Tips & Advice for Brides to be!
For a Perfect Hair / Makeup Trial
what to bring and how to prepare yourself!
- Bring along pictures of hairstyles and Make up that you like! Also save a couple of pictures of what you don’t like! This will help the artist create the perfect look for you! Clearly mention what you love and what you dislike.
- Pictures of your wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses, bouquets and jewellery you intend to wear, this will give the artists a starting point for creating the perfect look for you!
Prepare your hair!
- wash your hair the night or day before, do 2 shampoos and not too much conditioner, rinse out well!
- No products are to be put in the hair eg. Serums, smoothing creams, argon oil etc.
- Blow-dry your hair as smooth as possible without putting a straightening iron over it.
- Don’t tie up your hair in a messy bun! Leave it out or in a loose pony tail.
Bring along any hair clips / veil fascinator etc. to see how they look in your style!
Do you have enough hair to create your desired hairstyle? If you require extra length or thickness, the best is clip-in Hair Extensions! Ask me for recommendations!
Have your hair freshly coloured 1-2 weeks before your trial. This will dictate your make up tones and will also be easier to work with your hair!
Prepare your Skin!
Clean Skin: Cleanse skin and apply a light moisturiser, no makeup.
Mention any skin allergies or concerns you may have.
Get them waxed or threaded, also your upper lip if needed too! This will make your make-up sit better on your skin!
If you are having a Spray tan for your wedding day it is a good idea to test it out before your make-up trial!
Book Hair and Make-up Trial together
This is a great way to see the complete look put together!
Book your trial for a special event
Have your trial when you have a special event on such as birthday party, hen’s party, a girl’s night out, baby shower. You can wear your complete look out and put it to the test! What to wear? Wear neutral / white top or clothes so you can get an idea how everything will look on the day!
Bring a Friend!
Bring a supportive friend or family member with you!
On Your Wedding Morning!
Have a good Breakfast!
Drink plenty of water, as its going to be a long exciting day!
Get your favourite playlist ready!
It will get you grooving throughout the morning feeling great and having fun! Call the hotel or venue in advance to see if they have an iPod dock or bring your own!
Room to get ready!
The best room to get ready in are big enough for all your bridesmaids, hair and make-up artist, photographers, family members. Access to a power point, table or bench space and a room with lots of natural light!
Have an emergency set!
Pack a lipstick or gloss for touch ups, blotting tissue to remove shine if you tend to have oily skin, breath mints, Panadol, safety pins and tissues!
For your Wedding Makeup
Clean Fresh Face, You can apply a light moisturiser. Any allergies/sensitivities should be brought to our attention prior to the appointment so special arrangements can be made.
Have your lips waxed/threaded and your brows waxed/threaded to avoid any unwanted shadows.
Tan / Wax
Ensure you do any waxing/shaving before your appointment. And also exfoliate your skin leading up to getting your tan!

- Don’t Tie
Don’t tie up your hair in a messy bun! Leave it out or in a loose pony tail.
On the day
Shampoo your hair on the day of your wedding if you are having a blow dry or if your hair gets oily fast.
Wear a buttoned up / zip up or strapless top that is easy to change out of.
When putting your face moisturiser on that morning try to avoid applying it near or into your hairline.

Also to be able to create the perfect style and makeup for you and see how you feel and like it too! We will also discuss your bridesmaid’s looks to establish timings for the day as well. I recommend organising your trial on a day such as your hen’s night or a special event so you can wear it out and see how everything feels!
Do I have to have a trial?
No you don’t have to, it is personal choice, as some people live interstate and is hard to get together before hand! Some brides are happy with my testimonials and portfolio and feel comfortable with no trial!
When should I book a Trial in?
I recommend arranging your trials about 2-3 months before your event / wedding day!
