Should I do hair and makeup trial at home?

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if I should do a hair and makeup trial at home first. I won't have time to do a trial in Mexico. I have my inspiration pictures and am wondering if it would be necessary to get trials done by people that won't be doing my hair and makeup on the actual day. At the same time, I've never had my hair or makeup done before, so maybe it's a good idea to go in and see what it would look like? Not sure what to do!

I personally think it's a good idea! The hairstyle/makeup that you have as your inspiration might end up looking alot more different on you than you expected & IMO that's not really something you want to find out on the day of your wedding! I would say go for it!

i didn't have a trial for either, but knew exactly what i wanted for hair and makeup. i knew that my hair would look fine in the chosen hairstyle, and wanted my makeup to be neutral colors w/ my eyes popping.

if you've never had your hair done, i'd say go for it...if you don't want to spend the cash, you could get your makeup done for free at a makeup counter.

Totally agree ~ a trial run is good in case you want to modify the style a little to better suit you. Plus getting made up is always fun, so why not?? smile159.gif

Absolutely get a trial done!!! I think it might be helpful to see the style on you than on someone else. The other thing is you can make sure the style works for you. You never know - you might want to "tweak" a few things from your inspiration pics!!!

I am having a hair trial done before I leave to mexico too. I am just going to take those pictures with me as well to Mexico so they can recreate it. I wanted to make sure I liked it before I had them do it the day before!

Totally agree with Lauren about makeup... go to the department stores and have them make you up for free. I did get my hair done before going, but it honestly looked different on my wedding day. Similar, and I'm glad I got it done because I was stressing, but don't expect it to be identical...

Okay I didn't do either but it's up to you and how important your chosen style is. I had a BM do makeup because she used to do it professionally so I trusted it would turn out well. Hair I wanted simple and it turned out fine. If you have a specific look in mind and are nervous about it then a trial wouldn't hurt.

I think I will do a hair trial at home with my stylist... that way we can play around and see what works. When I find one I like... I'll take tons of pictures to bring with me. I've heard the stylists at my resort are great at reproducing from pics... so I think this is the best way to go.

I think it's a good idea to get it done. Plus it's always good to test out how your hair will hold a particular style. For example, maybe you want soft waves but you find out your hair goes flat after 30 mins. That's a good thing to find out before the wedding.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
