Vendor Selections- Hair and Make Up



Of the many things to check off on the wedding to-do list, one important item is the hair and make-up stylist. This vendor is very important because not only are they tasked with the finishing touches of the day, but they are also someone who will be spending the majority of your wedding day with you and your closest friends and family. Making this a vendor you must get along with well and enjoy their company. Initially, I wanted to have my hair stylist travel up to Napa and do the wedding party's hair, as he has been the only person who has done my hair for many, many years. Quickly I learned that there is a reason he only does highlights and not up-dos, he hates doing them. I thanked him for his honesty and began my search for a make up and hair stylist to fit the bill.

After speaking with about five different stylists, I quickly learned that there are a few important factors in choosing the correct stylist.

  • Choose someone you can easily talk to and aren't overwhelmed by. This is someone you will be spending your wedding day with, an outsider who you maybe meeting for the first or second time, be sure to screen the person well- with an emphasis on their personality and how it meshes with yours!
  • Don't be fooled by their "fees"! As with everything attached with the word "wedding", the hair stylist and make up artist is no exception for increasing pricing and fees when they hear the job is for a wedding. Be sure to go through their quotes with a fine toothed comb, and make sure you know exactly what you're paying for.
  • On that note, don't be afraid to negotiate! Many of these hair stylists and make up artists are self-employed and can negotiate on pricing. If you love a stylist but they're too expensive, don't be shy to talk through the pricing and see where they'd feel comfortable coming down on pricing.
  • Book early! Many hair stylists and make up artists book up quickly and early. It's a surprisingly competitive market, and this is a vendor you don't want to have to go with plan C for.

Have fun in the selection process, and definitely take the vendor up on a trial run if they're offering!
