I paid for a trial for both hair and makeup.  So did my friend who i am Maid/Matron of Honor for.

A makeup artist cannot live on reputation alone, pay her for her time, but make sure you get what you pay for.

I’ve never heard of a hairstylist or makeup artist who doesn’t charge for the trial.

Everyone I contacted about doing makeup charged for the trial. I ended up DIY-ing because makeup costs would have been so expensive.

Trials are a really good idea. You can go over what you want and dont want, and see what its going to look like. Maybe after a few minutes after, you’ll decide you want something else.

The trial is not meant to be free. I have never heard of a professional artist (hair or makeup) not charging.

Ditto what PP said. I paid about 50% of what the actual day-of costs for the trial and it was just that. It’s not refundable or credited towards the day-of or anything.
