Before your big day arrives we will have communicated over email/ phone it is important that we get on! This is the time we get to know each other My aim is to help you along the planning process and you a comfortable on the day of your wedding knowing that you can relax having your hair styled as we had planned in the pre wedding trial. Pre wedding trials are recommended around 12 weeks from your wedding date however everyone’s circumstances are different so this is just a guide. I have my own little home studio where the trial takes place generally for your hair trial It’s nice if we can style your hair in the morning ( week days) we would need a couple of hours to find your chosen look and then if location is possible to have a dress fitting later in the day for you to see the whole look.
I am happy to offer pre wedding trials for your bridal party but of course this would add extra cost , what I find works well for those unsure of the style they want is to browse my website we can adapt styles to their features and hair length etc.
If you are struggling to grow your hair have you thought to have hair extensions or May be a fake hair piece or half head wefts instead.? I am happy to chat with you to see if this is your best option.
I am able to colour match your hair should you require extensions although I would need to order these in. There are many types available. I can also help with anyone who has hair loss alopecia as I am able to order cut and style real hair wigs.

We couldn’t have bee happier with the results!
Hilary did my hair and make up for my wedding in December along with my two bridesmaids and mum. We couldn’t have been happier with the results! We all felt beautiful and Hilary managed to pick the perfect styles for us. When attending the trials beforehand, she listened carefully to what I wanted as well as encouraging me to go for things I wouldn’t of thought of - and I’m so glad she did! Hilary’s professionalism on the morning of the wedding made the preparations go without a hitch and she was a joy to work with. Would highly recommend to all brides .Sent on 20/06/2018
Hilary is absolutely incredible! My bridesmaids, mum's and my hair was so much more than I could have dreamed. So good I am considering driving two and a half hours for a hair cut... I would recommend Hilary to anyone who wants to feel amazing on their wedding day. All I can say, is thank you.Sent on 27/11/2017
Hilary did the hair and makeup for my wedding on the 9th September, and was absolutely amazing! She did hair and makeup for myself, and hair for my 2 bridesmaids and my mum. She also organised for Sam to do makeup for my bridesmaids and mum (due to the time available on the morning of the wedding). She was able to provide advice on what hairstyles would work, as well as giving me loads of advice at my hair and makeup trial on how to get my hair into better condition for my wedding. Getting ready on the morning of the wedding was completely stress free! My mum and bridesmaids looked stunning, and I was so pleased with how I looked on the day. I would 100% recommend Hilary - thank you so much for all your hard work :)Sent on 27/11/2017
