Ok so I had my bridal hair and makeup trial today, brought pictures and was pumped. My hair was so puffy and looked nothing like the picture. I told her what I didn’t like and she insisted she would fix it the day of. I was pretty upset because it seemed like a simple enough fix to just do then but she said with the hairspray it wasn’t worth messing it up because it wouldn’t look the same.
Then the makeup artist took my natural look and gave me black smokey eyes, way to much blush. And fake eyelashes that I think looked worse than my natural lashes. I told her I thought it was too much and she told me I needed it to be bold for the pictures and proceeded to show me how it looked fine on her phone- which it did, but in the mirror I was so unhappy.
Meanwhile all all the other women in the salon keep telling them how great everything looked even though I felt like a clown. As I was leaving the salon manager asked me how everything was and I told her my concerns and she just told me to come back for another trial, meanwhile this one cost me $215 already! She proceeded to tell me to leave a deposit because the summer books so quickly but I was like I’ll see, and she gave me the contract to take home .
So meanwhile 3 hours later my hair had completely fallen out (curls to straight frizzy over hair sprayed mess) and my makeup was wearing off patchy . While I had felt like all the things I disliked were fixable I’m not sure if I should give them another shot since they seemed to discount all my concerns today , meanwhile the second trial she offered wasn’t discounted just another bunch of money for me to shell out.
It seems like all the brides I’ve talked to had at least one bad trial. So my question is would you give them another shot or try elsewhere?
