Do You Need A Wedding Hair and Make-up Artist?

If you are confident enough to do your own hair and make-up. I have seen this by many brides. It can be a great way to have control of your look on your wedding day.  However, if you are in any doubt at all. I recommend you hire a professional for your wedding hair and make-up.

Finding The Perfect Wedding Supplier in Norfolk?

Start doing your research early.  Many brides will hit Instagram as a great resource when searching for your professional wedding hair and make-up artist.  If you have been to another wedding recently and you loved the way the bride looked on their day ask for recommendations.  Look on websites at the supplier’s portfolio.  Maybe use Pinterest to create your own selection of looks you like.  You can then show this to the professional wedding hair and make-up artist for advice and inspiration.

While you are doing your research. It is important to make sure, as with all your suppliers, that you check out the business’ online reviews.  Take the time to read reviews from previous brides.  You can also ask your wedding videographer and photographer if there are any hair and make-up artists they recommend. A recommendation from fellow suppliers of who they have worked with in the past can, on the whole, give you a really good place to start.

What A Professional Says

“When searching for a hairstylist, I would highly suggest someone with lots of experience in weddings; getting ready is a massive part of your special day and you want it to feel relaxed, super fun and stress-free; a pro hairstylist can provide this; they know how to schedule for the morning taking into account your time needed with the registrar beforehand, time for photos and all of the little things that you wouldn’t have thought of, but from there experience will make a massive difference to the running and calmness of your morning.

They will be able to create a style which is the flawless version of yourself that will last all day and they know what looks good on camera, so they will be looking at things from a different perspective as to what someone who doesn’t work in the wedding field would.

I would highly suggest looking at the stylist’s portfolio and Instagram; if they show a range of styles it generally tells you they can deal with a range of hair types and textures and are confident in designing a style bespoke to you.”
