8 Things Every Bride Forgets To Do Before Her Hair And Makeup Trial

You have the dream dress and the right accessories, but none of that matters if your hair and makeup isn’t perfect at the main event. To make sure your look is beyond beautiful, make sure you don’t forget about these eight crucial steps.

1. Give yourself enough time. You’ll likely have to go for two to three trials before you find the right hair & makeup pros or even the best bridal look for your big day. So don’t forget to start making appointments at least three months before the wedding.

2. Prep your hair. Before you go for a hair trial, wash and blow dry your hair the night before–you can even do it two nights in advance if your hair isn’t on the oily side. Hair that hasn’t been washed the same day is actually easier to style.

3. Groom your brows. If you haven’t paid that much attention to your brows, start doing so ASAP. If shaped correctly, they “complete” your face. Ideally, you will have been going for a professional shaping well before your first makeup trial so that you have time to grow in certain spots if needed.

4. Bring your veil. If you’re wearing a veil or any type of accessory in your hair, be sure to bring it with you during your hair trials. It is an essential part of your wedding day look, so you can’t make a final decision about your hair without it.

5. See an esthetician. Just like your brows, you want to pay attention to your skin well before the wedding day. Whether it’s waxing certain areas or getting a monthly facial to get your skin looking its best, start those beauty regimes before you go to makeup trials.

6. Bring your best photo inspiration. You’re probably looking at tons of photos for hair and makeup inspo. Try to narrow it down to three to five faves before you start your trials. Looking at so many different styles can be overwhelming for you–and the stylists–and focusing on just a few looks will help your makeup and hair pros figure out what you really want and create a style just for you.

7. Take a photo of your dress. Your hair and makeup pros probably won’t get to see you in your dress until the big day, but it will help them immensely to see a photo of your dress beforehand so they can consult on the best styles and looks that go with your gown. So have one of your bridesmaids snap a photo of you (front and back) in your dress at a fitting that you can bring along with you to the trials.

8. Wear white. Whether you’re wearing white, ivory, blush or another color, wear a shirt in that same hue during the trials.
