Having a hairdresser and make up artist come to your home or chosen venue can make your day a truly relaxing experience. You can sit back and be fully pampered on you special day. Then quite simply when you are ready, you slip into your dress and you're away.
Travel is free within a 5 mile radius of Lochgilphead. I charge a standard £20.00 for up to 30 miles. Anything above that can be quoted on enquiry.
A deposit of £50 will be required within 2 weeks to secure your booking. This is taken off the balance of the wedding on the day. Deposits are non refundable in the event of cancellation.
Wedding trials can be done at my hair and make up studio or at your home or venue in the Mid Argyll area.
depending on thickness and length
Hair & Make Up trials are charged at the same price, I will usually spend 2 hours at your trial perfecting the style you desire.
What happens at the trial?
I would try the style/s you have in mind after discussing your preferences and the various options. Usually I take some pictures for both of our reference.
The trial is very useful in deciding on a style and also saves valuable time on the day itself. At the trial I don't mind if the bride says she doesn't like it, the important thing is we get there in the end. I don’t mind how you have your hair so don’t be afraid to say. I would rather know and as I can’t read minds I do need telling! I can only advise on style, the final decision is the bride's. Most things are possible even if it means having the help of added hair. Trials are done on weekdays as generally at weekends I am busy with weddings and family commitments.
When to have a trial.
When you have the trial is up to the bride. Some like to get it done early so it can be ticked off the list, grow their hair if need be and then get accessories to go with their style. Others prefer to leave it till nearer the day and choose a style to compliment their accessories etc. There's no wrong or right way round.
If Bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride or other guests whose hair I will be doing on the day are not having a trial, feel free to bring photos of them and we can plan their hair too. Do not wash your hair on the day you are having it done, it never goes up as well when it is squeaky clean. 1-2 weeks before the big day, have your colour done.
On the day.
Do not wash your hair on the big day (unless I have asked you to!). Wear a top that can be unbuttoned/unzipped. Sit back, relax and leave the rest to me! If your hair is to be set on rollers, while they are in is the perfect time to have your make up done. I will then do the hair of any other members of the party. Enjoy this special time with the people who you have chosen to help you prepare for one of the biggest days of your life. Don't forget to have something to eat and crack open some bubbly! When this is done I will finish your hair and then all you have to do is slip into your dress and finally I will attach your veil.
Every bride is different and wants their perfect look that will compliment the dress and amplify any particular theme.I have always had a flair for hair up and a real passion for being creative. I love the wedding side of hairdressing and how the bride likes her hair is as important to me as it is to her. I want each bride to look and feel more beautiful than any other day of her life! I am very relaxed and work well under pressure so rest assured your hair is in safe hands on your day.
