Lindsey Robinson came to me as a referral from her awesome and talented sister, photographer Jennifer Maxwell of A Creative Pear Photography in Atlanta, and I was so thankful :) I absolutely love working with Jenn and if she is sending her sister to me to do her hair and makeup for her wedding, I know it is a compliment considering she photographs so many makeup and hair artist's work on a regular basis :) Thank you Jenn!! You're great!!
So from the very beginning I always get details about you as the bride, the style of your wedding, colors being used in the wedding, and any concerns you have about getting your hair and makeup done. I spend time answering any questions as they come about. I always try to understand exactly what you are wanting for your wedding day look. Photos help of course, so sending those over to me are preferred in order to help you in the best and most efficient way possible. Pinterest is great for this!!
If you don't really know where to begin, and you are the type of person who doesn't wear makeup regularly, then that is perfectly normal, and truthfully a lot of my brides are like you in that way! So don't worry! I also love to help guide you too based on your personality, style of your wedding, and any other details you can provide :)
Lindsey, this lovely bride, was super sweet to work with, and having Jenn and Lindsey's mom at the consultation too was just a fun time all around! During the consultation we tried a hairstyle that Lindsey showed me a photo of, and it, as well as her makeup choice, was beautiful on her :)
Now let's talk about changing our minds. We are human beings, we change our minds.. And that is ok!! Although sometimes, brides, you may think you want a certain hairstyle, you may end up changing your mind after the consultation, and you should not feel bad at all about it :) The consultation is a great way to weed out the makeup and hairstyles that you "think" you may want, and then move on to what you really want after having tried out and lived in that hair or makeup style for the rest of the day after your consultation :)
During my initial check-in after the consultation, Lindsey was wanting to make a few changes to the makeup and hair styles in order to feel more like herself, and brides, once again, this is totally good with me! I want you to have opinions about your makeup and hairstyles! I want you to step away from the consultation saying, wow I look amazing, however maybe what I thought I wanted is not exactly what I actually want. Or, maybe we will nail the look you are going for, and you were on the right track all along with your thoughts about your wedding day look. Either way, I want to help you get to the makeup and hair look in the most efficient way possible, and sometimes that includes making revisions after the consultation.
So don't worry, I will always work with you no matter how many changes you need to make :) After all, this is kind of an important day in your life ;)
Check Lindsey out in her final look, with her final hairstyle being literally decided on right before I did her hair on her wedding day. And all turned out fabulous!! She was so happy and felt completely herself in her look, which is the most important part of it all :)
So brides, all in all, don't be afraid to speak up at any point during the process! We want you to get exactly what you are going for in order for you to feel insanely beautiful on your special day :)
