Mia's Wedding H&M Trial!

Who: Mia
What: Wedding Hair and Makeup Trial
Where: San Jose Home Studio

There are so many things about this trial that I absolutely LOVED!!! 
Let me introduce you to Mia and her "entourage" for the day... enjoying the occasion with some champagne and cheery toasts :) I've never had a bride bring in some bubbly for a trial, but seeing this unfold in my studio totally made sense! (And yes, Mia asked for permission before running back to her car to bring it in)

That, along with some great conversations about teaching (go teachers!), Popscene in SF, wrist tattoos, and other quirky but fun moments, made for a super awesome trial.

Before and After #1

Before and After #2

We went for a bold eye and natural/nude lips. What really helped was the photos Mia had e-mailed prior to the trial. Based on the photos and the consult prior to the makeup application, it made for an easy transition into her bridal makeup look. When a client isn't afraid of makeup, that helps a lot too! :)


Okay, I'll be super honest. Out of all the updos I've done, this is probably my favorite :) Mia had also e-mailed photos of hair looks she liked prior to the trial. Along with bringing Baby's Breath to the trial, she would have a flower comb to put into her hair on the wedding day.  I had a couple flower pins I used as substitutes until then. This is what we came up with!

Before and After

So fun!

Thanks for coming in Mia! Looking forward to working with you on your wedding day :) 

Look at! The bride with her MOH, Nicole. Picture perfect!

But wait...
 So much fun ladies :)
See you soon!
