I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all had our fair share of bad hair and makeup days. They’re just one of life’s little, albeit unavoidable, inconveniences. On the majority of these occasions, it’s usually best to accept the fact that you look like you just rolled out of bed and move on with your day. That is unless it also happens to be your Big Day.


If there’s one day in particular that requires perfectly coiffed hair and a flawless face, it’s your wedding day. And it is for this reason that booking both a hairstylist and makeup artist is an essential item on your list of to-dos.

Just as you would approach a potential venue with a handful of questions in mind, the same goes for finding the beauty professionals for your wedding. Before signing on the dotted line, you’ll want to make sure that all of your needs, from the trial run to the day-of, will be covered (like what happens if your makeup artist gets sick and can't make it to the wedding). We suggest you start with these 10 questions and go from there.
