Why Shear Inspiration Studio?
I have worked at over 100 weddings to date and have experiences with all kinds of hair and styles. My passion is bridal hair and I absolutely love everything about being apart of the process of making our brides feel beautiful. In 2015 we were a finalist at the 2015 Vancouver Island Wedding Awards for best “upstyle” . We participate in dozens of styled photoshoots a year with several fabulous photographers from around the island. Shear Inspiration Studio is one of the few salons that are a “preferred” vendor on Junebug Wedding and we have been featured in several online wedding magazines and blogs. The owner of Shear Inspiration Studio, Kelsey, is also a certified Wedding Planner so she understands the importance of your big day.
How do I reserve the date?
Reserving the date is simple! Dates are held by contract only and on a first come, first serve basis. Just let me know you’d like a contract, I email it over and ask that you send it back! Once the contract is received back, the date is yours! No deposit necessary!
What is your cancellation policy?
Shall you need to cancel the contract we charge 50% of the services to your credit card provided. If you need to simply post-pone your date to the following year there is no cancellation charge. If you cancel within 30 days of your wedding 100% of the services will be charged.
Are trials offered?
Of course! Trials are offered at an extra cost at the salon.
When should we meet for a trial? What should I bring?
Typically, I suggest meeting 1-2 months prior to the wedding date. You should bring inspiration pictures of hair you like as well as your hair accessories (veil, tiara, jewels, etc., even earrings) to the trial; this way you see the finished look together!
Can my mom/grandmother/aunt schedule a trial?
I offer trials to anyone interested! Prices are $60 per person for a hair trial.
Can I do a trial before signing a contract?
Yes, I am happy to meet with you for a trial before you sign a contract. However, please keep in mind this means your date is not secured without a signed contract.
Do I need to bring my own pins for hair services?
I supply all the necessary products (bobby pins, hair sprays, smoothing creams, etc.) on the wedding day. If you have accessories to embellish your style, like jewels or flowers, please bring them with you. I will put them in for you!
Can you put in hair extensions?
Yes, if a bride would like to have clip in extensions put in, that is included in the cost! I do not supply the extensions; make sure they are real hair and come with clips already attached. If anyone else in your party would like to add extensions, there is a small fee for adding them in the style.
How many people can you accommodate on the wedding day?
I can comfortably accommodate up to 10 people on the wedding day. If you have a larger party, I bring another highly qualified hair artist with me! There would be a $100 assistant fee.
How long does it take per person on the wedding day?
I allot 30-45 minutes per person and about one hour for the bride! Since I get to do this every weekend, this timing is pretty exact : )
I also incorporate a 15 minute set-up time before starting the first client.
What type of payment is acceptable?
I accept cash or credit cards.
Important wedding day preparations and details:
Please make sure all members of the party have clean, dry hair. Please do not flat iron(unless we ask you too)
Please make sure all your girls are ready when their time comes. Any gaps between girls could delay the process and exceed the time you must be ready. Please wear a button down/wide neck shirt while having hair styled.
