Actually I should say we’re lucky enough in the San Francisco/Napa area that there is no true “bridal season”, it’s year round. Between fantastic weather and a variety of beautiful locations, it’s no wonder our stylists are just as busy in December as we are in March styling weddings. If you are one of the women out there planning a wedding, or in a wedding, you want to make sure you choose your hair and makeup team wisely. Always make sure that your personality jives with your stylist or styling team. Here are some tips for when you’re choosing your hair/makeup artist: When you meet for your bridal trial, have reference photos of hair and makeup looks that you like and, if possible, photos of your dress. Bring what you’re wearing in your hair so that during the trial you see what it will look like with a couple different hairstyles. Be open to suggestions. Sometimes the greatest looks come from a collaborative effort between you and your hair/makeup artist. Finally, smile… The most beautiful brides are happy and relaxed brides! So sit back, relax and trust that you’ve chosen a great team to beautify you on such a special day!
