We recommend trials are carried out two to three months before the wedding. The purpose of your hair trial is to ensure the style you have chosen will compliment both your face shape and your dress on your wedding day. We must ensure that your hair is suitable for the chosen style. We need to remind you that a trial is all about finding what works for you, it is not the final version of what you can expect on the day... your trial is basically a rough sketch; on the day itself you can expect a work of art! For your trial we ask that you wash your hair thoroughly the night before, it is best if you shampoo twice and then add a small amount of conditioner to the ends only. Use a blow dryer to smooth out your hair but do not straighten it. We would also ask that you bring any hair extensions, hair adornments and your veil that you will be using on the day of. We always suggest wearing a button down that is solid in color like that of your dress.
We encourage you to do a trial run to meet with your artist prior to the wedding to discuss personal vision and expectations. We provide you with peace of mind and a detailed makeup-hair schedule 3-4 weeks prior to your wedding. Each makeup artist and hair stylist is committed to using the up most sanitary practices by utilizing alcohol, brush cleaner for brushes, disinfectants, disposable wands and hand sanitizer in-between each client. Each artist also carries a variety of products to accommodate your needs. They carry a variety of long wearing pro products for oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, vegan, oil free, non comedogenic that will not clog pores.
Nothing, just sit back, relax, drink some bubbly and we will take you from damsel in distress to Cinderella in no time! A few weeks prior to your BIG day, we will send you a schedule to keep everyone on track and avoid any delays. We like to arrive 45 mins before go time , allows to get set up, move furniture around if need be (don't worry, we will leave the space how we found it). This will ensure we start right on time and that you are in your dress and ready for first look right on time. Everyone should arrive with hair washed and fully dried from the previous night, Please wear a button down, zip-up or a robe which can be easily removed after styling. We promise to go the extra mile on the day of to ensure you enjoy the preparations and are delighted with the result. Our mission is not only to create your perfect look, but also make your wedding morning/afternoon a fun, relaxing and enjoyable experience. We will be there till you and your party are in your dresses; go around and add a final layer of hairspray , and powder your faces one last time.
Popular dates are usually booked up well in advance so please book early to avoid disappointment.
