GET TO KNOW YOUR PROFESSIONALS
A trial is certainly advisable but not essential. It is a chance to not only meet and get to know your hairdresser and make up artist that will be looking after you at your wedding, but it also gives you an opportunity to try the look you may have chosen for your wedding day. If you haven’t chosen or can’t decide, myself or my experienced team will be there to offer you advice and guidance.
We will carefully listen to your requests and offer advise when needed. It is a great idea to bring along inspirational photos or ideas and to discuss them with your artists. Please don’t hesitate to give us your feedback at your trial, as your input is very important to guide us in providing a look that is perfect for you.
TEST THE PRODUCTS
It is also a good opportunity to test the products, particularly if you do have sensitive skin. Our team all use professional quality products, however each skin is individual. Please advise if you have any allergies or sensitivities prior to your trial.
In most cases it is only the Bride who will have a trial, however Bridesmaids are more than welcome to book a trial if they wish.
TRIAL TIMES AND AVAILABILITY
A hair and make up trial can take up to 2.5 hours as time is taken to discuss your colour themes and styles of your wedding and you also need time to communicate to your hairdresser and make up artist your desires and preferences. Of course the artists that perform your trial will be the ones that attend to you on your wedding day.
WHEN TO BOOK A TRIAL
We generally recommend arranging a trial within a month of making your initial booking.
There is a $100 non refundable holding deposit which is paid at the time of booking. This will come of the balance on the wedding day. Trial is charged separately and is payable on the day of the trial.
At the completion of your trial, 50% of your balance will be requested to confirm your booking. This will be required within 7 days of your trial. This will also secure your booking with that Make Up Artist or Hairdresser. Balance will be payable on the day or week prior.

We are happy to do a trial on a weekend however, we need to work around weddings already booked and there is a chance that we may have to reschedule at the last minute if we get a wedding booking or emergency back up is needed. We give our brides priority and of course you will have the same commitment on your special day.
In the unlikely event, such as extreme illness, accident or emergency, I will endeavour to source an experienced replacement for your hairdresser or make up artist. I have many professional contacts in the industry and within our team.
