I booked mine 10 months ahead lol… but certainly I wouldn’t be leaving it later than 3 months.

Usually you book when you have the trial, which can be anywhere from 4 to 10 months in advance. But if you already know you’ll love it, I would just book it XD

I booked a year in advance as she came as a package with my hairdresser.

I tried to book one year out but the minimum was higher so I waited until 6 months out to book at a discount. They came to us.  But I would book asap, makeup artists and hair for weddings gets booked up fast.

Just to get into a regular appointment it takes a minimum of 3 months, so for a wedding that you need a specific day, I’d recommend 6-8 months prior.

I booked mine 7 months out. But you should just book it asap. Then it’s one more thing you don’t have to worry about. They book up far in advance.

@ chillbee29   I booked my hairdresser last week for an October wedding. 

One thing to keep in mind is that wedding hair/makeup are different than just going to the salon. They use different techniques and products to ensure your style and face last all day/night. 

If you have someone in mind that you like, I’d say book now. It’s certainly not too soon, and you’ll be kicking yourself if you can’t have the stylist you want because you waited.

@ chillbee29   If you don’t need your hair and makeup to last all day/night, you might want to call it an “event” rather than a “wedding” The wedding tax is real…

I guess a lot depends on how popular they are. The team I went with is highly sought after; they do a lot of work for catalogues and magazines, and I didn’t want to miss my chance to work with them. 

If you are more flexible about who you work with, it may not be necessary to book more than a month or so in advance. 

It really comes down to how set you are on a particular stylist or salon. If you wait, there’s always the chance they won’t have availability. If you’re willing to take that risk, so be it. 

Even still I would ABSOLUTELY book no later than 6 weeks prior.

@ chillbee29   I didn’t mean to imply your wedding was any less a wedding. It absolutely is unquestionably a wedding!

I just meant to say that in some cases, you’ll get charged more for services that are labeled as a wedding rather than just an event.
