Weddings can be booked up to a year in advance, and no later than 3 months to ensure your date. However, if you are in a pinch, let me know and I will do my best to accommodate.
Trials are not mandatory nor are they essential. It is solely up to you to decide if you would like a trial run. If you choose to do a trial, it should be booked 4-6 weeks in advance. I recommend booking your trial on a special day, so that you can show off your beautiful look. Many brides will book it on the day of their bridal shower, engagement shoot or bachelorette party.
The bride’s hair should be clean and completely dry (washed the night before) in order to have the hair set properly. If you have an oily scalp, by all means wash your hair the day of if necessary. Please make sure it is completely dry prior to your service.
Please bring your veil and headpiece if you have purchased it. If not, I do have some accessories for you to try on with your style. I recommend bringing in photos of hair ideas for the wedding day.
Ask questions! Don't ever be afraid to ask questions! Some of the questions you may want to ask when searching for the right stylist for your big day- How long have you been a hair stylist? How much experience do you have with bridal hair styling? Updos? Braids? Do you have experience with all ethnic backgrounds?...
Ask to see real photos of the artists previous work. Most hairstylists have Instagram accounts and Facebook Pages so always look there for photos and reviews! Reviews are an excellent way to see how previous brides felt about the services they received and definitely help with making a final decision.
I recommend purchasing clip-in extensions to best achieve your desired look. If you are unsure, that’s ok, I can discuss options with you at your trial and make some recommendations. If you did not opt for a trial, we can still discuss options at any point leading up to the big day.
Yes! I am a freelance hair stylist that strictly specializes in doing onsite services all over the Buffalo, Niagara, Rochester area and beyond. The trial run can also be done in the comfort of the bride’s home, for an additional charge depending on location.
Yes, a non-refundable deposit is required to secure your date. That amount is based on the size of the bridal party and will come off the total owing the day of.
I typically spend a total of a little over an hour on the bride for hair. Bridesmaids will take about 45 minutes each, unless someone has abnormally long or thick hair. I prefer to do the bride last, or second to last so that she is the most fresh and camera ready.
There is a travel fee for all onsite services. This fee covers gas, tolls, drive time and is based on location. Travel fees typically range from $20-$85.
All clients must wear a mask during services as a precaution for everyone’s safety.
In addition, while services are being performed, I ask that only the person in the chair be in the styling area. Everyone else is to respect the social distancing mandate of 6 Please note that service can be refused to anyone who does not wear a mask during services.
