Wedding Day Hair & Makeup Tips

We asked Megan, once of the founders of Lauthr Salon to tell us a bit about why brides should think about hiring a pro to do hair and makeup. Take a look at this great info that Megan shares with us.  Content by Magen and Lauthr Salon. 

When Planning for your big day looking amazing is usually high on every brides list. Hiring a professional Hair stylist and Makeup artist is so important because we can help you get the look you want for your wedding without the stress of having to try and do it yourself. You should be pampered on your day and get to enjoy spending time with your friends and loved ones, soaking it all in. We also recommend meeting with us prior to the wedding day so we can try out the hair and makeup looks you are considering. This is helpful because it allows us to get to know you and what your style is and allows you to make sure you are happy with how you will look on the big day. We always tell our brides to do their homework and really have a good idea of the looks they like so that the trial is as successful as it can be.  

In our experience it is also a good idea to offer hair and makeup services to your bridesmaid's, your mother and the mother of the groom. Some brides even like to include other friends or family members. This makes for a fun day of getting ready together, but also insures that everyone will look their best and cohesive in your wedding photos. When it comes to your bridesmaids especially, not everyone needs to have the same hairstyle or makeup done, but having both professionally done will help them to also shine while representing you.

Here are some of the best hair and makeup tips we would like to pass along:

1. Always consider using airbrush foundation. It wears great and looks amazing in photographs, it is also waterproof which is great if you expect you may cry.

2. Consider adding false lashes to your look. If you are not fond of the large strip lashes you can do some individuals which look great and no one will know they are fake.

3. Make sure you have either a color stay lipstick or have a gloss that is easy to reapply without a mirror.

4. If you are having an updo done, dry day dirty hair works best.

5. Last but not least remember that you will only have this experience once so make sure you really make the most of it and enjoy every second!
