It is not required, but highly recommended. We understand that sometimes scheduling a trial is not feasible, especially for our destination brides. However, doing a trial ensures that the wedding day goes smoothly, and you can relax knowing you will love your hair and makeup look. During the trial you can test out a look and make a few changes until it is perfect. If a trial is not done, we may need to spend extra time on the wedding day making slight adjustments to your hair and/or makeup to get it exactly the way you've envisioned your Bridal Look. This can make the getting ready portion of your day a bit stressful and can even cause everything to run late. Unless your artist has been booked for the All Day Package, they may not be able to stay later than scheduled, as sometimes our artists are booked on multiple weddings on the same day, especially during our busier wedding seasons. About 75% of our brides decide to do a trial before the big day, and 100% of them would tell you that the peace of mind, ease of stress, and keeping everything on schedule for the big day was worth it!
We are an all on-location business, and do not run a salon. We usually come to our clients at their home, hotel, wedding planner's offices, or wedding venue. We do have a couple of options for you if you'll only be coming into town for the day and do not have a location we can come to. Some of our artists have the ability to host clients in their home or studio space, but not all. For our Savannah branch, you can rent the Work Room at Ivory & Beau Bridal Boutique for $12.50 per hour. Or if you have any other friends/vendors with a space we can use, we can do that as well.
We recommend doing your trial about 1-2 months prior to the wedding, once you have all of your hair accessories, jewelry, theme and really narrowed down the hair and makeup look you'd like, and also so that your hair is a similar length and color as the big day. We've found that when brides do their trial too early, many end up booking a second trial closer to the wedding once they have a better idea of exactly how they want to look on the big day. If you would really like to do a trial prior to booking, we can accommodate that, but would recommend scheduling a second trial closer to the wedding.
Each person's unique, natural, hair texture has an effect on how long their hairstyle will hold. If you are aware that your hair does not hold a curl well, please let your hair stylist know so that we can use a few of our tricks to get them to hold longer. Updos typically hold much longer than loose curls. We use Anti-Humidity hair products to help reduce frizz and maintain curls. We have many tricks that we use to prolong the wear of your hairstyle, and many of our clients say that their hairstyle looked amazing through the end of their night; it just depends on how hard you rock the dance floor at the reception! The Airbrush Makeup we use is a 16+ hour wear, transfer and water resistant. Your makeup will stay put all throughout your big day. Typically the only thing that you will need to touch up would be your lip color, due to all of the eating, drinking, and kissing you'll be doing! Our Bridal Makeup applications include a lip color for you to keep for this purpose. Bridesmaids and Family can also purchase a lip color to keep as an add-on option, or you can purchase them for everyone as a Bridesmaids' gift. If you tend to be a heavy crier, a head-banger on the dance floor, would like to change up your hair and/or makeup look for the reception, or your wedding or photos will be outside during a very hot month and you're worried about sweating, we'd recommend booking an All Day Package so that you can have an artist on hand for touch-ups throughout the day.
We recommend that you wash, condition and blow dry your hair the night before the wedding/event. If you have selected a blowout, you should wash and condition your hair right before your appointment, brush it out and wrap it in a towel. It should still be damp when your artist arrives. Some people have heard that dirty hair is best for styling. While it is true that freshly washed hair can sometimes lack enough texture to hold curls well, we bring texturizing products with us to give us the grip and hold we may need. Also, if your hair has not been washed in a couple days, the oil build up actually makes it more difficult to get a curl to hold. A blow out is a separate service, and requires extra time and an extra cost. To add-on a blow-out is an extra $50. Please make sure your entire bridal party arrives with dry hair unless they have pre signed-up/paid for a blow-out.
