When Should I Book My Trial?
I usually recommend a trial 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding date. However, should you wish one sooner I am more than happy to do this.
Where Can I Have My Trial ?
Trials are usually held at my home near Bicester/Buckingham, I can travel to you for the trial but a small surcharge dependent on postcode will be added to the trial cost.
Do I Need To Prepare For My Trial?
A few ideas are very helpful, Please bring photos/mood board of things/ideas you like and I can do a full consultation with these in mind before I begin. I will ask plenty of questions about likes/dislikes and tailor what I do to you. We can also amend things as we go !
It is also a good idea to wear light colours to resemble your dress.
How Should I Prep My Hair?
If you could wash and dry your hair the day before or the day of your appointment. It’s up to you as I know some brides want clean fresh hair on the day, I fully prep hair and use amazing products so don’t worry about it being too clean !
Should I Come With A Clean Face Or Make Up On For My Makeup Trial?
Please either have a clean face or wear your usual makeup to give me an idea of your makeup boundaries. It’s totally up to you! I will remove any make up prior and prep your skin.
What Do I Need To Bring With Me To My Trial ?
Please have ready any hair accessories that you plan on wearing for your wedding day. If you are yet to choose I can give advice and I do have some hair accessories and a veil we can try for effect. If you have a specific hair product or makeup product that you want to use for your wedding, for example, a specific blush or lipstick, please have those ready as well. If you have allergies to certain makeup brands or makeup ingredients, please me know in advance.
Can I Try Different Styles ?
I am more than happy to make amendments after your first style and I can do a maximum of 3 hair styles before hair becomes overstyled. Make up can be adjusted slightly too. For a trial exceeding 3 hours, extra time charges will apply. (£20 per 30 minutes)
How Will You Recreate My Look Exactly The Same On The Day ?
I will take photos on your trial of different angles and I also fill out a face chart to record exact make up items used.
How Long Will My Trial Take?
Each service (makeup or hair) takes about 1 hour. Hair and Makeup trials take about 2-2 1/2 hours. Please let me know if you have a special circumstance, such as very long and thick hair so that I add time to your trial. As mentioned above after 3 hours a charge is added per 30 minutes.
How Can I Pay?
A booking fee of £100 is due at time of booking to secure your date in my diary. You will receive a Confirmation Of Booking on receipt of the deposit for your records the deposit is then deducted off your wedding day total. The Trial is payable before or at the trial. The wedding day total is Invoiced and due by 2 weeks prior to the wedding date.
