Q:HOW SOON CAN I BOOK YOU FOR MY WEDDING DATE?
A:We take bookings up to two years in advance, for example in 2021, we will take 2021 ,2022 and 2023 bookings. We sometimes have some last-minute spaces available, so its always worth asking no matter how soon your wedding day is.
However, we absolutely hate turning people away but unfortunately we are limited to one wedding per day (in very rare time circumstances we can take on two), which are all on a first come first serve basis, so we strongly advise to avoid disappointment, the earlier the better as most popular dates get booked up around 12 – 18 months in advance.
Q: CAN I HAVE AN INITIAL TRIAL BEFORE BOOKING YOU TO SEE IF YOU ARE RIGHT FOR ME?
A:Of course, you can! We completely understand that some of you maybe unsure whether you want to book our services before having a trial so we offer this service for £50.00 which if you decide to then book us for your wedding day services, that is then deducted from your final balance. However we cannot hold your date for you unless you pay the deposit and send back the booking form. For brides who would like a trial in excess of 6 months or more before their wedding date, we do recommend an initial pre-trial, and then a full trial nearer the time. We also welcome brides to pop in the salon for a welcomed chat which gives you a chance to meet with me and discuss your ideas and peruse my portfolio of bridal work

Q: DO I WASH MY HAIR THE MORNING OF THE TRIAL/WEDDING?
Q: DO YOU OFFER VEGAN MAKEUP?
Q: WHAT BEAUTY TREATMENTS DO YOU RECOMMEND BEFORE I GET MARRIED?
A:If there is one thing that you have done professionally let it be your brows. Even if you visit just once, as a professional therapist I will help you get your brows into a shape, thickness and length that will work best for your face shape, this will play such an important part in helping your bridal makeup look natural.
Also something else that we will great factor to making sure your makeup looks beautiful on your wedding day is getting into a great skin care regime at least 18 weeks before your wedding, cleanse, tone and moisturise, every day. Make sure your removing your makeup thoroughly every night. Exfoliate your skin gently twice a week. You will see a massive difference in your skin in just a couple of weeks, how it looks, how it feels and how your makeup applies.
If you wanted an extra boost to your skin book in for a facial every month this will target any skin concerns, you may have on a deeper basis.
Q: HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN YOU MANAGE ON YOUR OWN?
Q: HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL?
A:I travel anywhere within the UK, and internationally where required. There will be no additional cost for travel within 5 miles of postcode PE15 8NA, an additional charge of 45p a mile for travel above this.
If overnight accommodation is required depending on location, ceremony time and bridal party numbers, an amount of £50,00 will be added to your remaining balance.
Q: WE HAVE DECIDED TO MOVE OUR WEDDING DATE AND WOULD STILL LIKE YOUR SERVICES WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
Q. WHEN DOES A BRIDAL TRIAL USUALLY TAKE PLACE?
Q: HOW LONG SHOULD I ALLOW FOR MY TRIAL?
Q: CAN MY BRIDESMAID AND MUM HAVE A TRIAL?
A:Trials are NOT included in their costs so it’s completely up to them whether or not they would like to pay the extra £25.00 to have one. We recommend trials for people with any specific skin concerns, or those who are anxious about having their makeup done. A lot of mother of brides benefit from having trial if they are not used to wearing makeup.
We don’t believe their trials are completely necessary so if there are certain people in your bridal party who are worried that they won’t be able to have one due to traveling or timing, please tell them not to worry.
If everyone decides to have one all we ask is that this is scheduled for the same day as the bride’s trial as it is more cost effective for the stylist.
Q: I’VE GOT VERY SENSITIVE SKIN CAN YOU STILL DO MY MAKEUP?
Q: CAN YOU WORK WITH HAIR EXTENSION/DO YOU OFFER HAIR EXTENSIONS?
A:We offer clip in hair extensions in the salon which can be brought or hired at an additional cost, they are a great way to ensure thickness and length to your bridal hair style.
If you are purchasing your own please ensure if you are looking to get a set of hair extensions you invest in top quality hair, make sure it is the same colour as your own hair and the hair extensions can be styled with heated tools, as some cheaper versions will not curl!
Please reframe from getting pre curled hair pieces as this makes it extremely hard for us to style them. Also ensure when buying clip in, you get a number of different extension widths on clips, this will allow us to put the extensions exactly where we will need them. Please avoid one large hair piece.
Also please note we cannot cut or colour hair or extensions.
Q: CAN YOU STAY FOR THE SERVICE AND EVENING?
Q: I HAVE A LARGE BRIDAL PARTY DO YOU HAVE ANYONE WHO HELPS YOU?
A:If extra professional makeup artists or hair stylist are needed to assist with the bridal parties, hair or makeup due to time restrictions on a larger bridal party there will be an additional charge of £50.00 for each professional needed. Each artist is thoroughly recommended by me, and held at Be Fabulous high standard of work. (subject to their availability)
Q: WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY BOOKING?
-In the event of the client cancelling a wedding booking before they or their bridal party has had a trial the deposit will not be refunded but the rest of the balance will not need to be paid.
– In the event of the client cancelling a wedding booking after them and their bridal party has had their trials and the rest of the balance has been paid. The only amount that will be refunded is traveling/accommodation or extra assistant costs.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IN THE EVENT THAT YOU ARE NO LONGER ABLE TO DO OUR WEDDING?
– If the booking is directly affected by circumstances beyond the control of the makeup artist, every possible endeavour to rectify such situations will be made, however no compensation will be offered on the makeup artist’s part. The client is strongly advised to take out wedding insurance to cover against such situations.
