Trial & Preparation Questions:
1) When should I schedule the trial?
This is entirely up to you, most of my brides schedule a couple months before the wedding. I would recommend scheduling your trial when you figure out your wedding date.
2) What should I bring to the trial?
Some inspiration photos of what you would like your hair and makeup to look like, any photos of your wedding dress if you have it and any hair accessories that you may be wearing on your wedding day.
3) How do I secure my date?
A 50% deposit will secure your date. This can happen before, at or after the trial. I am unable to hold any dates unless there is a deposit securing the date.
4) How long does everything take?
A trial can take around 2.5-3 hours for hair and makeup. This way we can discuss your look and make any changes that are necessary. On the day of the wedding, bridal hair and makeup take around 2 hours, and bridesmaids take approximately 45 minutes per service. I do not work with an assistant, but am happy to work alongside other hair and makeup artists if there are large parties.
Day of Wedding
1) Can I shower the day of the wedding?
I would recommend washing your hair the night before. Your hair must be completely dry from root to tip to ensure your hairstyle stays in place for the full day.
2) What should I tell my bridesmaids to bring?
Each bridesmaid should bring a photo of the hairstyle and makup they would like to have for the day. Bringing their own lipstick color to use may be helpful so they could touchup throughout the day, but this is not a requirement.
3) How should I prepare the room?
It is best to work in natural lighting with low back chairs, near an outlet.
4) What should I wear?
To minimize hair frizziness and makeup smudging, it is recommended to wear a button down shirt or a shirt that could be taken off with ease.
