FAQ's
Still not sure.......here’s some frequently asked questions, answered! If you don’t see the question you want here then please give me a call or send me an email
Send me an email or give me a call for a chat!

We can check that I am available for your date first and then discuss locations, the number in your party and the services you are after. I will then give you a estimate based on what we have discussed and if you would like to book me you will need to pay deposit of 50% of this estimate to secure your wedding date. Please note that this verbal quote is an estimation of the cost and a contract of the full costs, including trials and travel, will be sent to you before the trial.

Payment of the remaining balance (minus the deposit) must be paid in full by cash or cheque on the trial date.
We can then arrange a convenient date and location to meet up for your trial. I am happy to visit you in your home or at a location convenient for you.

After the trial I will then send you copies of any photos taken on the trial and I will also include your personal plan for the day and some top tips to ensure your big day runs smoothly!
Payment can be made by bank transfer, cash or cheque (payable to ‘Natasha Forster’)– sorry I don’t accept credit cards.
I would definitely recommend a trial as it gives us a chance to work through some ideas together and for me to learn about your personal style and the look you would like to achieve for your wedding. It also means you will feel more relaxed on the morning of the big day as you will know exactly what you are going to look like!
You can have the trial whenever you would like, but I would reccommend that you ensure you have had it by at least 4 weeks before your wedding. That way if you change your mind or decide you want to try another style we still have time to do further trials (additional cost) until you are completely happy with the style.
Before the trial it would be very useful if you could collect pictures from magazines or the internet of styles that you like and don’t like. This will help me to build up a picture of what it is that you want for your big day.

If you have chosen to wear a veil/tiara/hair accessories then you should bring them along to your trial so we can work them into your hairstyle. On the day I will also show your bridesmaid/mother what they need to do to take the veil off later in the day.

If you still haven’t decided on veil/tiara/hair accessories then don’t panic! I keep a veil/tiara handy so you can practise what they look like and I also have a number of hair accessories and I am also able to help give you ideas on what looks good with the style you have chosen. At an additional cost I am happy to provide these for you and your party for the day.

Once a style that you are happy with has been achieved I will take photographs of the style and these will be emailed to you.

A tip for your trial is to wear a collar-less top or a top that is similar style to your wedding dress e.g. strapless as this will give you a good idea of what the hair will look like on the day. Better still.....if it is convenient you could try to book a dress fitting for after the trial – then you will be able to see the whole look!
If you change your mind and want to try a different style then I am happy to arrange another trial or as many trials as you wish to make you feel comfortable! (see prices)

If all or part of the bridal party cancel my services the deposit is non-refundable.
I will work with you before the wedding to plan the day and the timings required to complete the wedding party’s hair. In my experience the wedding morning is a hectic time and so I ensure that I take into consideration all aspects of the wedding morning such as breakfast, ‘getting ready’ photos and time to relax with your family and friends. I will email and post a full plan of the timings of the day to you so that you know you will be ready by an agreed time and I always include an extra half hour for those last minute panics!!

On the day itself I will arrive in the morning at the agreed time. Depending on the size of your party and the time of your wedding this often means a very early start! If you are getting ready at a hotel please ensure that you will have access to the room as most hotels operate a check–in policy of 2pm and we will need a room to get prepared in from at least 8am.

I will bring with me all of my own equipment, pins, combs and sprays. I need you to provide me with an area that has a chair, mirror you can sit in front of and access to a powerpoint (I will bring an extension lead). You then just need to sit back and enjoy being pampered on your big day
Most hairdressers say that hair should be washed the day before but in my experience (and for my own wedding day) I know that most brides cannot stand the thought of spending their big day with hair that hasn’t been washed!! I advise my brides to wash their hair on the morning of the wedding with just a small amount of shampoo and no conditioner.

You should then dry your hair off thoroughly with a hairdryer but do not use any products or equipment e.g. straighteners. I will always set your hair on heated rollers for both straight and curly styles as this creates a solid foundation to base the style on and gives you hair lots of body. The same will apply to all bridesmaids though if the bridesmaids/Mother-of-bride are having a blow dry then they can wash their hair as normal.

Of course if you are happy to wash your hair the night before then please do so and follow the same guidelines as above.
Tiara’s?? Veils?? Sparkles in the hair? Pearls? Diamante Clips?

I have a number of accessories that I will bring with me to the trial so you can see various options available. I am happy to provide these at an additional cost for you and your wedding party.
I am based in Cambridge but happy to cover all surrounding areas including Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Bedfordshire and Herefordshire.
If you decided to cancel my services for all or part of the bridal party the deposit is non-refundable.
To secure the date of your wedding a deposit of 50% of the cost of the hair services required by your bridal party (including trials) is required. An estimate of this cost will be given in the initial consultation and must be paid by bank transfer, cash or cheque before the trial date.

Payment of the remaining balance (minus the deposit) must be paid in full by cash or cheque on the trial date.

The deposit is non-refundable in the event of all or part of the bridal party cancelling.

Travel charges are in addition to above costs and are calculated on the distance (per mile) that is required to travel to and from the venue for trials and the wedding day.

For Saturday bookings there must be a minimum of 3 people in the bridal party that require hair services.

By agreeing to these terms and conditions you are allowing me to use photos taken of you and your party on my website and portfolio.

If in any extreme circumstances I am unable to provide wedding hair services then I will endeavour to find you a replacement and return a full refund of any money you have paid.
