Setting up a wedding day schedule for hair and makeup

A wedding is a big event in one’s life. Planning for this event can be a daunting and stressful task. For a bride, this would also include putting together the hair and makeup schedule so that she looks her best on her big day. The getting ready process for brides can sometimes be overwhelming. In order to avoid this, below is a beauty timeline that shows how brides can schedule their hair and makeup for their wedding.

For a bride, it can never be too early to do her research on good and reputable hair and makeup salons. Consultant appointments should be started about 4 to 5 months ahead of the wedding. Doing so ensures that brides have sufficient time to undergo trial sessions without feeling the time crunch.

Take pictures of the finished work so that you can compare the work done by the various salons and choose the perfect one. Once you have shortlisted the salons, book the one that you like right away. This avoids any last minute schedule clashes.

Trial run

About 1 to 2 months before the wedding day, it is important for brides to go through trial sessions with the hair and makeup salon they have selected. In this trial run, the salons will go through several makeup and hairstyles with them.

This is done so that brides can get a feel of the various styles and decide which one would best suit them and the dress they have chosen. In short, the trial run will allow brides to decide on a complete look before the real day. While at it, brides should also ensure that they procure a few makeup products and keep them ready for touch-ups.

After determining what time brides would need to be ready, they can work backwards and determine what time the hair and makeup artists should begin their work. It might take approximately 45 minutes to style the hair, depending on complexity and about 30 to 40 minutes for makeup application.

Set aside sufficient time so that stylists do not have to rush. Brides might want to start to start with their hair styling before proceeding to makeup application, or vice-versa. Either way, there is no hard and fast rule to this.

Determining and sticking to a beauty timeline will ensure that brides do not fret on their actual day and can concentrate on looking their best.
