Advice on Finding the Right Hair and Makeup Artist

The most important day of your life is approaching, and hair and make up is probably the last thing you want to be stressing about. Whilst some women prefer to do their own hair and make up on their big day, others decide to hire a professional make up artist. It is recommended to hire a professional make up artist to give you that flawless look that will really show in your photos. Hiring a hair and make up artist may be that little extra cost but it will save you a lot of time and worry.


Whilst we don’t all have a dab hand with the foundation brush, many professionals do. Hiring the perfect make up artist is absolutely essential to give you that wedding look you’ve always wanted. So how do you go about it?

Word of mouth

There is no marketing tool as powerful as word of mouth. Ask your friends, seek recommendations for a good make up or hair artist within your price range.

Search online

If you haven’t had any recommendations through friends then search online through blogs and forums. This will heighten your chances of finding a well-established make up or hair artist that is accessible to you. Search the internet for make up artists websites as this will display their portfolios so you can have a look at their previous work and determine whether they are right for you! Search the web for the perfect wedding hair and if any make up artists mirror the style you desire then go for them!


Before hiring a make up artist you need to make sure that they are going to be available on the date – this is crucial! Furthermore, you may want to ensure they are located not too far away from you to prevent delays on the big day. It might be a good idea to have a back up plan to avoid any wedding day disasters!


You might not yet know what kind of make up style you want to achieve on your wedding day. Even if you haven’t got a great artistic streak, it might be worth watching some make up tutorials and practice on yourself just to get an idea of the colours and products you might want your make up artist to use. The same goes with hair; it can easily go wrong if you don’t know what you want so get a good idea in mind of exactly the look you want to go for!

The great thing about hiring a make up and hair artist is that they can achieve the look you want and also advise you on what style and colours will suit you. Book in advance to avoid disaster, and hire a great photographer to really show you off on your special day!
