What to Expect/FAQ
Updated: Mar 15
Whether it's a trial for your wedding, a photoshoot, or you're a bridesmaid or mother getting styled, let me answer all your questions before you're in our chair!
What to bring
Inspiration photos! We love seeing your inspiration photos, they can really help us get an idea of the overall look and vibe of you hair and makeup aspersions. However, please remember that most photos from Pinterest are of models that most likely have extensions,
wigs, and photoshop at their disposal. We pride ourselves at embodying the theme or vibe of a photo but can not expect to get it exact. With that in mind, try to find photos with similar hair length and color as well as skin tone, eye shape and so on.
If you have hair accessories or a veil, please be sure to bring these along as well!
How long to expect
Please allow at least 90 minutes for your bridal trial. Bridesmaids, and photoshoots expect an hour for both hair and makeup.
How to prepare
Come with clean, dry hair and a clean makeup free face. It is a common misconception that dirty hair holds styles better. As this may be true for some people, all hair types are different and if you're on the oilier side it can be a disaster! We can always make hair more textured with product, but we can't make dirty hair clean!
If it's in your budget I recommend getting regular facials starting at least 6 weeks prior to your big day, with the last one at least 4 days prior. The night before exfoliate and use a heavy moisturizer. Morning of follow your normal skincare but skip heavy sunscreen. We will apply a light SPF that works with our makeup. And remember, do not wax or pluck at least 4 days prior as makeup will not stay on freshly waxed skin!
Will you need to touch up your makeup?
You will need to touch up your lips throughout the day. Brides will receive a lip sample in a little plastic pot for touch ups, but I do recommend purchasing your lipstick for easy touchups. We only use professional products and techniques that make sure your makeup lasts all day. In hot weather I do sugget having a pressed powder with you as well.
