The Advantages of Booking Your Trial Run With Me

Once you’ve selected your gown, it’s time to start thinking about hair and makeup. You might want to put a file together of various looks that you’d like to try, keeping in mind your hair length and texture. I suggest we meet to discuss these looks and do a trial run.
In terms of makeup, the questions I ask brides are:
1. What time of day is your ceremony?
2. Is it indoors or outdoors? 
3. What colors do you prefer? 
4. Do you think you’d like a natural look or something a little more
After each look is completed, I take digital photos that I print for you so that you can decide what you like or don’t like. This also gives you an idea of how the look photographs which is especially helpful for those of you who don’t regularly wear much makeup. We can talk about any changes and I’ll know how much time to allow and plan accordingly.  The trial run usually takes anywhere from 2 to 3 hours.  I hold them at my house where there's great, natural light and plenty of room.The rate for the trial run is $175. Call  or email me to schedule your trial run today, 818-786-0422 or

Here are some recent before and afters  of trial runs I've done recently:

The New French Manicure

Stephanie Stone, Nail Stylist
                       On May1st, I attended the Urban Unveiled Bridal Show at the gorgeous Vibiana,
                       presented by California Wedding Day magazine. On the way out I was given a 
                       copy of the magazine and came upon a piece entitled, "The New French Manicure"
                       with this beautiful picture of the look by nail stylist, Stephanie Stone of Nailing
                       Hollywood Management, Inc. She says, " A nude to white ombre nail is chic yet               
                       simplistic enough  to complement your wedding ring without outshining it."  A-men
                       I say to that! Hopefully this will put an end to the squared off and harsh lines of the         
                       ubiquitous, current French manicures.
