HAIR AND MAKEUP TRIALS
Trials are held at Katie's home studio at:
97 Robinson Ave. Newburgh NY 12550.
What is a hair and makeup trial?
A hair and makeup trial is a 2 hour appointment with your bridal hair/makeup artists to design your dream wedding look. We usually "try" between 1-2 looks and discuss day-of wedding details.
Do I need to have one?
While we don't require trial appointments we do strongly encourage brides to do them if possible. If you are planning from out of town please ask about doing a phone or skype consultation instead!
When should I do my trial?
The Ideal time to have your trial appointment is within 6 months of your wedding date and always after you have picked out a dress. We suggest doing all hair color changes or drastic cuts before your trial as well.
Can family members or friends schedule a trial?
Of course! Anyone who is interested in trying hair and makeup looks for the big day are welcome to come. Let us know in advance and we can schedule you at the same time.
What should I do with my hair/ skin before appointment?
We ask that you come to your appointment with clean, dry hair (for a hair trial) and a clean moisturized face (for a makeup trial).
What do I wear?
In order to get the best visual of how your hair and makeup will look on the wedding day consider wearing a wide neck white top or a white tank top under a button down shirt you can remove. This will be great for photos!
What Should I Bring with me?
Please bring a couple inspiration photos to share with the artists. We also love to see photos of your wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses and any other inspiration/decor photos for your wedding day. You may bring a veil or any hair accessories you plan on wearing. If undecided, this is something that we will discuss at the appointment and we will be happy to advise you on the best options for your look!
Can Someone Come with Me?
Of course! Family and Friends are welcome to come and keep you company.
Please see your appointment email for parking instructions.
COFFEE & LUNCH
If you are looking to grab a coffee, brunch or lunch before or after your appointment check out Shelter House Cafe located in Downing Park across the street from Katie’s house. The food is fabulous and the park is a historic gem of Newburgh.
