hair/make up trials?

Hi Everyone,

I just got engaged two weeks ago. I live in Boston, but I'm getting married in Westchester in August. How many trials of hair and/or make up do people do? I found some recs here on the knot ,but it is hard to do multiple trials, esp when you have to pay.

Any thoughts?

  • I didn't do any but that's because I was married 3000 miles from where I live.  I think most people have just one and they work out all the kinks during that time.  I would go into it with pictures of what you'd like and not leave until it's what you plan on having for your wedding day.

  • I did one hair trial and two make-up ones. The first make-up trial was airbrush makeup, which I ended up hating, so I went back for that and also got my hair trial done with it.

  • I'm doing a 2nd trial the morning of my final fitting. I originally wanted my hair up but it didn't look right with my dress. I'm doing my makeup myself because there isn't really anyone good where I'm getting married
  • I didn't have any trials.  It cost an extra $75, so I just didn't have one.  I did have a consult where I brought in pictures of what I wanted my hair and makeup to look like, and also brought my hair accessories.
  • Usually you only get one trial however if your MUA did a horrible job you may want another MUA to do another trial. But if you just want to make minor changes one should be fine.
