Hair and Makeup Trials Brisbane

Hey there, future brides-to-be! Congratulations on your future nuptials!

Planning a wedding can be as tricky as balancing a bold smokey eye with a bright red lip – it takes precision, focus, and a lot of skill to pull it off successfully.  But fear not, Hollywood Brides is here to take the stress out of getting your locks and makeup on point for the big day.

Just a heads up, if you’re thinking of tying the knot on a Saturday between March and November, those slots tend to vanish quicker than a Bunnings Banger at a sausage sizzle! To make sure you snag a spot, (see what I did there) we suggest securing your date and booking a hair and makeup trial.  This way, we can make sure we nail the look you’re after and leave you feeling like a million bucks on your special day.

Come wedding day, you can kick back knowing we’ve got your hair and makeup game plan locked and loaded.  But hey, if you suddenly decide you want to rock a neon pink mohawk or switch up your makeup vibe, no problemo! Our main mission is to make sure you have a stress-free wedding morning that’s all about you.

Let’s make some magic happen, gorgeous!

Bridal Trials

Time for your pre-wedding trial, the dress rehearsal for your hair and makeup on the big day.  It’s like a test run to see if you can handle the glam without breaking a sweat.  You’ll get to see if your chosen look makes you feel like a Princess or Princess Fiona from Shrek wink, and more importantly make any necessary tweaks so you don’t end up looking like a hot mess at the altar.

During the trial, make sure to wear something that resembles your wedding dress so you can see the full effect.  Bring along any hair accessories or veils to make sure they don’t clash with your chosen hairstyle.  And don’t forget to snap some pics from all angles – let’s make sure your good side is popping, after all.

We’ll also chat about a customised beauty plan to get your skin and hair in tip-top shape before the big day.  We’re talking facials, hair treatments, the whole nine yards.  And if you’re into spray tans, get one for the trial too – we need to make sure you don’t turn into a cheese dorito on your wedding day.

Have photos of hair and makeup looks that you like downloaded on your phone.

Allow at least a minimum of 2 hours for your trial however you will not be allowed to leave until you “love” your look!

  • Trial one look – hair and makeup: $250
  • Trial hair only or make up only: $125

We offer a 100% satisfaction or money back guarantee on every wedding trial.

Remember, beauty is more than skin deep – it’s about feeling confident and fabulous.  So, take your time during the trial to get it just right.  A trial should always help you feel confident and excited in the lead up to your day.  And if you’re not vibing with the end result, speak up! We’ll fix it or remove it and refund your cash faster than you can say “I do.”  Just don’t wait until after the trial to drop the bomb – we’re good, but mind readers we are not.

Hair and Makeup Trial Preparation

How To Prepare For A Trial

Bring EVERYTHING!  If you have hair jewellery, material samples or veils, you may like to bring them with you.  If your wedding dress is white then consider wearing a white top to the trial with a similar neck line to the dress.

Please look at our Website & Social Platforms to see the kind of hair and makeup we do.  That is our vibe so make sure you pick something within that aesthetic.

Hair Prep

Please wash your hair the night before and do not use any heavy leave in conditioners.  If you have very oily hair you can wash it the morning before you come however please ensure that it is completely dry.  For our naturally curly/afro hair beauties please use your usual soothing balms or anti frizz lotion and section each curl with your finger when it is wet.  Don’t use a hard gel.

Bring clip in hair extensions or have permanent ones put in for the trial if you are getting them for the wedding day.

Skin Prep

Please exfoliate, cleanse and moisturise the day of the trial before you leave home.  Dry or dead skin build up means that the foundation will not sit properly on the skin.

If you plan on having a spray tan, then please have a trial spray tan run 48hrs before the trial.   We have seen many spray tan disasters over the years, you need to get this right as well.

Please no crazy full Russian Volume lash extensions as we will custom design a set of false lashes for everyone at the trial. Otherwise light Classic or Classic Hybrid Mixes are ok.  If you would like us to apply false lashes please do not get a lash lift or perm, as it is difficult to apply lashes after these treatments.

Facial, brow waxing or threading & lash or brow tinting or lamination to be done 5 to 7 days out from the wedding trial.  No closer in case you have a breakout, reaction, or product burn.

If any of the bridal party have sensitivities or allergies please let the stylists know.  In extreme cases we would suggest that you provide your own moisturiser, foundation and mascara.

Pricing

Your trial cost is $250 which is to be paid on the day.  If you would like to postpone your trial we require 72hours notice otherwise you will still be required to pay for your trial as we organise our appointments in advance.  Trials can be anywhere from 2 to 3.5hrs depending on the hair and makeup style you choose.  So please allow yourself enough time.

Touch Ups

Our stylists will advise you about the care and maintenance of your hair and makeup for your wedding day.  Some styles will require spraying and pinning.  To preserve your wedding day makeup and to help withstand all the crying and kissing, you will be required to have a powder and lipstick for touch-ups.

We currently have a SPECIAL DEAL – Hollywood Touch Up Kit – we will show you at the trial.  Otherwise bring your own lippy if you have a favourite you want to use.

Contact us today to learn more about our services and to book your trial or phone consultation.

Our stylists also reserve the right to refuse service in the event a client presents with head lice or eggs and no refunds will be given.
