Tell me more about Bridal Trials
Getting married is a day you dream of and you may HAVE started planning in your head way before you’re even engaged! One of the things you may have planned in your head or pinned on that Pinterest mood board is what you're going to look like on your big day. when you come to French avenue we can sit down and chat about your vision for your wedding and how you want to look on your day. we will talk About what would suit your hair and if you want to have hair extenSions to add volume or length to achieve your style. if you have any accessories or a veil already, bring them along so we can put everything together to finish the look. I can recommend ideas for hair accessories if you're unsure and I will always have a veil if you still haven’t decided if a veil is for you. at The end of the trial we will discuss timings of the day and how you would like the rest of the bridal party to have their hair. Trials don’t need to be booked at the time of booking your big day. I recommend having your trial a couple of months prior to the wedding And to allow 1.5 hours. Trials are charged on the day of the trial. Sometimes the Mother of the bride or Bridesmaids like to have a trial as well and i would love to get to know them - just let me know if they would like to join when you book your trial.

Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Becky! Not only did she deliver exceptional hair for all of the bridal party, She did it with such a friendly and kind approach and slotted right into the wedding morning. Becky went above and beyond on the wedding morning making sure I ate and drank plenty, making sure I was OK, offering support on setting up where needed, even to helping me into my wedding dress when baby bump suddenly appeared and dress seemed a little tight! Becky Even helped my daughter into her flower girls dress. Honestly she was that missing bridesmaid I never knew I needed! for that alone I'll forever be grateful! Let alone the gorgeous hair that we also got! Thank you so much! The new Mr and Mrs Bennett x
Becky did the hair for my bridal party and I on my wedding day. I couldn't recommend her enough - it was so lovely to have her there on the morning, chatting and keeping us all calm. the hair was incredible, the bridesmaids looked amazing and my Mum was so happy with hers. She even got her scissors out to make sure mine looked perfect - which it did, and it stayed like that the entire day despite it being so hot and us dancing all night! Becky also did mine and my sister's nails a couple of days before the wedding - she is true artist and she easily took the photos and vague ideas we had and created beautiful nails for us both. Thanks again Becky!’
Becky is the most amazing bridal hair stylist. She did my hair for my wedding, and for my bridesmaids, and did an incredible job. She is so kind, thoughtful and calm and made my hair look amazing - even after dancing all night! She is wonderful! "
Becky was amazing from beginning to end! She spent so much time and care at my hair trial making sure I was happy with the look. She was so flexible and I was even able to bring my toddler with me to the appointment! She went above and beyond, finding time to squeeze me into a late evening appointment to have my hair coloured leading up to the day and ordering me extensions which she also coloured to match my hair (they were very reasonably priced and you never would of known I was wearing them) Becky did mine, my Bridesmaids, my Mum and my Mother-in-law's hair for my Wedding day in June. We had an early ceremony at noon so Becky had lots of us to get through but still managed to make us all feel relaxed and not needing to rush. Everyone's hair looked wonderful and stayed looking great throughout the day (which I was amazed about after an energetic Ceilidh in the sunshine!) My straight hair is usually awful at holding a wave, but my hair was still wavy when I woke up the next day - which is a testament to the magic that Becky worked on it! Becky is a very talented hair stylist, I would highly recommend to anyone :)
Becky did wedding hair for me as the bride and 6 bridesmaids. She was always really clear with communication and was prompt with her responses. The trial was in Becky’s gorgeous home studio and she was kind and welcoming. It was clear from the offset she is very experienced with wedding hair and produced a beautiful trial result! She even picked flowers from her own garden to make the look more finished. I got back to her with some very small tweaks and she immediately responded that these would be no problem. On the day she came on time and quickly got on with the bridesmaids hair. She was friendly and chatty which put everyone at ease. She produced stunning end results and I couldn’t have been complimented more! Couldn’t recommend her more highly.
