You will need transportation that is not only reliable, but is also big enough to carry all of your supplies. A minivan is perfect for this or a car with a large trunk. You will be doing a lot of travelling so the car must be reliable, you cannot take the chance of letting a bride down, and losing a customer and money. But, you also need to make sure you have enough room to fit everything you’ll need easily.
Doing hair at home is just like doing it in the salon, except that you are mobile. That means you need to be sure you have everything on hand just as you would in a salon. That includes towels, hair clips, hair dryers, curling iron and flat iron, curlers, brushes, combs, and so on. You never know what you are going to need and it would be unprofessional and perhaps ruin the bride’s day if you were missing something important to finish her hair.
Not only do you need the equipment, but you will also need products. That means you will need to make sure you have enough shampoo, hair rinse, gels, and hairsprays. But you’ll also want to be sure you have the right products for coloring hair and doing perms. Even if this is a bride’s wedding day, that doesn’t mean she may not need her hair color retouched or a whole new color. It is her day, so you will need to have everything on hand that she could possibly desire.
Since most brides like their makeup done also, you need to make sure you have all kinds of beauty products on hand. When it comes to makeup, you are going to need palettes for all skin types, skin tones, and preferences. You want to be that your makeup choices are large enough to prepare a face into a soft look, a dramatic look, or whatever the bride needs for that day.
Bridal hair usually has some accessories in it. Not all brides wear a veil and even some that do, need something special added to the hair. That means you want to have enough bridal pins and combs to keep the hair in place. Since you may not know exactly everything you’ll need, have a large selection of colors and styles in accessories, you never know if she’ll want a bit of fake baby’s breath in her hair or not, so have it on hand just in case.
A mobile bridal hair stylist can be a lifesaver for the bride-to-be and that is why many women are looking for mobile hairdressers to help them on their special day. Building up a client base can be done by advertising, but word of mouth will always work best. If you want to be a mobile bridal hairdresser, make sure you are prepared for any emergency so that you can save the day for any bride that needs it.
