Frequently Asked Questions
If you get your hair colored on a regular basis the best time would be about a week before. If you are going to cut or trim your hair, the same time frame would work. It gives the hair time to settle and you won’t have any obvious regrowth. If you are thinking of experimenting and having a change of style or color, we would recommend doing this well ahead of the wedding. Make sure that your new cut will accommodate the bridal style you would like!
There are many styles that can work on short hair and we can email you some pictures of short hair bridal styles. You may think about growing it out a little to accommodate a particular style you are interested in and we would recommend a trial before hand. Short can be fun and elegant.
Wearing something that can easily be removed when the time comes to put your dress on, you don’t want it to disturb your hair or make up. We do recommend washing your hair the night before and letting it air dry with a little mousse or light gel. If you have oily or fine hair please wash it the morning of your wedding without any conditioner and let it air dry without product. When someone in your party is getting a blow dry service please have them come with freshly washed hair.
The time it takes to complete your hair on your wedding day really depends on the style you’re having and of course how many additional members of the wedding party require our services. Generally speaking, bridal makeup application normally takes around 45-60 minutes. Bridal hair design takes about 60 minutes, 45 minutes for each additional adult and 30 minutes each for flower girls and so on. Add up the approximate allotted times and add another 30 minutes for set up and cleanup. We always book a little extra time to ensure we are ahead of the game on your wedding day.
It is your own personal choice and what works best for you-we are happy just to work from a photo. If you feel more comfortable we offer a free consultation at our salon or you can book a trial with us before hand.
Your bridesmaids hair should not out shine yours but at the same time you want it to compliment a number of other things-your hair, your dress and their dresses. If you are having something simple for yourself why not choose a style a little more extravagant for the bridesmaids, on the same hand if your style is very elaborate you wouldn’t want the bridesmaids to be as well-just a simple pleat or chignon can look stunning. It can look nicer if they all have something similar but if this isn’t possible due to length and hair thickness.

Yes, all the time and all kinds: bonded, braided, tape-in and clip-in. We have seen some common mistakes with clip-in extensions though. Don’t try clip-in hair extensions for the first time on your wedding day. Have your regular hairstylist or a friend put them in before your wedding so that you can see what it’s like to have clip-in hair extensions. It will give you a better idea of how they will look and feel for your wedding day. Most extensions are processed remy hair (100% real human hair), which means they are VERY straight for packaging. The straighter they are the harder it is to curl them. It’s advisable that you rinse, wash and or condition them before you use them (read packaging recommendations for care), allowing them to curl easier. If you need us to clip in the extensions, add 20 minutes to the time of appointment and $30 to the cost of the service.
