  • poll: Hired a new makeup artist; what should I do about my first hair/makeup artist?

    Ask her to stay on for wedding day hair only

    Cancel her altogether and find a new hair artist

    Something else (I'll explain in comments)

    Are you getting ready alone, or with your bridal party?


    I was in a similar situation as yours, and just told the original artist, that I wanted someone else to do our makeup so that my girls wouldn’t have to arrive to the getting ready location so early. She understood. Having two different artists also made the getting ready process much smoother.

    I think you should definitely go with the other makeup artist. As a PP mentioned – having a single person do hair and makeup for 4 people is going to take ages. You could use that as your reason for cancelling makeup with the first artist too, which makes it less personal. Say that as you get closer to the wedding you’ve realised your timeline is a bit tight and you’re planning to split the hair and makeup bookings to speed things up, and would she be ok with changing her booking to just hair? I wouldn’t think she’d get mad about that, after all it’s a still a booking and she might be happy to leave earlier.

    Having one person do both hair and makeup will take too long- keep the first girl as hair and hire the second for makeup 🙂

    There is no way even a professional can do hair AND makeup for 4 people in any short amount of time. We had 2 hair/makeup artists for 6 of us, and it took from 9am to 2pm. I would keep the first girl for hair only.
