Hey, we’re wedding day twins!

I had my hair and makeup trial a couple of weeks ago, but that was because we’re having our wedding about 2 hours from where we live. We had to meet with a few vendors so we arranged to meet everyone on the same weekend.

Why not contact your makeup artist and see what she thinks? You could show her pics of what you’re getting if you want to do the trial earlier. But to get the full effect of how it will look on the day, it’s probably best to do it once the hair is done.

Is she just doing makeup or hair too? If different people are doing hair and makeup, then I’d try to do both on the same day so you can see how it will all come together. 

As for what to expect: I’ve got the same person doing both hair and makeup. She talked with me for a bit at the start to get an idea of the look I was after. I had some pinterest boards of hair /makeup looks to show her which really helped. I had some hair accessories l wanted to use as well. I also took the two dresses I have been trying to decide between to wear and she gave some suggestions on which she thought would work best.


Good luck! I love the oil slick style dyed hair, post pics when it’s been done!
