Frequently Asked Questions:
How far in advance do i need to book a trial?
I suggest 9-6 months before
Do i need to have my dress and vail before the trial?
It is a good idea to have a dress before the trial, so you know what style you are going for. Vail you don't need to have before the trial.
What happens at the trial and how long does it take? Do i need a trial?
I will come to you and we can discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes, and try out different hairstyles and makeup looks. The trial usually lasts two to three hours. It doesn't matter if you don't know what you want. Thats what a trial is for .It is always a good idea to have a trial, so you know what you like and don't like.
What happens on the Wedding Day?
On your wedding day, I will make sure that the planning goes to schedule so that you can feel completely relaxed and enjoy the lead up to your wedding. I will be by your side to ensure that you are looking and feeling your absolute best at this time. I will organise a timetable and if I require more help on the day I will arrange this at no extra cost.
Will the Hair and Makeup artist need an assistant?
Depending on how large your party is , i would suggest one. But this is after the trial and the hairstyles we know we are doing on the rest of the party. So i can do my timetable. I would never want to be rushing . If i suggest an assistant, it will always be someone the same standard as me and i work with alot . I want to keep your day as organised and stress free as possible.
How do i choose a hair style?
When I first speak to a bride-to-be, it’s not at all uncommon for her to be unclear about the look that she wants. There might be a few different and quite contrasting styles that she has found herself drawn to, and when that’s the case it’s time to start looking at how to select the best wedding hairstyle for you based on the logistics as well as your love for the style.Consider1 Your Dress2 Your height3 Wedding theme and Venue4 Your hair type5. Your everyday style
Why does a Hair and Makeup artist cost so much ?
A Hair and Makeup artist has been qualified and trained to do all types of Makeup and Hair from Tv through Commercials and working with Celebrities.They are used to working under pressure and dealing with people. Your wedding day is the most important day fo your life and you pay for what you get and their skills and organisation.

She’s just brilliant!
Cat styled my hair and did my makeup for my wedding, as well as for my mum, 4 bridesmaids and auntie! She is so so talented and made us all look and feel so special on my big day. I can’t recommend her highly enough! From the trial right up until the wedding morning, she was able to answer all my questions (big and small!) and was so organised and in control, it definitely was one less thing to worry about. I did have some anxiety about a scar on my face being visible in the photographs, but Cat was so brilliant at covering it and she gave me confidence I didn’t know I could have. I really couldn’t have asked for anything more- thank you Cat!!Sent on 08/11/2019

I would highly recommend Catherine to anyone.
As soon as we had booked the wedding I was anxious to find someone to do my hair and make up who I could feel confident with.Sent on 14/06/2016
After reading Catherine's reviews, how amazingly relaxed she made her brides feel. I knew this was the person to go for, and I wasn't disappointed. On the day she made me feel very relaxed and made the whole process enjoyable.
My hair and make up was just as I had envisaged and everyone commented on how beautiful I looked.
I would highly recommend Catherine to anyone.

Excellent job, complete professional
I would recommend Cat Legg to anyone looking for top rate hair and make up for their wedding day. Having such a professional with me on the wedding day, was very reassuring and all the timings made everything run smoothly! I found Cat very easy to deal with and she answers her emails swiftly. The trial was really valuable and her expertise shone through from the moment I met her. A great experience all round!(Wedding in August 2017)Sent on 02/09/2017
