What happens on the wedding day?

On your wedding day Michelle will arrive at your home or wedding venue in plenty of time. She will have planned your wedding morning in detail incorporating time for you to get dressed and have photographs taken. Michelle only ever does one wedding per day, so she is able to stay with you until you are dressed to make final touch ups and place the veil for you.

Will I need a wedding hair trial?

It is recommended that you have a hair trial prior to your wedding day. This will give you a chance to meet Michelle, discuss your wedding details and work out timings for the wedding day.

A hair trial usually takes 2 -3 hours. In this time Michelle will go through a thorough consultation with you discussing all of your hair likes and dislikes, your dress and the styling of the wedding. At the trial photos will be taken of your hair and detailed notes will be made after the trial to ensure that the style will be recreated for you.

Please note that Michelle works on wedding at the weekends, which means that trials tend to take place during the week, during the day.

What about the rest of the bridal party?

Michelle will style hair for your Bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride/Groom and friends of the bridal party too. Prior notice needs to be given to ensure that there is plenty of time for everyone on the day.

How do I book for my wedding date?

To secure your wedding date Michelle requires a £30 booking fee. This amount will be deducted from your trial costs. After your trial has taken place a further deposit of 50% of the total wedding day balance will be required within one week of your trial to continue to hold your wedding date. This is non-refundable. Final payment is to be made one week before the wedding day.

Can you provide hair extensions?

Michelle carries hair extensions and padding in her kit. They are available to use at your hair trial. Michelle will colour match extensions with your hair at your hair trial. Hair extensions can be purchased or hired. If the hair extensions are hired, they must be returned within one week of the wedding day. Padding will be made for you by Michelle according to your hair requirements. This does not need to be returned.

Can you provide hair accessories?

Samples of hair accessories are available for you to try at your hair trial. It can be difficult to know what will work in your hair until you know what style you will be having. All hair accessories can be purchased for your wedding day. They are handmade and will be made bespoke for you.
