It may be possible to add extra people at a later date if timings permit but this is not guaranteed.
Some venues only permit brides to start getting ready at times not helpful for times required for hair & makeup services. This can mean starting early at one venue and moving to another venue halfway through a service.

Mileage is charged from zero miles.
Mileage is calculated from the artist’s home address to the trial location and back to the artist’s home address, and then to the wedding day location and back to the artist’s home address.
Mileage is tiered to represent the fuel, time and associated costs needed to accommodate road travel across the Northwest and beyond and across various distances so you are only charged for your specific needs.
0-25 miles is 15p per mile
25-100 miles is 32p per mile
100+ miles is 45p per mile
Mileage is based on the ‘average price of fuel’ as of [Nov 2022] across the North West and will be revisited each year should prices at the pump change dramatically up or down, meaning a fair transparent price at the time of booking.
Once your booking is secured all travel costs will be locked for the duration of your booking unless you change venues or trial locations.
Distances exceeding 70 miles one way on the wedding day itself may include a discussion about providing pre-wedding night accommodation due to the very early start times & long drives required by our artists to ensure they arrive fresh to provide a professional service.
Travel payments timeline
Mileage for your Trials are payable with the Trial payment upto 1 week before the Trial
Mileage for your Wedding day will be due with the Balance payment upto 8 weeks before the wedding.
Trials are carried out at your location of choice, which you will have confirmed on the enquiry form. If you are not local it may be possible to arrange a Trial at one of the artist’s homes subject to availability.
The hair and/or makeup artist will contact you around 16 weeks before the wedding date to arrange your Trial for around 10-8 weeks before the wedding day, this is a good time as you will have any colour schemes, themes and styles of dresses decided so the hair or makeup can be styled accordingly.
If you have a specific date in mind for your Trial, or want a weekend date to fit in with a hen night or dress fitting please do get in contact with your hair and/or makeup artist as soon as you know the date (preferably as soon as you book). The artist(s) will endeavour to book you in for that date, however this cannot be guaranteed.
If you have more than one artist booked for a Trial and would like to book them for the same date, please contact all artists in a group email so they can coordinate their availability as it is not guaranteed they can both do the same date.
If you have to cancel or change the date or time of your Trial please inform your artist(s) as soon as possible. If your Trial is cancelled or changed twice you must pay for the cancelled Trial date plus a new Trial.
The new Trial will not be rebooked without payment in advance. This is because we lose potential bookings to other clients if dates are booked
out and therefore unavailable.
It is recommended for weddings that your bridesmaids, mother of the bride or guests have a Trial to ensure that you and they are happy before the wedding day to give you peace of mind, however it is not compulsory.
At your bridal Trial you will have a full consultation covering skin allergies, skin type and any concerns you have with your hair or skin, what products you currently use, your likes and dislikes including styles you have collected and any preferences. Before any treatment is carried out you and your selected hair or makeup artist will agree on styles of makeup/hair to be trialled before the treatment commences to ensure you are satisfied with the direction. Your artist will stay until you are happy with your final look.
It may be useful to show the makeup artist any makeup products you currently use, as the makeup artist will go through these details as part of the consultation to have an understanding of what you currently wear and feel comfortable in.
For the hair Trial please have ready any hair accessories, veils you wish to wear or hairpieces to be added to the style. Please have any hair extensions pre-cut and styled so they are ready to clip in. Charges apply see [15. Application of Hair Extensions]
In preparation for your Trial you may like to collect any pictures of makeup/hair you like on Pinterest or bridal magazines to show your hair or makeup artist at the Trial. This is optional as your hair or makeup artist will also show you mood boards as part of the consultation to gain an understanding how you envisage your bridal style to be.
Please Note: Artists can only style the hair or makeup based on their professional assessment of each client’s individual circumstances. Styling based on supplied images of models in magazines and social media are a starting point only. Differences in skin tone, age, complexion or hair texture, thickness will determine the viability and creativity of the final look. Images sourced from photoshoots where styles only have to last a few hours are not always suitable for brides. Professional bridal hair & makeup has to remain in place all day and well into the night and will determine any final look.
Please make the makeup artist aware if you are going to have a tan or lash extensions on the day, so they can account for this at the Trial as this will change the look of the makeup. It is always recommended to have the tan applied pre Trial if you are going to have it on the wedding/event day so the foundation can be matched.
It is advised to have your hair Trial after you have had your hair cut and coloured, so the hair can be styled and look the same way at the Trial, as it will be on the wedding day.
At the end of Trial once the chosen look has been created, you will be asked to confirm if you are happy with the final look, If you are unhappy with any aspects of the look please let us know during the Trial so it can be rectified at that point. We will stay as long as it takes to ensure you are happy with the final look.
If after the trial you are not happy you have 7 days to contact Absolutely Flawless to register your concern, cancel your booking and receive your deposit money back. Alternatively you can book another Trial with the same artist or request a Trial with a different artist, both alternatives are payable.
email Joanne at email@example.com
Our artist/stylists will make contact to book your trial at around 16 weeks before your wedding. If we diarise a trial date which is subsequently cancelled by yourself on 2 separate occasions, The 2nd cancelled trial date will be payable in full. Any subsequent trials are payable. In addition, we will not be held responsible if a 3rd attempt cannot be accommodated due to availability.
If your artist/stylist cannot accommodate a new date due to availability
they will offer a telephone consultation. If a telephone consultation cannot
be arranged then we will carry out the service on the wedding day. No compensation will be given if the created look is not as desired due to it
not being trialed beforehand (unless the service is deemed to be sub-standard).
IF NO TRIAL BEFORE WEDDING
We are happy to carry out the hair or makeup service just on the wedding day without a Trial, however we cannot guarantee a ‘specific’ look you may have in mind as a trial has not been carried out. No compensation will be given unless the service is deemed to be substandard.
At the Trial you will be asked if you are happy for a before and after picture to be taken, this may be used on our social media sites and website to show prospective clients the hair or makeup artists work, you are not obligated to agree to this, it is entirely your choice. Pictures may need to be taken to guide the hair or makeup artist as a reference to the look on the day however these will not be used on any social media unless permission is given.
We may ask you to provide the names of any other wedding suppliers connected to your wedding day to help us share their services on our social media channels. Similarly, if agreed, providing your own social media @handles means we can share your wedding morning images should they be used in a post. You are not obliged to provide either.
Please allow at least 1.5 hours for the hair Trial and 1.5 hours for the makeup Trial for the bride, and 1 hour per service for bridesmaid/mothers/others. Please note, if trying multiple styles it can take longer, so please make sure you reserve enough time in your day for any adjustments.
Once we have agreed all the details for the wedding at trial stage our next communication will be 1 week before the wedding to confirm all the final details in case of any last minutes changes to locations or times.
We will then be with you promptly at the agreed time on the wedding day. We will arrive at the time stated on the form unless changes to the start time have been agreed between us.
We will need an area of natural light if possible to do the bridal makeup, if this is not possible we will endeavour to bring our own lighting.
For hair styling we will need plug sockets for appliances.
As a guide we would request from the start time for 1 person to be available for hair or makeup every 45 minutes to ensure we keep to timescales given on the booking form.
We recommend the following as a schedule for hair and makeup:-
The bridal party members getting the bride in to her dress go first so when finished they can get ready and are free to help the bride in to her dress after her hair and makeup.
The bride would have her hair & makeup somewhere in the middle of the running order so she can get into her dress with no last minute rushes.
Anyone who can slip their dresses on easily and not involved in getting the bride ready to go last, this would usually be younger bridesmaids or mothers.
On the wedding day we usually aim to finish 1 hour before the time of the wedding, or 30 minutes if at the wedding venue. If you feel you need more time to get ready or get to the venue please inform us at the time of booking. After initial timings are agreed we cannot guarantee we will be able to amend the finish time due to other commitments.
For a running order for hair or makeup you can have hair or makeup done first as long as after the makeup is done you do not need to wash the hair.
If you need to eat or drink after the makeup is completed a top up will be done at the end of the treatment.
Please confirm to your hair or makeup artist before they leave on the wedding day that you are happy with your hair and makeup so they can make any necessary adjustments. If dissatisfied ‘after’ your artist has left no compensation will be given.
If you have any issues with your hair and makeup booking please feel free to contact your artist by email or Joanne by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If due to unforeseen circumstances another Absolutely Flawless artist carries out the wedding service on the day using trial notes and pictures from your original artist, we will endeavour to replicate the look as close as possible but cannot guarantee an exact match. In these circumstances we will not be held responsible and no compensation will be offered [unless the work is deemed to be sub-standard].
The hair and/or makeup artist reserves the right to refuse service to the client or members of the party for, but not limited to, abusive and threatening behaviour, health and safety concerns related to public health risks.
