hair & make-up trial...FAIL!

Since our engagement in May I have known that I wanted to hire someone to do my hair and make-up. After a little bit of searching online I found a hair and make-up artist who was relatively inexpensive and had a great profile. I scheduled my appointment for this past Sunday...and unfortunately things did not go as planned. (I also scheduled our engagement pictures on the same day to try and knock two things out. Bad idea.) I wouldn't say that I had unrealistic expectations, but I did expect to really like the way everything looked. I do not think that I am a picky person, but jeeze this is my wedding day! This is the day where I leave my single life behind and join Keith on this adventure called life. I want to look and feel beautiful.

The first thing that Sarah* (name has been changed to protect her identity) began to work on was my hairstyle. I don't really want to say too much in case KC reads this, but she did a pretty great job curling, straightening, etc. my locks. She did what I asked regarding the style, but it just didn't look like I had imagined it. It was okay, and I didn't complain. Moving on, she started on my make-up. I chose to have the air brush kind because I have heard really great things about it and how it controls oily skin. Now I don't know if it was just my skin or the formula she used, but it looked awful. I had great coverage on my cheeks and forehead, but my nose, chin, and t-zone area were cracking! To make this long story short(er) I scrubbed this off my face, she applied regular make-up, this kind caked my face, and I rescheduled our engagement pictures for another day. The end.

Needless to say I canceled my wedding appointment with her and decided to do my own make-up. However I am still on the hunt for a hair person. Can any of you awesome ladies please recommend someone for me? I don't want anything extravagant done to my hair, I just want it to look pretty. :o)

I know Sarah Rogers used someone who did a great job...she was fast, and she listened if you asked her to tweek something to make it look more like you imagined! The problem is I can't remember the girl's name! :(
