WEDDING IMMINENT? ... DON'T BE STRESSED
BOOK A TRIAL PREPARE WITH THE BEST!
WHAT IS A TRIAL RUN?
No, it's not a trial marriage even though that might not be a bad idea – a trial is a great opportunity for you to meet with your stylist to discuss and test hairstyles, coloring, extensions, headpieces, etc and the make-up in preparation for your wedding day.
Pre-planning before your wedding will eliminate last minute panic decisions and reduce stress levels. Every detail of hairstyle, coloring, etc., and make-up of your choice will be discussed in detail and I will personally tailor the finished result exactly as requested. Also having a trial is an amazing opportunity to meet your artist prior to your wedding day and get to know them better. I remain friends with many of my clients long after the wedding day.
WHEN TO ARRANGE A TRIAL?
My advice would be to arrange a trial between one and three months before the wedding date and certainly no longer than three months as this would affect your hair length, coloring or possibly skin tone.
This would be my personal recommendation, however, I would be happy to accommodate any dates requested and would try to facilitate last minute bookings.
HOW LONG DOES A TRIAL TAKE?
The average time for a hair and make-up trial is three to four hours, depending upon how detailed your chosen look is.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM A TRIAL?
Trials are mainly arranged for brides- to -be, but can also be booked for any of your family members, bridesmaids, and guests.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BRING WITH YOU ON A TRIAL?
Everything that you think matters – hairpiece, favorite lipstick, face cream you can't live without, your veil if it is ready for a trial ... anything that will help create the final look as it would be on your wedding day. If you are planning to have hair extensions on your wedding day then I would strongly advise you to bring them too.
If you are unsure of which style of headpiece would be suitable, don't worry. I have a few styles in my studio that we can experiment with to give you options and a clearer picture of which style suits best.

'' I couldn't think of a better person to have had with us ''
'' I wanted to say an absolutely massive thank you for doing my wedding hair (plus bridesmaids & Mum) at my wedding in February at the Montague Arms Hotel (20th Feb). You did a fantastic job and everyone's hair looked amazing for the entire day. In fact, one of the bridesmaids refused to take it out and the hairstyle lasted all the way through the following day!
I couldn't think of a better person to have had with us preparing that morning and you certainly calmed me down. I just can't thank you enough for everything you did from the trial all the way through to the big day!
I wish you the very best in the future, you are a star and absolutely deserve every success!
Thank you again! Lots of love, Sarah ''
