Im so excited that bridal season has started! Many brides have already booked their hair and makeup consultation for their upcoming wedding, and in this blogpost I wanted to share with you what happens during our meeting.

The reason why meeting for a consultation before the wedding day is important both for the bride and the stylist, is to make things run a lot smoother on the wedding day. Its a day when you should be happy and excited and focus on your big day, and just sit back and relax while having your hair and makeup done.
Its great if you can share your ideas for the wedding. Is it a beach wedding? formal/casual? Or perhaps a special theme wedding, whatever you decide the first thing I recommend before meeting for the consultation is that you know which wedding dress you will be wearing, that way we can create a beautiful style that goes well with the dress. I also always recommend to look for hair/makeup inspiration images that you can send beforehand to your stylist, just to get an idea what kind of style you like.

A consultation takes about 2 hours and its great if you bring with you any accessories you will be wearing. Then after discussing what I mentioned in the text above, we start trying out which hair/makeup style that will look the best on you. Sometimes it feels right straight away and sometimes you need to try different options first. Its important that you give your honest opinion, as during the consultation we have time to try different options -but not so much on the wedding day 😉
Another thing to keep in mind is that it might feel a bit strange to have a bridal hairstyle and makeup when you are in your normal clothes, when the wedding dress and accessories are in place, it will feel totally different.
If you have any questions or would like to book a consultation, we are looking forward hearing from you!
Best wedding regards,
