Four Things To Consider When Choosing Your Wedding Hair And Makeup

When the time comes to organise your wedding hair and makeup looks, unfortunately, it’s not as easy as flicking through a magazine and picking your favourite styles. There are a lot of things to consider like: is it within your budget? Will it suit you? And does it fit in with the overall theme of your wedding?

But we are not here to pile even more pressure on you brides-to-be. Rather, this post aims to give you as much information as possible so that you can make the perfect choice of wedding hair and makeup. A choice that makes you look and feel the most beautiful that you ever have. Let’s take a look at these four things to consider when making this decision.

  1. What is your budget?

How much of your wedding budget are you prepared to spend on hair and makeup? Some people use this element of their wedding as a way to save money i.e., doing a DIY job. However, others want to pay for a professional to take care of their beauty. It’s important to think about this early on. Hair and makeup tend to be considered after the big expenses like the venue, gown, food, etc. The last thing you want to happen is to realise you don’t have enough money in your budget to pay for your dream look.

  1. Who will hold the tools?

If you do it yourself, the advantages are you have complete creative control, and you will save money. But, you won’t be saving yourself stress. You’ll have to research styles, practise them and apply everything on the big day. If you have ever tried putting on makeup and doing your hair when you are nervous, you will understand how difficult (and sometimes frustrating) it can be. You should consider whether you are confident and calm enough to do your wedding hair and makeup yourself.

  1. How will you get advice?

Unless you are a beauty professional, you will probably want to get advice from somewhere or someone on what hair and makeup styles will suit your face shape and complexion. If you are having everything done at a salon or spa, it’s a good idea to consider the questions to ask at the day spa about your wedding hair and makeup. If you are doing your hair and makeup yourself, search for advice from reputable sources online and ask your friends and family for their opinion.

  1. How will you choose?

Of most importance: you should feel utterly beautiful and comfortable with the look. Your hair and makeup should suit your individual features and complexion. They should be practical, and not cause you stress or irritation during the day. And, the look you go for should not be too different to the theme of your wedding. For example, a super-slick up-do wouldn’t typically fit with a boho style wedding.

Now that we’ve discussed what you need to consider, it’s time to start planning. We are completely confident that you will choose a hair and makeup look that will make you feel and look at your most beautiful on your special day.
