HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Bridal hair and makeup can take up to two hours depending on the desired look. Bridesmaids/mother of the bride makeup usually takes 30-45 minutes.
I take a small non-refundable deposit (£50 for makeup or £75 for hair and makeup) that secures your wedding date (deposits are due within 7 days once booking form has been issued)
PLEASE NOTE - YOUR BOOKING IS NOT SECURE UNTIL I HAVE RECEIVED YOUR INITIAL DEPOSIT
At the trial I take 50% of the balance if you are happy with the trial and the remaining balance is due two weeks before the wedding date.
I take payments by cash or bank transfer only.
The trial is normally 1-4 months before the wedding date, trials are usually carried out at my home, (I live in Birmingham. B30 ) as I try and book in full days of trials as wedding season is in full swing, another venue can be arranged including travel costs if needed. I tend to do the trials on a Monday , Tuesday or Thursdays but another day could be arranged if needed.
FRIDAYS, SATURDAYS OR SUNDAYS CANNOT ALWAYS BE GUARANTEED AS THIS IS USUALLY WHEN MOST WEDDINGS ARE TAKING PLACE.
If you have booked hair and makeup both trials will be carried out on the same day.
Please bring along any inspiration images you have to help show me what you have in mind. For hair trials please wash your hair the night before so that it is easier to style and bring along any headpieces or a veil you plan to wear.
Any other members of the bridal party requiring a trial will come at an additional cost.
If for any reason you do not want to book after your bridal trial then your deposit covers your trial- any additional trials will need to be paid for .
