This will be added to your final balance if notified prior to the day, or will be invoiced retrospectively if time is added on on the day without warning.

Veil Fitting

  • If a stylist is required to wait more than 30 mins beyond their allotted working time (45 mins per head / 1 hour for the bride/ + 15 mins set and 15 mins pack up), to fit a veil then a waiting charge of £20 per 30 mins will be added to your contract. This will be added to your final balance if notified prior to the day, or will be invoiced retrospectively if time is added on on the day without warning. We recommend you discuss when your veil will be applied with your stylist on your trial to avoid any unexpected waiting charges. 

Additional work time for more complex hair styles

  • Hollywood waves and some other more complex hair styles require additional time, for setting hair, and or fitting and prepping extensions. If the style you desire requires more than 1 hour of styling time then £25 per 30 mins of additional work time will be added to your bill. This will be discussed with you after your trial, at the point we know that to create the desired style, more time is needed. Please note Hollywood waves cannot be requested by bridesmaids / guests unless pre-agreed with your stylist. 

Early start charges

  • If you require your hair and make-up team to arrive before 7am then a £20 per hour fee will be added. I.e a 4am arrival would incur a £60 early start fee.

Cancelling in the case of a global pandemic

  • If you are forced to cancel (not postpone) your wedding / event due to a global pandemic, and the date of your wedding / event falls during a government lockdown period, meaning legally your wedding / event cannot go ahead, then all payments made beyond the booking fee and trial are refundable. Trial payments and booking fees remain non-refundable due to work being undertaken equating to these amounts.

The client is strongly advised to take out wedding insurance to cover against such situations.

  • If you need to postpone your wedding / event more than 12 months from your original date then inflation charges / a new booking fee will apply.
