Minimum Booking Requirements
For hair or makeup only there is a minimum booking of £300, which can be made up however you wish. For example, Bride and Bridesmaid hair trial plus Bride and Bridesmaid hair on the wedding day.
At your trial run we will discuss your wedding theme, dress and your hair and makeup ideas and inspiration. This will all be taken in to consideration to achieve the desired look. You will have the opportunity to try different styles and tweak the final look to ensure every little detail is 100% perfect.
Please note that trials are held on weekdays between 10am to 2pm, either at my work space in Billericay or at your chosen venue in Essex.
Lashes And Airbrushing
Airbrushing foundation is included in the above costs. Depending on the desired look and the client’s skin type then either airbrushing or traditional foundation will be used. One set of lashes is included at the trial and on the wedding day. Additional sets of lashes used, after the first set, are charged at £5 extra per person, per set.
Clip in hair extensions will be provided for your trial run but will need to be purchased by the client for the wedding day. Requirements will be discussed at your trial.
Additional trials after the main trial are charged at £40 for hair and £40 for makeup each for the bride and any member of the bridal party.
Terms and Conditions
You can view my terms and conditions on this blog post.
How long do you allow for each person’s hair and makeup on the wedding day?
Depending on the style I usually allow an hour and half for Bride hair and makeup, and one hour for others in the bridal party's hair and makeup. There is no time limit during your trial.
Do you charge travel costs?
Travel to anywhere within Essex is included. Areas outside Essex are charged at 40p per mile from the Essex border for the round trip, plus toll charges if necessary.
When should I wash my hair before my trial?
Hair washed the day before your trial can sometimes be easier to work with. However, if you have an oily scalp and would prefer to wash your hair on the morning of your trial and wedding day then this is fine also.
Do I need to pay a deposit and how can payments be made?
A non-refundable deposit of £20 will be required to hold the date of your wedding in my diary up until your trial. This will be taken off your trial cost when you pay for your trial, which can either be on the day in cash or by bank transfer immediately after. Once you are 100% happy with your trial a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the total wedding day cost is required to finally secure the wedding day in my diary. Again, this can either be paid in cash at the trial on within 2 days after the trial by bank transfer.
Are lashes and airbrush foundation included in the costs?
Yes. Airbrushing foundation and lashes are included in the costs. Depending on the desired look then either airbrushing or traditional foundation will be used. One set of lashes is included at the trial and on the wedding day. Additional sets of lashes used, after the first set, are charged at £5 extra per person, per set.
