Trials

A trial for the bride is required and takes place at Rachel’s studio in Chippenham usually 6 to 8 weeks before the wedding date and is normally booked after securing your date in her diary. However if you preferred a trial sooner or you would like at trial before booking, then that is fine also. At the trial there is time to chat and for Rachel to get to know you, your likes, your dislikes, together you will chat about wedding style and theme, talk about hairstyles, hair type, skin type, what makeup you wear normally etc. So that together you can come up with a style that you feel comfortable and happy with.

Without a trial for the bride Rachel will not accept responsibility, if a chosen style or look does not work on the wedding day or there are circumstances where there is a mismatch in styles, approach, or expectation and a refund will not be offered.
