About wedding hair, makeup & beauty

Look and feel your best on your wedding day with the expertise of Nelson and Tasman's talented hair, makeup and beauty artists.

How far in advance should I book hair, makeup and beauty services?

It's best to secure hair and makeup services 6-9 months before your wedding date. Popular artists and salons can book out quickly, especially during peak wedding season.

Should I have a trial run before the wedding day?

Yes, a trial is highly recommended. It allows you to test different looks, ensure you're happy with the results, and make any necessary adjustments. Schedule your trial 2-3 months before the wedding.

How long does bridal hair and makeup typically take?

You should allow about 60-90 minutes for bridal makeup and 60-90 minutes for hair. For bridesmaids, allocate 45-60 minutes each for both hair and makeup. Your artist can provide a more accurate timeline based on your specific needs.

Will my makeup last all day?

Professional makeup artists use long-wearing, photography-friendly products that last throughout your wedding day. They can also provide touch-up tips and may offer touch-up kits for purchase.

Can hair/makeup/nail artists come to my venue on the wedding day?

Many hair and makeup artists offer on-location services. Confirm this before booking and discuss any travel fees that may apply.

What if I have sensitive skin or allergies?

During your consultation, inform your makeup artist about any skin sensitivities or allergies. Many artists can accommodate special requirements and use hypoallergenic products if needed.
How do I choose a hair and makeup style that suits my wedding theme?
Browse bridal magazines and websites for inspiration. Consider your dress style, wedding theme, and personal preferences. Your artist can offer suggestions based on your face shape, skin tone, and hair type to ensure a look that complements you perfectly.
