Wedding Hair and Makeup | Why You Should Hire a Professional

Why You WANT a Hair and Makeup Artist For Your Wedding

Your big day is around the corner and if you’ve been wondering whether or not to hire a professional hair and makeup artist, I’m here to tell you, YES!  You have expectations of your day, right? Like, I don’t know… say, looking your best! Now you may be thinking, I’ve already paid for so many other wedding day services, are you sure I need one? Again, I say, YES! Whether you choose to have one for engagements, bridals, and wedding day, or all of the above, here are a few things to consider in deciding to hire your own. Believe me, you won’t ever regret having a Hair and Makeup Artist (HMUA) there for you on such a big day!

Wedding Makeup

Back to the expectations you have for your day. You’re paying a professional photographer to capture you at your best so why not have a professional make you look your best?! You need to find that someone who has the talent to bring out your natural beauty and keep you looking flawless and radiant on your wedding day. This is a photographers dream! Even the slightest bit of high quality foundation applied by a professional, that sees your natural beauty and then magnifies it, means getting you photo ready in a way that will make your best features pop. Think about getting that close up that could potentially reflect high definition pores, redness, and other imperfections. I mean, I CAN edit you to look fabulous. That is part of what you’re paying your photographer for. I’m just saying, a little makeup can go a long way when it comes to being in front of a camera. Let your wedding day hair and makeup artist do what they do best and let them help you look and feel your best!

Wedding Hair

We’ve covered the importance of makeup but what about hair?  You do your own every day so why would your wedding day be any different? Well, ever woken up to a bad hair day? The last thing you want on your wedding day is a BAD hair day! Think about it. Do you want the added stress of trying to get that last piece of hair to curl when it’s got a mind of it’s own? Don’t even get me started on what I call the frizz halo that occasionally sneaks up as the day goes on.  A professional hairstylist will have all the products and know-how in their arsenal of hair tools to get your hair looking it’s best and finishing it in a way that is sure to last all day and even all night long. However, don’t settle for just anyone that can do a “wedding up-do.”  You want to find a stylist that will work with you and your ideas while staying true to you.  If you never wear your hair up then don’t get talked in to a fancy up do. A good wedding day hair and makeup artist will keep your look natural and in line with you and what you like.

Take Time To Feel Beautiful

Having a flawless and radiant face, and keeping your hair in place doing what it should, is clearly a must for your wedding day and photos but I haven’t mentioned to you my personal favorite of hiring a wedding HMUA; the pampering. We all know that weddings are stressful and there is a seemingly never ending list to get ready.  Adding one more thing like doing your own makeup or hair may seem fine but think about how AMAZING it would be to take some time for yourself while you sit and be pampered.  You don’t want to show up for any photo session frazzled from rushing through your own makeup and hair routine.  Take some time to sit and have the professionals take care of you.  I promise you it will help you get relaxed and ready to show your beautiful self off! Like I said, you won’t ever regret hiring a hair and makeup artist  for your wedding day or photos.  It’s your time of life to look beautiful. You’re ready for that next big step in life so go ahead and show off that beautiful person you are!
