We have worked in several places such as Italy, and Mexico and are happy to go wherever our brides take us. Please inquire with us for more specific pricing information.

How long is a trial? For hair and makeup, expect to take anywhere from 3 to 4 hours. This gives us enough time to assess your hair and skin, go through your inspiration photos, go over any question and concerns, and try out some looks.

What Location does it take place? For trials in the USA, we travel to you, so you choose the location. In India, trials are held in our studio in Santa Cruz.
