Q. How do I book you for my wedding?

A. You can contact me at [email protected] or my Facebook page to check my availability and get a quote. I can only hold your date in my diary once I have received a €50 deposit which can be paid via PayPal or bank transfer. The balance can be paid by bank transfer the week of the wedding or by cash/card on the day.


Q. Do I need a trial?

A. Yes! Not only does it allow you to see what suits you and your hair type, its also a great opportunity for us to meet before the day.


Q. Should I wash my hair on the morning of my wedding?

A. If you can get a few days out of a wash then just wash it the day before. If like me, you'd feel like a minger, then by all means wash it on the morning. Wash it 2-3 times to get rid of any oils on the scalp. And just use minimal conditioner on the ends only. This goes for bridesmaids too. Working on oily hair is a nightmare and can add on extra time on the morning of the wedding.

Q. Should I colour my hair for my wedding?

A. If you have dark hair that is all one colour I would recommend adding some subtle lighter pieces throughout. It just makes the style pop and adds texture. Most Pinterest photos will either be blonde or caramel balayage coloured hair. 


Q. Should I let my hair grow super long for my wedding?

A. No! Long hair is the hardest to work with. Mid length hair is the easiest. It holds a wave/curl better too. Get your hair trimmed regularly in the run up to your wedding and always get layers.


Q. Do I need extensions?

A. I never encourage people to get permanent extensions I love clip in extensions. They add volume and hold waves/curls really well. I send all my brides to Hairspray - the girls there are great at colour matching and advising you on the best type of real hair extensions to buy. I will cut them on the morning of the wedding.
