i am currently thinking about hair and makeup artists, and i am running into a situation i wasn't expecting: i always thought that i would have the hair and akejp trials before i booked these artists just to make sure that i like them. but in talking with some of them, it sounds like people book them first and then have their trials closer to their weddings. my wedding is not until september and i plan to grow my hair, so i don't know that it makes sense to do a trial until the summer. how do most of you go about this? do you book someone and then do your trial later, or do the trial first? if you book without the trial, how do you know it is going to be the look that you want later? thanks for your help with this one!
