frequently asked

questions

What’s the best way to get in touch and what information do you need?

You can reach me via email or by completing my online contact form here. Alternatively, I’m always happy to discuss your wedding plans over the phone or in person.

To proceed with your booking, I’ll need to know which service you require, the date and time you need to be ready by, the location {including postcode and nearest train station}, and how many people require hair/makeup/both.

How do I secure my booking?

To secure your booking and guarantee my services on your chosen date, a deposit of £100 is required. This can be paid via bank transfer or cash. Your deposit will then be deducted from the final amount, which must be paid in full two weeks before your wedding.

Where will my hair and makeup session take place?

As a freelance Hair and Makeup Artist, I’m able to travel anywhere I’m needed, giving you the freedom to experience my luxury services in the comfort of your own home or at your chosen wedding venue.

What about travel and accommodation?

Additional travel expenses are incurred outside post code TW9 4ET and charged at a rate of 50p per mile for a return journey. Distances are calculated using an on-line journey planner and all expenses will be agreed prior to booking. If required, alternative methods of transport other than motor vehicle, such as rail or flight, will be discussed and agreed during the booking process.

All bookings outside of the UK and any that are scheduled to start prior to 8am and are taking place more than 50 miles from my home will incur accommodation expenses. Again, this will be discussed and agreed during the booking process.

Do I need a trial for my wedding hair and makeup?

I always recommend having a trial, so that on the morning of your wedding you can relax and enjoy the experience, knowing exactly what to expect and what the outcome will be. It’s not usually necessary for bridesmaids or mothers of the bride and/or groom to have a trial. For peace of mind, I’m always happy to chat through their requirements in advance.

When should I book my trial?

Your trial can take place whenever you want, but I usually recommend we meet roughly three months before your wedding day.

How long will the trial last?

Usually up to two hours for makeup and a further two hours for hair.  My priority is for you to be completely happy with the outcome, trying different styles and testing ideas until we find a look that’s perfect for you.

If for whatever reason you don’t feel satisfied after your trial (lasting a maximum of 5 hours), you can rebook at the same cost.

Will you require an assistant for my wedding day?

This will depend on the size of the bridal party and the start time of your wedding. If an assistant is required, a flat-rate fee of £90 will be added to the total cost of my services.

Are individual eyelashes included in my price?

Yes, they are.  I love using small clusters of individual eyelashes to create an incredibly natural look. To see just how realistic they are, please browse my portfolio. Can you tell the difference?

What is your policy regarding younger members of the bridal party who require hair and makeup?

Services for members of the bridal party who are up to 12 years old are priced at £20 per head and will only include minimal coverage such as lip-gloss, blusher and shimmery eyeshadow application. If a more complete makeup look is required, the full bridesmaid’s price will apply.

Are you insured?

Yes, I’m covered under public liability insurance for my services and all products.

Do you offer hair extensions?

Yes, hair extensions can be provided if your chosen hairstyle requires them. They can be hired for £70 or purchased at a cost of £120 for 16″ extensions, £140 for 18″ to 20″, and £150 for longer than 20″.

To hire extensions, a £50 deposit must also be paid in advance. This will be refunded upon their safe return within two weeks. They must be in the same condition that you received them as the amount you will be refunded is dependent on the condition in which they are returned.
