Top 3 tips to selecting a Wedding Hair and Makeup vendor by Cassandra McClure
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Cassandra McClure who specializes in in luxury hair and makeup for weddings, boudoir and other occasions. I’ve asked her to provide some tips for my brides and grooms for selecting a wedding hair and makeup vendor. Here is what Cassandra said:
1. First impressions matter. Do you LIKE him or her? You should really get on great with your artist! If you have hesitations with their personality (even if their work is amazing) it is probably best to try someone else.
2. Do they have a DIVERSE portfolio. If the artist has 50 blue eyed, curly hair brides on their website its great if YOU also want curly hair, but what about mom and grandma? If the artist is providing service to more than 1 person, be sure to identify photos of clients that are similar in age, hair type and ethnicity so that you can be confident that your artist can deliver on all cases.
3. How quickly did they get back to you after inquiring? Did they offer more than 1 way to contact them? Communication is important and if they take over a week to reply to an email, in the form of a text message, you might want to reconsider hiring them! Its reassuring if the artist has been recognized in their industry (either by their peers or clients, or both!)
