Bridal Hair & Makeup Trials

Your hair and makeup trial is our time to get to know each other to allow us to work together to bring your hair and makeup ideas to life. When we meet, we will go through your vision for the day, and look at hair and makeup styles that will suit you to bring your dream look to reality. For your trial, you are welcomed into my home studio, just 15 mins south of Wollongong.

Prior to your trial, you will be sent information on what to bring, what to wear, and how to properly prepare your hair and skin so you can get the most out of our time together. After a hair and skin consultation, any changes may be made within the booked time frame. Following our time together, you will receive a recap of any information we have discussed, as well as professional quality images so you can be confident your look will photograph to perfection.

Trial Consultations

Makeup Trial $150 – 1.5 hours

Hair Trial $150 -1.5 hours

Trials are available by appointment. Please contact me to secure yours.

Weekend trial dates are limited to the dates below (updated regularly)  however midweek appointments are available on a Monday, Wednesday and Thursday between 9am – 3pm. Appointments after 3pm are not recommended due to the lack of natural light, and it’s also important for you to wear the makeup style for at least a few hours to see how it wears on your skin. This gives me the best chance to be able to make minor tweaks on the day to give you the best service possible.

*A complementary trial is offered to brides who book their photography package with Gavin Cato Photography.

Midweek Appointments available on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays. Please get in touch to check available times.

Products Available

I have a range of touchup products for your wedding day. These include lipstick, lipgloss, pressed power and my very popular bridal touch up kits, which have everything you need to survive the day! You can view these ranges when you visit the studio for your trial. Preordering a lipstick or gloss for your bridesmaids is a lovely gift idea, and watch the girls have fun choosing a colour they love and that suits them! Human hair clip in extensions can be colour matched to your own natural hair and are available for preorder at your trial to give you the best option to achieve certain styles if you have hair that is too thin, or too short.

Trial Guarantee

I am dedicated to creating a style that you will feel confident with! So for absolute peace of mind, if you are not completely satisfied with the outcome of your look by the end of our time together, a complimentary re- trial may be booked in. I simply ask that if you are not 100% happy with the outcome, once my professional photos are taken, that all makeup is removed and hair taken out prior to leaving the studio. You are most welcome to wear the look once we have gotten it just perfect for you!
