Bridal Hair & Makeup Consultations
I like to call a ‘trial’ a ‘consultation’. Because that’s exactly what my service provides. By definition, a ‘trial’ is a ‘test’. I believe, that my time with you is not about testing my skill, it’s about bringing elements of your wedding day together, so I can create an amazing look that will enhance your features, but also match your overall style and look. Spending a good amount of quality time with my brides allows me to get to know you, to ask all the appropriate questions to get the most out of our consult time and for you to walk away 100% confident that your look on the wedding day will be unique, will be suited to you personally, and will have everyone talking about how incredible and glowing you were!
Consults are not a mobile service as I need 110% of my kit to be able to accommodate to every single need and wish. I have hair extensions, veils, headpieces etc here to play with to help you visualise every detail to give you the best overall experience.
When we meet, you are welcomed into my home studio, just 15 mins south of Wollongong. Prior to your appointment time, you will be sent information on how to properly prepare your hair and skin so you can get the most out of our time together. 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 Consultation Fee
Please note, consultations are only available to current brides who have already secured their date with me. I can certainly offer a special occasion booking for unconfirmed brides by appointment.
Makeup Consultation $150 – 1.5 hours
Hair Consultation $150 -1.5 hours
This may include alternate styles and changes within the given time frame. Should you wish to have a consult for a bridesmaid / mother on the same day, a fee of $120 per additional person applies.
Monday- Thursday, 9am- 3pm. By Appointment
Due to an overwhelming demand for weekend weddings, I do not offer weekend consult dates. All consults will take place Monday-Thursday, between 9am- 3pm by appointment. It is important you wear your makeup style for at least a few hours to see wear on the skin as this gives me the best chance to be able to make minor tweaks on the day to give you the best service possible. It is also best to complete your trial in natural light therefore evening appointments are not advisable.
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! Clip in hair 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.
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 on a different day. 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! Should you wish to have a second trial to try a different style, a reduced rate of $120 per section applies.
