Skin and Hair preparation
Drinking lots of water pre-wedding, getting regular hair trims and having a regular facials will all help you look your best. You’re aiming for a great blank canvas to work from that can be enhanced. Don’t forget to have a look through your welcome pack which is packed with lots of helpful advice to guide you. Before the trial, to get a true test of the look it's best to have cleansed, fresh skin with no traces of makeup on. To allow time for the skin to settle this is best done at least one hour before the makeup. Hair will also style better and hold longer if it's not freshly washed. Ideally wash it the night before so the hair is physically clean and left to dry free from products to get the best results.
Have a few inspiration pictures of styles you like
It really helps to have inspiration pictures to look through. Bring a few pictures that you really like and try to find images of people with the same colour hair and features as you. As Bobbi Brown once said “On your wedding day you should look like yourself at your most beautiful” Remember, the goal is to create a look that makes you feel confident, radiant and totally you on your wedding day.
If Possible, Wear the Same Colour and Neckline as Your Dress at the trial.
If you can, try to wear the same colour and neckline as your dress at your bridal hair and makeup trial. If you can't find the exact colour or neckline, try something as close to it as you can. It’s important to keep in mind the shade of your dress and the undertones of your skin. This will ensure that the colour and style you choose complement your natural features and give you that radiant ‘bridal glow’
