THINGS TO REMEMBER / PREP POINTS
Please wear a button up shirt/wide neck on the day
Wax/tint at least 4 days beforehand
Stay hydrated! Best thing you can do for that fab wedding day glow
If you having a spray tan, please have a trial
If you are wearing a veil/headpiece please bring it along to your trial
Pictures/pintrest/moodbards are a great consultation tool for your trial
Trials will be conducted in salon, Stella & Hutch, 13 Holyrood Ave, Newtown
A trial isn’t always recommended on the day you have a function as it can rush the process
What products do you use??
LOREAL PROFESSIONEL & NAPOLEON PERDIS are my main product lines, but I also have collected a few bits and pieces of my favourites of other brands along the way.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS
Do you just do hair or makeup?? Or do I have to book you for both??
Yes you can book me separately for either Hair OR Makeup OR both!
How far out should I have my trial?? And how long should I allow??
I usually recommend a few months out, but if you are wanting to book very far in advance and you wish to have a trial first, that’s completely fine too.
I usually allow about an hour for a hair OR makeup trial. H&MU roughly 2hrs.
How should I/we prep our hair before the wedding day??
Unless otherwise asked, the best prep is as follows.
The night before, please shampoo your hair twice and lightly condition the ends. It is best not to add any other products, and then fluff dry before bed. I know you will be thinking, gosh I will look like a fluffball, but that fine because I will be there the next day to get you sorted.
Do you come to us??
Yes I am more than happy to come to you in the comfort of your house/hotel etc so you can relax and enjoy the day.
Travel fees do apply out of the geelong cbd area. I service areas all over Geelong and the Surfcoast, Great Ocean Road & Otways, Bellarine, Daylesford, Ballarat & Melbourne. Please inquire for more information on this as I am always happy to travel near or far including interstate and overseas.
When should I colour my hair??
I usually recommend either at the start of the week or the week before as you need a couple of washes for the colour and hair to settle.
Do u do trials on Saturdays??
If you are in desperate need of a Saturday trial, your best bet is through winter as it is the wedding off season, but from September-May I am usually out of the salon booked with weddings on weekends so therefor unavailable.
Can I book you for hair and/or makeup if I have an event to go to??
Of course you can! I can either fit you in at the salon or come to you depending on where I am on the day.
Please book in advance if you have a function and I will try my best to fit you in!
Can I hire you for photoshoots??
Absolutely! I love doing all sorts of photoshoots from Bridal to editorial to lookbook. And everything in between.
I currently have ongoing work with a few Geelong labels and their marketing campaigns.
How far in advance should I book my trial ??
Please be aware that I also work nearly full time in the salon, and I do book up very quickly, so to avoid disappointment, please try to book in as early as possible.
How much time should I allow on the day? How long does it take for hair and makeup ??
I like to allow 45min per service per person (hair or makeup) with a little extra time at the end just incase and for touch ups.
Of course every bridal party is different and I will cater time allowances for each individual party.
As a bride you won’t have to even think about any of the timing on the day, leave it to me to sort it all out so you don’t have to worry about a thing!
Do you travel for bridal parties? Coastal/Country Victoria? Interstate? International?
Yes I have travelled and am more than happy to travel out of the greater Geelong area for a wedding.
Travel costs will depend on each situation, so please inquire for a quote.
