Questions to ask your Hair & Makeup Team

1) How flexible are you in regards to time? 

Wedding days almost never run perfectly smooth.  No matter how hard you plan sometimes, things happen.  That is why it is important to get a hair and makeup team that can adapt to bridesmaids running late.  Sometimes they do 2 or even 3 events a day, and if they are scheduled to leave in a certain time, they may feel like they have to rush through your bridesmaid's makeup so they can leave and get to the next wedding.  That is why in our opinion, you should always try to get a team that is designated to you and only you the day of the wedding.  This way, they can take their time and do the job right. 

2) How early can you start? 

This is SUPER important because depending on the size of your bridal party and the time your ceremony or first reveal is, sometimes we have to start with our couples as early as 6 or 7am.  That means when we arrive at the start of your wedding day, that your hair and makeup should be 100% completed.  Which means you need to start hair and makeup even earlier that that!  Before you hire your hair and makeup team, make sure they are up to the task and can accommodate any time frame that you request.  You would not want to plan your entire wedding and then a few weeks prior to your wedding have it ruined because your hair and makeup person could not start earlier. 

3) What packages can we work out prior to the wedding day?

Each person is going to have their own set of pricing and packages for hair and makeup.  I would speak to your bridal party and find out EXACTLY what the want services they want from the hair and makeup company.  One of the most stressful times in the day is the start of it, when everyone is finishing up their hair and makeup and it is time to pay.  Girls are running around looking for change, if you know what you are going to do prior, you will know how much it costs, and you will know to have that exact amount ready when your hair and makeup is complete.  This saves countless time, and eases the stress of the wedding day.
