I was excited to have my hair & makeup trial today but was feeling a little sad that I don't have my mom or sister here (I live out of state) and I don't have close friends here so I had to go by myself. Background info - I'm originally from Colorado and moved here to be with FI who is in the Army.
It wasn't just that I was alone today, it's because I've been alone planning the whole thing, except when my mom came out to go dress shopping with me. I don't know anyone well enough to have had any parties or showers which I know aren't that important but ... it has been a lonely process, ya know? I don't really have anyone to share this with, except FI and you know that guys don't get excited about stuff like this. He is supportive though.
So ... I went to my hair and makeup trial and this guy has gotten GREAT reviews on a few wedding sites. I've had him cut my hair twice now and loved it. Today I felt like he was rushing and in a hurry to get out of there because he was off work after me. I didn't wash my hair today because I thought he would so it was all dry and had nothing done to it prior to going in. I don't know about you but once my hair is dry, it doesn't style well. He curled it okay but then threw it up with my little headband then started on my makeup. I guess I wasn't very specific because I almost cried when I saw my face. I had way too much on (I don't usually wear a lot) and I didn't even really look like me. I had liquid foundation (usually wear powder) so I looked all shiny and thick with makeup.
After, I did tell him that I want a more natural look ... I want to look like me but done up a little more, ya know? I also asked if my hair would be curlier on the day of and he said yes then gave me instructions on what to do before he gets there on the day of.
I went to my car, poured water on a napkin and wiped off what I could while trying not to cry (the whole "alone" thing has been building). Sure enough, I'm sitting in my car and he walks outside and goes to his car to go home. I knew he was rushed.
I trust that he does a good job, so many reviews say so. Maybe it's my fault because I wasn't specific enough and he's not a mind-reader. Now I'm just a little worried that I will look bad at my wedding, hair and makeup is so important! I'm like the polar opposite of bridezilla - I'm too nice and I don't speak up. I hate that.
I need words of wisdom, I feel so down right now.
