Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I book a Makeup artist or Hair stylist?

Having a makeup artist or a hairstylist there to pamper you the morning of your wedding is a lovely experience. We believe that as much care and attention should be taken with your beauty and hair as your dress or shoes. It ties the whole outfit together and is the final finishing touch, Bridal style isn’t just about the dress.

Our artists are friendly and will put you at ease. They help make your morning go perfectly whilst you relax and be pampered. Having a professional do your hair and makeup really does make all the difference when it comes to photos, they will make sure your makeup lasts all day and help with shine and other makeup mishaps!

Can I have a trial before confirming my wedding day?

Yes of course!

You can have a trial before confirming, however until the deposit is paid your wedding date will not be held. We pencil in dates for those interested, however nothing is confirmed until the deposit has been paid.

When should I have my trial?

We advise our brides to have their trials anywhere from 7 to 2 months prior to the wedding. It is important that you have selected your dress, this is an important factor in deciding which hair and makeup style would be suitable for you wedding day.

Where will the trial be held?

We have a studio in Reading which clients may come to, however if this isn’t possible we can also come to you.

What happens at a trial?

The artist and the client will discuss all aspects of the wedding, from dress to themes and flowers. Clients usually have a few images with ideas on that they like to show the artist. We do encourage this as it’s a really good starting reference. Then the Artist will work on the look and tweaks are made throughout. If another style is needed to be tried then this is fine. We intend to get it completely right for our clients, and for them to go away from our trials happy and glowing! This is also a good time to try headpieces and/or veils, so bring them along with you.

How long does a trial last?

Usually 2/3 hours, however this may vary from person to person depending on requirements.

Should I wash my hair?

Yes, you can wash your hair the day of trial or wedding day, the only thing we ask is that it is dry and clean. This saves a lot of time on a wedding day morning.

Do you do all hair types?

Yes, we have artists who are able to do all types of hair, including afro and curly hair.

What happens the morning of the wedding?

A schedule will have been drawn up and sent out to the bride (or whoever is in charge!) the week before. Artists arrive with 15 mins to set up and get started. We then work through the timings and get everyone done and looking gorgeous! We will stay until the bride leaves for the ceremony to ensure all last minute touch ups are done.
