If you think your hair will be longer, different colors, or different in any way then it is too early.  Also, if you think your skin will be darker/lighter or different, then I’d wait on that too.  But if you’re wanting to see their style on you to make a firm decision on booking them, then you might want to do some sort of trial run now to make sure.  

I did my hair trial about 5-6 weeks before the wedding.  No makeup trial though, I did my own.

I actually did a “trial” in November with a makeup artist. I did it because I had a social event. Although I liked it, it did not move me. I still have her booked…no deposit required, but I will have another trial with another artist in January. I have a feeling, that I will like her better.

I think you can do it now, just in case you decide you want to change anything. If you are set on the vendor, then I would wait like the previous poster said.

I’m also having a custom cake topper made and want it to look as close to “me” as possible. I have to send pics soon. UGH!!!

i’m doing a trial next week for my june wedding, but that’s because i’m getting married out of town and happen to be there then. as long as you don’t decide to chop off your hair between now and then, you’re fine!

I think that doing your trial on your engagement photo day would be perfect amount of time in between! That’s what I did for mine, sorta. I had my normal hair stylist do my hair for my engagement pictures last August just to see if she was good doing updos, etc. It turned out really well and I’ll definitely be using her again.

@Tswife4ever: it’s not too early, unless you plan to dramatically change your hair style/hair volume.  5-6 months is the ideal time to book your hair/makeup vendors
