As your big day gets closer its a good idea to book in with us for a hair and make up trial. Here you will get an early glimpse of how you will look on the big day.
During the trial you will have the opportunity to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes. We will have a look through the photos of looks that you like and take inspiration from them to try out different hair and makeup looks that will enhance your natural beauty.
With many years of experience working in the bridal industry, we will be able to offer our professional advice and support throughout the trial to leave you feeling assured that your look will be the one that is perfect for you.
After your trial we will provide you with a detailed account of your makeup and hair style along with some pictures and product recommendations for topping up on the day.
Trials take place at our studio and we recommend having it around 3-6 months prior to the big day. They last roughly 1.5/2.5 hours.
Some tips to get the very best from your trial…
💞 Arrive to your trial completely makeup free and have your hair washed from the night before. Don’t use a straighteners on it or put any product in your hair.
💞 Bring photos of hair and makeup styles that you like. Try not have too many though as this can end up confusing you. Pick your top 5 favourites. We will use these as inspiration and adapt them to suit your features.
💞 Bring your veil, hair accessories, and earrings if you have them. Don’t worry if you don’t, we can tweak your hairstyle on the day to allow for them.
💞 Bring a photo of your dress so we can get a sense of the overall style your going for. It helps to see the neckline too so we can advise on hairstyles that will compliment it.
💞 Wear white (or whatever colour your wedding dress is). The colour your wearing will impact how the makeup looks so a plain white/cream t-shirt will allow you see the makeup properly. If you can get one with a similar neckline to your dress even better!!
💞 Wear tan! If you plan to wear tan on your wedding day, please have a similar shade on for your trial. It changes the finished look massively so for you to get a truer indication of the finished look, it’s best to have the tan on for the trial too.
💞 Let us know if theres anything in particular that you know you definately do or don’t want. If you have your heart set on certain details like fresh flowers in your hair, a favourite lipstick etc let us know and we will incorporate them into your look!
💞 Be open to our suggestions. We know what were doing, we’ve done it thousands of times so give us a little bit of freedom, allow us to play around a little and have an open mind!
💞 Be honest! If you don’t like something, let us know! We won’t be offended. Your trial is about trying out different looks, ironing out any kinks and being safe in the knowledge that you will look absolutely amazing on the day!
💞Make plans to go out after your trial, maybe arrange a nice lunch with the girls. Your gona look absolutely gorgeous so go out and show it off!
