It is entirely up to you, but I recommend booking your trial at least 8weeks before, as you could change your mind on what hairstyle or make up you want and may need to book another trial. Also try and fit it in with a dress fitting so you can see it all together.
What days are available for my trial?
The days that are currently available for your trial are Tuesday mornings, Wednesday day/night, Friday day time and Saturdays afternoons some mornings but I’m usually full with a wedding on a Saturday morning.
How long will the trial last?
The hair trial is approximately 1.5 hour, half an hour is for the consultation and the other hour is where you get one hair style to try you can however have an extra hour which is an extra £15 if you would like to try 2 hair styles but please let me no as I have to book the time out, which will still need paying for if you change your mind. if your wanting to book another trial on a separate day then the charge is £40.
Make up trial usually lasts around the same time 2 hours, as this is a very personal thing I would like to have enough time to get it right. For hair and make up usually around 3 1/2 hours.
How should I prepare my hair for my trial /on the day?Please wash you hair the night of your trial/wedding day, just make sure its clean for me on the day and dry!! I will prep your hair with products before I start so it’s easier for me to work with.
How should I prepare myself for my make up trial?
Please make sure your skin is make up free, with no products on as I will be prepping your skin, unless discussed otherwise. No mascara on, especially the wedding morning as we work on a time scale, and great option is to wear a white top on your trial.
How far do you travel?
Please let me no where your wanting your hair or make up done the morning of your wedding , as this will affect your booking , I only travel around an hour or slightly over from la20rs. Lancashire, lake district and surrounding areas.
What time will you arrive at the venue?
This will vary on the time of your ceremony and how big the party is and what style your bridesmaids are having as some hair up dos take longer than others, at the most I give myself 1 hour per style, I can provide an extra early start (around 6-7) or if you do not wish for this then a second stylist may be required. Confirmation of the time will be discussed on your trial day. Please note I will bring someone if the wedding requires me to set off before 5am this may involve their petrol cost.
Do I need a deposit to secure my wedding date?
Yes the deposit is to cover the cost of your trial which is non refundable unless I cancel, this will secure your date up until the trial.
Due to crovid-19 deposit will be refundable if you cannot secure a new date with me. If the wedding date is still postponed but I’m able to work on that day as I colour and cut hair then it still isn’t refundable as I have to book out that day for it.
After the trial a 50% deposit from the day amount is taken (this is non refundable if you cancel) , this will ensure your date is still secure. You will have 7 days to pay this, if we do not hear anything from you after 7 days i will assume your not happy and your date will be released.
The next payment will be the other 50% of the days payments plus any petrol fees, we require all payments to be paid before 72 hours of the wedding is it done in this order no earlier or later.
The petrol cost is charged at 50p per mile this is after a 40mile round trip, so 20miles there and 20miles back. This is estimated from my home at La2ors, if an additional stylist is needed it may involve a sub charge to cover their petrol fees.
Are there any other charges?
Parking charges must be paid, I will ask on the day if that is the case. If I get a parking ticket and this is somewhere that has been suggested to me from yourself or the bridal party this must also be paid.
Any other questions don’t hesitate to contact me. Most of this will be discussed on your trial day.
