What to Look for When Hiring a Hair and Makeup Artist

The day of your wedding you are going to want to look your best. You’re going to have the perfect dress and accessories, but your hair and makeup is what is really gonna pull that whole look together. In this episode, we are going to be talking to Jasmine Doublette of Jazz It Up Artistry about what to look for when hiring a professional hair and makeup team for your wedding day.

Do Your Research

When you are looking to hire a wedding hair and makeup artist, it is so important to do your research. Many times brides are going to get a list from a vendor that they’ve already hired. Whether it is a photographer, a venue or a wedding planner, they usually have a list of preferred vendors that they have worked with. These lists are great because they have already vetted them and know that they do a very good job.

If you’re not working off of a preferred list, using the Internet is a great tool to vet your vendors. Platforms like Instagram and Facebook, allow for hair and makeup artist to showcases their work. This platforms will provide you with the most up to date work of the vendor, especially Instagram Stories. Also, don’t forget to check their reviews.

Only Use a Licence and Insured Professional

Making sure that you are hiring a licenced and insured hair and makeup artist in Orlando is extremely important for many reasons. For one, they have done the work on the education side of the beauty industry. Yes, it’s nice to actually have the talent, but the education side plays a big part. Education teaches hair and makeup artists on the importance of sanitation and how to properly sanitize. Preforming services on large groups of people and working with a variety of proper sanitation it critical so they are not spreading any type of infection not spreading.

Also, education allows the hair and makeup artist to learn the techniques that go with each face shape as well as each hair type. This is important, so come the wedding day when they show up they have the knowledge and skills to work on anymore, regardless of hair type or skin tone.

Finally, most venues will require that all vendors working at the venue have liability insurance. The only way they are going to get that liability insurance is if they actually have a license to do what they are doing in that particular industry.

Find a Wedding Hair and Makeup Artist

Special occasion or an everyday hair and makeup are much different than wedding hair and makeup. Wedding hair and makeup have to last for a full day and a professional who is trained in this space with understanding and be able to produce results for this. Also, this goes back to education, but a professional will know what they are doing and let you know if what you are looking for will work with your hair and skin tone. Instead of just say “no, that won’t work”, they will be able to provide you with other options that will work to make sure that you are happy with your look.
