Frequently Asked Questions:
When should I have my Trial?
We advise our brides to have their trials anywhere from 7 to 2 months prior to the wedding. It is important that you have selected your dress, this is an important factor in deciding which hair and makeup style would be suitable for you wedding day.
Where is the trial held?
We have a studio in Reading which clients may come to, however if this isn't possible we can also come to you.
What happens at a trial?
The artist and the client will discuss all aspects of the wedding, from dress to themes and flowers. Clients usually have a few images with ideas on that they like to show the artist. We do encourage this as it's a really good starting reference. Then the Artist will work on the look and tweaks are made throughout. If another style is needed to be tried then this is fine. We intend to get it completely right for our clients, and for them to go away from our trials happy and glowing! This is also a good time to try headpieces and/or veils, so bring them along with you.
How do I book?
A 25% deposit is required and our booking form will need to be completed by the bride.
Should I wash my hair?
Yes, you can wash your hair the day of trial or wedding day, the only thing we ask is that it is 100% dry. This saves a lot of time on a wedding day morning.
Do you do all hair types?
Yes, we have artist who are able to do all types of hair, including afro and curly hair.
How long does the Trial last?
Usually 2/3 hours.
What happens on the morning of the wedding?
A schedule will have been drawn up and sent out to the bride (or whoever is in charge!) the week before. Artists arrive with 15 mins to set up and get started.

Marie Rose Glackin · Getting married on 02/11/2020
I am so pleased I chose Something Blue for my wedding make up. Natasha was an absolute pleasure to work with and made me feel totally at ease. She really listened to all my ideas and gave great suggestions. I was so happy with how me, my bridesmaids and my mum looked on the wedding day and everyone commented on our hair and make up. It really was lovely having Natasha there on the morning of my wedding- it just felt like having one of my friends in the room.Sent on 07/09/2019
Everyone looked amazing
Hi Natasha, Just wanted to say a big thank you to you, Kerri and the other girls for last Saturday. You were not only a lovely calming presence on the morning but everyone looked amazing and our hair and makeup stayed in place for the whole day and evening! I wish you could do my makeup every day I was so pleased with it! Jo, Bury Court Barn, July 2016Sent on 26/04/2018
