When it comes to booking your hair & makeup appointment for your wedding day, you have two choices. You can go to a salon or the hair & makeup artists can come to you.
As for a on-site Professional Makeup Artist, I'm going to tell you why having your hair & makeup done on-site is the way to go:
Most salons are not tailored for the bridal party. You have to remember that salons also have to service their regular clients on top of your bridal party. Which you can also run the risk of running behind. Keep in mind that your photographer will have to try to avoid photographing other salon clients. Most salons don't have the right lighting for your makeup artist.
Having your hair & makeup done on-site is a much better option. It allows the bride her bridesmaids to relax because everyone is together in one place. Most of the brides I work with get a bridal suite at their venue or at a hotel. There’s no need to worry about having to transporting dresses, shoes, accessories, etc. because once hair & makeup is done, everyone can get dressed in the same area.
As a on-site makeup artist I will come in and set up. I will bring in my own lighting made just for makeup artist called (THE MAKEUP LIGHT). This white light is by far the most versatile color of light because of it can be reflected by any color. This means colored makeup looks truest under this light. Your photos will be much softer and more natural looking than those taken under the harsh salon lights.
If you’re trying to decide whether to go to a salon or to hire a on-site professional hair & makeup artist for your wedding day, I highly recommend going with on-site professional. The less stress you have on your wedding day, the better! Having your hair & makeup done on-site will definitely allow you and your bridal party to relax. You will not have to worry about a thing on your wedding day. We will make sure that you and your bridal party are well taken care of and done on time.
