  • Maximum number of hair services
    - x6 hair services is the maximum I am able to complete and depends on the complexity of hairstyles I am to create as I do not use assistants as such. If you have made a booking for up to 4 services but require 1 or 2 more to be added please advise as this must be added and paid for before the wedding day and agreed upon by Natalie Dent.
  • Does my hairstyle require hair extensions?
    Hair extensions are a great way to add volume or length to a hairstyle as well as add longevity to certain styles. If I think the style require would be more achievable with extensions I will advise. Ie. if you have fine hair and wish to wear it down these will help make the style last the distance. If you are unsure if this is something you might need I ask for a photo of your hair from the back/front and a discription or photo reference of the style you are wishing to achieve. I can then advise on what I think would work best. It may be that you want a low bun but just need it to be fuller and we can use some hair padding instead. As I do not rent or supply hair extensions I refer my clients to Superior Hair on Symonds St, CBD to purchase them in store. This way you can be colour matched perfectly after your final wedding day hair colour and cut is done if you plan to do so if not before. An additional 15 mins will be added to any hair service requiring extensions to be added. My pricing allows for x1 set of extensions to be prepped and applied. Please see the fee for this service under pricing if there is more than one person requiring this service to be added on.
  • Booking your wedding day hairstyling services
    Once you have read the pricing and wedding information you can make an enquiry via my contact form stating all of the relevant details for your special day. I am available for hair services only for weddings not makeup. I will respond asap to let you know if I am available and then send through a wedding information booklet with my full Term's and Condition's. Should you choose to go ahead with booking my hairstyling services I will send through an invoice for the services I will provide on your wedding day, showing the booking fee to pay to secure your chosen date/s. By paying this fee you agree to the terms and conditions stated in the wedding information booklet sent out upon enquiry. Only upon receiving this fee will your booking be secure. I am unable to hold pencil bookings for any amount of time due to turning other work away. Closer to the time of the wedding I will contact you to organize your bridal hair preview. I will create a timeline for hair based on your ceremony time / if you are having pre-ceremony (full bridal party or first look) or just getting ready photos typically done at the prep location / taking into account travel time between prep and your ceremony or pre-ceremony locations if any. Any extra hairstyling services added after the initial invoice need to be known prior to your wedding day and agreed upon by myself so I can adjust my timing and confirm I am able to complete the extra services also. Note I have a max of 6 hair services for all wedding day bookings. Two weeks prior to your wedding date I will email through your final wedding day invoice which is to be paid in full no later than one week before your booking date. I will confirm the event details I have for you are correct also.
  • Bridal Hair Preview Bookings FAQS
    Held during the weekdays ONLY between Monday and Thursdays 9am - 12pm at my home studio in Riverhead, Auckland. I am unavailable outside of these times.

BEFORE YOU ATTEND YOUR BRIDAL HAIR PREVIEW Email through your hair references before we meet. Not all hairstyles are suited to every hair type or face shape please take this into consideration when choosing your style. We will discuss these on the day of your preview and decide what will suit you and your hair best. - It is helpful for me to know your wedding style ie romantic, modern, classic etc and will give me an indication of how your overall feel of your wedding day will be and if your hairstyle will match this and the style of makeup your artist is doing. - The night before please wash your hair TWICE with shampoo and once with conditioner on mid-lengths to ends using a good quality brand suitable for your hair type if unsure please ask. - If the hair has natural oil or product build up it can be difficult to style. - Blow wave your hair smooth and straighten if asked, if unsure about hair prep please ask. - Bring along a photo of your wedding gown / garment you will be wearing, hair extensions if required, hair accessories or veil / so we can make sure the placement works. - Wearing white/cream or other colour you may be wearing on your wedding day as well as makeup to your bridal hair preview will give you a better indication of the overall look and how well it works together. AT YOUR BRIDAL HAIR PREVIEW - Bridal Hair Previews take up to 1.5hrs/2 hrs depending on your chosen style / hair type. - Arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment time to ensure I run on time for following clients. - We will discuss your hair references you have sent through and what will look best with your wedding day outfit, your face shape and when to cut/colour your hair before the wedding if required.

  • Who creates my wedding day timeline for hair?
    I will create a timeline for the hairstyling services I am providing and email this to you after your preview if not before. - I generally allow approximately 45-60min per service dependent on each hairstyle and a buffer for any minor delays. - 15mins pp will be added for any hair extensions to be prepped/applied - Hair will be completed one hour before departing for your pre-ceremony photos or your ceremony. This gives you time to relax, have a few 'getting ready' photos and to get dressed. - I will show your bridesmaid or MOB how to apply the veil if required unless a veil placement fee has been paid for as mentioned within pricing where I stay back at the prep location to apply the veil once you are dressed. Please advise. - Ensure everyone having hair done is ready for their timeslot so there are no unnecessary delays. - Hair is required to be WASHED/CLEAN and DRIED/COMBED/BRUSHED prior to the hair service. Anyone having a blow wave service can have damp hair. * Pre - ceremony photos are full bridal party or 'first look' photos between the bride and groom often off-site. This will need to be factored into your hair schedule and will need to start earlier than usual. Please discuss with your photographer if you are choosing this option.
  • Hairstyle references
    - Please send me any hair references for your bridal party/others so I have an idea of what each person is having. If your bridal party are having the same hairstyle I will adjust it accordingly to suit them while maintaining a similar look. It is important everyone feels happy and comfortable throughout the day. - If their is anyone with particularly thick/long/frizzy/curly/fine hair please let me know so I can adjust my timing to suit and advise on hair prep if needed.
  • On your wedding day
    YOUR WEDDING DAY IS HERE! - Everyone has washed/dried their hair the night before ready for me to start my hairstyling services. (See tip below) - All dresses have been steamed (so as not to ruin the beautiful and timely work that has gone into making you all look and feel amazing!) - You have allocated a space for myself to work in that is well lit, preferably natural light with fresh air / good ventilation, with a socket for my hot tools to plug into and a dining chair with a low back if possible. I carry both extension leads and a foldable chair incase. - You have all chosen your hairstyles and have a picture reference available for me to look at if not emailed prior. - Hair extensions needing to be applied to have ready and are clean/dry. Any hair extensions I am not aware of that need to be applied will cause delay. These will be required to be paid for on the day if not I am unaware. TIP - Please ensure anyone who is having hair done has washed their hair the night before (TWO shampoos and condition mid lengths/ends only) , blow dry smooth and straighten if asked/combed/brushed. Please do not tie the hair up/or air dry over night. Extra blow dry time to be done will cause delays. Any questions about anyone's hair please ask ie fine or super curly/frizzy hair. - Please ensure there is someone ready to have their hair done when I arrive and each person there after is ready for their allocated time to prevent me from running late. - I will arrive 10 - 15mins prior to the time I start to set up before the first service. To set up for hair I require a dining chair with a low back, a power point for my hot tools, a table to set up, preferably in a well lit room with natural light by a window in a clean smoke free/vape free environment. Please allow parking close by for myself as often I have a few bags, lighting and a chair if needed. - Once I have completed all of the services I will do any hair adjustments of the services I am booked for before departing. - Veil placement - if required and depending on your hairstyle I will either place this in during your hair service or before I depart once hair touch-ups are completed. If you have chosen to have it put in after you are dressed just before leaving or at your venue so as not to crease it I will show one of your bridal party how to place it in securely unless the veil placement option has been chosen. NB during the day I often take photos/videos of the work I do for social media purposes of which I will post after your wedding ceremony.
