Frequently Asked Questions

 

Do I need to have my hair washed for an upstyle?

If you are coming in for an upstyle we recommend its best to wash & blow dry your hair the night before your appointment. You should give it 2 shampoo's & a small amount of conditioner only on the ends of the hair, there is no need to style or straighten it just make sure it's fully dry.

 

 

What should I bring when coming for a bridal trial?

When coming for a trial for your wedding, images of hair styles & make up are great to have as a starting point as to what kind of style you prefer. Also a picture of your dress would be great if you have it to help decide on what works best. If you have any piece to go in the hair or a veil these could also be taken along. A white top is a good idea as wearing some strong colours can influence how your make up might look

 

 

What do I need to do to get ready for a spray tan?

To start preparing your skin for a spray tan its best to exfoliate & moisturise well for a week or two beforehand but not on the day of your tan. Wear loose clothing & flip flops if you have them if not something loose fitting for your feet. Don't wear any deodrant on the day as the skin will stain.

 

 

Will I wash my hair before having a colour?

Your hair should be washed a day or two before having a colour done, don't wash it on the day of having your colour because this may cause your scalp to become sensitive to the colour.
