I’m just curious here. How far out did you do your hair and makeup trial? I’m going for mine today and my wedding is still five months away. The reason I scheduled it so far in advance is because I’m on school vacation and the salon is a bit of a drive and because I want to keep my options open incase I end up hating it. Now, I’m wishing I waited a bit longer, because I want her to remember what we end up doing with my hair today.

If this is when works for you, go for it!! Take pictures so you can remember better and remind her later. Have fun!

I’m actually doing several! The person I hired to do my hair is my regular stylist that I go to every 6 weeks. He is actually trying new styles at every appointment until we find something I love and then he’ll practice and perfect the style.
The make-up artist I hired recommended a trial no later than two months before the wedding.

citysparkle: I had mine about 7 weeks before; they recommended I have it 6-10 weeks before.

citysparkle: I think it really depends on what the purpose of the trial is for you. If you are trying to decide if this is the right salon or not, then further out would be better because then you have time to find somewhere/someone new. If you’re already sure about the stylist and simply are doing a run-through of your wedding day look, then closer is better because your hair/skin tone will be closer to your actual day.

citysparkle: I scheduled my hair & makeup trial 6 or 7 months out. In my area, there’s not many makeup artists that can do makeup well (in my opinion) for asians. I saw a lot of online portfolios where there was frosty eyeshadow that went from the lid all the way up to the brow area, which is just not a look that is flattering for me.
Luckily, I was able to book a makeup artist. Unfortunately, the hair stylist didn’t work out, so I am going to do my own hair.

I ended up rescheduling mostly because the roads were covered in snow that day. I’m doing my hair and makeup trial next week which is only a little closer to my wedding. It will be 4 months before. The reason why I wanted to schedule it earlier is because I want to make sure that I love the outcome and because the salon is about an hour away.
