Tips for the try-out...



A try-out, or trial, should be relaxed, informal and fun. This is your opportunity to try a few hairstyles and make-up colours to see what you’d like best for your wedding day. Here are a few pointers...

·      Bring along any pictures/photos/magazine articles that you love and even those you really dislike! (It's amazing how knowing what you DON'T like helps to understand what you DO like!)

·         Have your hair in its natural state if you can, otherwise have it as you usually stlye it.

·         Wear your ordinary day make-up so that I can see how you normally look.

·         Bring along any hair accessories you already have and your veil if you have one..

·         Bring a photo of your dress if you have one, I will need to know the basic shape of your dress, neckline and colour.

·         Most brides prefer to come alone, but you are welcome to bring your mum or a bridesmaid, for a second opinion or moral support!


Don't worry if you have none of the above, I have plenty of magazines and of course, the internet, to help us to discuss your ideal look. You can also click on the Pinterest link from my website for some ideas.

I will make notes of every successful look and photographs of the same. These will be used to achieve the same look on your wedding day, even if it's a year later!We will also discuss the timings for your day.

A try-out is best done 1 – 3 months before your wedding and during daylight hours.  This allows us to choose the foundation best suited to your skin type and tone. A try-out typically takes between one and three hours, allowing us to take our time to find the look that suits you best. Usually the try-out will take place at my home or yours, but we can arrange to meet at a place that suits you.

Iconic brows

It's quite amazing what a difference your eyebrow shape makes. Imagine Greta Garbo without those pencil-thin lines, Elizabeth Taylor without those defined, luscious shapes, or Marilyn without the cheeky peaks in her eyebrows!

Your brows can not only define your eyes but also alter your face shape. Here's a link to a video which shows you how to pluck your blows into a flattering shape.

Actually, I think that it's a very good idea to have a make-up artist or beauty therapist to shape them for you first and then you only need to maintain the shape. HD brows are the current eyebrow-shaping system in high demand. This involves tinting, waxing, threading, plucking, and applying make-up to your brows. You can check the HD Brows website for your nearest practitioner.

Happy plucking!
