Preview Prep Sheet
We want to make your hair and makeup preview the most positive experience we can! So, take a minute to review some important preparation details below:
Share your wedding day inspiration!
Fill out the form link that will be emailed to you. Upload your inspiration photos of hair and/or makeup so they can be shared with your artist(s). Along with these photos, please upload a selfie.
But please be realistic!
Our stylists are incredibly talented, but not magicians! Remember, social media photos are often heavily edited. Hair styles with extra thickness or length often involve extensions. Consider your hair type when choosing a style.
The same goes for makeup.Inspiration is great, but let's keep it real! Many makeup photos are heavily edited. Embrace your natural beauty, and trust our artists to enhance your unique features authentically. Let's make your dream look a reality!
We come to you!
If at your home, if possible, we recommend that very young children and pets are not present. Remember --this is your time to get pampered! Artists should not be asked to go up or down more than one floor or flight of stairs or work outdoors. Please cover carpet and valuable tables if necessary to avoid damage.
Our artists specialize in elegant, timeless soft to medium glam bridal makeup.
Full-glam-extreme contouring makeup and heavy eyes are to be requested before trial. There is an additional fee of $50. See photo.
Please mention any product allergies you may have. Feel free to wear makeup or come with a clean, moisturized face. Practice good skin prep at least two weeks prior to your trial and add exfoliation and moisturizer to your weekly routine.
Lashes are included with all bridal trials.
Brows should be groomed/waxed/tweezed. Artist can pluck a few hairs, but full brow grooming is not provided.
Please mention if you'd like to try airbrush makeup prior to your session.
Hollywood Glam Waves or Retro Styles require more time, talent and an additional fee of $50. Please request this look ahead of your preview as you may also need to purchse clip-in extensions to get this on-trend look. See photo example.
Bring your hair accessories and veil if you have them. If not, your stylist will be happy to discuss what options are best. Check back with Dana to get some suggestions on where to purchase - WE SELL THEM! GO TO WWW.BEAUTIFULBRIDESHAIRANDMAKEUP.COM/SHOP
If you want to use extensions at your preview and they need to be trimmed, we are happy to do that for a fee of $25. Please let us know before preview so the stylist can be prepared with their sheers.
Hair should be clean and DRY and do not flat iron, as it's harder to curl and put into an up-do or down do. Feel free to use product but nothing that weighs hair down. If you are thinking of cutting your hair before the trial, please discuss with owner before making that decision as most tyles require hair to be as long as possible. Have your hair colored/highlighted as it will be for the wedding.
How long will it take?
Do you want more than one look?
A Few More things . . .
Typically, a hair and makeup preview session takes about 2-2 1/2 hours. Hair or makeup only about 1- 1/12 hours.
We are more than happy to give you more than one hair or makeup look. Just let us know ahead of your preview. This may take extra time and an additional fee.
What to wear . . .
We love animals! But for the safety and sanitary well-being of everyone, animals should be kept away from the ready area if at all possible.
Try to wear a top that is a similar color and cut off the top of your wedding dress. Avoid anything button down or that you have to pull over your head.
Dana, the owner, will reach out 24-48 hours after your preview to see how everything went!
Artists love a tip for a great job! They take cash and Venmo.
