Let us answer your most common queries​

Bridal Hair and Make-up artistry, like many other art forms, is very personal and subjective. We would  first recommend finding a stylist who’s body of previous work  matches your style or has elements that inspire you. We have then designed a personalised  beauty consultation form for you to fill in, ahead of the trial , that ensures we can get to know you a little better so we can tailor our skill set to each and every bride-to-be. 

 

Why hire two companies when you can have the convenience of one! Hiring a company that does both does make the process logistically easier; plus you get the benefit of seeing how your hair and makeup looks compliment each other at the trial.

  • Experience in the field: There are bridal hair and makeup artist for all different budgets! Trusting your supplier has enough experience to deal with the stresses of the day is so important- but more experienced stylists are in demand and the prices will reflect this. 
  • Do you have a contract in place with your vendor? This ensures you don’t lie awake the night before your wedding wondering if your hair and makeup artist is going to arrive on time!
  • Professionalism and a friendly face!: Our experience extends beyond the hair and makeup chair  as we are with you up until you walk down the aisle! It is important you feel comfortable in your stylists hands and can request adjustments to your look- knowing they won’t take it personally and are the ultimate professional! 
  • High End, Luxury Products: We use everything from Charlotte tilbury, NARS, MAC and Moroccan oil for the ultimate, luxury pampering experience.
  • A beauty authority with Degree level educated: BA (Hons) Media Make-up  Artistry & Hair styling

This is very common, and why a trial is essential! Many of our clients have never had professional hair and makeup before and thus we view the trial as a consultation; getting to know your personal preferences and testing anything you want to test. We start with a lighter application, consulting you every step of the way!

Trials last anywhere between 2-4 hours depending on your personal requirements. In order to ensure a smooth running of the trial, we send you full details on how to prepare once the deposit has been made. A good rule of thumb is to arrive with no makeup and day old hair for all hairstyles that aren’t blow drys. You can check out our blog for more useful tips and tricks.

Yes, absolutely- this is really normal! At the trial, we often make skincare, hair care and makeup recommendations that will help elevate your look on the wedding day. We also request your feedback on your look after the trial, to ensure you look and feel exactly how you want to!

Yes, and all the details are in the terms and conditions here.

The full terms and conditions can be found here; however we love to accommodate destination weddings & are happy for either yourself or us to arrange travel, hotels and transfers.

Although we hope this will never happen, you will not be committed to book, however the Booking fee will be retained.
Booking fee’s are non-refundable and covers the administration costs, and holding of your wedding date in the diary.

Due to the high demand for wedding dates, this fee is to secure the date for the delivery of the services for the event, plus the administration cost required to deliver the trial and wedding services. This is peace of mind to both yourself and the artist and it is strongly recommended you reserve your wedding date.
We schedule each and every wedding so you know exactly what to expect on the wedding day. Timings will vary depending on the styles required, however on average we schedule 2 hours for the Bride and up-to 1.5 hours for guests, for both hair and makeup. We endeavour to get your bridal party ready around 1 hour before you would like to leave in order to get into your dress and take any pictures.

The lashes are a complimentary extra offered by us so we would not be able to discount if you prefer not to have them.
