A couple of weeks ago Meg Clouse with Blushing Hair & Make-up was so kind to sit down and do a fun instagram LIVE Q & A with me. We got to chat a little bit about how she went from a small crew of sisters to one of Charlotte’s top hair and make-up companies in the wedding industry. I just adore her and the way she cares for her clients. In the LIVE, Meg answered some frequent questions brides have for her. If you are a bride about to start your search for a hair and makeup professional, this summary of our chat may be a great resource for you:
“What makes the best bridal trial?”
-Communication! Being open about what you like and don’t like. Allowing the artist to get to know you and your skin and hair, as well as try products on to make sure they work for longevity.
“I like so many different looks how can I choose the perfect one for the big day?”
Online consultations are part of each of our bridal packages. This includes talking you through what looks might best suit you and your needs. Also talking through things at the trial run is the BEST way to make sure you find a look that suits you and your needs.
“There are so many hair and makeup vendors out there, how do I pick the right one for me and my wedding?”
Find a reputable vendor via referral from photographer, planner or friend and check out their social media. Social media is an amazing tool to make sure your vendors align with your aesthetic and can create and accommodate your desires for your big day!
“How can I make sure I look great from my first picture until my last?”
One of the things we ask our brides to do at the trial run is to wear their makeup all day and send us feedback about how things felt/settled. This ensures that the correct primers and setting sprays are used for YOU and your skin type and ensuring a long lasting beautiful look all day long!
