One of the vendors that you could use a little bit of help with is your hair stylist. You definitely want to guard against having a bad hair day. And you want your hair style to beautifully complement you on your big day. This means you are going to need to do quite a bit of research in the Raleigh area. You also will be well armed on your search if you take this guide with you on each and every interview that you conduct.
So, you are probably wondering, what is the best way to come up with some hair stylists. There are a few actually. One way is to start asking your family, friends and coworkers if they presently work with a hair stylist or if they have ever had to hire a hair stylist that they would recommend. This can be a really great resource because obviously these are people that you trust and you really won't have to track down much in the way of references about anyone they give you. Another source is the world wide web. This can also be a very powerful resource in terms of coming up with candidates. Do a Google search for “hair stylists in the Raleigh area.” The unfortunate part about this kind of search is the number of results that you will have returned. But it is still very much worthwhile to at least check out the first 50 results. You can check out their website and get a vibe as to which candidates are professional and of a high quality. You can also ask your wedding vendors about any stylists they could recommend. These three sources should give you a number of candidates that you will want to check out.
So, your next move is to setup meetings with each candidate so that you can properly interview them about what they might be able to provide. At each meeting, find out about the candidates background and how many weddings they have worked. Ask for references and make sure that you check each one, they could be a very valuable source of information. Take a look at their portfolio and look for versatility, this is extremely important. Find out if they are trained specifically in bridal hair.
What will be the total cost for their services? Do they recommend doing a trial run? This can be huge because it will help you to determine what they can do for you and if you like the way that they operate. When you find the candidate that you really like, ask them to draw up a contract and make sure that you go over it with a fine toothed comb. If you see any problems, sit down the stylist and make sure these are taken care of before you sign on the dotted line.
