Need tips for working with a professional bridal hair and makeup stylist, but don’t know where to begin?

I recently connected with Nicole Morgan, owner of Los Angeles’ Nikky Styles Hair and Makeup, who was more than happy to share some of her own top suggestions.

Check out the following seven tips for working with a professional bridal hair and makeup stylist, and get ready to look your best in no time!

1. Plan Ahead

First and foremost, one of Nicole’s key tips for working with a professional bridal hair and makeup stylist is to start searching for the right person at least six months ahead of your wedding day.

Doing this, she says, will give you time to consider your top choices and schedule trial runs before the stylists you’re interested in become booked for your date.2

Starting your search early will also help ensure that you feel confident and comfortable with the person you ultimately choose.

2. Do a Trial Run

As mentioned above, doing a trial run is a great way to compare different stylists, and it can also help you perfect your bridal look far in advance.2

Have a particular hair style or makeup look you’ve fallen in love with on Pinterest?

What looks good on another person might actually look entirely different on you, so take advantage of the opportunity to test things out well ahead of your wedding day.

Don't forget to bring along your headpiece and jewelry, and if possible, try to also wear a shade that matches your gown.

3. Be Flexible

While you of course want to go into a styling session with some ideas about what you do and don’t like, another of Nicole’s helpful tips is to be flexible and open to your stylist’s suggestions.

He or she is a professional, after all, and may be able to share additional insights you’ve never before considered.

Keep an open mind, and take full advantage of your stylist’s expertise!
