I’m getting married in 6 monts (!!) in SoCal but on a low-ish budget. I’m not from the area but I will be moving out there 2 months before the wedding. I’m not sure how to find someone to do my hair/makeup and not pay a fortune. I can’t really use word of mouth since Fiance is the only person I know there.
Did you just call around to different salons or how did you find the place you used? I googled around but all of the business I found are ridiculously expensive. Guide me!

I used the girl and her company that my friend used and many people used in my area.
I know others read reviews online, go to counters at the mall like MAC (free with a purchase), do it themselves with practice.

I looked at online reviews and pictures from the stylist’s website and/or facebook page.

My planner recommended her and she was highly recommended online.

@thursdayschild: Our venue gave us a list of recommended vendors. I chose one of the salons off of the list. It wasn’t cheap, but I really loved how my hair and make-up looked on the wedding day.

craigslist contacts. Then looked at their fb pages for pictures. Also, yellow book for a few places with websites who had prices on them.

I looked through wedding wire reviews and pricing to make the first cut, then started e-mailing potential MUAs. I really clicked with my MUA’s personality, and she recommended a hair stylist that she frequently works with. They were a great team, and I was very happy with my selection.

I searched Yelp. Ceck out Alpha from Sweet Fuss. She’s Awesome. You can find her on Yelp and Facebook. She does hair and makeup. And shevwill come to you.
