What is included in my consultation?
You should be sure to go through pictures of hairstyles and makeup looks you like with your makeup artist and/or hairstylist. Feel free to bring pictures from magazines or pinterest board of styles you would like to try to your trial run. After deciding on the look that is right for you, your stylist will create the whole look for you. If at any time during your consultation you want to change your look, just let your stylist know. After your look is complete, a picture is taken to assure the exact same look on your big day. Share your Pinterest board with us -->
How long does the trial run usually take?
The trial run is intended to be a dress rehearsal for how getting ready will go on your wedding day, but could quite possibly take longer since 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 your stylist to talk through some tips, any preparation needed, and the best method or products for your specific skin type or hair length/texture. We recommend planning on 1-2 hours for your hair or makeup trial, If you are planning on doing both a hair and makeup trial please allow 3 hours.
How large of a group can you handle?
We can accommodate any size group for hair and makeup services! Your lead stylist will determine how many artists are needed based how many people are included in your group and how much time you have set aside for getting ready.
How many artists will I have?
For parties of six or more, there will be two artists for each service booked. For parties of one to five, there will one or two artists, depending on the services booked. Your lead stylist will determine how many artists your group will need.
What if not everyone wants their hair & makeup done?
We highly recommend that your artists style your entire group to ensure a cohesive look, we're happy to build a custom package for you, too.
Is gratuity included in my service charge?
Gratuity is not included in the pricing but always greatly appreciated from all artists.
What if I want a style change between my ceremony and reception? What about touch ups for pictures?
We can certainly provide hair and makeup assistance throughout your wedding day for style changes or touch ups during photos. Your stylist will be present for as many hours as you need, beginning when your initial bridal style is complete. This type of service can be reserved separately and is billed on an hourly basis at a rate of $75/hour. (minimum 3 hours)
I don't really know where to start. Do you have any tips to help me?
Having on-site hair and makeup services can save you time and money. You can start getting ready later in the day (letting you get your beauty sleep!) and since the artists come to you, you don't have to worry about hiring transportation to the salon.
Ask to buy the lipstick your artist uses since you will kiss it off during the ceremony, and you'll likely need other touchups throughout the day after all of those adorable kissing photos you're going to take!
Bring your jewelry, veil or other headpiece with you to your consultation. That way you can see what works best when your artist is doing your makeup and/or hair.
Bring a camera to your consultation and trial run so you can snap a photo of what you will look like on your wedding day.
Surprise your mom and bridesmaids with a gift they'll be sure to enjoy: the gift of beauty. Everyone in the bridal party will feel gorgeous on the biggest day of your life when you reserve our on-site hair and makeup specialists.
