How far in advance should I book hair services for my special event? For weddings and special events during high season (May - October), booking at least 8-10 months in advance is recommended.
How do I reserve my wedding date? Call me old fashioned, but I really like meeting my clients (in real life) before we secure the date, so here's what I like to do:
1) We meet for a coffee and get to know each other a little bit 2) While we're there, we'll go over the details of your wedding (the dress, the venue, the prep location etc.) 3) Sign the agreement 4) Pay the deposit
*Please note an $80 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve services. This is payable on the date the agreement is signed.
How should I prepare my hair before my event? Please wash and blow-dry your hair at least 1 day before the event. This will ensure there is absolutely no moisture in the hair allowing for the longest lasting styles (and no frizz, yay!) I will send a set of guidelines approximately 1 week before the trial.
*Please be conscious of using any heat (other than a blow dryer) on your hair before the event. Trying to curl hair that has been flat ironed is difficult and causes curls to loosen quite quickly.
Should I book a trial? It is highly recommended for bridal updos, but ultimately the decision is yours. If you decide to have a trial updo done, it is encouraged to book approximately 1-3 months before the event date.
How long does the service take? Each hairstyle takes approximately 1 hour to complete. Depending on the number of people requiring hair services, it's best to budget for 4-6 hours.
Is there a minimum or maximum number of people who can have their hair done? Minimum: 3 people Maximum: 6 people (including the bride)
Do you offer make-up services? No, I only specialize in hair, but I have some amazing recommendations for mobile make-up artists.
Where are you located? The blow dry + styling bar is located inside of Rebecca Rose Beauty (981 Wellington Street West, Suite 300, Ottawa). Most of the weddings I service are on-location. Please see below for travel guidelines.
How far will you travel? A 30 minute travel time (or 20kms) outside of the downtown core of Ottawa is included in my prices. Locations outside of this radius are possible and will incur an additional travel fee.
What payment methods are accepted? Cash, debit, and credit are all accepted for the deposit and final payment. The final invoice will be sent to the bride and is due 1 week before the wedding date.
