Once you decide that you'd like me as your wedding day stylist (good choice!) then the next step is to book a trial. A £50 deposit is required at this point and that secures both your trial and your wedding day...it will be deducted from your final balance.
Please feel free to email me any questions..I'm happy to answer any worries (emails are best so I can keep a record of everything)
Q & A's
Where will my trial be held?
Your trial will be held in my garden studio in Saltdean, Brighton. When you arrive I'll let you in through the side gate. It's very relaxing and away from it all and any interruptions...Oh apart from the pets coming to visit! Feel free to bring someone along if you want to.
If you prefer, I'm happy to come to you for your trial . Travel expenses will apply.
When should I have my trial?
I recommend having your trial approximately 3 months before your wedding day. Trials are held on Fridays and Saturdays...get in quick if you need a Saturday date..they go fast!
What do I need to bring?
Bring along any hair accessories that you have, don't worry if you haven't decided on anything yet.. I can advise you on what would work with your hairstyle. Other than that bring yourself with clean, dry hair and a clean face
What will happen at my trial?
When you arrive, I'll ask all about your plans...what your dress looks like, the colour of your flowers, your venue and the vibe of your wedding. I'll start to get an overall picture of your day. Then I'll ask to see any hair and make-up pics that you like. If you really don't know just start collecting pics of anything that catches your eye..even if you're not sure if it will suit you or if your hair is long enough. These pics are the basis of creating your bespoke look. I'll then ask questions about how much make-up you're used to, and how much you wear on a night out...this gives me an idea of how much make-up you will be comfortable with.
I'll ask how well your hair holds with a curl so that I know how much product to use...some styles need a lot to last the day but I'll discuss all of this with you first.
When I'm finished, I'll make sure you're happy, take photos and make notes and ask you to wear it for the day and see how it all holds up. I'll then amend my notes with any changes.
Your trial will take up to 3 hours so bring snacks!!
Can my bridesmaids/Mum have a trial too?
I really prefer to do just you on your trial...it's our time to get to know each other and I like to concentrate on getting everything right for you.
But I do understand sometimes that Mum's are nervous too and want to know what their hair and make-up will look like, so am more than happy to accommodate them.
If you do want your whole bride tribe to have a trial, keep in mind how much time it will take and that it might eat into our time together...it's your day though and am happy to do whatever you wish.
What happens after my trial?
I will email you within a week to check how everything was and any changes that you'd like to make. I'll confirm the date and time of your wedding and what time you will need to be ready on your day. I'll then send you a conformation with a time plan and a final balance to pay
