HOW MANY HAIR OR MAKEUP TRIALS WILL I NEED?
It’s rare to need two, one is usually sufficient. But we can do another one if needs be.
WILL THE SAME HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTIST BE WORKING ON ME ON MY WEDDING DAY AS ON MY TRIAL?
100% yes, it is important to us you have consistency.
I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN, WILL YOU FACTOR THIS IN?
Me too! We’ll do a patch test for the make-up to avoid breakouts and I’ve got the best skin-friendly products on the market in my make-up kit.
WOULD YOU ADVISE A TRIAL FOR MY BRIDESMAIDS / MUM / MOTHER-IN-LAW / SISTER?

WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT TERMS?
I take a deposit to secure your date of £100 for weddings and £50 for special occasions (that aren’t weddings!).
You pay your trial balance, minus deposit, no later than day of your trial appointment.
I have a 7 day open window where that time limit is available for that period exclusively for you, after which it becomes open to others due to high demand. To secure your date a 50% booking deposit of the full balance is due within 7 days of your trial. The remaining balance is due no later than 14 days before your event. Any products that you purchase from me are paid for in full when ordering.
WHY DOES BRIDAL HAIR AND MAKEUP COST MORE?
My bridal hair and make-up is a bespoke service. The bride is my priority, on the lead up to the most significant day of your life it’s important for you to feel happy and confident. We will discuss each detail together to make sure everything is perfect. Leading up to the big day we’ll keep in contact, which might be via email, text or phone. Wedding days can be an early start with interruptions and waiting around, but you can rest assured that I’ll be there with you right up until you leave for your ceremony. The price for my bridal service is directly related to my time spent with you and the high level of service I provide.
Over the years after working with over a thousand brides I can guarantee to get you looking perfect and on time for your wedding.
CAN I PAY FOR HAIR OR MAKEUP BY CARD?
Yes, I accept different payment options. You can pay using your credit, debit card or by bank transfer.
