It’s your big day, and I get it, you want everything to be perfect. From the perfect photographer (eh hem hiiiiiiii!!!) to the most gorgeous location—your wedding day should be spectacular. And obviously you want to look your best, but why pay for something that you already know you can do, and do well? Here’s why it’s important to consider hiring professional hair and makeup artists in Las Vegas on your big day.
I could sit here and write an entire novel about how a bride’s hair and makeup absolutely, undeniably, effects how her wedding photos turn out. Even with a skilled photographer (hi again!), having your hair and makeup done professionally makes a world of difference. This is because the camera exposes flaws that we sometimes don’t notice with the naked eye. When you think you’re totally glammed up, to the camera, your makeup may end up looking a bit basic.
Professional Makeup Artists Go Way Beyond Applying Pretty Makeup
When brides get their hair and makeup done professionally, they’re often taken aback at how done-up they actually look. If you’re not used to seeing yourself wearing high-quality makeup products designed to last all day, you may think you look a bit overdone. However, I promise you that to your spouse-to-be, your friends and family, and to the camera, you look amazing. Heavier makeup translates well on camera, particularly if it’s done by someone who knows how to naturally contour and reshape your face to bring out all of your amazing beauty. With a real professional makeup artist, there’s no such thing as being overdone. I can confidently say that’s because a true professional knows exactly what they’re doing, and how much makeup to apply to look absolutely gorgeous on film.
It might sound scary entrusting your looks to a stranger on your wedding day, and that’s ok. It is a bit scary. That’s why it’s important to do your due diligence and check the reviews and past work of vendors before you hire them. You want to make sure that you are ready to fully trust someone to make you look as stunning as you’ve always dreamed of being on your wedding day.
Hair Today, Gone When the Weather Decides to Destroy It
Likewise, you may be inclined to do your own hair or have a friend do your hair on the big day. But, as cliche as it might seem, the unexpected really does strike during wedding days. From unexpected weather to not knowing how to attach a veil properly, it really is worth having a professional around to ensure your hair is beautified to the max.
Not only do professional hair stylists know how to cope with every kind of hair, but they also know and will prepare you for the steps to take prior to your big day so that your hair is perfectly prepped and ready to go. And then there’s weather to consider. Gusty wind and rain are every bride’s nightmare on their wedding day, but having a professional hair stylist will help your hair stand up against even the harshest weather.
Your wedding day is a day that you’ll remember for your entire life. Your photos will be among the very first of your very own family heirlooms to pass down to your children and your children’s children. And though hiring a professional hair and makeup team is an added expense, it is one that you’ll not regret. If you’ve been considering skipping hair and makeup as a way to save on wedding expenses, do reconsider. Being pampered on your wedding day may end up being your favorite part of the day (besides the photos of course!). 😉
