What To Know When Booking Your Wedding Day Hair & Make Up Artist... Part One!

Written by The Powder Room on Saturday, 18 December 2010

With 2011 about to start, Powder Room stylists are really looking forward to such a busy year.

We'd like to help our Brisbane brides plan their Wedding hair and makeup with some helpful tips and important questions to ask when booking your Wedding day hair and makeup stylists.

Some of the questions to ask when booking your Wedding day artists:

Q. How do I guarantee the reputation of the Wedding artists I'm booking?

A. Ask your friends, work colleagues, family for recommendations. Read Wedding forums and ask other reputable Wedding suppliers, eg your Photographer, Wedding venue, etc. Also, look at the Website for images of real brides. Check out other blog posts by The Powder Room for the latest testimonials and pictures from our previous beautiful brides. (A sneak peek below)

"Hi There,
I was so happy with my wedding day hair and makeup - Tracie did an absolutely fantastic job and I know I will definitely be recommending the powder room to other brides. I have attached a few hair and makeup photos for you.
Thanks again

Q. Should you make an appointment to meet with the business for a consultation?

A. Sometimes it's great to go and see the businesses environment and learn more about the quality of the products they use. Remember we all relate in different ways, some are more visual, feeling orientated or auditory. Powder Room offers complimentary 15-minute cupcake consultations in our new Farm studio by appointment. We can chat about the look that your inspiration for the Wedding, whether it's vintage, old fashioned romance or sophisticated elegance to name a few....

Q. Is the same artist that looks after you in the trial looking after you on the Wedding day?

A. An important question to ask because it's great to be able to meet with the same stylist at your trial who will also be pampering you and your bridal party on your wedding day. At The Powder Room, we always send out the same stylist to look after your wedding day hair and makeup as you met at your trial so that everything is just perfect for the big day!

Q. How much time is allowed for your Pre Wedding day hair and makeup trial?

A. Your pre Wedding trial is one of the most important parts in the planning of your Wedding day hair and makeup, and Powder Room trial is at our intimate Bridal studio based in New Farm, just 5 mins from the CBD. On the Wedding day, we provide a full mobile Wedding service and can come to your home or hotel. We do also have an intimate bridal studio for those wishing to escape everyone. Powder Room stylists allow double the time to that of the Wedding day, ie 1.5 hours for a makeup trial and 2 hours for a hair trial. See Pic below of the beautiful Kelly McNamara after her trial on the weekend!

Q. What happens if your Wedding day look isn't exactly what you had planned at the end of the trial, especially when you have paid a deposit to secure your artists?

A. For your peace of mind, The Powder Room offers a "Powder Room Promise":

Our commitment to you!

We are truly passionate about our brides. Our commitment is to listen and to work with you, to create your dream Wedding look.
