How long do you allow for each person’s hair and makeup on the wedding day?
Depending on the style I usually allow an hour and half for Bride hair and makeup, and one hour for others in the bridal party's hair and makeup.
There is no time limit during your trial.
Do you charge travel costs?
Travel to anywhere within Essex is included. Areas outside Essex are charged at 40p per mile from the Essex border for the round trip, plus toll charges if necessary.
When should I wash my hair before my trial?
Hair washed the day before your trial can sometimes be easier to work with. However, if you have an oily scalp and would prefer to wash your hair on the morning of your trial and wedding day then this is fine also.
Do I need to pay a deposit and how can payments be made?
A non-refundable deposit of £20 will be required to hold the date of your wedding in my diary up until your trial. This will be taken off your trial cost when you pay for your trial, which can either be on the day in cash or by bank transfer immediately after.
Once you are 100% happy with your trial a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the total wedding day cost is required to finally secure the wedding day in my diary. Again, this can either be paid in cash at the trial on within 2 days after the trial by bank transfer.
Do you hire out hair extensions?
Clip-in hair extensions are increasingly popular as they allow a bride to expand her choice of hairstyles. A set of extensions are available to hire for your wedding day at the following costs:
Hire fee (per set) £20
Refundable deposit (per set) £15
Deposits will be refunded once extensions are returned in good condition. Deposits made by cheque will be cashed and on receipt of the extensions the deposit will be paid back in cash, cheque or bank transfer.

Are lashes and airbrush foundation included in the costs?
Yes. Airbrushing foundation and lashes are included in the costs. Depending on the desired look then either airbrushing or traditional foundation will be used. One set of lashes is included at the trial and on the wedding day. Additional sets of lashes used, after the first set, are charged at £5 extra per person, per set.

"Lisa did a fantastic job on my hair and makeup styling on my wedding day. I received endless comments from our guests on how great the style was. Even though our May wedding turned out to be very windy and rainy, the hair style and makeup still lasted until the end of the night! Would recommend Lisa Alger to everyone!"
