Should I schedule a trial before I book the date?
Our dates book extremely fast. We recommend reserving your date as soon as possible. You are more than welcome to schedule a trial before booking, however we cannot ensure your wedding date unless it is reserved.

Do you schedule trials on the weekends?
Unfortunately, since we book weddings all year long during the weekends, we are not able to accommodate trials on those days since we will be away from the salon. We are more than happy to schedule a trial for you on Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays.

How long will it take to complete the hair and makeup for the bride and bridal party? Will there be enough time to complete a large bridal party?

    Best hair/makeup team!

    Chelsea and her team stood by me through two postponements during the COVID pandemic. They were extremely flexible and kind, helpful, and answered every question I had. On the big day, Chelsea, Heather, Lindsay, and Angela got everyone's hair and makeup done in a timely manner (not an easy feat for 10 people!) and everyone looked amazing.
    I appreciated that everyone looked natural and not too overdone. I was concerned about my skin and I also really appreciated Heather answering all my questions leading up to the big day and taking her time so I looked my best!

    Amazing! Can't wait to use for my big wedding!

    Chelsea was amazing to work with from the start! She's very responsive and answers all of your questions. I had originally planned to use her services for me and all of my bridesmaids for my large wedding but had to postpone due to COVID. She was able to be flexible and still style my hair for my "microwedding" this August. Due to COVID we weren't able to have a trial, but after showing Chelsea a few different pictures she totally nailed what I wanted! This was even more impressive because I am not usually the best at communicating exactly what I want when it comes to hair and makeup. Chelsea worked amazingly with my hair type and was so personable the whole time. She also rearranged her schedule so that she could be there early enough to do my hair. I cannot wait to use her for my "big wedding" next summer!

    Yes yes yes!

    Chelsea and Heather are the dream team! I am a COVID bride who had to reschedule to July 2021. They were so accommodating during that crazy time and easily moved their services to my new date. These two are not only professional and talented but are so much fun to be around. They are easy-going and kind while making sure you and your loved ones look beautiful. Each of my bridesmaids were able to select their own hair and makeup styles and Chelsea and Heather made everyone look and feel like a rock star. They also went above and beyond when at the last minute they accommodated my grandmother, who is undergoing chemo, and did her hair and makeup. Chelsea also has a background in working with wigs and easily styled my grandmother’s wig. I HIGHLY recommend Salon 52 for your wedding!!!
