Frequently Asked Questions About Booking Hair and Makeup For Your Wedding Date
WHAT IS YOUR BOOKING PROCESS?
After completing the form on our Contact Page, you will be contacted within 48 hours to confirm availability. Some brides book immediately and sign a contract, while some schedule a trial prior to signing. To secure your wedding date, I require a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK?
I recommend booking 6-12 months in advance.
IS THERE A MINIMUM FOR BOOKING?
There is a $800 service minimum, which does not include the trial or travel fee.
HOW LONG DOES EACH SERVICE TAKE?
For the bride, I book 1 hour for hair, 1 hour for makeup and for attendants, I book 30 minutes for makeup and 30 minutes for hair.
CAN I HIRE YOU TO STAY FOR TOUCH UPS?
Absolutely! Although your makeup is applied to last all day, some brides feel more comfortable if their stylist is with them throughout the evening.
IS GRATUITY INCLUDED IN YOUR PRICING?
Gratuity is not included in the pricing but is appreciated!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK A TRIAL?
If you would like to have your hair and makeup trial before booking, I recommend doing it as soon as possible to ensure your wedding date remains available. If you have already secured your wedding date with me, I recommend doing the trial 1-4 months before the wedding date.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT MY TRIAL?
For the trial, I ask the bride to arrive with a clean face, free of moisturizers or other products and clean, dry hair. We will discuss your vision for your wedding hair and/or makeup and look at inspiration pictures. The trial helps me understand your vision and also learn about your hair and skin type. From there, we will work together to create the perfect look for your wedding day.
WHERE DO THE TRIALS TAKE PLACE?
Trials take place at your home or other location of your choice.
IS THERE A TRAVEL FEE?
The travel fee is $1.80 per mile. Weddings that are 3+ hours away require that the artist arrive the night before. The bride is responsible for arranging accommodations.
DO YOU AIRBRUSH?
No, I do not offer airbrush makeup due to personal preference. With proper skin prep and the correct products for your skin, traditional makeup applications are flawless, comfortable on the skin and will last throughout the day and evening.
WHAT BRAND OF MAKEUP DO YOU USE?
I use a variety of high-quality, professional brands, including MAC, NARS and Face Atelier, to name a few.
DO YOU USE FALSE EYELASHES?
Yes, I offer false lashes and they are included in the price of your makeup.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
We accept cash, check and Venmo.
