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.
Bring any and all hair accessories/veils you may want to try to help make your decision. 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 blowdried. Be sure to add either mousse or gel before blowdrying. We suggest wearing a button-down shirt to make changing outfits an easier task.
Your appointment will begin with a thorough consultation with a Babydoll Weddings Lead Freelance Stylist. We encourage you to bring any pictures of hair and/or makeup that you are considering for your special day.
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?
Airbrush makeup is makeup that is applied in a fine mist through use of an airbrush machine. We use a silicone based product, which is most like our skin, that helps create even and flawless coverage. This allows for a light-to-full coverage application without feeling like there is a lot of makeup on your face, while giving skin a beautifully natural finished result. It can be applied on anyone, even men. Airbrush makeup is sweat resistant and will last for up to 12 hours.
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.
Do you offer hair accessories?
Yes, we are partnered with Hair Comes the Bride to offer a variety of hair accessory options. You can view samples during your trial and purchase from our affiliate directly. You can also rent or purchase hair extensions from Babydoll Weddings. Please inquire with one of our freelance stylists for further information and details.
What products do the stylists use?
Babydoll Weddings artists and freelance stylists do not restrict themselves to just one product line, but use a wide variety of the best products to complement the individual’s skin type and tone.

We accept Cash, Check, Visa and Mastercard. You are also able to pay online through our online invoicing system. Please note that we can only accept cash or check the day of. If you need to pay by credit card, you will need to pay in advance.
