STEP ONE - Hair Trial Details
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR PREVIEW
Please come with your hair clean and air dried. If you Have fine hair or hair that has trouble holding a curl, please do not condition.
If you would like a blowout on the wedding day, I will shampoo your hair in the salon. If we're doing an on-location trial, please have your hair freshly washed and don't condition.
If you need a clip in extension application, bring them with you.
If you're interested in hair extensions but do not have them. you need to be color matched. Please set up a consultation prior to your appointment so we can order the hair and do your trial once the hair is in.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR PREVIEW
Appointments are 2-hours long, they don't always take that long but this gives us time to really dial in your wedding day look.
Multiple styles? If you're in between and updo vs. down, we will always start with the down look and transition into the updo. This will maximize your appointment time. There are times when 2 separate trials are needed and will be discussed during your trial. You can always send your inspiration to me and I can give you an idea if 2 trials are a good idea for you.
WHAT TO BRING TO YOUR PREVIEW
Hair accessories you may want to wear
Veil if you have it
Hair extensions if you're planning on wearing you them
Inspiration photos (front & Back). Try to find 2-3 photos also, similar hair color to yours
HOLDING YOUR WEDDING DATE
Once a trial is scheduled, I will kindly reserve your wedding date with a soft hold. This hold will remain in place until 3 days after your trial, allowing you ample time to determine if we are the right match for your special day. After this period, if no further arrangements have been made, the date will become available to other brides who may be interested.
I understand the significance of choosing the perfect vendor for your wedding, and I want to ensure that you have the opportunity to make an informed decision. Please feel free to take your time and carefully consider our trial experience before finalizing any commitments.
Should you have any questions or require additional information during this evaluation period, please do not hesitate to reach out. I am here to assist you and provide any necessary support.
Thank you for considering my services, and I look forward to the possibility of being a part of your special day.
All Trials are held at Cristophe Salon in Fashion Island, Please see the map for parking details
We will review your bridal look and give me any feedback you may have and once you're happy with your hair and excited to proceed, I'll promptly send over your contract for review.
Once you've signed it, I'll provide you with an invoice that breaks down your retainer fee to secure your wedding date.
Please note that your date will only be reserved once this important step is completed.
Securing Your Wedding date
Creating Your Wedding Day Schedule
Please fill out the wedding details form by clicking the Event Details button so that I can create a timeline for your wedding day.
Below you’ll find a beauty services prep guide. Once you receive your wedding day timeline, I recommend sending both the timeline & guide to your bridal party and anyone that will be receiving services that day.
The goal of this timeline is to make sure all of your beauty services run on time and allow you to enjoy the morning stress free and ready to say "I Do!"
Your Wedding Day Prep Guide
The artist will arrive 15 minutes before the first appointment to set up.
Please have a designated area for the artist that has an outlet and natural light available.
We will have chairs and a table so will need a decent amount of space to work in.
FOR MAKEUP SERVICES:
Please come with a clean face (no lotions or creams. Your artist will prep your skin unless otherwise discussed)
Please remove eye makeup left over from the night before (that includes pesky mascara). Having to remove this may cut into your application time.
***FOR HAIR SERVICES:***
Please come with clean dry hair
(or at max 1 day old depending on how oily it gets).
Appointments do not include time to dry hair for brides or bridal party, nor does it include clip-in installation for the bridal party.
If you would like to add these services please let me know as soon as possible so I can make the appropriate changes to the wedding day schedule.
PHOTO INSPIRATION TIP:
I Recommend everyone has at least 2 inspirations photos, front and back.
It’s very common to have a photo inspiration of makeup or hair you like. One great tip is to find inspiration of makeup or hair styles on subjects with similar features as you (for example if you are blonde hair/blue eyes, avoid finding looks of brown eyes/brunette as your inspiration.)
If you have any specific request when it comes to makeup or hair services that haven’t been discussed, be sure to chat with your artist or hairstylist as soon as they arrive to the bridal suite.
If you feel inclined to add gratuity, we accept cash, zelle and Venmo.
