The Top 5 Essential Bridal Consultation Tips
Bridal style director at Michael Van Clarke, Gustav Fouche shares his top bridal consultation tips for keeping your clients happy ahead of their big day…
1. Be Confident
Show your bridal knowledge and authority. This will make brides feel relaxed and calm, which will make life much easier for you.
2. Request Images
Ask your bridal client to bring ve images that represent the styles they like so you can get a feel for what they might want, and ask about the feel of their wedding too.
3. Outline all Costs in Advance
This includes travel and present the bride with a provisional quote, which is agreed. Take a deposit and get payment at least one month in advance of the big day.
4. Provide a Pre-Wedding Routine
After the contract is agreed suggest a cut every six to seven weeks for maintenance or to grow the hair working back from the wedding day. Recommend the bride colours her hair 10 days before the wedding to allow time for it to settle and suggest the products that you would like her to use.
5. Create a Timeline
Giving your bride a timeline for the day will ensure she understands the hair, make-up and dressing timescales.
