When should I book my wedding date?
Clients traditionally book their day 6-18 months in advance after their date is confirmed. There is a $50 deposit required in order to reserve your date. This will be deducted from your balance the day of the wedding
Do I need a Preview Session?
To ensure your desired look on your wedding day, a ‘Preview Session’ is recommended.
Tell me about your wedding dress, your flowers and décor, and how you usually wear your hair and makeup for a special occasion. I listen and guide you toward the style that suits you best. Throughout the trial, I will take detailed notes and photos so that when your wedding day comes, I am fully prepared and ready to recreate the look. Because I want to make sure you find your ultimate bridal look, you are always welcome to contact me for advice on how to get the most from your trial. If you’re trialing both hair and makeup, allow 2½ hours.
*I recommend that you book your wedding day before your preview session, to ensure availability.
What do I need for the Preview Session?
To best design your wedding day look, bring what you like to the Preview Session. For example, photos of makeup & hair inspirations, a photo of your wedding dress, accessories, colors, or theme to your wedding. A face chart with detailed notes will be created as well as photos to refer to in order duplicate your desired look on the wedding day. I strongly recommend having a Preview Session, however, it is not required.
*For portfolio work there will be a ‘before & after’ photo taken.
What brand of makeup do you use?
All of the products used are of the best quality. I mix and match all brands such as MAC, Smashbox, Laura Mercier, Kevin Aucoin, Urban Decay, NARS, Dinar, Too Faced, RCMA, Buxom, Bare Minerals, Makeup Forever, Sephora, OCC Cosmetics, House of Lashes, Benefit, Ben Nye, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Dinair and many others (I am constantly trying what is new!) .
Wedding Day schedule break-down…
Each service has an allotted time frame (for details click here), when trying to determine start time consider each member of the party and what they will require.
A schedule will be created for you to confirm before your wedding day. I believe that good preparation is the foundation for long-lasting hair and makeup, so I have built extra time into the schedule. You won’t feel rushed, because with this system, the process is smooth and chaos free. I do request everyone be ready upon arrival to keep the day running smoothly.
*For larger parties, additional stylists will be provided depending on availability. Should you have a specific stylist in mind please make note in your contact form. When more than 2 Stylists/Artists are required you will be subject to a $50 fee per Stylist/Artists.
Should my Bridal party have their hair and makeup done?
Absolutely. A professional artist can help to bring beauty and symmetry to all of your bridal party. Everyone will have a professional & beautiful look. It also makes a great gift!
Please contact me if you’re interested in giving a Gift Certificate for services.
Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom often prefer to have their hair and makeup done by their regular stylist/artist as they are most familiar with their preferences.
What time should we be ready by?
Let’s keep your day running smoothly by allowing me to help you plan your wedding day time frame. I will need to know the number in your party, along with the hair and/or makeup services they desire and the time everyone needs to be ready. Include all of this information on the “Save the Date form”. If you are uncertain of when you should be ready by, touch base with your photographer as they will have a pretty good idea of how the day should run.
What forms of payment are acceptable?
Cash, Check, & Credit Cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, & Discover)
