    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.
