Frequently Asked Questions
WHEN SHOULD I HAVE MY TRIAL RUN?
I generally suggest having your trail run 4-8 weeks prior to your wedding date.
HOW LONG SHOULD I ALLOW FOR MY TRIAL RUN?
I like to allow 2 1/2 hours for a hair and makeup trial or 1 1/2 hour for hair OR makeup trial runs.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TRIAL RUN?
The first half an hour I like to get to know you. Asking what you will be wearing (I love to see pictures of the dress our outfit), looking at inspiration pictures of the look you are looking for and discussing what you are wanting as a final result.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TRIAL/WEDDING?
I ask to please have clean, dry hair to preform services, whether that be shampooing, conditioning and drying the night before or the morning of. Wear a button down or zip up shirt. If you have hair pieces or a veil please bring them to incorporate. Please arrive with a clean, moisturized face. Photos of how you generally wear your makeup would be helpful as well.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN YOU MANAGE ON YOUR OWN?
This all depends on timing for your wedding. I can generally do 4-8 services (hair and makeup are separate services). I am able to obtain an assistant for an additional fee.
CAN YOU STAY FOR THE WEDDING FOR TOUCH UPS?
Yes, there would be a charge of $75 per hour. There will be a price break if it requires the full day/night.

My prices include 60 round trip miles from my studio in Vancouver, Washington. For miles over 60 is $1 per mile. If travel exceeds two hours each way hotel accommodations are required.
