FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How long do you need on the morning to do everyones hair and makeup?


This depends on the stylist however after your trial we would supply a timetable for you and your bridal party to confirm what time everyone will be ready. We would also make sure everyone is ready atleast 1 hour before you leave or before your ceremony (if on site) so there is no rushing if anyone is running behind. It also ensures you can get into your dresses, have some photos and drink some Champagne :)




Do you send over a timetable for us?


Yes we will send this after your trial and if you aren't having a trial then we will make sure this is given to you in plenty of time before your big day.




When should we wash our hair? (Night before of day of?)


For styled hair I always recommend for everyone to wash their hair the night before your trial or wedding day (unless specifed otherwise) If you are having a blow dry then we recommend to wash your hair before.




How long will the trial last?


The trial time completely depends on the stylist and also what look you are going for and how intricate it is. We don't like to put a time on this as it is difficult to say how long it will take to achieve your desired look. However if you are having either a bridal hair or makeup trial it would take on average 1-2 hours and if you are having a bridal hair and makeup trial it could last anywhere between 1 1/2- 3 1/2 hours.




What products do you have in your kit? (If you have any allergies to anything then let them know in advance)


Depending on which stylist you choose they will have their favourite products in their kit. Please see on each individual stylists page their fav products. Knowing any alleriges you or your bridal party have in advance would be much appreciated. Also this applies to if you only want vegan products used.




Where does the trial take place?


Some stylists have their own studios where the trials can take place. If you would prefer the stylist to come to you this is possible but can be an extra charge. I will state this on the enquiry form at the time of booking




How long before my wedding should I have a trial?


I recommend having a trial 2-3 months before your wedding day. However you can book this in whenever you like. If you would like this to be a weekend I would say to book it in advance as weekends fill up very quickly.
