I love your style! When should I book my wedding day services?

The best time to book any/all services for the wedding would be 6-9 months before the wedding day.
A retainer is required to secure our services for the wedding day.

Why is a hair/makeup preview important?

To ensure the perfect look for your wedding day, a preview session is strongly recommended.
Previews are intended to be a glimpse of the getting ready process on your wedding day. This is an opportunity to work through your preferred styles, make tweaks according to your features and preferences, and find the best overall look for you. This is also an opportunity for me to talk through some tips, any preparation needed, and the best method or products for your specific skin type or hair length/texture.
Feel free to bring pictures from magazines, Pinterest, and other sources of style looks you would like to try. After deciding on the look that is right for you, wewill create the whole experience!

How long will my hair & makeup last?

Your hairstyle will last until you take it down. Since specific methods are used to hold curls, anchor pins, and guard against humidity, it is very rare for a style to come undone during the course of your wedding day.
We employ specific application techniques & utilize specially formulated products allow your makeup to have wonderful staying power for the entire wedding day!

How much time should I allow in my schedule for hair & makeup?

Because we choose to set aside ample time in order to create a stress-free environment, scheduling varies on the amount of styling and application. A typical timeline can take around 4-6 hours! For the bride alone, hair and makeup will take approximately three hours. Bridesmaids and mothers should also plan for 1.5 hours. For an additional fee, a larger team of artists can work in a shorter timeframe, if needed! A timeline is made personally for your bridal party after all of the details have been worked out!

What if my mom, my mother-in-law, and my bridesmaids want professional hair and makeup too? How large of a group can you handle?

We can accommodate any size group for hair and makeup services!
The initial email correspondence, along with your wedding details, will determine how many artists your group will need.

Is gratuity included in my service charge?

No. Gratuity is not included in pricing, and is at the discretion of the client.
