Frequently asked questions

 

 

Do you offer consultations prior to booking?

I am happy to meet with you for a coffee a chat as i realise it can be a difficult to decide on a hair and make up artist for your special day. of course if i have to travel for this there will be a charge, if you are local no charge.(Hereford)

When should i book? 

I always say its never too early to book, up to 2 years in advance, i would say the average is 18months, however always ask if your date is available as i am happy to take short notice dates too.

How can I book?

Please get in touch via email  info@hilarys-wedlocks.co.uk. I will then send you a booking form with the details of paying the deposit. when this has been completed please return a signed copy to me.I will then confirm your booking.

Do i need a pre wedding trial?

In my experience, i have found that unless you are incredibly laid back about your hairstyle on the day and really not too fussy thats fine, but you are making a investment in yourself to look like you at your very best on your special day.

Part of the preview trial is about getting to know you, your hair, skin,and what your vision is on your wedding day look, this will give you the confidence to face your public when all eyes are on you! 🙂

Of course  on the down side! with make up and hair there is always a chance of an allergic reaction! this would be better dealt with at the pre wedding trial.

How long does the pre view trial take? and when should i book it?

A good average time is 12 weeks prior to the wedding as by then you will have most things in place,, to early you may change your mind (a womans  prerogative ) however for the lovely brides to be that live abroad etc then we work it where we can.  During the summer its a very busy time for weddings, however i am most flexible on dates during the week.

for hair and make up please allow 3 hours,

I can travel to you although there would be a charge for this service, I mostly do the appointment trials from home as ALL equipment is to hand.

 

What if i need hair extensions ?

As part of the preview trial i am able to offer hair extensions and colour match. although i do not keep these in stock they are available to order. As a qualified hair stylist colourist i can also offer hair colour/foils/ombre/etc.

If it is not possible to visit me for a colour match then i would advise purchasing your extension at your local salon  PLEASE ENSURE THEY ARE REAL HAIR if you want them to be curled.

Wigs

For you ladies that have allopecia or maybe you are going through treatment i am able to offer a wig supply and style service.

 

Make up- does airbrush suit all?

The airbrush make up i use is of the best quality, not all airbrush make up is!and not everyone has had the training to use airbrush. I can confirm i hold a certificate of training in airbase.

if you have any sensitivity to make up you can be reassured that airbase is silicone based and creates a barrier for the make up to sit on your skin, it is also extremely light,although giving you high durability, heat proof and sweat proof.

False Eyelashes

While i am happy to fit lashes there is a extra charge for this due to insurance purposes. i take no responsibility for the use of your lashes or glue should there be a reaction. 

 

Minimum booking

During the busy summer months i have a minimum requirement for bookings,minimum of 4 services these can be mixed hair/makeup

Are there any payment options available?

When booking i require a deposit to hold your date, when your trial takes place a payment is required, and half of the full quote.then one month prior to your wedding date the outstanding balance payment is required. 

payment can be made via vacs, cheque, card payment but only in person, i cannot take payment over the phone.

Do you do destination weddings?

Absolutely yes ! please get in touch for a quote

Do you charge travel?

if you are local to Hereford there is no charge however outside Hereford there is a charge 50p mile

 

Notes

wear a cream or ivory top, to your pre wedding trial.
