Frequently Asked Questions
Can you do my hair for my formal or special event?
If you have a special event or formal coming up, come and visit me at my home studio in Norwood. Bookings can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your event. I travel for group bookings, group bookings of 4+ can be made at your earliest convenience up to 6 months prior. Special event & formal hair prices range $90pp to $120pp.
How long til I hear back from you?
I endeavour to respond to you within 24-72 hours unless on vacation. I will always reply even when unavailable so I can refer you to my preferred suppliers. If you do not hear back from me, please contact me again as this would indicate that I have not received your enquiry.
Do I need a trial?
I recommend having a trial as this gives me a chance to get to know your hair and discuss any hair regime that you may need to follow to get your hair prepared for your wedding day. It also lets you try out the style and see if it is suitable and if you feel comfortable wearing your hair in that chosen style all day.
Do I need hair extensions?
Clip in hair extensions are such a great option to give you that extra wow factor on the day. They also hold curl better that most people’s natural hair which means longer lasting hairstyles. I have clip-ins that we can try out if necessary during the trial. Usually you will only need extensions for down styles or half up-styles. You can purchase these from.
How do I choose a suitable hairstyle for me and my bridal party?
Look for hair inspiration on my Instagram page or similar accounts and make sure to save them for reference later. Try to choose pictures that have similar hair colour, length and volume. Blondes tend to have a lot more definition than brunettes due to light reflect and tones. If you or your bridesmaids have finer hair then putting it up will be a great option for a longer lasting style (unless using extensions). If your bridesmaids have extensions tell them to bring them in case we need to use them on the day.
How long do you need per person on the day?
I need 30 minutes for short hair and 45 to 1 hour for longer hair and the Bride.
What time do you finish? I finish everyone 1 hour before the bride needs to leave. In the 30 minutes prior to this I will do any final touch ups. The photographer usually comes around this time so I like to be finished and out of their way by the time they arrive as the final hour tends to get very busy. If you wish for me to stay longer you can request this when booking.
How do I prep my hair pre-wedding day?
Updo, half updo, waves shampoo the day before, dry smooth with hairdryer and brush. Blow-dry only shampoo the morning of the wedding. Very oily hair shampoo the morning of the wedding but please have dry for me for any up-styles or waves. Very frizzy or curly hair will benefit from a professional blow-dry the day before (unless going with the natural curl) Very fine/thin hair may need to shampoo the morning of the wedding, ask me first.
How do I shampoo my hair properly in preparation?
*Shampoo your hair twice scrubbing the roots and scalp well for approx 1 minute each time to remove any build up, condition mid-lengths and ends, rinse well.
