Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

WEDDINGS

 

How do trials work?

 

A bridal trial is created for the bride to try the looks she has in mind to make sure that there are no surprises on the day of the wedding. The easiest way to ensure I understand your vision is by bringing pictures. Be as open as you can during the trial since your I definitely want to achieve a look which YOU are dreaming about. It is a collaborative process. I will take pictures of the finished makeup and hairstyle for references and write notes including what you like or don’t like so that on the wedding you can just sit back and relax. I only do bridal hair and makeup trials in my studio in Gastown, Vancouver. You can read my tips on bridal trial here.

EYEBROWS

 

What is eyebrow artistry?

 

Eyebrow artistry includes eyebrow shaping, waxing, tweezing, and tinting. The tint colour is always custom.

 

What is eyebrow lift?

 

Eyebrow lift is a technique that helps to achieve a more polished and fuller look. The hairs are placed down to the desired shape to fill in the sparse areas as needed. The effect lasts for 3-4 weeks and can be combined with eyebrow shaping and tinting for the best result. This is not only absolutely safe for your hairs but it actually strengthens hair growth and fulfils them with beneficial components.
