Ugh just had a hair and makeup trial which cost me $175 and I hated both.  Makeup was awful, didn’t do lashes and forgot to put on any lip color.  Hair was ridiculously  frizzy (and I have nonfrizzy Asian hair!’) and the updo looked nothing like my inspiration pics.  She only spent an hour and 15 minutes.  Such a waste and this person is highly rated. I’m so mad I wasted so much money on such crap work.  Thinking of going to a salon ano just doing my own makeup.  I know I do it better than this lady did.  Ugh sooooo mad.  Sorry had to vent but just wanted to say I understand!

I was so lucky, because the best man is a hair dresser and my friend is a make up artist, so they did my hair and make up. My only problem was ME.

I did two trials, and chose the hair and make up from the second trial. My hair dresser did exactly what I want, it was perfect, BUT, I still think I should’ve chosen another style for my hair. A week later I was still crying, like a baby, because I was feeling really insecure about how my hair was lol

So, if you have the money to spare, I would chose the make up artist you liked the most, so you won’t regret after your wedding. Good luck 🙂

I had a really bad hair trial. After 3 hrs and 3 updos I was just done. I kept my appt for the wedding day and just had my sister watch and make sure it was being done how I wanted. Luckily as I was walking in, another bride was leaving with almost the exact style I want. I said, “give me that!” It came out gorgeous! So if you go in knowing exactly what changes you want to make to the trial, it should work out. I didn’t want to spend any more money on trials, so I decided to wing it on makeup. I just asked to keep it natural and that worked out.

@babycakes24:  Totally agree with your decision.  My FI said the makeup and hair looked awful on me and agreed that i do it way better myself.   I dont understand how this person gets such great reviews and charges so much money and was really just so bad…  good luck!
