Let’s be honest, you do not have to be a professional to do your own hair and makeup everyday and are perfectly capable to walk out the door without looking ridiculous. So when people ask, “Can I do my own hair and makeup on my wedding day?” the answer is yes. However, if you ask, “Should I do my own hair and makeup on my wedding day?” the answer is probably not.
In this blog, we will discuss a few reasons why it is best to hire a professional hair stylist and makeup artist on your wedding day:
The way you do your hair and especially makeup may look beautiful for an everyday look, but this is your wedding day! Often times, your everyday look may appear washed out on professional photos that you will show off for years to come. You want to make sure you look flawless and like the glowing, radiant bride you are, in person and in your photos! In case you get a little teary eyed at your ceremony, a professional makeup artist will make sure all of your makeup is water resistant and long lasting.
2. Chose the Perfect Hairstyle for you
There are so many styles to choose from and Pinterest seems to have no end in showing gorgeous hairstyles. How do you decide what hairstyle you want and what will even work for your hair? A professional hair stylist can help you decide what kind of look will match your wedding dress and the theme of your wedding day. They can guide you to hairstyles that will work best with your hair type, makeup, and may even suggest hair extensions if you are craving some longer or thicker hair. A professional hairstylist will also be able to make sure your hairstyle lasts all night long and looks perfect until your grand exit!
You only get married once and you deserve to feel special on your wedding day! Sit back and try to relax while a professional hair and makeup team gets to work for you and your bridal party! Drink some mimosas and enjoy spending time with your girls, all while getting pampered!
The chances are, you are paying big bucks for a photographer to capture stunning shots of your wedding day. You want to look and feel amazing, not only because it is your wedding day, you also want the confidence to rock your wedding day look captured in your photos. After the wedding is all said and done, you will walk away with beautiful memories to hang on your wall, so make sure you feel absolutely gorgeous. By hiring a professional hair and makeup stylist, who has experience in weddings, you can feel confident that your makeup will be picture perfect and last throughout the whole day and while you dance the night away!
5. Less Stress
There are so many things going on during your wedding day, the last thing you want to worry about is your hair and makeup. I suggest finding an on-location team to come to you. This will allow you to relax with your bridesmaids and family and even have fun! It will be difficult to do your hair and makeup yourself while you are stressed and anxious. Instead of stressing out about creating a flawless look on your own, why not spend the extra time soaking in the big day!
I know there are so many aspects to planning a wedding, however, be sure to add professional hair and makeup to you checklist! You won’t regret it! Looking and feeling beautiful and having the confidence you need on one of the most important days of your life is priceless.
Congratulations and best wishes,
