Searching for inspiration pictures of your exact vision is hard enough, but finding the makeup artist and hair stylist to execute that vision can be even harder! We are here to make your search a WHOLE lot easier, babe!
First, let’s start with the basics…finding the inspiration photo that matches YOUR vision and style.
STEP 1: Determine Your Dream Look
Here at Hannah Elisabeth Beauty we specialize in soft, effortless glam & styling. Are you more drawn to a natural look or does full glam speak more to you?
Note: When searching on Pinterest keep in mind that the app groups photos that look completely different into the same categories. For example, when searching “Natural Bridal Makeup” Pinterest gave us the two photos below. Both significantly different, but Pinterest thinks they are both natural bridal makeup. The photo on the left requires minimal makeup and the other is full soft glam.
Be sure to be very descriptive when describing your look. Natural has many different interpretations and both you and your artist will thank you for describing the exact look you are going for!
STEP 2: Choose Your Artist
You will want to choose a hair stylist and makeup artist who specializes in the specific look you are going for. If your vision is very natural and minimal makeup then you will want to find an artist who fits that particular style. If you are extremely drawn to a full glam & contoured look and are obsessed with detailed bridal hair then you will need to find an artist that lives for those same looks.
Helpful Tip: It’s very common to be tempted to choose an artist based on their credibility or talent, but you want to make sure you can at least find more than two photos from their portfolio or page to save for inspo (if you can’t then you may need to keep searching until you have found the right fit for your vision).
The last thing you want or the artist wants is for you to be disappointed with how your look comes out – this is why it is so important to take these steps into consideration when finding your glam squad match!
STEP 3: Determine Your Desires
Now that we have determined how to find the perfect inspiration photo and the artist to match your vision, let’s talk about convenience. Do you want to travel from salon to studio and place to place working with multiple people vs. having someone come to you from one company that is full service, allows you to relax and enjoy the experience of getting glammed up in the comfort of your own home / hotel / bridal suite / office etc.? This is a very important topic to consider. We have found that it saves you time and money while allowing you to enjoy every detail of the day.
STEP 4: Understanding the Importance of Beauty Experts That Also Invest in Themselves
The truth is that you get what you pay for. Our beauty professionals invest into their kits, their education, as well as their businesses that are run professionally and organized. If you find an artist that you are obsessed with then never settle, babe. You want to fall in love with the way you look and quality truly matters.
STEP 5: Enjoy the process! Finding your dream glam squad should be fun and exciting! We are here to offer any tips you may need throughout your search.
We hope this helps you when choosing the right match for you! If your vision is effortless, soft glam & styling then let’s chat 😉
