When are trials available to book?

Hair and/or makeup trials are available to all clients whatever the occasion.

Weddings

  • We do recommend that our SJB brides go for a hair and/or makeup trial prior to the wedding day. The trial is an opportunity to get to know your stylist and gives us a chance to understand the style and overall look you would like to achieve.
  • To help us get a feel of you and your style, we ask that you share with us some images of hairstyles and makeup looks that you like. These can
    be sent by email, whatsapp or a Pinterest link.
  • We usually recommend your trial takes place around 6 -10 weeks in advance of the wedding date. We are happy to offer trials sooner, we just ask that you have chosen your wedding dress in advance of the trial.
  • Bridal hair or makeup trials last around 90 minutes each service. A full hair and makeup trial would last between 2.5 – 3 hours.
  • If your trial goes over 3 hours as you want to try a number of different styles, at our discretion we may charge an additional £30 per hour fee.
  • Second trials are available up on request for an additional fee.
  • Trials for bridesmaids and mothers are available upon request and recommended to be take the same time as the bride.
  • We offer very limited trials on a Friday/Saturday and Sunday particularly during peak season (April- October) as weekends are our busiest times.
  • If we are able to offer you a weekend trial, it will need to take place on an afternoon.
  • Most trials are offered during the weekdays and weekday evenings when we have much more availability.

Special Occasion/Other bookings

  • Trial are available for other bookings and costs given when the services required have been determined.
Where can I have my trial?

SJB Hair and Makeup are a team of mobile hair and makeup artists that usually visits clients at their home or venue. Therefore most trials can take place at your home. If this not possible, please let us know so we can find an alternate address for you.

There are options to visits some artists at their studios but this will need to be confirmed when making your booking.

How do I pay for the trial?

After a successful trial there is a 50% deposit due of the bridal costs to secure everything for you. Payment is due in cash on the day directly to the artist before they leave.

All details regarding your trial will be sent via email prior to the trial date.

What happens on the day?

Prior to the arrival of the SJB Hair and Makeups team arrival on the day of your booking you will have received a confirmation email with all relevant information to confirm you appointment. The below should give you an idea of what to expect on the day.

Weddings

  • On the wedding day, we generally like approx 60 minutes with the bride for hair OR makeup and 1.5 – 2 hours for both hair and makeup service. This will be determined at the trial.
  • We can also help prepare your bridal party on the day of the wedding too. Anyone else who needs to have hair and makeup services will need around 1 hour on the wedding day or 30 minutes for a single hair OR makeup service.
  • We like to get our brides ready around 45-60 mins before they need to leave for the ceremony so you have time to get dressed, have any professional pictures taken as well as final hair/makeup touch ups by the artist, so you feel 100% confident when you leave for your big day.
  • If needed and usually based on your numbers, dates and timings, we can organise an assistant to help get everyone ready for an additional fee.
  • Upon completion of a successful trial, we will prepare all your wedding day timings for the day for hair and/or makeup services and you will receive by email.

Special Occasion/Other booking

  • Special occasion booking for will take around (60mins) hair OR makeup, (90mins – 2 hours) hair and makeup.
  • We ask for a selection of images in advance or on the day we meet to gather a sense of your style.
  • Hair should be washed and dried (unless we have agreed a blowdry) and face makeup free and moisturised.
