Previews &
Trials

Yeswe do offer Previews/Trials.  We just want to learn what your goals are: 

1) You want to test out the company and possibly try out several others; this is a Trial.

2) You want preview your makeup and hair to see how it looks before the big day; this is a Preview. 

 

We also have a third & fourth option for brides who are on a strict budget see below.

 

Booking a Trial: 

In this case, we do not reserve your date until after the Trial. This is because we don’t want you to be locked into a contract should you choose to go another direction. In this case, we recommend you book a Trial as soon as possible.  After the Trial, if you decide yes you would like to book with us, that is when we will send your contract to reserve your date. 

 

Booking a Preview:

In this case we would send your quote and contract for the retainer payment - here you have the ability to save your date right away.  The purpose of a Preview is to  provide an in-depth consultation. Here we will assess if you should invest in hair extensions & hair accessories. Determine how you would like your face framing; is it parted to the side, down the middle etc. In the makeup preview, we determine how natural or bold you want your bridal makeup. We will also test out different types of foundation: matt versus dewy, cream vs powder. The preview is booked for up to  2.5 hours.

 

Bride on a Budget: Book a Virtual Phone Consultation 

For a small fee, you can book a virtual phone consultation with Angela. This has became a new industry norm since the pandemic, and a valid alternative. Angela will go over your beauty goals, assess your personality, features, and help you decide on a hairstyle and makeup look that will work best for you.  Be sure to read our blog on soft glam makeup!

Bride on a Budget:  Send us your Inspirational photos & Selfies

The alternative option is emailing us a couple of inspirational photos of hair & makeup looks you desire with a selfie. If we feel your hair would need extensions or you should invest in mink lashes etc., we would let you know via email. A lot of brides choose this option to save them money if they are on a budget. Brides are often surprised to learn that we create a lot of the same looks again and again. Be sure to look over or portfolio - here can grab inspiration from our gallery. 

  

With all of this said if you are an anxious bride we do truly recommend investing in a preview, trial or phone consultation. However, we promise you incredible results either way no matter what option you choose.
