WHAT DEPOSIT DO YOU TAKE?
A €100 deposit secures your booking/date. This is then deducted from your outstanding balance on the wedding day.
WHEN/WERE DO TRIALS TAKE PLACE?
Trials can take place anytime after your booking has been made. Some brides opt for a trial up to a year or more in advance, whereas some prefer to leave it until a few ahead of heir special day. The choice is entirely yours and a personal one. I am happy to travel to you for a trial, where a small travel fee will be included.
HOW LONG DOES A TRIAL TAKE AND HOW SHOULD I PREPARE?
A hair or makeup trial takes around 1.5 hours, although I normally allow 2 hours in case you are wanting to try multiple styles. For both a Hair & Makeup trial It normally takes no longer than 2.5 hours but it is best to allow 3.
To prepare for a Hair/Makeup trial it is a good idea to have some reference photos of styles you like or have in mind. At this stage I will have already been in contact with you to discuss if items such as extensions are needed.
You will not need any of your own products, unless of course you are wanting to use any of your own. Skin just needs to be cleansed and dry. I will prep the skin with whatever skincare is required to suit you, ahead of the makeup application.
Hair is best if washed one day ahead of your trial, unless it needs washing everyday, in which the morning of the trial (please blow dry/naturally dry before my arrival)
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING FOR THE TRIAL?
If having a hair trial it is advisable to bring any hairpieces you have and are wanting to use in the hair on the day, and also veil if you have this. Depending on your hairstyle it may be advisable to have clip in hair extensions and bring these along to add bulk/length to your own hair.
For a makeup trial you do not need to bring any of your own products unless you have any allergies/special requirements or particular products you desire to use.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
Once payment of your deposit has been made this secures your booking. Cancellations can be made at any point up until one month before the wedding at no extra charge, but please be advised the deposit is non-refundable. If you make a cancellation one month or less ahead of the wedding there will be a 20% charge from your outstanding total bill.
WHEN WILL YOU NEED FINAL NUMBERS IN BRIDAL
PARTY FOR HAIR/MAKEUP?
The sooner you know how many in your bridal party would like Hair/Makeup, the better, as it allows me time to organise an assistant if needed. Final numbers are needed a minimum of 6 weeks ahead of your special day.
HOW LONG DO YOU NEED ON THE MORNING?
This depends on your ceremony time & how many there are in your bridal party. Once your booking has been made, I will go onto more detail for the breakdown of the wedding morning, but for a rough estimate I allow the following. 45 mins per person for hair OR makeup (less time for blowdries), 1.5 hours for both Hair & Makeup. I then allow 1.5-2 hours for Hair & Makeup for the Bride.
I aim to have you all ready 30-45 mins ahead of ceremony time, allowing you time to get into your dress, have photographs taken, have any last minute touch ups. I stay until you leave to walk down the aisle/ go to your venue and am on hand for any touch ups until this point.
WHEN/HOW ARE FINAL PAYMENTS MADE?
2-4 weeks ahead of the wedding I will email to confirm final numbers in your bridal party for hair/makeup. At this stage I can give you a final breakdown of costs. Payment can be made either via bank transfer anytime between then and the wedding. If paying in cash please make payment once I arrive on the morning in an envelope containing cash.
DO YOU OFFER ANY OTHER TREATMENTS?
Full body massage (relaxation)
Facials (no extraction)
DO YOU CHARGE A TRAVEL FEE?
There will be a travel fee dependant on your wedding/trial locations. There can be discussed further via email correspondence.
DO YOU OFFER A TOUCH-UP SERVICE?
Yes I offer a variety of packages, these can all be found in
my price list.
DO YOU OFFER MALE GROOMING/BARBERING?
I do not offer barbering, although if the groom is needing any skincare treatments or any touch ups (blemishes/redness/excess oiliness) I can offer this service.
