i did my trial early…6 months in advance. it was either that or the week of the wedding, but i feel MUCH better knowing i have a hair/makeup artist that i like!

i say just do the trial now (as long as you have your dress). it’s a huge relief!

I think this is what I’m going to end up doing. My hairstylist is someone I’ve used to cut my hair. She’s never styled it for me, but I trust her so I’m booking her before the trial.

My makeup artist is someone I haven’t met but I know many other people who have used her and so I will be booking her before the trial. I’ve seen her work and it’s what I really want so I’m hoping that it will work out.

i sort of did something similar. I did have to leave a credit card number, since I have a bunch of people getting services the day of. i think it is pretty standard.

I’m going to another salon I’ve never been to (my hairstylist guy doens’t do updo’s. weird, i know) I called and booked hair and makeup for myself, my bridemaids, mother, and Mother-In-Law. I have never met my stylist/makeup artist /any of them, but will do a trial, so feel comfortable knowing I will meet them before the big day.

i think its good you booked it though – i would guess people get booked quickly! And since my wedding is a sunday, it was little tougher for me to find a makeup person and a salon that was open!

We had two hair/make-up people:  one for the ceremony and luncheon in Massachusetts, and one for the at-home reception in DC.  For the one in Massachusetts, there was no opportunity for a trial, because we arrived in Massachusetts only the day before the ceremony.  The one in DC did not require a deposit, but did a free trial.

I think if I were putting down a deposit, I’d want the trial before that.
