What is the difference between a trial and a consultation for wedding make up and wedding hair?
During a consultation, our artist will meet with you in person and discuss the bridal makeup and wedding hair looks you have in mind for your wedding day. Your artist will offer some suggestions and recommendations from his or her professional point of view. You and your artist will work together until the perfect look is achieved.
During a trial session, we will go beyond just talking and actually do the exact bridal makeup and wedding hair look we discussed during consultation. You will have a very accurate idea of the look you have dreamed of and the peace of mind that come the big day; you will look exactly how you had envisioned.
Why do you need a trial session for your bridal hair and wedding make up?
Imagine the day of your wedding, the clock is ticking closer to your ceremony and you want everything to be perfect. Many things are happening all at once and there are time limitations. You may not have the flexibility to make any changes if you are not satisfied with the look of the hair and make up you had chosen earlier during your consultation.
This doesn’t mean that we cannot make you look absolutely gorgeous without a trial session. However, when it comes to hair and makeup, your personal preferences play a big role. We want you to look your best, with perfect confidence that your wedding hair and makeup represents you at your best.
When is the best time for your trial session?
ASAP!!! To avoid disappointment. You can schedule your trial session far in advance if you already have all your wedding accessories ready. Hair accessories, jewellery, veil/duppatta etc.
We recommend that you schedule your trial session with us on the same day as one of your dress fittings. If you can get the whole picture; why not?
Other great opportunities to schedule a trial session are the day of your engagement photo shoot or your bridal shower. You can preview your wedding make up and hair in action and in pictures which will allow you to decide on any changes you wish to make to your look before the big day arrives.
How should you prepare for your trial session?
Working with bridal make up artist and wedding hair stylist can take between 2-3 hours for your trial session. It is helpful to do a little homework before hand to provide your artist with some inspiration photos. These images will most effectively communicate what you want and save a lot of time.
Please bring along all the accessories that you will wear on your neck and above (tiara, veil, duppata, jewellery and other accessories). It is also a great idea to wear a white top that has neckline similar to that of your wedding dress.
Your hair should be clean and completely dry (blow dried not straightened). On the night before, use a gentle exfoliant on your skin and lips. The smoother your skin, the better your make up.
