Go Pro for Your Wedding Day Beauty

By Amanda Perry with Amanda Perry, LLC

Let’s set the scene: you’ve got all the major details locked down for your big day, including the venue, the photographer, the cake, and, of course, the dress. You are so excited because your “friend” is going to do your hair and makeup for you and you won’t have to factor in that cost. She’s the friend who’s always done your hair for prom, the one who just happens to have some talent and so she’s happily agreed to do your hair and makeup.

Fast forward a few months before the wedding, your friend decides something better has come along and she leaves you in a bind. (You wouldn’t believe how many times a year this happens to brides!)

Now you’re scrambling to find someone that can accommodate your 10 bridesmaids and the rest of your wedding party, which is impossible because every salon you call is booked with regular hair care clients on Saturdays!  How dare they! Don’t they know it’s YOUR wedding day!

This is one of the most important days of your life and all eyes are on you. The pictures will be hanging on your wall forever. Don’t you want to be as polished as you can be? When looking for hair and makeup companies, choose an established business that specializes in wedding day services. This will ensure a professional, organized team and will set the tone for the getting ready process to be smooth and fun. There are so many amazing companies in the Richmond area that will fit every bride’s style and budget. Make sure you are signed on with someone who has a contract to ensure they follow through on their end of the bargain too! You don’t want to be left again with someone who cancels.

On-location hair and makeup teams come fully prepared with all the makeup, curling irons, bobby pins, and more to help you create the perfect look for your special day. Consider having a trial with your stylist to make sure you are both on the same page with your final look. Plus, at your trial, you’ll get to know your stylist better and you can connect about all the details of your celebration. They’ll get to know all about your groom, your wedding colors, your dress, and all those girly things that you have been itching to talk about with every single person you meet!

Stylists love what they do and have a true passion for weddings. They take all the stress out of getting ready and let you relax and have fun in their chair, and when you get up and look in the mirror, you’ll see picture-perfect bride or bridesmaid (and you didn’t even have to put down that mimosa to hold a curling iron!)
