Your pre-wedding trial is a great way to try out your ideal hair/makeup looks, your trial also ensures any makeup products we use suit your skin. Trials are held at
Zara's home studio near Stratford upon Avon (CV37 8FA). You are welcome to book your trial anytime, but the usual is 2-6 months before your wedding day.
We have everything needed to style your hair & use our extensive makeup kits, using only the very best cruelty free cosmetic brands. If you have sensitive skin
or eyes & have a preferred brand of your own that you would like us to use that's no problem!
You will need any hair accessories/veils ready for your trial to use with your ideas & images, we then discuss & advise on hairstyles & makeup shades to
suit you best, creating the perfect look for you.
Trial costs are payable by bank transfer before your trial date (Zara will contact you a few days before your trial to arrange payment)
** Please note - If you think your required hairstyle (or anyone in your wedding party!) may need clip in extensions to add volume & length, we can help with decisions regarding which length
& thickness you may need, extra costs will be incurred for the supply & application of clip in hair extensions, prices vary depending on your specific requirements which we will discuss
during your trial **
Having a bridal trial before your wedding day is essential, this is to ensure any products used are compatible for your skin & hairstyles chosen are suited to you,
it isn't always necessary to include bridesmaids/mother of the bride for trials however if anyone from your wedding party does require a trial this will need to be on the same trial day as the bride,
please bear in mind it takes time to create beautiful hair & makeup , time taken depends on hairstyles required, hair length & the number of clients requiring our service, we suggest an
approximate time of at least 1-5 -2 hours per person for both hair & makeup trials.
Having a trial also helps us to estimate timings for your wedding day, we will create a time schedule for your wedding day preparations, along with any photos we take
of your finished look we also make notes of all makeup products used & designed hairstyles in order to re-create hair/makeup looks on your wedding day.
* We create a time schedule/arrival times for your benefit - we always ensure everyone is ready in plenty of time before your ceremony. For this reason it's important
everyone we are styling is available around the time we need them as late arrivals create less time for us to complete everyone's styling.
Please save some photos ready to show us on your trial day of your preferred hairstyles & makeup looks. It's really helpful if you choose images that have a
similar hair colour to you so you'll have a real idea of how your bridal hairstyle will actually look, the same for makeup - please save ideas that reflect your skin tone as this ensures you have the
most realistic look created.
For larger client groups we will ensure there are at least 2 hair/makeup artists available for your trial & for your wedding day, this is to ensure the time taken
to create both hair & makeup looks are completed within a comfortable timeframe for you. All team members are fully qualified, hair/makeup professionals. If your wedding party size/time
limits require the employment of an extra stylist or artist there is an adsiotnalmfee of £50
PLEASE HAVE CLEAN, DRY HAIR (NO MORE THAN DAY OLD) READY FOR US TO STYLE, FOR MAKEUP APPLICATION YOU WILL NEED CLEAN, MAKEUP FREE SKIN.
MOST IMPORTANTLY IT IS OUR AIM TO ENSURE YOU LOOK & FEEL AMAZING FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY, YOUR TRIAL IS ALL ABOUT US ACHIEVING THE PERFECT LOOK FOR YOU!
