Q. Can I book for just hair or just makeup?
A. There are only a handful of hair and makeup teams available in the country which means the demand for us is overwhelming. As a result, we will only accept a booking where our team are required for both hair and makeup. Having the responsibility of both, on your wedding morning, allows us to have complete control over timings and the overall completed look enabling us to deliver our trademark high standards.
Q. Do you do airbrushing?
A. Yes we use Temptu Airpods for foundation, blush and highlighter.
Q. What cosmetics do you use?
A. Temptu Airbrush, Bobbi Brown, Mac, Charlotte Tilbury, Chanel, Dior, Benefit, Tom Ford, Viseart, Urban Decay, Daniel Sandler, Makeup Forever, Illamasquer.
Q. Is a trial really necessary?
A. It is absolutely essential!! We are always flattered when a bride feels they do not need a trial, it reflects their level of confidence in our ability but, there are so many other factors to consider. Will your chosen style work? Will a particular look suit you and meet your expectations? Will the make-up suit your skin and feel comfortable to wear? Will it last all day?
If you live overseas and a trial is not possible then ensure you leave plenty of time on the morning of your wedding for trial and error. We recommend you send a recent photo of both yourself and the style/look you desire so we can advise if necessary and rule out any potential problems before the day.
Q. When should I have my trial?
A. Whilst I’m sure you’re eager to know how you’ll look on your wedding day a trial is not recommended too far ahead of your wedding day. You may want to consider things such as a sun tan (or not) and the length of your hair if you’re on a growth mission. A trial around 4 -6 weeks before your wedding day is recommended.
Q. Where does the trial take place?
A. At our studio premises in the heart of Sheffield’s city centre. The full address can be found on our ‘contact’ page.
Q. What if I don’t like what you do?
A. It’s is our aim to realise your vision for yourself and create this to the best of our ability. Communication is of paramount importance and you must be open with us at the trial and give your honest opinion to help us achieve your expectations. You may cancel a booking without charges up to 3 months in advance of your wedding day so If you are concerned about this then you may wish to book a trial early, or before you commit to a booking altogether. Deposits and trial costs are non refundable. See our T&C’s for more information.
Q. How long does a trial take?
A. Up to 2 hours for the bride and 1 hour per additional person
Q. Can I add to my booking at a later date?
A. The more the merrier!! We will need to ensure there is sufficient time available though so please give as much notice as possible. Squeezing an extra in on the day itself is not possible.
Q. How long will it take on my wedding day?
A. A trial will establish exact times for hair but usually around 45 mins per person.
Q. Is there anything I should do to prepare my hair?
A. It depends on your hair type and desired but generally it’s best to wash your hair the day before and avoid heavy conditioners. It should be thoroughly dry and free from product. Please do not straighten your hair if it needs to be curled or vice versa.
