I would contact your local salaons or friends who have recently gotten married.  Or you can go on the knot, click on the ‘in your area’ tab and then click the beauty link.  They usually have the alot of places listed!  Good luck!  Also, sometimes the venue you booked for the reception has lists of suggested vendors in the area, might not hurt to ask them too!!

do you hvae time or can you squeeze in time to go the local beauty school and ask for a hair and makeup trial?? i think their prices are discounted so maybe you can "shop" different stylists??

if you have a sephora near you – maybe you can hire one of the people "under the table"??

 For hair I actually looked up reviews on Citysearch or Yahoo local, and looked for reviews that actually mentioned weddings.  I also asked people at my venue.  No luck with the make-up though.

Get in touch with a SCAD student, they’d be able to point you in the right direction for a professsional stylist.  Otherwise, yea you’d have to sit down and have them do your makeup.  Mary Kay’s site has a local finder so you could find a Mary Kay rep too, look for a ‘director’ and you’ll find they’re better than a ‘beauty school’ trained person as they actually do more faces.

I found mine through here.  She got good reviews here as well as on Project Wedding.  I’m still in the process of getting a trial with her.
