- Wedding: March 2013
So my first choice salon is not available on my day for wedding hair and makeup.
My second choice salon is only availible for wedding hair, but they have good rates, and can accommodate my group of 7.
I am 4 weeks away from the wedding and I am too stressed out to run around looking for another salon that can do both hair and makeup. There are other salons but most are very small and I can’t picture a party of 8 plus regular customers being in there at the same time. Plus I don’t really trust these other salons.
The owner suggested my family comes in an hour before me. They said I should come in at 9:30 am(the ceremony is at 3:30pm, but we are taking before photos).
He said I should wash my hair myself, then have my makeup done before I come into the salon. I am kind of worried that with them putting products in my hair, pulling my hair, curling it, hairspray, the heat from the salon could be bad for my makeup. And I would rather them start fresh and wash and blowdry my hair themselves…but that would certainly be a no-no if I had makeup done before the salon.
I’m kind of freaking out. Do I find a mobile makeup artist or a different salon to do my makeup, and then go to this salon for my hair? Or go to the salon earlier for my hair and get my makeup done after?
The owner at the salon asked me if I could just do my makeup myself! I know a lot of people do but I don’t trust myself to do that, I want to hire someone else to do it.
I’m know nothing about formal updos and makeup, I never went to prom so I have no idea what to do in this situation!!!
