The final wedding balance is then payable 6 weeks before the wedding date.

We’re pleased to accommodate monthly payment options as well.

We cover Worcestershire, West Midlands plus further a field too. Should your wedding not fall into these areas, please enquire to see if we can accommodate your location.

Mileage is calculated 0.45p per business mile from the artist’s home address to the trial location and back to the artist’s home address, and then to the wedding/event location and back to the artist’s home address.

Kat’s team of hair and makeup artists are situated throughout Worcestershire and the West Midlands. Once your booking is confirmed, all travel expenses will remain fixed for the duration of your reservation, unless you decide to change venues or trial locations.

We exclusively accept payments through BACS transfer for your convenience.

Yes it is fine to add any extra people to the booking for hair or makeup, you would just need to contact Kat with the details and she will confirm they have time to provide you with hair or makeup to fit in with your booking. You would then need to make a further deposit payment to secure the extra services payable on your booking.

Once agreed numbers have been confirmed through Kat, should you wish to reduce numbers, full payment will still be due for these members.

Cancellations by the hair or makeup artist due to circumstances including, but not limited to, problems rendering the hair or makeup artist incapable of their obligations, Airbrushed Angels by Kat will endeavour to find a suitable replacement however if this is not possible a full refund will be given by the hair or makeup artist. No further compensation will be offered.

Yes all of us at Airbrushed Angels by Kat have full public liability insurance and we will not operate without it. Kat has also hand selected the best hair and makeup artists in the industry who are all fully experienced to ensure you have the best hair and makeup experience and peace of mind in knowing you have booked a professional.

We usually take bookings up to 3 years in advance so it is never too early to book. As we have a team of hair and makeup artists we can also book last minute weddings and events.

Kat will contact you around 6-3 months before the wedding to arrange the trial for around 6-12 weeks before the wedding to arrange a trial date, as by this point most things will have been decided including dress style and colour schemes so the hair and makeup can be styled accordingly. If you have these things in place you are welcome to have the trial earlier.

We do recommend it but it is not essential, it just gives you peace of mind, to ensure the perfect balance for the photographs and that the wedding party are perfectly happy with the final result so every detail is covered for the wedding/event, so no little stresses to worry about.

It is advisable if you are thinking of having a wedding tan with Airbrushed Angels by Kat or lashes to trial them 1-2 days before the bridal makeup trial so you can see how the makeup will look with them for the wedding day, however if this is not possible don’t worry as the makeup can be colour matched again on the wedding day to blend with the tan.

If you are thinking of changing your hairstyle dramatically in colour or length we would strongly advise having this done first before booking the trial so you can then see how the hair will look on the wedding day as if it changed after the trial the hair stylist cannot guarantee the style will look the same.

We will firstly provide a full consultation. This is where we will go through with you every detail so we can gain a real understanding of exactly what you do and don’t like. Taking into account your personal style and hair or makeup preferences i.e. whether you prefer a soft and subtle look or a bolder more dramatic look. Detailing any colour schemes and themes for the wedding to incorporate into the final look. Feel free to prepare examples of hair or makeup styles to give us some ideas or you are more than welcome to upload inspirational ideas onto our website through your booking.

 

Your artist will note any skin or hair issues you would like to conceal and features you would like to enhance.

Once a style has been decided, we will style the hair or makeup showing you at every stage so you feel comfortable with the chosen look, if necessary we will make any changes to the hair or makeup to ensure you are perfectly happy with the style.

Each of our hair and makeup artists vary in the time it takes for hair and makeup, so please allow 2-3.5 hours for the bridal trial. Bridesmaid/wedding party trials may take a little less time. Should you like to bookmultiple styles/looks please book another trial through Kat.

Once you have booked your trial and Kat has allocated this-the exact timing can be confirmed.

  • You can have makeup on or bare-faced before application it is up to you as the makeup can be taken off if necessary.

  • Please wash and dry your hair the night before the trial, as this will be best for styling the hair.

  • Provide any hair accessories you want us to use on the wedding day.

  • If you would like any hair extensions added please bring these along to the trial, you can discuss with your stylist beforehand where to buy them from.

  • If you would like more involvement in the hair or makeup styling please feel free to show us any hair or makeup ideas you have collected. Instagram, Pinterest and wedding magazines are great sources. Alternatively, if you haven’t seen anything you like, we will suggest styles, which will compliment you perfectly, and together we will achieve a look you’re happy with.

We would come to your location of choice both at trial and on the wedding day.

Every bridal booking needs to be secured with a deposit. This reserves your date with your chosen hair or makeup artist as we cannot guarantee your date will be available if you have the trial beforehand, due to the high number of enquiries.

If however, after your trial you are not entirely happy please contact us within 7 days, to arrange another payable trial or to receive a full refund of your deposit payment. No trial payments are refundable after they have been carried out.

Yes we do offer this service. This is offered within our individual prices and packages on our website, which can include the bride having a full restyle for hair and makeup and touch ups to hair and makeup..It is payable from the time of your ceremony and is based on an hourly rate of £40 per hour Or you have the option of booking for 3 hours from the time of ceremony start.

  • We spend time at the trial getting every detail perfect for you, so on the day the hair and makeup runs smoothly.

  • Your artist will arrive promptly at the time arranged at your chosen location with their full hair or makeup kit.

  • Our team will set up an area for hair or makeup usually we would ask for a location with lots of natural light for applying the makeup if possible and for hair an area that has a plug point for the hair appliances.

  • We would then start applying the hair or makeup and ask that someone is available for hair or makeup every 45-1 hour roughly as that is the usual time it takes per person for hair or makeup.

  • The makeup artist will offer any last minute touch ups to lips etc. to ensure you are all camera ready for the day ahead.

Yes as we have a large hair and makeup team so we can provide more than one hair or makeup artist for your wedding or special event.

Yes when you make the booking, the hair or makeup artist selected will always provide hair or makeup for both wedding day and trial unless they have had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances and a different hair or makeup artist will be provided where possible or a full refund will be given.

If hair and makeup are going to be done at the same time and same location, it does not matter which is done first.

After years of experience in bridal hair and make-up we would recommend the following order: –

  1. Bridesmaid/person that is going to get the bride in to her wedding dress go first, that way once they have had their hair and makeup done they can get themselves ready so they will be free to help the bride in to her dress once her hair and makeup is finished.

  2. It would be advisable for the bride to have their hair and makeup done some where in the middle of the running order. If they were first they might worry about it lasting and if they were last they might feel rushed getting in to their wedding dress.

  3. Mother of the Bride/Groom, younger bridesmaids, flower girls or anyone not involving in dressing the bride to go last as they can easily slip their dresses on.

Your hair and makeup artist will do their best to work in the remaining time, however, it is the bride and bridal parties responsibility to ensure they arrive promptly at the agreed time to ensure all members get hair and makeup. Airbrushed Angels by Kat take no responsibility for any members that do not have full hair and makeup.
