How to prepare for your trial

  • Even if you are unsure on the look you are after or have to many looks in mind, I would still collect a Collect a couple of inspiration photos of styles you like and don’t like, this way I can gauge your style to create something bespoke to you.

  • When looking at inspiration photos try looking for models with similar hair types as you, consider the colour, thickness, and length.

  • If you have thin fine hair, or hair that doesn’t hold a curl, you might benefit from hair extensions.

  • Wash your hair the night before (double shampoo and use a small amount of conditioner only on the ends) or if your hair gets greasy quickly wash on the morning of.

  • Avoid any hair masks or conditioning treatments before the trial and wedding day.

  • Please make sure your hair is bone dry.

  • Try not to use any hair products.

  • Please arrive makeup free and cleanse (exfoliate) and moisturise before.

  • Having a trial during the daylight is highly recommended, this will ensure you get to see how your makeup will really look in all its glory. Artificial lighting can make the makeup look misleading.

  • Please allow up to 2- 2.5 hours for a hair and makeup trial.

  • There will usually only be enough time to try one style (however if you do not like the first one, we will adapt to create something you love!).

  • Bring along your veil if you have one or any hair accessories you think you’ll be wearing on the day.
