Frequently Asked Questions about Bridal Hair Trials: Find Answers to Your Wedding Hair Inquiries.

This blog is an opportunity to answer some questions you might have and to guide you through your journey to your dream wedding hair. 

WHAT IS A WEDDING TRIAL AND DO I NEED ONE?

A wedding trial is an opportunity to have a face-to-face conversation with your hair stylist where you can discuss if you have any allergies and what type of look you are hoping to achieve. For my brides, it’s an opportunity for us to try out different styles to work out what you like and what works for you. I would highly recommend having one. I would love to help you choose your Style… 

WHEN SHOULD I HAVE MY TRIAL?

I would recommend having your first hair trial as soon as you have chosen your beautiful wedding gown and booked your venue. This means you have enough time to decide on what you like and don’t like for your chosen wedding look. To book in your hair trial, start by booking an initial consultation with me, then fill out a booking form and return to me via email before the date of your trial.

SHOULD I WASH AND DRY MY HAIR BEFORE MY HAIR TRIAL?

Yes, I always request you arrive to your trial with clean, dry hair that is free from products. If possible, wash your hair the evening before, and leave it to dry naturally or with a dryer. Please do not use products in your hair, as this makes sure I know what condition your hair will likely be in on your wedding day.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO THE TRIAL?

Inspiration Photos: Bring pictures or examples of hairstyles that you like and would like to try for your wedding day. 

Hair Accessories: If you have already chosen any hair accessories, such as a veil, hairpiece, hair pins, flowers or tiara, bring them to the trial. This will allow me to incorporate them into the hairstyle and ensure they complement your overall look.  If not, we can discuss this on your second hair trial if you have not decided yet. 

 Hair Extensions: If you plan to use hair extensions on your wedding day, let me know or bring them to the second hair trial so that we can work with them and create the desired volume or length.

Veil or Headpiece: If you have already purchased your wedding veil or headpiece, bring it to the trial. This will help the hairstylist incorporate it into the hairstyle and ensure it sits properly. 

Communication: Be prepared to communicate your preferences and provide feedback during the hair trial. It is important to communicate openly with me to ensure I understand your vision and can make any necessary adjustments. Remember to schedule your hair trial well in advance of your wedding day to allow time for any adjustments or changes.

CAN YOU STYLE MY BRIDESMAIDS’, MUM’S AND GUESTS’ HAIR TOO?

Of course! You want your whole bridal party to have gorgeous hair. Hairstyling is usually booked for the entire bridal party and this can be carried out in different rooms if needed on your wedding day. I recommend that at least one bridesmaid  has a hair trial prior to the wedding or this can be organised for the same time as yours on your second hair trial. Or I can arrange a different date when the whole bridal party can attend. Or try out different styles and you’re hair styled and show you different looks for the bridesmaids. 

WHAT ARE OUR PRICES?

I have a selection of packages to choose from then you can add extra guests on, hair and makeup packages can also be added and any optional extras. You can see these in more detail over on my prices page.

I LIKED MY HAIR TRIAL AND NOW I WANT TO SECURE MY DATE; HOW DO I GO ABOUT THIS?

If you are 100% happy with my service from your hair trial, and would like to book us for your wedding day, I will require a £200 deposit to secure the booking. This figure will be deducted from the final cost. Once the deposit is paid, I will confirm in writing the date secured and services requested. This deposit is non-refundable if your wedding is cancelled or numbers change in your wedding party.

HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL?

I offer free travel for up to 30 miles, then it’s just £0.45p per mile. Congestion charge, parking fees, ferry fees, flight costs, accommodation (where applicable for early starts if travelling a long distance) will discuss this first before we are about to added to the total cost. Mileage is calculated based on a round trip from my address in Salisbury,

Now you’ve had some of your questions answered and you’re ready to book in a hair trial, (or maybe you’ve got more questions you’d like answered), let’s take the first step to your wedding look with an initial consultation, you can book yours here.
