BRIDAL HAIR AND BEAUTY

YES. THE PRICE IS SLIGHTLY HIGHER THAN OUR TRADITIONAL BRIDAL MAKEUP APPLICATION, HOWEVER; IT IS OFFERED AT NO EXTRA COST WHEN CHOOSING ONE OF OUR BRIDAL PACKAGES: GOLD BRIDAL PACKAGE OR PLATINUM BRIDAL PACKAGE.




WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AIRBRUSH MAKEUP AND TRADITIONAL MAKEUP?


TRADITIONAL MAKEUP CAN FADE WITHOUT FREQUENT TOUCHUPS. IT OFTEN TIMES PROVIDES MORE COVERAGE THAN AIRBRUSH MAKEUP AND IS GREAT FOR PHOTOSHOOTS WHILE STILL GIVING YOU A FLAWLESS LOOK. AIRBRUSH MAKEUP PROVIDES A LONGWEARING APPLICATION THAT IS NON TRANSFERABLE. WHEN DONE CORRECTLY, IT LOOKS NATURAL, FEELS LIGHT, AND LASTS LONGER. PROVIDES A PERFECT LOOK BOTH IN PERSON AND ON CAMERA - NOT JUST IN PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHS EITHER.




WHAT IF SOME OF MY BRIDESMAIDS/GUESTS WANT HAIRSTYLING ONLY OR A MAKEUP APPLICATION ONLY?


NOT A PROBLEM! JUST CONTACT US AND WE WILL DISCUSS EVERYTHING.




DO YOU CHARGE MORE FOR AN UPDO?


NO. PRICING FOR ALL BRIDAL HAIRSTYLING IS THE SAME THROUGHOUT. (UPDO, HALF UP/HALF DOWN,ETC.) THE ONLY PRICE DIFFERENCE WOULD BE IF A BRIDESMAID/GUEST WANTED A BLOWDRY (ONLY - NO STYLE), OR BLOWDRY WITH STYLE.




DO YOU OFFER BLOW OUTS BEFORE BRIDAL HAIRSTYLING BEGINS?


YES, BUT FOR AN ADDITIONAL FEE. IN MOST CASES THE REHEARSAL DINNER/CEREMONY TYPICALLY IS PLANNED FOR THE NIGHT BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY SO WE RECOMMEND SCHEDULING A BLOWOUT/STYLE FOR YOUR REHEARSAL DINNER THIS WAY YOUR HAIR IS FRESH IN THE MORNING AND READY TO GO FOR YOUR BRIDAL SERVICES.




WHAT IF MY BRIDESMAIDS AND I ARENT SURE ABOUT WHAT HAIRSTYLING OR MAKEUP LOOKS WE WANT?


AFTER RECEIVING YOUR DEPOSIT FEE, ONE OF THE MANY THINGS WE CREATE FOR YOU IS A BRIDAL VISION BOARD. THIS IS WHERE WE COLLECT/SHARE ALL INTERESTS AND IDEAS BETWEEN YOU, YOUR BRIDAL PARTY AND US! WE CREATE A SECRET PINTEREST BOARD THAT WE INVITE YOU TOO AND YOU ARE FREE TO INVITE YOUR BRIDESMAIDS/GUESTS TO IT. FROM THE TIME OF BOOKING AND LEADING UP TO YOUR BRIDAL TRAIL WE WILL DISCUSS ALL INTERESTS AND IDEAS. AT THE BRIDAL TRIAL WE WILL DISCUSS ALL OF THE STYLES AND LOOKS SAVED AND THEN SOME! SO NOT TO WORRY IF YOU DONT HAVE ANY EXACT IDEA OF WHAT YOU WANT DONE! EVEN ON THE DAY OF THE WEDDING, ITS OK! WE RECOMMEND BROWSING PINTEREST FOR YOUR IDEAS, PICTURES ARE ALWAYS THE BEST RESOURCE!




DO YOU OFFER BRIDAL TRIALS/CONSULTATIONS? IF SO, IS THIS COMPLIMENTARY, DO YOU CHARGE FOR THIS OR IS IT INCLUDED IN YOUR PRICE?


ABSOLUTELY! ALTHOUGH BRIDAL TRIALS ARE OPTIONAL THEY ARE HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO HAVE A BRIDAL TRIAL DONE, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO SIGN OUR BRIDAL TRIAL CONTRACT. IF YOU DECIDE TO HAVE A BRIDAL TRIAL DONE YOU ARE STILL REQUIRED TO SIGN OUR GENERAL BRIDAL CONTRACT AT THE TIME OF YOUR TRIAL. UNFORTUNATELY, OUR BRIDAL TRIALS ARE NOT COMPLIMENTARY NOR ARE THEY INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF BRIDAL SERVICES. OFTEN TIMES, WE ADD PRICING FOR BOTH BRIDAL TRIAL AND DEPOSIT FEE TOGETHER AS YOUR FIRST PAYMENT, UNLESS OTHERWISE DISCUSSED. PRICING FOR OUR BRIDAL TRIALS IS AS FOLLOWS: 1.) BRIDAL HAIRSTYLING AND MAKEUP APPLICATION STARTS AT $175.00+ 2.) BRIDAL HAIRSTYLING ONLY STARTS AT $95.00+ 3.

YES. IF TOUCHUPS ARE REQUIRED WE ALOTT 30 MIN AFTER THE COMPLETION OF HAIRSTYLING AND MAKEUP APPLICATIONS TO STAY. IF WE ARE REQUIRED TO STAY FOR THE DURATION BETWEEN CEREMONY AND RECEPTION FOR TOUCHUPS ADDITIONAL HOURLY FEES ARE APPLIED.




WHAT IF I WANT A SECOND HAIRSTYLE AND MAKEUP LOOK? ONE FOR THE CEREMONY AND A DIFFERENT ONE FOR THE RECEPTION. WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO STAY TO DO A SECOND LOOK?


ABSOLUTELY! THIS WILL BE DISCUSSED AT THE TIME OF BOOKING AND AFTER. ADDITIONAL FEES WILL BE APPLIED FOR SECOND STYLES AND LOOKS. IF TOUCH UPS ARE REQUIRED FOR US TO DO AND TIME ALOTTS FOR THIS, WE CHARGE BY THE HOUR.




WHAT DO YOU INCLUDE (IF ANYTHING) IN YOUR HAIRSTYLING AND/OR MAKEUP APPLICATIONS?

GENERALLY, BOTH HAIR AND MAKEUP TAKES BETWEEN AN HOUR TO AN HOUR AND A HALF.




WHAT BRANDS/PRODUCTS DO YOU USE FOR HAIRSTYLING?
