FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:


Where and When Can I Have my Trial?

Trials are available by appointment only Mondays through Thursdays at client’s location of choice.

How Can I Plan for my Trial?

Please provide a picture of yourself in daylight and of your hair inspiration photos prior to your appointment. This will help Nikia better prepare for the appointment and ensure you’re happy with the end result. You can browse Nikia's Instagram for inspiration. If you’re torn between a few looks, don’t worry! Nikia will help you finalize a look that fits your wedding style during your appointment. For bridal trials, it is helpful to wear a white or light colored top with no collar to resemble your wedding dress.


How Do I Prep My Hair?

Please shampoo and blow dry your hair the day before or the day of your appointment. Do not flat iron your hair as it is very hard to curl once it’s been flat-ironed. If you plan on wearing your hair curly for the wedding, please wear it curly for your appointment. Please do not arrive with wet hair, unless you are getting a blow-out for your style. Nikia does not shampoo hair at trials or appointments.


What Should I Bring?

Please bring any hair accessories that you plan on wearing for your wedding day. If you have a specific hair product that you want to use for your wedding, please bring those as well. If you have allergies to certain brands or ingredients, please let Nikia know in advance.


How Can I Pay?

Trial payments are made at the time of booking. Please note that a trial is not confirmed until a payment is received.


How Long Will It Take?

Hair trials take about one hour. Please specify if you have a special circumstance, such as very long and thick hair so that more time can be added to your trial.


Can I Try Different Looks?

Nikia recommends that you choose your favorite hair look for your appointment. Nikia is happy to make some adjustments to the hair during the trial based on your feedback. If you want to start a new and completely different look from scratch after the first two hours, there will be a $50 charge for every extra half hour after.


Will You Be Taking Pictures at the Trial?

Nikia will take before and after photos at the trial to capture your transformation. Nikia is happy to send you a copy of the photos. Nikia will use these for reference and to add to her portfolio of work.


Can I Reserve my Wedding Date at the Trial?

If you’re happy with your trial and want to move forward with booking your wedding date, Nikia will need a completed and signed contract in addition to a deposit of 30% of your wedding day services. Deposits and contracts are done through Square.
