Before I started doing makeup, I thought "We all do our own makeup every day, what difference does it really make to have a professional do it?" Same goes with hair. What difference does it make if I already know how to do my own hair? After doing hair and makeup for my clients for so many years, I can tell you it makes a HUGE difference to hire a professional. Every photographer I know will attest to that. Here are a few of the many reasons why you should hire a professional hair stylist and makeup artist for your wedding:
A hairstylist will make your hairstyle look good from EVERY angle the camera captures. It's easy to do your own hair and make it look good from the front or the back, but there is no telling what angles the photographer will capture. A professional will know how to make your hairstyle look balanced, full and flattering from the front, back, sides, top, whatever angle the camera captures.
A hairstylist and makeup artist uses the right products and techniques to make your hair and makeup last ALL day. It's one thing to look great when you leave your house that morning, it's another thing to still look great when you make your grand exit that night. Professional makeup, hair tools and experience will all help you to look picture perfect all day long.
