WEDDINGS 2022 / 2023
Both Wedding Hair and Makeup practice runs for brides are encouraged to ensure that together we can create your dream wedding hair and perfect your makeup look.
Practice runs are suggested for within 3-6 weeks of your event date however, if you wish to book a trial before you book you can make this appointment via the live online booking form on this website.
These take place in Torbay on the North Shore, Auckland and if it is a 'trial before booking' it must be paid in full to secure a date.
If you can’t see me in person for a practice run due to distance, timing or COVID restrictions we will do consultation via email.
