Trial for the Bride - Services and Fees Descriptions

Hair Trial - $110 (2 to 2.5 hours)

At your Hair Trial, we will explore variations of wedding hair styles - whether you love updos, half-and-half styles, or long flowing looks- that inspire you and make you feel beautiful. As we begin to settle on your perfect hairstyle, this also helps me determine timing needs for the wedding day as well as the price for the finished style. Because I will be moving the hair and trying a number of different affects, you will not leave with the 'finished' style - unless you ask ahead of time, in which case I'd love to show you a completed look. If the trial is to be for a portrait or event, or you feel more comfortable seeing a finished style, just let me know so we can use our time together effectively. I want to show you the wedding hair styles you want to see, and I want you to leave with a beautiful hairstyle you will love that will photograph perfectly. You should feel almost as happy after your Hair Trial as you will on your wedding day!

Makeup Trial - $110 (1 hour)

A trial run before the big day lets us work together to create your perfect wedding day makeup look. Generally, I use airbrush makeup for the foundation of your wedding day makeup because it provides a sheer to complete coverage that will not rub off, slide off, or leave makeup marks on your dress. However, please remember that you and I are working together to find the perfect combination of colors to enhance your natural beauty, so if you would prefer traditional makeup, just ask. I prefer traditional application techniques for the eyes and cheeks because I find using a brush gives a more personalized effect. Your wedding day makeup, like your bridal hairstyle, should reflect your personal style and the mood of your wedding. When you look in the mirror at your makeup trial, I want you to see a beautiful bride looking back at you.
