Wedding Day Hair & Makeup Checklist

Congratulations! You meet the love of your life, you make a ton of memories together, and when the moment is right, you get engaged. Planning that fairy tale wedding day you have been dreaming of now begins. A lot of your planning happens on the front end and back end of your big day. Finding ideal vendors for your ceremony and reception comes first, making sure that your wedding date is available, and then in depth planning and details begin.

Then, you find your dream dress and start to envision what your hair and makeup will look like. Maybe you think about what color you want your hair to be for pictures, or how will it look with your dress. It is important to begin planning these details early and to begin to build your relationship with your hair and makeup vendor to create a stress-free start to your wedding day.

Reserving Hair & Makeup for your Wedding Day
It is never too early to reserve your glam squad for your wedding day. The most important things to think about are location, photography timeline, and space. Spark is the perfect space for a wedding party. We can accommodate any size party for both hair and makeup services. Enjoy complimentary orange juice or make mimosas while you enjoy relaxing in comfort knowing that everything is taken care of. With an open concept, you will be able to enjoy making memories with your wedding party while being pampered for your big day. Having a larger space and a glam squad with multiple stylists also helps for you to enjoy your hair and makeup services faster to move you onto the other events of the day. You can also invite your photographer to come during your appointments to capture shots of you and your wedding party getting ready.

Bridal Hair Color
If you are wanting to see a big hair color change before your wedding day, it is important to start scheduling your appointments early. Consulting with your stylist on the desired end result helps to create a hair color plan to map out how many color sessions will be needed before the wedding and how close to the wedding day you will want your final color service done.

Bridal Hair & Makeup
Begin saving images that you are attracted to for your bridal hair style. This will help you to see what direction you are wanting to go in for your wedding day. Also, think about if you want to wear a veil, or any sort of accent in your hair. We suggest scheduling a bridal trial appointment for hair and makeup 4-6 weeks before your wedding. It is a good idea to try and plan your trial appointments around dress alteration appointments, that way you can go to your dress fitting and see your total look all together. During your trial appointment your stylist/makeup artist will also inform you on things to do in preparation for your appointments the morning of your wedding.
