Kindly advise on this as i am getting close to my wits end.
My wedding is in August and I am yet to get a makeup artist and hair stylist. My wedding is to be held in Pittsburgh because of family but i currently do not reside in PA and i dunno any MUA or hairstylists there. I’m African so i am leaning towards an African, African-American…..Any stylist really and MUA who is good and can handle african hair <and extension ;)>. In any case, searching online hasn’t yielded anything because most of the those listed require a minimum bridal party count or are really expensive. I am a DIY bride and our wedding is going to be very intimate without a bridal party but i want to look stunning so there lies my problem.
Anyways I could use recommendations please.

I’m not sure if you’re still looking or not but I actually just stopped into the local Sephora here to purchase makeup for the wedding and many of the girls there are actually doing travel hair/makeup on the side! They’re typically all girls in cosmotology school or just out of school who are doing it very cheap ($50) for the experience and reviews. Plus, you get to have your trial right there in the store so you can have them do it for you and make sure you like it! I loved the girl that did mine, she did a fantastic job!

smg5281: thanks for your response dear. My photographer recommended someone i could use. She is a hairstylist and does makeup on the side too. I will be having my trial soon but i spoke to her and she seems really cool with a reasonable price.
Thanks again for your response. I was beginning to wonder if no one used MUAs in pittsburgh around here 🙂
