Preparation for Your Bridal Trial
The trial session will take place at our home studio in North London (Enfield), which should ideally in daylight hours, we will also photograph each look, so even if you change your mind after the trial we will have a record of all styles carried out.
During a trial session, we will go beyond just talking and actually do the exact bridal makeup and wedding hair look we discussed. We will also try different bridal makeup and wedding hair looks if you are uncertain which best suits you. You will have a very accurate idea of the look you have dreamed of and the peace of mind that come the big day – you will look exactly how you had envisioned.
Why do you need a trial session for your bridal hair and wedding makeup?
Imagine the day of your wedding, the clock is ticking closer to your ceremony and you want everything to be perfect. Many things are happening all at once and there are time limitations. You may not have the flexibility to make any changes if you are not satisfied with the look of the hair and makeup you had chosen earlier during your consultation.
This doesn’t mean that we cannot make you look absolutely gorgeous without a trial session. However, when it comes to hair and makeup, your personal preferences play a big role. We want you to look your best, with perfect confidence that your wedding hair and makeup represents you at your best.
When is the best time for your trial session?
You should schedule your trial session within 2 to 3 months before your wedding day. Brides who do the trial session too early often end up changing their looks several times over. On top of having to pay more for the extra trial sessions, you could easily end up choosing to settle for a look that is not the best for you.
If you are an early planner, you can absolutely schedule your trial session far in advance if you already have all your wedding accessories ready – hair accessories, veil and everything else.
How should you prepare for your trial session?
It is helpful to do a little homework beforehand to provide your artist with some inspiration photos. These images will most effectively communicate what you want and save a lot of time. Please carry along all the accessories that you will wear on your neck and above (tiara, veil, earrings, necklace and other accessories). It is also a great idea to wear a white top that has neckline similar to that of your wedding dress.
Your hair should be clean and completely dry. This way, it will be easier for us to style and switch between different looks if necessary. On the night before, use a gentle exfoliant on your skin and lips. The smoother your skin, the better your makeup.
How long does the trial take?
Working with bridal makeup artist and hairstylist can take between 2-3 hours for your trial session.
The Wedding Day
On your wedding morning I will come to your home or venue in plenty of time and you can enjoy a relaxing light music and professional makeover which will leave you feeling pampered, calm and ready for the big day.
A professional makeover will give you the confidence to look and feel your very best and because we have practised the look at the trial you can relax and enjoy the experience.
You may have decided that you would also like to include members of your wedding party, such as mother or mother-in-law and bridesmaids, in which case they can also enjoy the makeover experience and the whole wedding party will look stunning for the day and for those all important photos.
