Is this you?
You know you’re good at your job. Great, in fact. You’ve taken all the necessary steps to perfect your styling skills and regularly attend courses to keep your work fresh and inspiring. Maybe you’ve recently decided to go freelance as a Bridal Stylist. Or, perhaps you’ve been in the industry for a while. Either way, the ultimate aim for any professional Stylist is…TO GET BOOKED!
Who can help?
Enter Make Me Bridal, a collective of handpicked bridal hair and makeup artists from around the UK. They have created an amazing service, which helps brides find the right person for their wedding day. In turn, this enables Bridal Stylists to be found by their ideal bride and get booked!
Let’s meet some of the Make Me Bridal Pro Artists and find out more about this fab resource…
Pro MMB Artist: Neecol Corry Weddings
Make Me Bridal allows brides to browse their Artists like a traditional Directory, but also helps the bride to narrow down her search. They do this by having the bride fill out just one enquiry form, which sends out a call to all the Artists in her chosen location.
“Available artists can choose to get in contact with the bride in just one click. Once a bride has seen her options she can book her favourite.” https://makemebridal.co.uk/
Pro MMB Artist: Stephanie Alexandra Makeup Artist
Although their function is to help you get more bookings, Make Me Bridal is not an agency. While they provide you with an integrated booking system to support you with your business, they do not dictate your rates or how you work.
“We don't get involved in the jobs you book, you are in control!” https://makemebridal.co.uk/
Pro MMB Artist: Eleni Liatsou Make up
For us, the best thing about Make Me Bridal is The Bookings Manager. You can use this function for all your brides, not just the ones you’ve booked through them. You can:
Build your quote
Get the distance and mileage from your base address
Set automated review requests to go out two weeks after the wedding date to help build your collection of testimonials
Export your booking details to PDF
Pro MMB Artist: Kelli Waldock Make Up Artist
“When a Bride wants to book you, she will send you a booking request which you can then accept or decline. As soon as you click accept the booking and all details are imported straight into your bookings system. From this stage the booking is in your hands and you will want to liaise directly about the trial, deposit, wedding day timings etc.” https://makemebridal.co.uk/
Pro MMB Artist: Vicky Jiggens Makeup Artist
Make Me Bridal have a fantastic Inspiration board for artists to upload their recent work to. This allows brides to browse and save their favourite images to their very own bridal moodboard.
Pro MMB Artist: Bridal Hair in Hampshire
Every Pro MMB Artist is able to send out a review request to their bride 2 weeks after her wedding. Her feedback can then be shared on the Artist’s profile, serving as a testimonial for other potential bookings.
