At Indian Creek, we know that as a bride, making sure that the morning of your wedding goes smoothly and seamlessly is super important. You want to be sure that you are relaxed and having a nice start to your day. That is why it is super important to carefully pick who you will be surrounded by on the morning of. This will usually include your bridesmaids and usually some family.
Many brides choose to have their mom and soon to be mother-in-law included in the getting ready process. They will typically have their hair and makeup done as well as the bridesmaids. Even if they don’t, you can still include them by having them be present while you all get ready!
You want to be sure that you select a great team to help you with your entire wedding process. This includes caterers, DJs, wedding planners and bartenders. This definitely includes your hair and makeup team as well. If you hire a team that you trust, you won't have to worry that things aren’t getting done or being done correctly and you can spend your morning relaxing and getting ready for your big day stress-free.
Consider your budget
Of course, when picking your team you need to be conscious of your budget. Be sure that whoever you are looking to hire fits well into your budget. You don’t want to find yourself going into debt over your hair and makeup team, so be sure that you can find someone who can do what you are looking for, but won’t break the bank or take funds away from other important elements.
One of the most important things to look out for when choosing your hair or makeup artist is to choose one that truly listens to you. Almost everyone has experienced a time when they went into the salon and came out less than satisfied. You definitely don’t want to feel frustrated or misunderstood on your wedding day, so be sure to be conscious of what type of vibe they are putting forward. Be sure that they aren’t trying to force their opinion on you and are there to really listen to your vision and help you make that a reality. This goes for any of your helpers on your wedding day.

The best way to find a great hair stylist for your wedding day is to look at many different portfolios. Figure out what type of style and look you are going for and try to find a stylist that has accomplished that many times throughout their portfolio. After you have found a couple of options, contact them and get a quote. A great way to get some ideas and suggestions for this is by asking your current hair stylist. They will usually have a couple good suggestions to give you. It is always nice to choose someone based on a friend’s recommendation.
When choosing your makeup artist, it is also important to check out their portfolio. Be sure that their style matches what you are looking for and that they look capable of completing your vision. While it is important to do a trial run for both the hair and makeup, the makeup is extra important. You want to be sure that the artist can match your skin tone, blend properly and complete the exact look you are looking for. Be sure that they are available and willing to do one or a couple of different trial runs until you get the look you are searching for.
