Terms and Conditions
Securing a wedding date
£50 will be required to secure your wedding date, this is a non-refundable/ non transferable payment that will be deducted from your final balance. By paying that booking payment you are committing to adhere to the following terms and conditions.
Booking payments are made by bank transfer, trial and balance payments can be made by bank transfer or cash. PayPal, credit/debit card and other forms of payment are not accepted.
Trials are to be carried out 6-8 weeks before the wedding and are compulsory for the bride.
All trials are held at my studio in Preston, parking is available either on my drive or on the street.
I ask that you refrain from bringing children to the studio for your trial appointment and due to the space only bring up to two accompanying adults.
Ideally these are held midweek between 10am and 4pm as weekends are extremely limited.
Please allow 2 hours for your bridal trial.
If you do require a Saturday trial please be aware these are limited and booked months in advance and are strictly for the bride only, bridesmaids and mother of the bride/groom must be taken midweek.
The trial price will be taken in full at the time of the trial either by cash or bank transfer.
If you are having a trial WITHOUT securing your date please note that the date may be booked in the time before your trial.
Your trial is the time to perfect your look and time is allowed to make adjustments until you are happy. If you need to reschedule your trial time I will try my upmost to accommodate this, unfor if I am unavailable If If for any reason you decide not to go ahead with the wedding date, the trial is still required to be paid for in full and the payment for securing your date will not be refunded.
Travel and Parking
Travel within 10 mile radius of PR22HT is included, outside that travel will be charged at 50p per mile.
Travel over 1 hour or earlier than 5am set off may incur additional charges for loss of earnings due to travel.
Any parking charges must be paid for by the client.
For destinations over an hours travel or an extremely early start accommodation may need to be provided, the cost for this must be covered by the client.
For International destinations, travel, transfers, accommodation and insurance must be paid for.
Bookings for wedding hair are usually made well in advance of the actual wedding date, late cancellations are almost impossible to re sell and for that reason the following conditions apply.
In the event you need to cancel your wedding the deposit to secure the date will not be refunded, if you have had your trial this also will not be refunded, as the service has already been provided.
If you need to cancel the wedding less than 12 weeks before 50% of the wedding price must still be paid
If you need to cancel the wedding less than 8 weeks before 75% of the wedding price must still be paid
If you need to cancel less than 4 weeks the full amount will still need to be paid.
Cancellations of wedding trials within 48 hours will be charged at £50.
The balance is required to be paid 4 weeks before the wedding, any late payments may result in extra costs.
In the unlikely event that the hairdresser is unable to attend the wedding due to illness a replacement hairdresser will be looked for, however this cannot always be guaranteed. If a replacement is not found then the hairdresser will refund the cost of the wedding booking minus the trial price (if already carried out) and the booking fee.
Changes to bridal bookings
ALL CHANGES NEED TO BE REQUESTED IN THE FORM OF AN EMAIL TO firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changes to the venue or location that hair will take place may result in extra charges being made.
Bride plus 2 is the minimum booking for Friday, Saturday, Sunday and bank holiday weddings.
Any agreement to do groups smaller than the minimum numbers is at my discretion.
Changes made to the number of hair, if there are less people than the minimum or agreed number at time of booking the full price will still be charged.
Adding on extra people/ larger bookings/early ceremony times may require an extra hairdresser and extra charges will apply.
Prices are subject to change.
If you have been given a quote and your deposit to secure the date has been made, then should prices change, your quote will not be affected.
