What should I expect during my trial?
Trials are important not only for you as the bride, but for your stylist as well. It gives your freelance stylist the opportunity to gain knowledge of your hair texture and pliability. This will help them learn what products work best with your hair to ensure they produce your desired look, as well as making sure the style lasts for your special day.
During this one-and-a-half-hour to two-hour appointment, your lead freelance stylist will style your hair and/or apply makeup as they will for the wedding day. You can contact us to schedule your trial at any time. However, we recommend scheduling the trial about 4 to 6 weeks before your wedding day. We also recommend that you schedule your trial run for a day when you have a party or social event to attend later. Due to limited seating please do not bring your wedding party with you unless previously discussed with the bridal liaison.
Bring any and all hair accessories/veils you may want shop the many hair accessories we offer in person to complete your look. Please arrive for your appointment on time and with a clean face with only moisturizer, without SPF (unless otherwise discussed).
On the day of your trial, as well as your wedding day, please come with hair fully blow-dried. Be sure to add either mousse or gel before blow-drying. We suggest wearing a button-down shirt to make changing outfits an easier task. If having your hair blow dried is something you would like on your trial and day of wedding, it can be added to your invoice for an additional charge. Arriving to day of services with wet hair that had not been previously discussed will result in a fine to be collected on site as unplanned services will hinder the agreed upon timeline.
Your appointment will begin with a thorough consultation with a Babydoll Weddings Freelance Stylist. We encourage you to bring any pictures of hair and/or makeup that you are considering for your special day. You can also send them to us here.
When you leave your trial, we recommend you try on your dress or something in similar style/color. If at that point, there are any changes that you would like to see in your hair and/or makeup, please feel free to contact us so that we can update our notes in your file and prepare for those changes.
What is the difference between airbrush and traditional makeup?
Traditional makeup is usually in the form of a liquid or cream and applied with a foundation brush or makeup sponge. You can achieve medium to full coverage with it as well. Traditional makeup can last anywhere from 4 to 6 hours.
