You have a choice of a 60min or 90min trail depending if your wanting to trial 1 or more looks, if just wanting the 1 look for hair is 60mins and also makeup is 60mins if your getting both hair and makeup done together then it is 2 hours. Bring along any ideas or pictures of what you like and for makeup if you can come fresh faced for us that would be great. If you are getting your hair trialed then we would appreciate it if you could wash it the night before. If you have a Veil or any hair pieces you are going to use on the day . If you have a white or ivory top, depending on your dress, I recommend you wear that aswell.
The same rules apply for Hair trials, if you are not satisfied with the end result I will remove all Pins and take it out and will offer a complimentary trial on another day.
