There is no minimum service requirement for in-studio bookings.

I do require a minimum of 5 hair services (bride + 4 guests) and a minimum travel fee of $250 for all on-location bookings.

This may be possible! Depending on the timeline and total number of people, an assistant or second stylist may be necessary (additional fee applies). Please submit your inquiry through my Wedding Hair Cost Calculator and we can chat.

I don't have a bridal party, can I still book you?

Yes! In-studio bookings do not require a minimum number of services, making it a great option for bride only, or small groups.

Should I book a trial?

Yes, it is highly recommended. This will give you a chance to preview your bridal style and allow your hairstylist to work with your hair before the big day.

The trial will be scheduled approximately 1-3 months before the wedding date and will take place in-studio.

The cost for the trial is $200 +HST and due at the end of the appointment.

How should I prepare my hair before my trial and wedding day?

Please wash and blow dry your hair smooth at least 24 hours in advance. Special instructions will be emailed to you before your trial. ​

How far will you travel? Are there additional travel fees?

I am not travelling outside of the Ottawa area at this time* and all on-location bookings are subject to a minimum $250 travel fee.

*Destination weddings not included.

Who pays for parking fees?

All parking charges incurred by the hairstylist on the wedding date will be paid by the Bride.

Can I use hair extensions?

Yes! The use of clip-in hair extensions is highly recommended for Brides with thin or fine hair that has trouble holding a curl.

I offer clip-in extension rentals for $95 plus tax to brides and their parties.
