+ Are trials mandatory?
Yes, trials for brides are mandatory. The trial is your first face-to-face meeting with the artists who are excited to make you look and feel your best. We treat each and every trial very delicately and with respect. From an artists perspective, this is our first chance to demonstrate our professionalism, skill and love for what we do. It gives us the opportunity to determine your hair’s needs, and how to make it look its best. It also shows us how the makeup will set on each individually unique face. The trial is for you is to see the look you've envisioned become a reality. It's also an opportunity for you to build a relationship with the ones spending the morning with you and your bridal party before you walk down that aisle. It is just as important to love your look as much as you trust the artist.
+ Can I use my trial towards my engagement/boudoir photos?
Makeup trials can be used, however hair trials need to be booked separately. The reason for this is that you don’t want the same hair for your wedding as you do for your engagement/boudoir photos so our process in creating your look is different based on the preferred style. We suggest booking the hair and makeup trial together so you can see the whole look. We do offer bridal packages if you book more than just your wedding day services.
+ How long do trials take?
Trials for just hair or just makeup take anywhere from 1-2 hours. Trials for both hair and makeup can take anywhere from 2-4 hours. We ask that you give yourself and us enough time to be completely happy and fall in love with the look we, as a collective have created. We will never rush a trial, as we know and understand the importance of it. This will ensure that a re-trial won't be necessary, saving time and money.
+ Can I get a re-trial?
If you change your mind on your style, a retrial fee will be applied. If you are for any reason unhappy with your artist or the service you were provided we will review each case with the best possible solution.
+ Where are trials held?
We are prepared to come to you for your trial. We are experienced in setting up in any kind of homes and condos. We ask that there is a table, chair, accessible outlets, and proper lighting ;(as close to natural light for makeup). If you are unable to provide a location for us to come to, we can organize an alternative solution.
+ Do all my bridesmaids need to get their hair done by TKB?
Yes, we kindly ask that all bridesmaids along with the bride commit to a hairstyle by TKB. We’d hate for member of your party to look out of place with a style that is not designed to last. Leave the pinning, curling and spraying to us, and well help you achieve a consistent look not only on your big day, but also in your photos.
+ How should I prepare for on-site services on my wedding day?
To ensure that your hair and makeup services flow smoothly, we require the following: • Come with CLEAN and DRY hair. Dry hair that hasn’t been flat ironed works best. • Provide chairs and table near an electrical outlet. • Ample lighting is beneficial for makeup services; natural light works well too. • Wear a button up shirt or robe. • Apply only facial moisturizer to clean skin. • Make sure that all members of your party are present when we arrive.
