Bridal Hair and Makeup of Cheshire is predominantly a team of two, consisting of Vicky and Anna, who make up a very experienced wedding hair and makeup team. Trial sessions are carried out at their base in Frodsham and they then travel to Brides all over the North West to provide hair and makeup services for a brides wedding day.
With Vicky and Anna being a hair and makeup team, rather than just one person to work, most wedding bookings require 4-7 ladies for hair and makeup services. The ladies need 15 minutes to set up before starting to work on the morning of your wedding day, then the time needed to complete those services ranges from 3-5 hours depending on the number of services being booked.
Brides needing hair systems might require more time, please advise of this when booking.
The number of services required is dependant on how peak a date you are wanting to book services for.
A peak Saturday often requires 6 adults for hair and makeup for Vicky and Anna to work on your wedding that date.
At times if you are a bride just needing makeup services or just needing hair services, if your booking is within the next few months or on an off peak date that is still available, this is often when a hair or makeup booking can be reserved for you.
Bridal Hair and Makeup of Cheshire is based in Frodsham WA6 and run by Vicky Spencer-Evans.
Owner and makeup artist Vicky, specialises in flawless, high definition airbrush makeup, wedding hair and has 20 years’ experience working in the makeup industry and 12 years in weddings.
Vicky looks after all the admin and running of the business, in peak season Vicky might be slower than usual to reply to emails and messages, if you need a question answering quickly, please call her on 07872121523, Vicky is available most evenings between 6-7.30pm.
Vicky always applies the makeup for every bride who books Bridal Hair and Makeup of Cheshire, Vicky or Anna style every brides hair.
Vickys step sister Anna works on most weddings with Vicky and specialises in bridal hair, in which she has 15 years experience. Vicky also has a team of talented bridal makeup artists and hair stylists to call on to assist her when Anna is on annual leave or your booking might require a 3rd or 4th person working, this will be dependant on the amount of ladies you require hair and makeup for and the time you would like to have everyone ready for, please be aware that extra charges apply when having extra people working as Vicky will have more work that goes along with organising extra people working.
Having a friendly approach while also giving a professional service is incredibly important to them.
All bridal makeup and hair trial sessions are conducted Monday to Thursdays.
Your bridal trial session will be conducted by Vicky or Vicky and Anna, if you are needing to book trials for your bridal party at the same time, other artists who are booked to help on your wedding day might assist.
Trials are held from Vicky's private wooden garden studio in Cheshire, this is based between Chester and Warrington, in a town called Frodsham.
Some brides love our work and will literally show us their dress, accessories, colours, flowers and then taking into consideration the time of year they are getting married, venue, brides hair, face shape and colour, we will then suggest a look.
We also understand that hair and makeup is incredibly personal and some brides will have a set idea of what they are looking for.
We strongly advise you to read the TRIAL INFORMATION FORM that will have been emailed to you along with your booking form, this gives you all the information that you need to come to your trial session and be prepared and to then hopefully get the very best out of your trial session. please remember that we suggest you come for your trial 4 months before your big day for good reason, if you need another trial, at least there is then plenty of time and no stress.
Some hair styles being achievable is dependant on the texture of someones hair, thickness, length and colour can also have a big part to play in enhancing the detail in a style.
Clip in hair extensions can really help at times with achieving your desired hair style, there is information on how we can help with hair extensions in your TRIAL INFORMATION FORM.
Makeup wise, looking through the bridal makeup gallery will give you a good indication of Vickys makeup style, having some idea of what you are wanting before coming to your trial is a good idea, looking after your skin and it being at its best is ideal for your makeup to fit well on your skin, the better someones skin, the better your makeup will look.
We dont want to worry you if you suffer from any skin conditions, we just please advise you to be using a good skincare routine that is best for your skins needs and your skin be in the best condition it can be.
If you are incredibly particular about your makeup and want to look exactly the same to how you apply makeup, please be mindful that a makeup artist is never going to apply your makeup in the exact same way you do it.
In this situation, I would suggest booking to come for a trial before booking your wedding day with us, you can then check first if you are going to be happy not applying your own makeup, in the nicest possible way, most makeup artists would rather you apply your own makeup rather than you trying to give them a lesson on how you apply your makeup, makeup artists can take direction but we all have our own style as we are all artists and our style is unique to us, knowledge of skin, products and techniques are then gained over time and with experience.
