BRIDAL HAIR/MAKE UP AND SPECIAL EVENTS

 

Welcome to Hair by Helene, the mobile hairdresser, who offers a friendly and reliable mobile bridal hair and makeup service. I specialize in weddings, brides and bride maids!

Your wedding is the day you dreamed about since you were a little girl, and I will share your dreams on your wedding day. Your wedding hair and makeup are so important, not only for your big day, but also for a life time of memories. When you look back at your wedding photos you want your children (and hopefully your grand children) to say, "Oh, my... you looked absolutely gorgeous, beautiful, stunning, fabulous!"

 

My goal is to give you the wedding look you've always dreamed of. A look that reflects your unique personality and style which you, your groom, your family and your guests will delight in. I always provide a friendly, helpful and professional service with a fun and personal touch that will make the 'getting ready' part of your day almost as memorable as the rest of it!

By focusing on a high-quality service and customer satisfaction, I guarantee to meet your wildest expectations. I do professional bridal hair and make-up; I will give you advice regarding the hair style and make-up you had in mind. I will consider the design of your dress, your veil, accessories, etc. I use only the best hair care products to ensure a perfect look throughout your wedding day. Your wedding day should be fun, exciting, without stress, and you should enjoy every second of it. Using the best products in the business and, up-to-date with current trends, I can do any look you want, classic or contemporary, natural or totally glamorous!

 

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and obviously you want to look your absolute gorgeous best ! On your wedding day, I will focus on your specific needs and requirements, creating the perfect and desired hairstyle for you and your bridal party. I specialize in weddings; I understand the importance of detail and planning. I take full responsibility for the trust you put in me to achieve your finest, most beautiful and exquisite look ever. The result of your hair and makeup reflects back to my capabilities, expertise and professionalism and that drives me to the point of obsession to achieve faultless perfection.

 

Wedding days are long and can be very stressful and tiring; I want you to look as perfect at the end of your wedding day as you did in the morning. It is most important to make your hair look absolutely beautiful but equally important is to make it stay that way! Under normal conditions, my styles should last for at least a 16-hour day. I cater for all bridal parties, small or large, and I will give you my opinion of what will suit you best on the day. Whether you are having an 'up-do', curls or if your hair is short; I will listen to all your ideas. If you have a particular style in mind bring your pictures and photos along or e-mail it to me.

 

 I love doing bridal hair and I intend to make you look absolutely fabulous on your wedding day!

I love hair and weddings; wedding hair is a real passion for me. Traditional hairdresser training doesn't involve any real bridal hair specific modules therefore most hair salons prefer that you to go to bridal hair specialists to have your hair done. Over the years I have been on several bridal hair specific courses to learn how to do all the different types and styles of bridal hair, as well as the use of hair decorations and veils. if you want straight hair I can do the alternative of Brazilian hair treatment as well.  I am also available to do bridal parties including mothers of the bride, bride maids and anyone else who want perfect hair on the day. I am booked several months in advance so please contact me to book your date to avoid disappointment.

 

Hairdressing rehearsal

A hair test trial is very important because it will ensure that the style you had in mind will suit and complement all your features and components. Having seen what you are going to look like will give you peace of mind until your wedding day! I will start your wedding day in a relaxed and calm manner. I will come to your place to ensure that you do not have the added stress of travel. With over 25 years experience dealing with brides, I will make sure that you will look absolutely fabulous and relaxed on your wedding day. You can sip champagne, wine, tea, or a hot cappuccino while immersing yourself in an atmosphere of creativity and style.

 

I do not chase trends; I initiate them. I will treat your hair to a precision cut, colour, and the style you always wanted. I can also do your make up and false eye lashes and save you a lot of money in the process.

 

 Wedding & Bridal Make Up

My experience in the Modelling, TV and Stage hairstyling, and make-up business qualified me to do the brides' and bride maids' make up as well. I can also advise you on jewelry,  your wedding dress and accessories that will suit you and complement you. Be warned! I will tell you if something doesn't suit you! My experience, opinions, recommendations, hair styling, hair colours, flashes, perms and makeup are at your disposal ! I use only the best cosmetics and I offer bridal make up services that will complement your personal style. Your look could be sultry with a strong focus on smokey eyes, with eyelashes to enhance the length, nude lips or maybe a very soft natural glow with a flawless finish.

 

Wedding dresses

A bride and her bride maids obviously want to look their best ever on your wedding day ! You can either rent a dress or have one specially designed for you for almost the same price! While you are in the process of exploring I can recommend you to wedding dress designers and rental boutiques.

Wedding hair and makeup prices

 

I realise that this is probably the most expensive day of your life. I believe I can put a bridal package together to suit your budget. If you are prepared to pay thousands for 'brand names', that is up to you; I believe that I can do the same or better for far less than what you are going to pay for the 'new generation' brand name stylists and make up artists. It is not always true that you have to pay more for better.

 

I do not have to pay thousands for expensive fancy brand name salons and rent in some 'exclusive up-market' mall. I am in a very good situation to do your hair at very competitive price. Beware for too cheap also !!! You could end up looking like Daisy on your wedding day ! I've been in the business too long; I do not take chances and shortcuts and I will not put you at risk on you wedding day ! 

 

Appointment

I am very busy and extensively booked because of my reputation for creating stunning bridal hair and makeup. Do not wait until it is too late to contact me. I strongly recommend that you contact me at least three to six months prior to your wedding for a consultation and to make an appointment for a test trail hair and makeup session. If you want to contact me to discuss your hair and beauty requirements, please give me a call or use my contact page and me send me an e-mail to: hairbyheleneatgmail [dot] com . I look forward to hear from you.

 

Your Trial

Gather some ideas, pictures, colour and flashes, head pieces, etc. and bring it along to the trial. We can work you into the theme and colour scheme of your wedding look. If I do your makeup your skin will be cleansed and prepared before makeup application to ensure perfect coverage and longevity. We will discuss everything, from flowers, the venue, your wedding dress, bride maids, flower girls, mother of the bride, etc.  to ensure that you are completely comfortable with the proposed style and colours. Photo's will be taken and a face chart done to re-create your personal look on your wedding day.

 

Trail and Wedding Hair Styling Appointments:

 Please make arrangements for an appointment with me. You must appreciate that this is one of the most important days of your life! We must discuss your idees of your wedding, the hair style and makeup you have in mind, etc. If you are satisfied and happy with my proposals you can make an appointment for a trail. The trail includes a precision cut, blow wave and styling. For Brazilian hair you will have to book at least 2-4 weeks before your trail and wedding day. Optional extra costs for colouring, flashes/ foils, accessories; hair care shampoo and treatment products if required. The trail must be done at least 2 weeks before your wedding.

 

A trail can never be a flop because the main reason for a trail is to make sure that the style you had in mind will work for you; and if it doesn't work for you, it will be the only time before your wedding to find out and change your style. This is the only time we can change and improvise on your wedding hair style ! Some brides to be go to a few hair stylists for trails and end up wasting a lot of money and end up completely confused afterwards. I had a bride-to-be for her trail recently; she had a picture of a model with an 'up-do' hairstyle; she and her mother insisted that I do the same for her.

 

I told them it would not suit her; she ended up looking like a Swiss-roll; she got what she asked for !

She did not have the time and money to come for a second trail. On her wedding day they asked me to do what I suggested on her trail which I thought would suit her best. I did a completely different style and she looked stunning; everybody complemented her. Her mother phoned me afterwards and they send me a couple of sms's to complement and thank me for the great success of her hair-, her bride maids' and her bride daughters' hair.

I do not handle money on wedding days. On your big day my focus and full attention will be on your wedding hair styling and makeup. We will discuss finances/payments on your appointment and trail.

 

Optional Extra Costs Involved:

It is very important to use the shampoo and hair care products which I can supply to ensure that your hair is in the best  condition on your wedding day.  Do not waste money on off the shelf   'conditioners' before your trail because it forms a layer on your hair instead of penetrating the hair like the hair care treatment products I use. That is the reason why hair treated with off the shelf conditioners does not style well; it tends to fall flat when heat is applied. 

 

Unfortunately I had cases where the brides-to-be got someone else to colour their hair, and to save money, some of them even coloured their own hair with stuff they got from Clicks, Pick & Pay or some chemist.

Just remember,  hair is one of the most important features of a bride; they usually spend thousands on dresses, shoes, venues, etc. but then they want to save a couple of rands on cheap hair care and treatment products and will blame the hair stylist if the hair doesn't style and maintain properly for the whole day! I am very reluctant to do brides who used off the shelf hair care, colour and treatment products because of experience I know that their hair will not style very well.

 

Some brides came to me in a complete mess; the colouring a disaster; their hair damaged and dry and I had to do double conditioner treatments to fix their hair the best I could. In most cases I had to do the colouring all over again and that is a costly and time consuming process !  Remember, there are no second chances on your wedding day !  I want you to be completely confident that you will get the best possible hair style and makeup on the day. I want you to be picture perfect on your wedding day. Bridal hair is my passion and speciality; I know the business; you will look stunning when I'm finished with you ! If you need referrals to give you peace of mind you are more than welcome to contact me for details.

 

Your hair must be in a healthy, manageable, maximum body and shining condition for the best possible styling on the day. Do not wash, do not use conditioners and do not colour your hair before you come to me for your trail; I will inspect your hair and give you the right shampoo and hair care treatment products to fix your hair to be ready for your wedding. I will take care of everything; I take full responsibility for the condition of your hair, the colouring and the final result providing you use the hair care products, shampoo and treatment which I will supply to you, and that you follow the instructions we discussed.

Travelling costs will be discussed and quoted if distance to venue is more than 20 kms. Flat rate cost @ R5.00 per kilometer both ways or as quoted and agreed, will be applicable.

Before your day

I will be in touch with you to re-confirm and finalize all the arrangements to ensure that everybody will be on time and aware of any changes. I am available to discuss ways to ensure that your hair and skin is in optimum condition to have you glowing throughout the whole day and evening until you depart on your honeymoon!

On The Day

 

Always professional and reliable I will come to you to take the worry of travel out of your day. I will be on time to have you ready to step into your dress and go. Any head pieces will be attached, touch ups will be applied before I leave. I look forward to meet you and to take care of you on your big day.
