1. The Bride. The Boss
Also answers to the name of Bridezilla, she is your Kryptonite so you must use all magical skills (and a lot of powder) to make her feel like she is the most beautiful woman in the world… or at least in the room.
2. Mother knows best
Over-the-shoulder glaring, readjusting the hair slightly and the just-smelt-rotten-fish look at the lipstick shade you’ve used, a mother’s overprotective instincts never leaves her – least of all today.
3. The bridesmaid with an identity crisis
She might not be wearing the veil and white dress, but in her mind it’s her big day too. Expect hyperactivity, drama and tears, but just remember to make sure the bride is perfected before moving on to the maid of dishonour.
4. The cryer
Tissues. Lots of tissues. If not you’re kind of screwed.
5. The flower girl
Let it go! And, no, we’re not pretending to be Elsa from Frozen [whose hair you’ve been instructed to recreate on the little darling]. Please put down the lipsticks – they are not crayons and I’m working!
6. The *hiccup* auntie
The bubbly is flowing, but there’s always one who sips (downs) an extra glass or two (five). Just make sure you have a strong powder to calm down the rosé cheeks!
7. The black sheep
While the bride is in a land of unicorns and rainbows, the alternative relative is stuck in a land of ghouls and gremlins. Make sure you create the right balance between the bride’s vision and the client’s personality. Oh, and we advise you bring black eyeliner. And lots of it.
8. The freebie friend
Oh, how convenient – one of the bride’s friends just so happens to find the room (out of 75) where the make-up and hair is happening. “Oh you wouldn’t mind touching-up my bronzer would you?”
9. The I’m-still-21 cougar
She’ll disassociate herself from the ‘oldies’ and take selfies with the bridesmaids instead. Warning: you’ll have a fight on your hands trying to tear the candy-floss pink lippy from her.
10. The Glam-ma
She’ll walk in the room like a 1950s Hollywood actress, with skin like silk and stories that’ll make you sorry you interrupted to add her lippy.
