Frequently Asked Questions

Aka ‘everything you’d possibly want to know when booking hair services for your upcoming wedding’
How far in advance should I book hair services for my wedding?

For weddings and special events during the high season (May – October), booking hair services at least 10-12 months in advance is recommended.

How do I reserve my wedding date?

Step 1: Complete my Wedding Inquiry Form
Step 2: If I’m available, we’ll schedule a complimentary consultation to get to know each other a little bit and go over the wedding details
Step 3: I’ll prepare and send you a personalized quote and contract
Step 4: To secure the booking, a signed contract and $125 deposit is required
Step 5: Once your date is confirmed, you’ll receive a welcome package with more information and next steps

What are your prices?

My standard prices are below:
Bride: $150
Bridal Trial: $100
Additional Guests: $110
Blow Dry (short hair, above shoulders): $75

There is also a minimum service fee for on-site bookings, travel fees, and accessory rental fees. Want to get a better estimate? Check out my wedding hair services calculator!

Do you have a minimum requirement?

I require a minimum of 5 hair services (bride + 4 guests) for all on-location bookings. There may be additional fees for your bridal trial and travel.

I have more than 7 people in my bridal party. Can you provide hair services for many people?

This may be possible! I’m in the process of building a team for the 2021 wedding season (look out world!). Please fill in my Inquiry Form and we can chat.

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

Depending on the wedding date, I may be able to accommodate bride only services in-studio. Please fill in my Wedding Inquiry Form and we can chat.

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 2 months before the wedding date and will take place in-studio at Rebecca Rose Beauty Lounge (981 Wellington Street West, Suite 300, Ottawa, ON).

The cost for the trial is $100.00 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 1 day in advance. Special instructions will be made available in your client portal and emailed to you before your trial. ​

I recommend using Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector as a treatment leading up to the big day. Try using it in tandem with No. 4 Shampoo and No. 5 Conditioner for the ultimate pre-wedding haircare regime.

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

I travel to Kingston, Prince Edward County, Toronto and surrounding areas.
Base travel fees (including mileage and time):
Kingston – $175
PEC – Accommodations for 2 nights (no added travel fee)
Toronto – $400

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 will be offering clip-in extensions rentals for the 2021 season! If this is something you’re interested in, please make a note in the Wedding Inquiry Form and I will be more than happy to assist!
