When booking any kind of beauty vendor for your wedding, there are a few things you need to do, and keep in mind while looking for the perfect person.
Firstly, consider the cost. There are hair stylists suitable for all different types of budget, no matter how big or small yours is. Meaning there’s no need to forgo a professional, salon look just because budget is tight. But, don’t spend beyond your limits.
Enter into discussions, or negotiations, with potential hairstylists knowing the figure you can spend. Obviously, it will be difficult to work out how much that should be to begin with, and the cost will vary wildly based on location, experience, and reputation of the salon. Even if the job is essentially the same. Our advice is to browse the listed hair stylists on Wedding Planning Assistant, check out places in your local area, and cold call 5-6 to get a feel for how much it should be.
Once you’ve got an idea of general pricing, find somewhere that suits your style. Scroll through their Instagram feed, look at their website and see if their past work matches up with the type of look you have in mind.
Create a shortlist of potential hair stylists that fit your brief, and pay them a visit. If you can go in person, give them a call, rather than just message them. The more interaction you can have with the person putting together your look, the better. After all, not only are they going to be doing the hair of you and your bridal party. But they’ll also be spending all the wedding morning with you. Therefore, it’s important that you like them!
When negotiating with a hair stylist, be sure to stick to your guns, and don’t go over budget. With some vendors, it can be all too easy to say yes to everything, accepting every fabulous extra service they can provide. Especially when you’re unsure of exactly whether you need it or not.
Agree on a look you want, and a price for it that suits you both. And don’t ruin other parts of your wedding budget by overspending.
Beyond looking at websites and social media, the only real way of knowing if a hair stylist is right for you, is by booking trials. These practice sessions are best done with the stylists you definitely like, and who suit your budget, but you’re unsure of the difference between yet. Try to do as many as possible (within reason), and arrange them for a few weeks before the wedding. A pro-tip, if you’re planning an engagement photoshoot, book your hair trail for the same day. That way you get to try out the stylist, and you get professionally done hair for the shoot. Even better, try to schedule a makeup trial for the same day too, that way you’ve got the whole look!
Arranging a hair trial to coincide with your engagement shoot will also allow you to wear the look, and see how it feels when moving around, hugging and dancing etc. Whether you have your hair done for a photoshoot or not, it’s wise to live with the trial look throughout the day, to ensure you feel comfortable in it. And that it survives the rigors of an average day.
