A trial run goes over the complete bridal look: hair and makeup. Photos will be taken during the trial run for both the bride and myself.

A contract is signed between the bride and myself to show agreement on the following details:

  • Achieved look(s)
  • Wedding day details (timeframe of services, location, etc.)
  • Final prices and payment options

Additional Tips for a Successful Trial Run

  • Schedule a trial run between 12 - 2 months prior to the date of service
    • Multiple trial runs can be scheduled if several looks are to be tested out, depending on my availability
  • Bring pictures of styles that interest you
  • Bring any veils, headpieces, jewelry, and accessories to go with the wedding look
  • Wear clothing that is as close as possible to the color of the wedding dress to ensure makeup is correctly matched 
  • To see the longevity of hair and makeup, make sure to take photos during the trial run and at the end of the day to see results, and make note of anything you'd like to change before the wedding day
