Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of products do you use?

Redken, Kenra Professional Styling Products, Design Me, are just a few of my absolute favorites for upstyling. However, I always try a few new things here and there!

Can you stay the entire day on my wedding day?

I absolutely can. I charge an hourly rate to stay longer for touch-ups or a hair style change. If this interests you, just bring it to my attention when we speak! Most often with my experience in weddings, I do not typically stay passed the bride's finish time. I stand by my hairstyles 150%. The prep work and product usage within my bridal styles ensure longevity and security.

I always recommend bride's to get hair extensions if they are wearing their hair down or somewhat down. I find that extensions act as a "support system" for the rest of the hair.

What is a bridal trial?

A bridal trial is a bride's opportunity to try out any hairstyle of choice. It's your chance to meet me and my chance to get to know you! It's a time to explore what looks best on you - and ultimately, my goal is to have you leave with options and/or a firm idea of how you'll look on wedding day.

What should I bring with me to the trial and how soon should I book one?

I always tell brides to book a trial no later than 8 weeks before wedding day. I personally think 3-6 months before wedding day is ideal. After your trial, I want you to look over the pictures, and truly envision yourself on wedding day. Having a trial on the earlier end allows you time to make changes, purchase any recommended hair accessories, allow your hair to grow if need be, and/or purchase hair extensions.

I love, love, love when brides bring hair accessories (veil, hair pins, brooches, etc.) to their trial - but having those items is not vital for a trial to take place. If a bride knows she wants to wear extensions on wedding day, then having them at the trial is certainly helpful. However, I very often have trials without extensions and have the bride bring them on wedding day if need be.
