Tips for your make up and hair trials

Here are some things to keep in mind so the appointment is seamless and you leave feeling happy and at peace:

  1. Keep time in mind: If you’d like to have more than one appointment, you’ll need to start booking your trials in advance so you and your stylist have time to think about and make the necessary changes.
  2. Prepare your hair: Hairdressers often prefer to work with hair that hasn’t been washed the same day, so wash and blow dry yours a day or two before to make it as easy as possible to work with.
  3. Pay attention to your brows: They shape your entire face! Book yourself an eyebrow shaping before the trial so they have time to grow into themselves and you can properly see how they’ll look filled in with make up.
  4. Take your veil or hair accessory along: This is essential for your hair trial. You need to know how it’s going to look with your final hairstyle and if it works efficiently with your veil or hair piece to achieve the look you’re dreaming of.
  5. Choose one inspiration photo and bring it with: You and your stylist can get overwhelmed with the amount of inspo photos out there, so just pick your favourite one and bring it with as a reference point.
  6. Bring in a good picture or two of your dress: Your hair and make up stylists will be able to tell what hair and make up looks will best compliment your chosen dress and be able to avoid doing anything that will detract from the style of dress you’ve chosen.
  7. Wear white: Or if you’re wearing cream or ivory, wear that! It’s a great opportunity to see how your hair and make up looks with the colour you’ve chosen for your big day, to make sure there are no clashes or issues.

Make a mental note of these simple tips, and you should fly through your trials without any hiccups!
