Photos: We ask that you bring inspirational photos of makeup and hair looks to share with us. We recommend that you also bring pictures of your veil, bridal gown, or any other traditional outfits that you will be wearing for the wedding day so we can help you to custom design a perfect look for you. If you have hair accessories, you can also bring it to the trial session so we can help you to incorporate it into the hairstyle to give you a beautiful complete bridal look.

Outfit: Wear a white tank or tube top that has similar neckline to your wedding gown.

Trial session will take 2-3 hours long. During the trial session, we will do a quick consultation and assessment on your skin condition. You will get to try on a full bridal makeup and hairstyles. We will start with makeup application and make small adjustments or try different things to ensure that you love your makeup look before we move on to try the hairstyles. After the trial session we will collect feedbacks from you so we can make all the necessary small adjustment before the big day.

Most of our brides secure our service 9 months out and sometimes up to 1 year in advanced. Then they come back to schedule the trial session 2 to 3 months prior to the wedding day after they pick out their bridal gown and accessories. But there’s no set time on when you can do your trial. If your schedule allows, you can certainly do your trial session a bit sooner as well.
