It's trial time!!! 😍
Trials for hair and makeup should be fun, stress free and informative. As a bride, you are making so many choices, trying on tons of dresses, looking at venues, flowers, napkins, shoes, you name it! Here at Salon 52, we pride ourselves on making your hair and makeup the easy part! We take this trial time to try different looks, discuss your wedding theme, etc. We can also go over timing for the day of, the schedule and all the details in between. 😉😉
So we know you have been going Pinterest crazy and we want to see! 👏 Your trial will go much smoother if you have an idea of what you’re looking for. Also, know what you don’t want, too—that can be just as helpful! Plus, this knowledge can help you decide if you even need a trial. If you sport a pixie cut and just want a fancy headband for the big day, there’s no need to practice. Unsure of what you want? A little indecisive? Don't panic! Our stylists use this trial time to sit with you and TRY things. We all online shop and buy something based on the picture and we get it home and don't like it on ourselves. It's the same thing with hair style and makeup pictures. That's why we have a trial!
If you don't like something say something; this is the whole point of a trial. Don't be shy! Our stylists are the friendliest girls around and want to work with you to create the perfect look!
How to Come Ready👇👇
Clean and Product-Free! For a hair trial, wash your hair the night before (so it has time to regain its natural oils) and don’t put in any product. If you need to do a little taming with a straightener or curling iron, that’s OK—just don’t overdo it. You want your hair to be as natural as possible. For a makeup trial, continue your typical skin-care routine. Don’t put on any products before your trial. A clean face is always best! (Moisturizer is fine) 💄💋
What to Wear-
A shirt with a similar neckline and color to your dress this helps you really see the vision! 👰
What to bring-
Photos📸!!! And lots of them. If you like elements of a couple different hairstyles or makeup looks, bring photos of all of them, and photos of your dress, so your stylist can use them to build one cohesive vision. Please bring any hair accessories or lip colors you may wear. We always ask that you leave your veil safe at home. We have practice veils to use at your trial. We are a full service salon and that means there is hair color in the salon and we don't want any of your wedding day white items to be touched. 😉
Bring a Supportive Friend or
❤️Having someone to give advice and support is always a good thing when it comes to wedding planning.
Your Phone or Camera-
Your stylist and artist will help take lots of photos for you to look back on and show your friends!📸📸
P.S. We ask that you wear your trial around for a while after you leave to see how it feels- if you don't want your fiancé peeking make plans ahead of time to avoid them!
We cannot wait for the 2017 season to begin, and to meet all of you beautiful brides and your loved ones! We are dedicated to making your time working with us stress free and fun! We love what we do and it is a true honor to be a part of all your special occasions.
Trials are done at our studio at 11 Marist Drive Poughkeepsie, NY 12601. We are directly between the TEG Bank and liquor store. We offer trials Wednesday-Friday.
Weekends we are normally out of the salon on location for weddings or styled shoots.
See you soon! -Chelsea, Lindsay, Heather, Angela, Sarah and Johnna ❤️❤️
