Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is it necessary to have a trial?
A: No. A trial gives us the opportunity to try different hair/makeup styles that you might want to try for your big day. It is key to everything going smoothly on the day of the wedding. However, we understand there are some circumstances where a trial cannot be done eg, you live abroad or have no availability before the event date. If you think this may apply to you, please get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate.
Q: When should I book my trial?
A: I recommend booking a trial 3-6 months prior to the wedding date. Please allow 3 hours for the trial. Usually, it's just the Bride but I am happy to do a trial on anyone who wants one. Please see the price list for more details.
Q: Do I need to pay a deposit?
A: Yes. A £50 deposit is due 7 days after receipt of the invoice. This will be sent after a quote has been agreed and a trial is in place. I keep this in a dedicate space within my bank account, so if you decide not to go ahead after the trial, this will be refunded. You have 7 days after the trial to cancel the booking. The deposit is nonrefundable and deducted from the balance of the invoice.
Q: How soon should I book?
A: Get in touch as soon as you know the date for your wedding. You can never be too organised and prepared when it comes to your wedding!
Q: What products do you use?
A: I use vegan and cruelty-free products. I strongly believe that these products are far better than any other as I feel that you cannot have a really great product that is made from chemicals and harmful ingredients. I research all of the products to make sure they do not contain any animal derived ingredients.
Q: Do you charge for mileage?
A: Within 15 miles of BN27, there is no travel fee. Outside of this, there is a 30p charge per mile, return trip.
Q: How far are you willing to travel?
A: I am willing to go anywhere to be a part of your special day. See above for details on travel expenses.
