What are the benefits of hiring a hair and makeup professional for my event?
Hiring a professional hair and makeup stylist ensures you punctuality, reliability, and complete satisfaction. You can have the peace of mind knowing I will be there on time and ready to work resulting in picture perfect beauty on your wedding day!
Can you come on-location for my consultation and for my wedding day?
Absolutely, I am a freelance artist, that’s my specialty! I do have a travel fee and I am available for out of state weddings as well as destination weddings. All consultations are held at my home studio.
Do you charge for travel, what other fees must I cover?
Yes, there is a travel fee which varies depending on location as well as any parking, tolls or miscellaneous travel expenses.
What should I expect at a hair and makeup consultation?
It is imperative that before your consultation, that you collect as many clear and precise pictures of various hair and makeup styles as this assists our collaborative efforts to reduce ambiguity and ensure your complete and total satisfaction. For hair consultations, it is recommended your hair is clean from the day before or the day of the consultation. The consultation is all about you and what you want! Depending on how many styles you would like to try, we will work together to create your very own personalized style!
How far in advance should I schedule my consultation before my wedding?
You can schedule your consultation typically 8-12 weeks before your big day. If you would prefer an earlier consultation, I would be happy to accommodate your needs.
How far in advance should I book you for my wedding?
A typical bride would need to book 4-6 months before the wedding. However, I will do my best to accommodate brides with special or last minute time constraints.
Is there a deposit/hold date fee?
There is a deposit of $200 which gets credited towards your services the day of the wedding and also secures the date. This is non-refundable.
How many women can you accommodate per bridal party?
I book 20-60 minute appointments per bridal party member (depending on the hair/makeup style choice). This typically means I can accommodate parties as large as 8-12 (depending on the hair/makeup style choice). For larger parties, I can enlist the help of a trusted professional at an additional cost.
What if not everyone wants their hair & makeup done?
While I highly recommend that I style your entire group to ensure a cohesive look, I am happy to build a custom package including hair only, makeup only, eyes only, or even just airbrush foundation.
Can I just have hair done? Or just have makeup done?
I can absolutely personalize your hair or your makeup. Please keep in mind it is recommended the same person do both the bride’s hair and makeup for continuity. You will want everything to flow together beautifully – Your facial features, head piece, veil, and neckline of the gown which usually works best if the same person does both your hair and makeup. You usually don’t realize how important that is until you get your photos back.
What if I want a style change between my ceremony and reception? What about touch ups for pictures?
I can certainly provide hair and makeup assistance throughout your wedding day for hair style changes or makeup touch ups during photos. I can be present for as many hours as you need, beginning with your initial personalized hair and makeup style. I offer a customizable package. Please contact me to build your custom package!
What’s the advantage to airbrush foundation? What about false lashes?
Airbrush foundation provides a flawless, long-lasting matte finish for your skin. It is touchable and transfer-proof and it is compatible with all skin types. Airbrush foundation is also sweat, tear, and smear resistant. Benefits also include fewer powder touchups and the coverage can be customized easily from light to heavy. It covers blemishes extremely well, giving your skin a smooth, airbrushed finish.
False lashes are great to add to your makeup style! False lashes photograph extremely well, and there are many different styles of false lash strips that give you that “pop.” They are available in smaller sections and single lashes as well if you prefer more of a natural look. I highly recommend both airbrush foundation and false lashes. False lashes are complimentary with any makeup application!
Is gratuity included in my service charge?
Gratuity is not included or mandatory. Although a 15-20% gratuity is an industry standard, I am greatly appreciative for what you feel most comfortable with, based on your level of satisfaction!
