How it works and what to expect.
Once you have secured your wedding date with me, we can will arrange a trial for you.
It is important to have a trial as it allows us to meet face to face; I can see your style, your personality and help you to create a look that is perfect for you!
It's good to try out a style or two before the real thing to make sure that what you have in mind suits you, your hair type, colouring etc and that you still like the look when you see it all together. It also helps keep things running nice and smoothly during the morning of your wedding day as we can finalise timings; I will already know what I am doing when I arrive and will have already practised your look.
I have a beautiful salon room set up for you to visit when it time for your trial appointment, which is located on the outskirts of Gravesend in my home.... I have a few little extras for you here too including non-dairy milk for tea/coffee, decaf options and herbal options.
Not long ago I completely refreshed the salon room for you.It is now the perfect space for your trial hair and makeup appointment; quiet and peaceful with a conscious balance between earthy and luxury.
There is a selection of hair jewellery for you to try out, in case you don't know what you want or what will suit your chosen style. This will give you a chance to get an idea of what will suit your finished look and some inspiration to do some shopping of your own.
I also have two veils for you to try out - a short one and an elbow length one. If you don't want to bring your actual veil to try, or haven't found one yet, this will give you a great idea of what your final look will be like.
After we have finalised your look I will make notes of all the products used and take photos so that I can replicate your look exactly on the day. I also double check numbers, timings and the location you'd like me to come to.
Up to 14 days after you trial is when your 50% non-refundable booking fee is due. This keeps your date locked in and allows you to see my work in person and meet me before you fully commit. I will email you all the info you need to do this at your trial.
To prepare for you trial I recommend gathering a selection of ideas that you like, as well as having a photo of your dress to hand so that I can guide you on what will suit, if you would like me to.
For your hair trial: clean, product free hair is best, which is completely dry and ideally has been washed the evening before to it is not too fresh.
For your makeup trial: clean skin and no mascara is best please, though I am happy if you'd like to come with your makeup on to show me what you normally do.
