In the meantime though, I have found a hairdresser and an esthetician for wedding day! It boggles my mind how expensive things are here, but such is life on a small island and I will have to suck it up! Despite the price tag, I am very happy with both selections. The hair stylist is great, and I have already set up 2 trials with him. I showed him the pic of what I want, as well as a pic of the dress, and he seems to think it will all work well together. Here's the inspiration picture I showed him, which I am sure you are all fed up of seeing in blogland :)
I'm not sure where I found this pic since its been saved on my comp for many many months. If you guys know pls tell me.
As for my makeup, I need to set up trial appointments with the make up artist, who also happens to be my MOH's cousin. I met with her and really liked the fact that she will come with me to the church and hang around doing touch ups until our big entrance at dinner! Our location/TTD shoot is the next day (a Sunday) and both were willing to accommodate this and drive the 30 mins to come help me get ready for that (this is already included in the price as standard practice here, just not on Sundays).
Our first trial will start with shades of light blue and gold, emphasizing the eyes, and going light on the rest of the makeup. I'll be sure to take pics to show you ladies as they happen.
How did your hair and makeup trials go? Did you find people easily and were you happy with their services?
