Hair and MU Trial .. when??

Wed Apr 13, 2011 5:34 pm

Did you book your Hair/MUA and then just have a trial a month or so before the wedding to pick the right style?

Or did you have trials with people first and then book them based on the success of that?

I'd like to book now but don't want to without having a trial and I think its too far away to be having trials .. But I won't book someone and then just have a go a month before .. what if they're sh!t??

I think the earlier you have your trial the better, in case you don't like their work. You could always change your styles closer to the day and have another trial, but at least you know you've got someone decent booked in for your date IYKWIM.

My hair trial is next week and my MU trial is the week after. I'm having them with people that came highly recommended so hopefully they will be awesome. If not I'll aim for other trials asap.

I had already used the hairdresser at my sisters wedding & the MUA was recommended by her so I wasnt too worried. I ended up having my trial one month before which was the morning of my high tea bridal shower. Worked a treat for me!

I've booked mine, but i can cancel & get my deposit back, so long as i cancel 2 months before the wedding or more.

That way, they are booked in & I can do my trial closer to the day.

If you are brissy based, they ar called Hair4Brides & makeup4brides...I havent booked my trial yet, though will be doing that when i get home from HK!

The man who I wanted to do my hair (family friend who did my hair for my brother's wedding) passed away from cancer a month ago (may he forever rest in peace) so I'm quite happy doing my own. But, my cousin will kill me if I don't get it professionally done, so I 'll be getting it done 3-4 months out.

I had my first trial about 9 months out, to make sure I was happy with who I had booked!

I had a second trial about 6 weeks before the wedding, where I actually finalised the hairstyle I wanted for the day.

I had my trial a few weeks ago and I've still got 10 months + to go. I'll have another one abit closer to with a BM as well so we can work out the BM hair styles.

i would recommend having trials before you book them....i ended up having three makeup trials with different MUA's before i was happy!

i did book my hair stylist through recommendations without having a trial though - quite a few i'd contacted weren't working the weekend of my wedding, so when she was available i booked straight away. Luckily, she has hair like mine, knew how to work with it and did a great job. i changed the hair style from the trial, and she did the new style on the day and it looked beautiful :)
