Minimal touch ups are required while your skin will function normally for a smooth, soft and flawless look.

When having a trial with hair only for your wedding day, you pay for the full styling as it would be on the day.

A few tips on which pricing your hair requirements might come under:
Classical french roll, structured curls up-do, 1940’s, 50’s
are all in the full hair -up pricing range.
Modern soft curls, down to the side, braiding with combination looks, bohemian looks and side up-dos with curls/waves are all within the 1/2 up do price range.
Loose curls with clips, twists, short hair styling and minimal finishing are all in the $40-60.00 price range.

*No trial is necessary for bridesmaids or Mums. However if this is a requirement prices will apply as per on the day.

*Having photos before your ceremony?
If you are having all photos taken on location before your ceremony this may result in wind swept hair if loose styling is requirement. I can provide a ” Touch -up service” for this.

Both services for weddings.

When choosing to have both services for your wedding day a Bridal Combination Package can be discussed. I can provide this for up to 6 people depending on styling required and time of wedding ceremony. Please state when inquiring about available dates, how many people you are wanting hair and make-up for.
An estimate quote can be sent through to you with adjustments made for a confirmed booking.

Important information:**** PLEASE READ****
Due to my schedule in the wedding season, All wedding inquiries for only one person will need to come to the clinic for hair, make-up or both services. I will only travel to your destination for no less than three people (single service) or Two people ( both services)

I look forward to providing beautiful work for your special event or wedding day.
