We Tried DIY Vs. Professionally Styled Evening Looks, And Here's How They Both Turned Out

"This took time. This took an entire episode of Law & Order."

Sure, it's fun to get professional hair, makeup, and styling...if you've got lots of extra cash to do it. But is it actually that much more worth it than doing it yourself? We decided to have one person get professional styling, and one person style themselves, to see if we could really tell the difference:

First up was wardrobe: Nina's stylist, Nadia, brought in a bunch of great options for the tune of $300.


This took about an hour, and while Nina definitely felt a little uncomfortable having to try some new silhouettes, she ended up with something very cute (WHICH WE'LL SHOW YA LATER!).


Finally, it was time for makeup! Nina had a professional Blushington makeup artist give her a smoky-eye evening look for about $55. It took about an hour, and it was pretty easy breezy.


So, how did their final looks turn out?
