Frequently Asked Questions
When should I book my hair and make up artist?
As soon as possible. I only take one wedding booking a day.
How do I pay a deposit to secure my wedding date?
£50 deposit can be paid by Bank transfer to: Lorna Biglie, 110900, 00523211. This is non refundable and will be deducted off the final balance due on the big day. If you send me a message to confirm that the deposit has been sent I will send you a confirmation and get you booked into my diary.
Are deposits refundable?
No, deposits are not refundable.
When do I pay my final balance?
On the big day by cash or bank transfer, whatever suits you best.
When should I have my trials?
Anytime that suits you and your wedding party. I would say at least 1 month before the wedding if not before that.
Where would trials take place?
I can come to you at your home/venue or you can come to me at my home studio in Balloch, Loch Lomond.
How many guests for hair and make up can you do?
I’m happy to get started as early as you would like on the big day, its roughly 30 minutes for hair and 30/40 minutes for make up. This will give me a guide on how many I can fit in.
I already have a hair stylist booked would you be happy to do just make up?
Yes, sometimes with bigger wedding parties due to timing its better to do one or the other. I work with other hair and make up artists all the time, we work as a team in the morning, make sure all runs smoothly and we arent looking for the same person at the same time.
I won’t make it for a trial, will this be a problem?
If you can’t make a trial with myself I do recommend that you go and have a trial elsewhere to make sure you know what you want. Get loads of photos from all angles as you want to make sure you LOVE your hair and make up from every angle, with all these camera phones these days! This is also great for me to see what you want on yourself rather than on someone else, we all have different hair types/skin types, thickness, colouring etc. Sometimes a trial also makes you realise what you don’t like. Dont be disheartened if this happens as its a good thing you tried it.
I can also work from photos from your phone, internet, magazines. This is great for giving me an idea of what you like to save any confusion on the big day.
How far will you travel?
I am based in Balloch, Loch Lomond however I am happy to travel all over Scotland. There will be a travel change anywhere outside the West Dunbartonshire area. I can confirm this with a postcode.
How far in advance are you taking wedding bookings?
At the moment I’m taking wedding bookings for 2017, 2018, 2019.
Would there be any reason you would cancel my wedding booking?
I get booked up so far in advance its hard to know when there maybe a time that someone in the family/friend is getting married, hen do’s etc if this was the case I would find another professional hair/MUA for you. In this case i would return your £50 deposit. This would also be well in advance to your wedding as if it was someone im close to I would know well in advance.
