forgive my naivety, but are hair/makeup trials usually done before you book your stylist or after you book your stylist? It seems like most people do their trials after they’ve already booked, just as a way to figure out what they want to do with their hair and makeup on their wedding day. But don’t you need to have a trial in order decide whether you want to work with that stylist or not? If you don’t do a trial before, how did you decide on your stylist?

I’m having a friend who I know does awesome hair do mine (she owns a salon) so I booked at the time I booked the trial… but what you should do is look at her portfolio (any good stylist will have a portfolio- if they don’t, they probably arent very experienced and you dont want that on your wedding day).. if you like the portfolio, book with them and if you’re unhappy with the trial, cancel your booking

i think this is why hair and makeup artists make you pay for a trial just in case you don’t use them. they don’t want to waste their time.
as for me, i booked my stylist based on her website and a referral, and my trial will be a week before the wedding.
