I either need advice or a slap in the face. Or both!
I am the absolute worse when it comes to hair and make-up. I style my (long, thick, wavy) hair regularly in pinned up dutch braids because 1.) I can, 2.) it looks nice and 3.) it gets my hair out of the way. I can apply my own make-up in a "nice but still natural" way. However, I'm not good enough to do either of these things for my wedding day and would really prefer to hire a professional.
Finding a professional isn't the problem; my problem is once I go in for a trial I don't know what I want. Like, for make-up I want to look "like me but better," which doesn't really tell anyone anything I'm sure. But I don't know what "styles" I like because I really can't see a difference between "she looks normal" and "she looks made/glammed-up." I'm even worse about hair; I'm telling people that "I don't care how much hair spray or bobby pins you have to use, as long as it is up and pretty all day," and that's the extent of my caring. I'm trying to find pictures of up-dos I like but I just really, really don't care.
How important is it to come to a trial with pictures prepared? Would it be truly awful if I go in as clueless as I am? I feel like I'll like just about anything.
