Bridal Trials

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY HAIR TRIAL?

Approximately two to three months prior to your wedding date. 

WHAT USUALLY HAPPENS AT THE TRIAL?

We will have a consultation and discuss your favourite styles and how we can customize them to your hair type. I allow 1.5 - 2 hours for this appointment so we can take our time and make the style as perfect as you would like it. I take reference photos and/or videos of the style and will write notes that include what you like or don't like. These are so on the wedding day you can relax and enjoy your special day. 

HOW DO I PREPARE MY HAIR? 

Washing your hair the night before your trial is recommended so it is clean and dry for your appointment.

Do not apply any coconut oil, leave in conditioners, etc. Do not flat iron your hair. 

If you have curly or frizzy hair, I recommend blow drying your hair straight (unless you want me to work with your natural curls, then leave natural),

I recommend wearing a white or light colored shirt and some makeup to your trial as to closely reflect the colors and look that you will have on your wedding day. 

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING? 

It is good to bring 3 - 5 of your favourite hairstyle images, photos of your wedding dress, your veil, hair extensions and/or accessories. 

CAN I BRING SOMEONE TO WATCH? 

Yes, you may bring one guest to come and give you feedback. 

WHAT IF I'M NOT 100% SURE ABOUT MY HAIRSTYLE AFTER THE FIRST TRIAL? 

Often if brides have done their bridal trial too far in advance, they will have a second trial. And simply, brides like to have options. If you are unsure, please let me know and we can arrange a second trial date. There is no change in the trial pricing for a second trial.

Other Hair Services

DO YOU OFFER TOUCH UP OR SECOND LOOK FOR RECEPTION? 

Yes, I do. If you are interested please make a note in the enquiry form and I will add it in to the quote. 

DO YOU TAKE FORMAL OR SPECIAL OCCASION HAIR BOOKINGS? 

Yes, I do. 

CAN YOU CUT MY HAIR TO SUIT THE UPSTYLE? 

During the appointment, I can trim the front of the hair to shape the face if the style requires, but I do not offer a full haircutting service.

It depends on the location.

On the Wedding Day

HOW LONG DO YOU NORMALLY TAKE PER PERSON? 

On the wedding day I allow about 1 hour per person, and 1.5 hours for the bride. This timeframe can vary based on the chosen styles of the bridal party. 

DO YOU WORK WITH AN ASSISTANT? 

I work on my own most of the time. I only bring an assistant if the client requests to get everyone ready faster. In this case the client pays an additional assistant fee. 

HOW DO I PREPARE MY HAIR FOR YOU ON THE WEDDING DAY? 

Please all have clean, dry, and brushed hair. Washing the hair the night before is recommended.

If you find that usually your hair does not hold a curl well, you can put a small amount of curling mousse starting from about your ears to the ends of your hair when you wash your hair the day before.

 Do not apply any coconut oil, leave in conditioners, etc. Do not flat iron your hair. 

Anyone with curly or frizzy hair is recommended to blow dry their hair straight (unless they want me to work with their natural curls, then leave natural), otherwise it will cause delays in the hair styling process.

Hair Extensions

WHAT EXTENSIONS DO YOU RECOMMEND? 

I recommend Luxy Hair as well as Bellami Hair. 

I have a referral link for Luxy Hair that is for $10 off: https://prz.io/xyjoqyI0

DO YOU DO HAIR EXTENSIONS? 

I don't provide permanent hair extension services. I recommend using only clip in hair extensions for your wedding hair. If you are unsure whether you need extensions, please send me pictures of your hair in daylight, and what hairstyle you would like to achieve. Then, I can let you know if you will need hair extensions.

Changes to your Booking

SORRY, NUMBERS HAVE CHANGED. CAN I REMOVE PEOPLE FROM MY BOOKING? 

Once the job is booked, there is a $50 cancellation fee for each cancelled service.

This is stated in the contract agreement that you have signed. 

CAN I ADD EXTRA HAIR SERVICES ONTO THE QUOTE AT A LATER DATE? 

Yes, you may add on extra services up to 7 days before the wedding date, if I am available.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY WEDDING TIMING CHANGES, CAN YOU ACCOMODATE? 

Yes, of course. Just let me know what time you would like to be ready by and I will update the timeframe. If the timing changes so that everyone needs to be ready earlier than originally planned, I may need to bring an assistant if there was not one previously booked.
