How does a Trial run work?

A lot of times, we get brides asking how the trial run actually works. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your trial run!

1. When should you schedule your trial?
     You can schedule your trial whenever you'd like! I always say, the sooner the better! Why not check one more thing off your long wedding to-do list? We've had brides schedule them over a year in advance! Now that's planning ahead! Usually about 5-6 months out I would recommend doing the trial. However, if your wedding is during the high time, I would recommend doing it about 7 months out. At the trial we take plenty of pictures and notes so it is easy for us to recreate exactly what we did at the trial. This way you can also reserve the date by giving a deposit. Then you are all set for the big day! 

2. Overview of the trial session:
     When we meet for the trial session, we will first sit down to discuss your wedding, venue, theme, dress, and what you are used to wearing on an everyday basis. This gives us a pretty good idea of the whole "look" that you are going for. We also go over any photos of hair and makeup that you have, and will have you pinpoint what you like about each one, and if there is anything you don't like. Your vision will become our vision! We will then do your makeup application and hairstyle! 

3. Do come prepared! 
    It is so extremely helpful that the bride comes prepared. Communication is key when it comes to doing the trial run. In order for it to be a success, the artists and bride needs to be on the same page. A natural look, or smokey eye look can mean different things to different people. This is where the helpful tool of photos comes in handy. You can bring as many photos as you like! You can also pick apart the hair or makeup, and choose some photos for how you like the front of the hair, and another for back. 

4. Come with your hair and face ready to be worked on!
   We ask that you come with your hair clean and dry, and to not be wearing any makeup. If you are wearing makeup, then we will simply remove it before we begin.
