"When should I book my wedding preview?"
The sweet spot for a wedding preview is 2-3 months before the wedding, this is a perfect time since you already figure the dress, jewelry and accessories. I know sometimes brides don’t live locally and we have to do their trial a year before or just days before the wedding. That’s fine too. It is important for you to have your regular color services before the trial to ensure the look will be very similar to your wedding day. Lastly do not make any drastic hair changes after the trial.
"Where will we do my trial?"
Trials are done at my home studio located in the North Shore area, and can only be accommodated on weekday 9:30am-1:00pm. No Saturdays or Sundays.
"Can I do a trial before actually booking?"
Unfortunately trials are reserve for brides who already booked their wedding date. I will suggest to book as soon as possible. I'm happy to offer a complimentary phone consultation. Please take the time to explore my work, look at my portfolio and read my reviews.
"Do I need to know how many people want their hair and makeup done?"
When you are signing your contract, yes! Try to get your people to commit. I know its hard, especially with these things usually being booked out so far in advance. I would like to know the final number at least 3 months before the wedding so I can make proper arrangements.
"Can I book the minimum services now and add more later?"
Once contract is signed, number of services cannot be decreased. If you would like to request to add on more services later, I will let you know if I am able to accommodate the request. If I am unable to accommodate the request, additional services cannot be added to the contract. It is important to get an accurate count of confirmed services as early as possible.
"What time do we start and how long will it take to get ready?"
I typically start between 7:00 and 9:00 am and spend 5-6 hours pampering you and your wedding party, depending on the size of the wedding party and the number of services. If you have an early wedding please check for availability. I usually spend 40-45 minutes per hairstyle. One hour for the bridal hairstyle.
"I have curly hair and I want to embrace my curls in my style. Is this possible? How should I prep by hair?”
Yes! I LOVE working with curly hair and enhancing them in an upstyle. Prep: Wash hair the night before and use your regular moisturizing products.
"How should my bridal party and I prepare and what do we need to bring?"
Updo's Everyone receiving services must come with CLEAN DRY hair (washed the night before preferably). If you have curly hair and you are looking for a smooth style, please blow dry smooth but do not use a flat iron.
Blowouts: Should come with clean, damp hair. Do not use any hair product.
Makeup: A clean face, free of any mascara residue. I recommend to get into a good skin care regimen and focus on moist skin. Use a nourishing sheet mask the night before and drink lots of water. I ask everyone to bring their own lipstick for touch-ups.
