Once you have made the decision to use the services of a professional, organising a trial in advance is definitely recommended. This is your time to discuss and cover all of the queries you may have regarding your hair and make up. It is also to see what suits you and to make sure what you are envisioning is practical and suits your hair and skin type. Mood boards, photos and any other references that you like are always good to have to hand. There are plenty of ideas and inspiration in the photo galleries to guide you and Dawn is always happy to discuss any looks that you think will fit your dress style, colour schemes and your comfort zone. Dawn can also advise on a time schedule that you can share with your bridal party, photographer and anyone else involved in your wedding preparation.
Throughout the trial Dawn will be able to offer her professional advice and support to ensure you accomplish a look that is perfect for you. Dawn can also give you advice on skincare leading up to your big day.
It is also a good idea to bring along your hair accessories and your veil if you have already purchased these items. Wearing a plain white top during the trial is recommended, as this will help to give you a greater sense of how the hair and makeup will look.
Once you have decided on your chosen make-up, hair or both, photographs will be taken and products will be noted to make sure that this is re-created for you on your wedding day. These hair and make up images are also a lovely keepsake as part of your wedding day preparations
When booking a make-up trial a £50 booking fee (non-refundable) is required to reserve your wedding date in Dawn’s diary. This deposit will then be deducted from your final invoice.
