I am planning on having eyelash extensions for my wedding day what advice would you give regarding having them done with regards to your make-up?

Eyelash extensions should be treated with care when applying make-up, we cannot take responsiblity for any that might come out on your wedding day. Extensions will fall out over time and will only last the life of your natural lash, so if your natural lash falls out so will the extension. We would not work on your lashes as you will need to use a mascara containing no oil. When you have your lashes applied ensure you go to a qualified therapist and ask them for full after care advice and products (oil free mascara) so you can apply them on your wedding day.

My mum isn't sure if she'd like her make-up done on my wedding day, so I haven't added her to my booking form can I add her to the package later?

Usually we are able to add one or two people to the booking at a later stage, if you have one freelancer working with you we would be limited to how many people they can work on within the timescale. Speak to a member of our team to find out if it is possible or talk to your artist at the time of your trial.

What happens if I book you but after my trial I don't want to use you on my wedding day?

In order to book with us you will need to complete a booking form and send to us along with signed T&C's plus a deposit of 30% of the overall package price. Once your trial is completed if you decide not to use our services on your wedding day you will have no further payments to make as the 30% deposit covers your initial trial and the holding of your wedding date.

Why should I not wash my hair on my wedding day?

If you are having an up do on your wedding day we do recommend that you do not wash your hair. When hair is clean and fresh it makes it almost impossible to work with and grips have the potential to slide out throughout the day.
Hair that has been slept on is perfect.

A friend told me I shouldn't have any type of massage on my wedding day?

Listen to your friend she's right!
Any form of massage on a wedding day is a complete NO!

Massage helps increase the flow of oxygen into the blood stream and helps muscles release toxins. It also stimulates the skin and nervous system. Therefore you could have reactions to massage, such as headache, sickness, aching muscles and fatigue.

Importantly make-up applied to the face after massage could appear orange in tone due to the stimulation of the skin.

Treat yourself the week before the big day to avoid any of the above problems arising.

I want to have my legs and underarms waxed when should I do it?

Unless you wax on a regular basis waxing will only keep skin hair free for a few days. Four weeks hair free only happens when you have been having waxing treatments over several months. I would tell brides to start their waxing at least six months before their weddng day.

Please do not have waxing in the week before your wedding.

Should I have facials prior to my wedding?

It is a good idea to start planning your skin care routine several months prior to the big day. Facials are good for everyone and what better reason than to make sure your skin is in tip top condition for your wedding day!

I'd recommend researching some local salons first, chat to the therapists about what they offer as well as what they think would be suitable for your needs.

If you haven't followed a course of facials I would not recomend having one in the week prior to your wedding day. You could end up disturbing the skin and this might not clear before the big day!
