Hair & Makeup Artist Jo Twidale answers the question: How long do you spend preparing a bride for her wedding?
“I guess I’m quite dogmatic, in that I like to give the bride more time than less. We work really closely with photographers, and just listening to them, they’ve said their pet-hate is an artist running late, because that then cuts into their time of photographing the bride prior to the wedding. So, we say about an hour and forty-five minutes per person for hair and makeup. But in saying that, with Twidale, you have two or three artists on a wedding. If there’s six people, we would probably allow four-and-a-half hours, even though we’d probably be finished in about three-and-three-quarters.”
