Common Questions

Answers to commonly asked questions about Event Hair and Makeup from the professionals that are using Bidvine.

What is a hair and makeup artist?

A hair and makeup artist is a professional who works in the beauty industry, preparing their clients for special occasions, weddings, or even theatre, film, and television. If you have a special event or wedding coming up a hair and makeup artist can help you transform your look by styling your hair and working on your makeup. Hair and makeup artists will design your hair and makeup in line with your style aims, for example, you might want a classic bridal look, or something bohemian or vintage. It can often be difficult to figure out exactly what you‚ are going for, so a hair and makeup artist will ask you questions to help establish what is going to suit you best. Hair and makeup artists consider your appearance and what styles will be most suitable, for example, with your skin tone, hair colour, face shape, and so on. If you are hiring a hair and makeup artist for a wedding, they can work closely with wedding planners to make sure that yours and your bridesmaids‚ hair and makeup fits in perfectly with the style of your wedding. A great hair and makeup artist will also offer a touch-up service during the day, to keep you looking your best.

What are cosmetologists?

Some professionals focus on either makeup or hair, but some experts, known as cosmetologists, work on both hair and makeup. They may even help you with treatments such as nail care and facials. You can think of them as a kind of beauty one-stop-shop.

Is it better to do hair or makeup first?

Whether to do your hair or makeup first depends on your schedule and exactly what you are having done. Ideally, you will have your hair done first because if you are using heated appliances like rollers or straighteners, this may make you perspire. Also, certain spray hair products can also affect your makeup, so if you can, it is better to get your hair done first. Also, if you have a fringe or any flyaway bits of hair, you don't want these affecting your beautifully finished makeup. Once your hair is styled and finished, you need to make sure you are really careful with your makeup application so that you don't ruin your hair. This is where a professional hair and makeup artist will really come into their own, as they have plenty of experience in making sure everything is done perfectly. However, although it is usually preferable, it is not a hard and fast rule that makeup needs to come after hair! Sometimes, depending on the makeup, it might be easier for your hair and makeup artist to put your makeup on whilst your hair is up in rollers and away from your face. You can also use heat and sweat resistant makeup products such as waterproof eyeliner or transfer-resistant foundation. Your hair and makeup artist will be able to make a judgment based on what you are having done. If you have separate hair and makeup artists, you want to make sure that they communicate effectively to decide which will be done first.

How long does it take to get your hair and makeup done?

The length of time taken to get your hair and makeup done will depend on a range of different factors. On average, hair styling will take approximately 45 to 90 minutes, though if you are looking for intricate bridal hair styling this can take often longer. Makeup can take from 45 minutes to an hour, again allowing more time for bridal makeup. To get a clear idea of the timeline, consider how much communication you have had with your hair and makeup artist before the day of your wedding or event. If you have everything perfectly planned and all of the decisions have been made, this will reduce the time needed to get your hair and makeup done. The more planning that has gone into hair and makeup, the quicker it will be on the day. Sometimes, if you have a big and important event such as a wedding, you may have a trial carried out before the actual day. Generally, the trial will take slightly longer than when you have your makeup done on the actual wedding itself. For hair, the intricacy of the style and the length of hair will need factoring into the length of time needed for styling. For weddings, the bride and bridesmaids will need their hair and makeup styling. If there is a large bridal group, you should ask your hair and makeup artist to bring an assistant so that the overall styling session takes less time.
