The next step is the trial run. Many brides prefer to have the trial sooner rather than later, so that there is enough time for the hair to grow if necessary. It can also help them visualise how they will look when trying on dresses and accessories. Before you have the trial, try to collect some pictures that show styles you do like and those you don’t. I use a variety of tried, tested and trusted make up brands including MAC, Benefit, Cosmetics a la Carte, Nars, Laura Mercier, Clinique and Bobbi Brown. If you have sensitive skin and/or you have any favourite products… just let me know.
We will spend a fair bit of time discussing all the options to create the perfect make-up and hairstyle for you, before I even start on your hair. You will need to allow 2-3 hours, but it doesn’t always take that long.
If we are doing a trial run before the wedding then it’s a good idea to have your veil, tiaras or hair accessories so we can perfect the look you want on your wedding day in case you haven’t yet decided what you want. When your hair is finished and you are happy with it, I will take photographs for reference. After we’ve created your finished look, we can then discuss what styles the rest of the bridal party are having and work out a rough timetable.
It’s not always necessary for your bridesmaids or mum to have a trial, (and in any case, some live miles away so it’s not always possible). As long as I know what style they require and you have a picture of their hair as it usually is, that is fine. It’s useful if they have picture of the style they would like, as it helps me with working out a schedule.
On the big day I will arrive at the agreed time with my huge collection of makeup and hairdressing tools, ready to help make your hair and your day wonderful.

What a lovely day, Hayley, we couldn’t have done it without you. And if we had we would not have looked half so good 😉
Hayley, I just wanted to say thank-you, you were wonderful. Cool calm and collected from first till last. Looking forward to you doing my hair regularly now!
What a find you turned out to be! Our make up and hair looked perfect all day and I have the close-ups to prove it. My mother was delighted and so were the girls. I’ve already given your name to lots of people! Thanks again.
