Click here for some helpful advice

How long will the trial last?

The trial is approximately 1.5 hours for hair or makeup and 2.5 hours for both

Are your artists insured?

Yes, all of our artist’s have public liability insurance

Do i pay for the artist’s travel?

Yes, and all the details are in the terms and conditions below.

What products does the artist use?

None of our artists are affliated with a particular brand so all use a mix of high quality makeup products in their kit.

If i’m not happy at the trial am i committed to book?

 No, and you are just liable to pay for the trial and any travel charges incurred.

Can I book in a trial without paying the deposit first?

Our artists are all very popular so we always ask for a deposit first to hold your wedding date in their diaries before booking in your trial.

How long shall I allow for hair and makeup on my wedding day?

your artists will work this out for you at the trial, however as a rough guide for approximate timings we suggest 2 hours for bridal hair and makeup and and 1 hour per person for everyone.

Can I reduce the price of the package if I don’t include lashes?

The lashes are a complimentary extra offered by us so we would not be able to discount if you prefer not to have them.

Can I remove services once the booking is confirmed?

It is at the discretion of the artist and the agency as we do have a minimum booking size on busy days.

Can my bridesmaids pay you separately?

All payment must come from whoever confirms the booking for simplicity. Our brides typically collect payment from their wedding party before final payment is due.

How should I prepare for our hair and makeup on the day?

We ask that you and anyone in your party having hair and makeup arrive with clean, makeup-free faces and freshly washed and dry hair (wet if they’re having just a blowdry). Be sure to avoid leave-in conditioners and hair masks.
