Can I book a trial on a weekend?
I offer trials on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings at 10am during school term times - I have school age children so am unable to offer trials during school holidays.I am generally booked up with weddings on weekends, but I may be able to offer a Sunday morning trial, during quieter months, if a weekday trial is very difficult for you. Please be sure to book in as early as you can, to avoid disappointment.
How long will the trial take?
I like to allow between 2 and 3 hours for your trial. This is the average time that it takes, but it may be less or more. My main aim is to ensure that you are entirely happy with the look that I create.
What do you need from me for the trial?
I will have a large range of make-up, hair styling products and a mirror with me for your trial. So all I will need from you is a room with good light, a table, chair and plug sockets nearby. If lighting is a problem, I do have a good light that we can use.It's best if your hair is dry and styled in the normal way that you do it. It doesn't need to be freshly washed, but is helpful if the roots are not greasy. Please wear no make-up, if you can.Also, if you have any photos of hair styles and make-up looks that you like, please keep them together for me, so I can get a good idea of the look that you're after.
How can I secure your services for my wedding day?
Please contact me through the Hitched enquiry form, or directly through my website: www.hairandmakeup4u.com and I will send you a booking form. I require a non-refundable deposit of £50 to secure my hair and make-up services for your wedding date.
How long will the hair and make-up take on the wedding day?
Because of my many years experience, I am more than able to create the look that you and your bridesmaids desire, without compromising time on the wedding day.In general, I like to allow an hour and a half for the bride's hair and make-up and approximately one hour for each extra person who requires both hair and make-up.Timings will be carefully worked out after your trial when we have established the style that you require and the number of people in your bridal party.If you are getting married early in the day and have many bridesmaids, I may need to bring a colleague with me to assist. This is of no extra cost to you.

Beautiful Wedding Hair and Make-Up
Amanda was thoughtful and patient during my hair and make-up trial. She spent time trying both hair up and down. On the day itself, Amanda went the extra mile to ensure she was able to make it (beast from the east and storm Emma to contend with!) Her presence on the day was calming and she was professional, kind and helpful at all times. I would highly recommend Amanda.Sent on 04/06/2018

Amanda did my hair and make upon 15 October this year. We did a trial beforehand and Amanda was really professional with suggestions for hair styles and make up etc. I felt confident that on my wedding day may hair and make up would be amazing - and it was! Amanda is not only an amazing artist and hair stylist, but her personality is very calm and reassuring and she helped me to feel confident on my special day. She has tons and tons of make up and equipment and any number of colours or types of false eyelashes for example. She uses excellent brands of make-up and is very experienced. She even had a selection of hair jewellery, which was a godsend as my bridesmaids flowers did not work in her hair and Amanda was able to provide an instant solution. My 8 year old bridesmaid felt pampered and beautiful too. I would recommend Amanda without a doubt and will certainly use her again for extra special occasions and for a make-up lesson.Sent on 04/11/2016

Made me a swan!
Amanda is lovely and her expertise and professional manner dissipated my anxiety about having my make-up and hair done by someone else for the first time. Two friends had asked 'why on earth' I would pay for someone else to prep me for my wedding, but my husband (to be) said it was absolutely right for me to be relaxed on the day. He was so right! Amanda was calm and professional and did a brilliant job. Everyone said I looked radiant and the hair and make-up lasted all day. PLUS I look fantastic in every photo, and I always felt that I was not photogenic! If I was super rich, I would buy Amanda's services for every occasion. She is a superstar.Sent on 04/11/2016
