a deposit!  I lost my deposit…after two trials, she just couldn’t get it right, it was a nightmare!  Did it myself!

I booked without trying them out. I’m getting married in my hometown which is 3,000 miles away, and I won’t have a chance to get a trial until 5 days before the wedding! I’m definitely nervous about it, but didn’t really have another option.
