    Dang that is alot!

    My stylist charged only $30 and when you booked this went into the cost for the day of.

    Even though its alot, I think hair/make-up is one of the most important things to be sure about before the day of the wedding. So if I were you, I would do the trial 🙂

    I booked with a salon because it was free to hold the appointment. I then scheduled a trial. The trial was full cost. I was not very impressed. I decided to have a second trial with another MA (based on a referral) and I LOVE her work. I had to pay a small fee for the trial but it was worth it. I also was able to see some pics of previous clients. I booked her and cancelled the previous booking.

    I say all that to say definitely do a second trial or at least see a portfolio.

    I’ve booked based on reviews and recommendations. Will do the trial run closer to the wedding.

    for those of you who booked before your trial, how much was your deposit? I wonder if that affected whether people did their trials before or after booking…
