    I can’t speak for your fiance, but I don’t think mine pays enough attention to my hair/makeup to even be able to tell if he’s seen the look before when our wedding rolls around. I’d be more concerned about making sure the style lasts! You could always remove the headband or switch it out with a plain one after you take some photos so he doens’t see EXACTLY what it’ll look like on the day of.

    SeptBride2Be23 :  I let my FI see my hair and makeup. It didn’t ruin anything for him and I actually really appreciated his opinion.

    EDIT: I have a beautiful hair comb piece that I wore for my hair trial. I left it in when I saw my FI. I know that when I’m fully “done up” with my dress and everything, it will still be a special moment. I should probably mention that my makeup and hair were done on separate days, so he couldn’t see that complete look all at once.

    I had the same predicament and ended up doing the hair trial and allowing FI to see. After looking back at photos from my trial, I also realized there were a few things about my look that I want to change on the big day, so it will still be a little different from what he saw. 

    The way I see it, hair and makeup is just a fraction of your wedding look. He won’t get the full effect until he sees you in your dress, veil, accessories, so it will still be special for both of you on the big day (:

    I did my hair and makeup trial and told my FI he was taking me out for a night on the town because I never get dolled up LOL. On the day of, I will be making little tweaks to my hair and makeup, so it wont be the exact same, and I know it will look totally different with my dress on, so I didn’t mind that he saw me all done up.

    I like the getting dolled up and going out idea!

    I was in your exact situation, and I let my FI see both my hair and makeup trials. Incidentally he hated them both (both were a bit too over the top and he prefers me more natural), and I was able to use that advice to make sure they both looked perfect on our wedding day, and we both loved how I looked then!

    I voted for you to do the trial and let him see so that way you have some piece of mind and you know how the hair piece will look. I don’t think it will ruin any element of surprise because he won’t see you in your dress. A date night is an added bonus 🙂 

    Btw, do you live in Helotes or just getting married there? I live very close by. Just curious!
