FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a trial? Must I do one?
A bridal trial is an opportunity prior to the wedding to experiment with styles/shades to ensure the wedding day runs smoothly. No, a trial is not required although highly recommended.
NOTE: Should you need to reschedule a trial, please give at least 24 hours notice.
How far in advance should I schedule my trial?
Most brides choose to schedule trial 2-3 months prior, or whenever you are comfortable doing so. Notes & pictures are taken at time of trial to easily recreate your look day on the of the wedding.
What can I do to prepare for the trial?
Please arrive with day old(or older)blown hair and a clean/moisturized face if you will also receive makeup services.
Should you choose to wear extensions, please bring them with you.
Don’t forget your veil and any other hair pieces you will be wearing on the day of the event to get the full effect!
I would suggest wearing a simple white/cream colored shirt, it's hard to feel bride-like in a sweatshirt.
Please allow 1 hr 30 mins or 2.5-3 hours for both hair and makeup.
Do you provide makeup services?
Yes! Both traditional and airbrushing offered.
Why choose airbrush?
Airbrush foundation offers the best possible longevity, and can really hold up to a long day/night of dancing, tears, hugs & kisses! Airbrush can be customized based upon your personal needs, providing coverage ranging from sheer to full.
What brands of makeup do you carry?
A variety of brands, including MAC, NARS, Anastasia of Beverly Hills, Bobbi Brown, Kat Von D, Urban Decay, Becca cosmetics, Laura Mercier, Temptu, Kett Cosmetics, Smashbox, Stilla.
How many women are you able to accommodate per bridal party?
I book 30 minutes per bridal party member per service, ex: hair & makeup 1 hours -1 1/2 hrs.
Allow 1 1/2 hours for bride's hair & makeup.
The amount of ladies I am able to accommodate depends on when everyone will need to be completed by and how much time you would like to designate for hair and makeup services. For larger parties, I can enlist the help of trusted professionals that I work with frequently.
Can I book just hair, or just makeup?
Absolutely! Although, during peak wedding season (March- November) a minimum of $500 (not including deposit) is required to reserve a Saturday.
What sets you apart from other on-location Make up Artists and stylists?
For me, being a Makeup Artist and Stylist is a lot more than just a job. I put my heart into every style I create. To ensure I give every bride and her bridal party the best possible experience, it is my policy to never book more than one event per day. I will never be rushing off to another wedding without making absolutely certain everyone is happy with their services. I take the responsibility of ensuring your wedding photos (which you will have foreverrrrr) will be breath taking very seriously.
Do you stay after to touch-up hair & makeup?
I absolutely can! Touch-up after ceremony is a separate service for which I charge $75/hr.
Do you charge for travel, what other fees must I cover?
Travel is complimentary 25 miles from 11743, 75¢ per additional mile (round trip mileage). I ask that the bride also cover any parking fees. I am also open to traveling for Destination Weddings.
Do you require a contract/deposit to book my wedding?
Yes, a signed contract and $200 deposit is required to reserve your wedding date. The $200 deposit will be applied to the remaining balance due day of wedding. (Note: without deposit, your wedding date is NOT secured.)
I'm ready to reserve my wedding date, what's next?
Great, I look forward to working with you! The $200 deposit can be paid via: venmo, square cash, paypal(tax applied), mailed check. At the top of the page under forms, you will find a link to the contract for you look over and complete.
What forms of payment do you accept day of wedding?
2.9% will be added to paypal payments.
No longer accepting chip credit cards, I apologize for the inconvenience.
