Frequently Asked Questions
How do I book you?
I typically like to start out with a consultation to discuss your wedding needs. Once we meet and decide if we are a good fit, we sign a contract and I ask for a deposit. From there we can book a trial run and make sure all the other details are in a row for your special day. A timeline of services will be determined ahead of time to ease the stress of the wedding day.
How far in advance should I book you?
There is never such a thing as to early to book! I do recommend getting on the schedule at least 6 months before your wedding, although I will try my best to accommodate the brides last minute or with time constraints.
How should I prepare for my trial appointment?
I will need to have you and the entire bridal party with clean blow dried hair. I would prefer no product in the hair, for I will grit it up with the products I bring. I recommend to bring pictures of the certain styles you are looking to recreate.
When is the best time for my hair trial?
Hair trial for your wedding day can be done at anytime, however, I do recommend 2-3 months prior to the wedding. This way there is plenty of time to make changes such as: cuts, color, or hair treatments if necessary. Every clients requirements are different, but on average I recommend allowing an hour and a half for us to create and perfect your desired style.
How Long does a trial run take?
Every client is different, but on average it takes about an hour and a half for a hair trial appointment. We will start off by getting to know one another, and some simple details regarding your wedding. Then we will talk about the hairstyles you are envisioning, and begin recreating them! Together, we will see what you like and don't like, and how well your hair will be holding this specific style.
Does the Bridal party do a trial?
Although a trial run is mostly for the bride, if you are worried or concerned about your hair we most definitely can get you scheduled for a trial as well. Prices for a trial are the same as the day of cost, because the same amount of product and pins will be used to secure the updo. Another alternative if you are skeptical about your hair and do not want to pay for a trial, would be to have an in depth phone conversation. I am happy to help and ease some of the fear!
Can I try more than one style?
Yes you can certainly try more than one style, but I do ask clients to try and pin point two of their favorites. If you have to many choices it can get confusing, and can sometimes lead to an unsuccessful trial. It is also difficult to maintain the hair if it is put up and taken down multiple times and can cause it to look untidy. There are many factors with hair such as thickness and length when viewing a hairstyle, but assuming you have just the right amount, I will be able to replicate the style very closely. If you are wanting a style with a great deal of length, then you may need to consider some clip in hair extensions to achieve this. I am happy to help you through the process of choosing the correct length and color if desired.
can you style my whole bridal party?
Yes! I am a solo stylist, but on average I usually style about 8 women per event. If needed, or on a time crunch, I can see if I am able to get some assistance. Typically on the wedding day, I spend about 1 hour with the bride, and about 35 minutes per bridesmaid. Take into consideration, more detailed hairstyles and extremely long/thick hair may take a few extra minutes.
Can you stay for the service?
I do offer this service, so please mention this at the time of booking so I can properly quote you for this. I am happy to stay until after the ceremony or pictures to help remove the veil, as well as to touch up any hair that is needed. Price will depend of the number of additional hours needed.
Are there any additional costs?
The cost of the chosen style will be determined upon consultation followed by the signing of the contract. There will be no extra cost or hidden fees for the styles quoted. I do offer a collection of headbands, clips, and broaches to place in the hair that may be purchased at an additional cost if desired.
After booking, what are the next steps?
After we sign the contact and book you for your trial run, the next steps are easy. You just marked one more thing off your to do list, so take a breather! In the days, weeks, or months prior to your wedding we wont be strangers. I will check in occasionally to just say hello, and invite you to some wonderful open houses and events along the way. I am constantly updating my website with the latest weddings and blogs, so stay tuned!
