Frequently Asked Questions

How long do you allow for each person's hair and makeup on the day?

I usually allow couple of hours for the bride's hair and makeup, and an hour to hour and a half for others in the bridal party. However it all depends on the required styles. Timings can be discussed at your trial run when more information about required hairstyles and makeup is provided.

Do you charge travel costs?

There's no travel costs for areas within approximately half an hour drive from where I live (HA5 3AR). Travel cost may apply for other areas. Please include the location of your wedding in your email when contacting me so  I can get back to you with an accurate quote.

When should I wash my hair before the trial run?

I usually ask my brides to wash their hair the night before the trial as hair can sometimes be easier to work with when washed in advance. However, if you have an oily scalp and tend to wash your hair everyday then this is also fine as long as your hair is washed and blow dried at least couple of hours before your appointment.

Do I need to pay a deposit to secure my wedding date?

Yes. A non-refundable deposit of £50 is required to hold the date of your wedding in my diary up until your trial run. This amount is then taken off the cost of your trial and is non-refundable in case of cancellation.

Which areas do you cover?

I'm based in Pinner, Middlesex but there's no real limit to how far I would travel to for a wedding. If you like my work and would like to book me for your wedding day I'm more than happy to come to you wherever you are in or outside of London (travel costs may apply).

Can my bridal party have a trial?

It is not essential for everyone in the booking to have a trial run beforehand but if your mum or any of the bridesmaids would like one I’m very happy to accommodate this. I would ask however that bridal trial run is booked on the same day as the bridal party if possible.

What happens if there are 5-8 bridesmaids (or more) and mother of the bride all wanting their hair and make up done on the day?

I am lucky to have a trusted pro team who accompany me to larger bookings so we can work alongside each other and achieve high standard of finish in good time. Please mention the numbers when contacting me so that I can check availabilities before getting back to you.
