Do I need a trial?
It is an optional service but highly recommended. The Hair trial is for you to have a sneak peek on seeing how the style that you once dreamed of shapes your body. It is also done for you to test whether or not you feel comfortable wearing it for the day. The main goal for this is so that there will be no surprises on the big wedding day
When to book the trial: Trials typically take place anywhere from 3-5 months prior to the wedding date.
Before your trial: Lot of research is always helpful. Try to look up as much pictures you can and gather them. Also try a few hairstyles yourself to see what you feel most comfortable in it. Ask some questions like: Do I prefer side part or the middle? What kind of hair type do I have? Do I want my hair all down? Or an updo? Do I want clean look or messy braids? and put considerations on how the weather will look like on your wedding day as well. Humidity plays big role on the hair. If you are getting married on humid day in August, we need to find more ways to secure your style.
