Hey Girls, I rarely post but am a very addictive reader. Im getting married in 8 weeks now, and had my hair and makeup trial today. I drove all the way to the central coast for it (im from sydney and the wedding is in the Hunter Valley). Anyway, it was a nice day to go up with mum and my sister. The 2 ladies were so nice, we had fun and a good chat and all that...BUT I am just not happy with my makeup or hair.
She put false eyelashes on, which looked fine but by the time i got home 1 hr later one of them was already falling off and in the next 2 hrs it did. The makeup in general was nice..im not used to wearing a lot anyway so in general it was fine but not awesome, like i would imagine it to be.
The hair - i just am not happy. I have thick and naturally curly hair, all she did was put it all in rollers, take it out and play around with it. I can do that myself. I had big dreams for my hair, and it just wasnt nice.
Now, im thinking of looking for someone else, and pay the extra couple of hundred, because now i see you get what you pay for (even though these people arent exactly cheap). So i need to find great people available for my wedding so soon and if i can i have to let these ladies down. I feel bad because they were such nice people and we all got along, but the more i think about it, the more i makes sense to let down 2 ladies i dont know, and get someone else i am 100% with....so what do i say to let them down? Has anyone been in this situation???

sorry, mamoth post for what seems like a small deal to everyone!

TIA Girls!

It's not a small deal, I know exactly how you feel!!! I had my make up trial done last week and all my friends said I look better when I do my own make up. Arrgh!! Not what I was after at all. You expect to look the absolute best you have ever looked and it is VERY DISAPPOINTING when you don't. I have opted to have another trial with the same girl, but this time I am going to tell her exactly what I want instead of letting her do whatever.

Although, in the back of my mind I think if you didn't get it right the first time what sort of professional are you. I mean, it' s their job. Still, she was very nice and I feel bad about cancelling her, however, if the second trial is shite I will and do it myself.

Get another trial with someone else, and if you are 100% happy with that cancel the first one. I don't want to walk around feeling just okay on the day, I want to feel STUNNING!!! I am sure you do too.

I had my make up trial a few months before my wedding and I hated it! I looked like a drag queen on steriods. I was seriously just going to stay with her though because I am lazy and couldn't be bothered looking for another one. My DH stepfather (of all people!) convinced me to get another trial and I absolutely loved it! Best thing I ever did.

It was uncomfortable telling the other MUA but so worth it in the end. Just to feel confident with your make up and hair is so important to the day.

Go get another trial straight away with someone else and then if you are still not happy you can always get another trial with your current one but be really specific about what you want with pictures and everything.

Best of luck!

I am going to take your advice and have another trial with someone else first before going back for another trial with the old one smile.gif Wish I hadn't of paid the deposit sleep.gif

Still, it' sonly 100 buck I lose in the end, better than feeling like crap

if you're not happy with the trial, then chances are you wont be thrilled with it on your wedding. you still have time to find someone else. possibly check with some of the I-Do girls who they used for around that area? Personally i think the best form of advertising is word of mouth. So probably the best place to start is on here somewhere.

Dont give up and fingers crossed you'll find someone who makes you feel every bit the glamourous bride you should be on your big day.
