How to Prepare for your Hair and Makeup Booking (or wedding day!!)

  • Wear a top that you can take off easily without pulling it over your head! We don't want to smudge makeup or pull out hair!

  • Have a lipstick/gloss to touch up with during the day after I leave.

  • If I am coming to you, please provide a large space for me/my team to set up on. A dining room table or bench works great! Somewhere with lots of natural lighting. I will also need access to a power point close by if you are having hair done as well.

  • A bar stool/taller chair is preferred for makeup application

  • A normal chair is fine for hair, if you have one with a lower back, that will be perfect!

Hair

  • Please wash your hair the day before your booking so it is clean and dry for me. Please do not put any product in your hair.

  • If you have frizzy/curly hair you can straighten it or have it professionally blow dried straight at a hairdressers.

  • Please do not have wet hair when I/we arrive. If you do, you may be charged extra for a blow dry as it adds on a lot of extra time.

  • If you are getting your hair cut and/or coloured before the wedding, please do so at least a few days before the wedding. Freshly coloured and cut hair does not style as well.

  • If you want some lose bit/curls to frame your face, ask your hairdresser to cut the front bits of your hair to the correct length. If they are too long, they look out of place.


Makeup

  • Ensure your face is clean and makeup free before your appointment.

  • You can do your normal skin care routine in the morning before I arrive (be cautious of SPF as it can cause flashback in flash photography and will make your face look white).

  • Please exfoliate and moisturise the night before so your skin is free of all dead skin cells - this will allow the makeup to sit on your skin a lot nicer

  • You can get regular facial leading up to your wedding if you'd like. I recommend starting around 6 months before though.
