BRIDAL TRIALS

 

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK IN A HAIR TRIAL?

Usually 3 months before your wedding date. I will always contact the bride to organise a trial 3 months before unless you prefer one sooner.

WHAT USUALLY HAPPENS AT A TRIAL?

We will first have a thorough consultation before deciding on a style we will try. I allow 1.5 - 2 hours for this appointment as we want to take our time and make the style as perfect as you would like it. I will take pictures of the finished hairstyle for references and write detailed notes including what you like or don’t like, so that on the wedding you can just sit back and relax.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

It’s good to bring 3 - 5 of your favourite hairstyle images, your wedding dress pictures, your veil, hair extensions or accessories.

CAN I BRING SOMEONE TO WATCH?

Yes, you may bring one guest to come and give you feedback.

CAN YOU DO A TRIAL FOR MY MUM AND BRIDESMAID TOO?

Unfortunately, I only offer trials for bride only. 

WILL YOU COME TO ME OR DO I COME TO YOU?

I only do hair trials at my home studio in Earlwood.

WHAT IF I'M NOT 100% SURE ABOUT MY HAIRSTYLE AFTER THE FIRST TRIAL?

Most brides have a second trial if they've done their bridal trial too far in advance. And it’s simply because they want to have options. So if you are unsure, please get in contact with me and we can organise another date. Standard bridal trial rate applies for the second trial.

CAN I TRY 2 HAIRSTYLES AT MY BRIDAL TRIAL?

Sorry I only offer one style at the bridal trial. But we will tweak it to ensure you are 100% happy.

OTHER HAIR SERVICES

DO YOU OFFER TOUCH UP OR SECOND LOOK FOR RECEPTION?

Yes, I do. I offer fee of $350 + travel for Bride's second look. Touching up for bridesmaids is complimentary. If you are interested please make a note in the enquiry form and I will add it as an option.

DO YOU TAKE FORMAL OR SPECIAL OCCASION HAIR BOOKINGS?

No, I now only take on wedding bookings or one on one classes.

CAN YOU CUT MY HAIR TO SUIT THE UPSTYLE?

During the appointment, I can trim the front of the hair to shape the face if the style requires, but I don't offer a full haircutting service.

DO YOU TRAVEL INTERSTATE OR OVERSEAS FOR WEDDING BOOKINGS?

I sometime accept these bookings as it takes up a lot of travel time which means I will have to block out 1 - 2 days worth of work. The client will need to provide the return flights, baggage allowance, accommodation, and compensation fee for lost of work during the travel time.

ON THE WEDDING DAY

HOW LONG DO YOU NORMALLY TAKE PER PERSON?

On the wedding day I take 45 minutes per upstyle, around 30 minutes for blowdries and I allow 1 hour for the bride.

DO YOU WORK WITH AN ASSISTANT?

I work on my own most of the time. I only bring an assistant if the client requests to get everyone ready faster. In this case, the client is to pay an additional assistant fee.

HOW DO I PREPARE MY HAIR FOR YOU ON THE WEDDING DAY?

Everyone is to come with clean and brushed hair. Hair should be smooth with no tangles. Washing the hair the night before is recommended. Anyone with curly or frizzy hair will need to blow dry their hair straight, otherwise it will cause delay in the hair styling process.

HAIR EXTENSIONS/ ACCESSORIES

WHAT EXTENSIONS DO YOU RECOMMEND?

I recommend Zala hair for general colours & Ulyana Aster for ombre extensions.

WHAT HAIR ACCESSORIES DO YOU USE?

I use Ulyana Aster accessories.

DO YOU DO HAIR EXTENSIONS?

I don’t provide permanent hair extension services but only work with clip in hair extensions. I recommend using only clip in hair extensions for your wedding hair.  I have some popular shades available so you can try them at the trial. If I don’t have your shade, I would suggest you bringing your own. You can get yours at Zala hair. If you are unsure please send me pictures of your hair in daylight, and what hairstyle you would like to achieve. Then, I can let you know if you will need hair extensions.

DO I BUY THE HAIR ACCESSORIES OR DO YOU PROVIDE THEM?

You can buy them if you want to, but I hire them out and you can simply post it back within 5 days after the wedding.

SORRY, SOMEONE HAVE PULLED OUT, CAN YOU REMOVE THIS FROM MY ORDER?

Once the job is booked, I am unable to remove the services. This is stated in the contract agreement that you've signed.

CAN I ADD EXTRA HAIR SERVICES ONTO THE QUOTE AT A LATER DATE?

Yes you may add on extra services if I'm available.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY WEDDING TIMING CHANGES, CAN YOU ACCOMODATE?

Yes, of course, you simply need to let me know what time you would like to be ready by and I will give you a new schedule.
