Hair and makeup dilemma
I booked my hair and makeup ages ago - with a reputable company who won a regional award a couple of years ago. They had great reviews on facebook but are fairly expensive,
i had my trial recently and it was AWFUL! The girl was also rude and unprofessional. I spoke to the manager and was given big apology, the offer of a second trial (for free) with someone else, and that 'someone else' doing my hair and makeup at the wedding instead. The need for a second trial is a pain as it's a long way away from where I'm currently living but I wouldn't want to risk no trial at all.
Now, in the past year I stumbled upon another hair/makeup artist who is AMAZING - a real makeup genius! She works on her own and through word of mouth and is really cheap. I am now considering hiring her instead as I know she's awesome. HOWEVER, she would have to travel a couple of hours to get to my venue and I'd worry that she might be late ... she almost forgot my appointment when I met with her and I'm not sure how reliable she is. The other company are based much nearer the venue and would send two people, although it would cost twice as much.
So who should I go with...
