I’ve seen the good, the bad and the crazy when it comes to wedding beauty services, mainly wedding day hairstylist and I’m here to help ease your mind and answer real raw questions as a hairstylist.
My name is Rebecca Mousseau and my company Phairis Luxury provides hairstyling and makeup services to our affluent brides around the globe. Myself, I’ve been a bridal hairstylist for 12 years and I truly love what I do! I enjoy every moment of meeting with my brides for their consultation and being by their side throughout their wedding day. I share a special bond with my brides and I’m so blessed to be able to do what I do. I am actually sitting at the airport now, on my way to Canada for two weeks to style two very special brides!
I compiled a list of questions I often get from
This is a no-brainer. Absolutely you should have the same artist on your wedding day that did your consultation months before. I personally have never done a trial on a bride and then sent someone else on the wedding day.
How would that stylist know what to do? They’ve never worked with your hair and that’s additional stress and unprofessionalism that you don’t deserve on such a special day.
Your hairstylist and/or makeup artist is the one who helps you determine your final look and in most cases, you’ve talked with them numerous times, emailed back and forth and together came up with the perfect style. So to conclude, this is an important question to clarify with your artist before giving a deposit.
At the end of the day, if they don’t see anything wrong with this practice, I would urge you to find another company and ease any unnecessary stress on your wedding day.
Do your homework ladies and research your companies well. Reviews will tell you so much about the artist you want to hire and will either put your mind at ease before booking or make you question whether they are a good fit for you.
Also, make sure your stylist/makeup artist has a backup plan in case God-forbid something happens and they cannot make it to your wedding. (I actually got held up in customs and had to send one of my artists one time.) Things beyond our control do happen but it is up to your artist to ensure a backup plan is in place and they have someone with the same level of experience and skill to take over if needed.
