Wedding Day FAQs
We prefer to have everyone come with clean, dry hair with NO previous heat styling. If you prefer to wash it the night before and let it air dry, that’s great too. DRY HAIR IS KEY!!! There will be an additional $25 fee to dry your hair.
We bring all the products we will need to fully take care of you and your bridal party. If you use a special cream, mousse, smoothing product, etc. (especially four our curly-haired beauties!), putting that in while wet and letting air dry is a-ok.
No. We also ask that everyone getting their makeup professionally done with us come with a clean and moisturized face. If you’d like to apply your own moisturizer, that’s great. Leave the rest to us!
Unless you have a rare, special allergy or skin condition, no. Everything we use in professional grade and all tools are properly sanitized between each person. “Reactions” to any products we use are extremely rare.
Nope! We bring all the tools and items that are needed and you will be set ALL day!
It is a personal preference with tanning in general. (Although, we highly suggest that skin cancer is NOT cute!) If you do decide to go traditional tanning, please cover your beautiful face!! For spray tanning, we have found that a customized airbrush spray is much more natural than a machine spray. At least three days prior to you wedding is the best time. So if you’re getting married on a Saturday, get your spray tan on Wednesday. (Disclaimer: If you do decide to get a spray tan, please try your spray artist out a few months in advance so you know exactly what to do the week of your big day and don’t arrive at a Jennifer Lopez/Wedding Planner situation. Orange isn’t a cute color next to your gown.)
We bring hand held mirrors but no chairs. Whatever is in the room in which you wish to get ready will be fine. We can work with any height, type, etc. If you would like to bring in bigger mirrors, that’s totally up to you. We are used to working without large mirrors as we are typically in hotel environments.
Your signed contract allows you 7 days from the date of signing to increase your numbers. We will ALWAYS do our very best to accommodate any added services, but cannot promise that we will be able to take care of any additions after the designated time frame given in your contract. Should we be able to accommodate your changes, a $50 change of contract fee will be accessed.
Should you have girlies decide to not have hair and/or makeup, you are still responsible for the fully contracted dollar amount. We have planned ahead and reserved/sent the appropriate number of artists to serve the numbers on your contract.
YES!!!! We allow 30 minutes per service but sometimes it doesn’t always take that long. We want to make sure we have everybody done and loving their look by the prior set done time.
PLEASE NO. While Excel spreadsheets are very impressive and complimentary to your organizational skills, timelines such as these NEVER (and we mean NEVER) get followed. In all reality, they end up being more of a hindrance than anything. Some girls will think they don’t have to show up until later, think they can leave to go run an errand, go back up to their room, go help out with set up, assist another vendor bringing in items, etc. Because we may not need the fully allotted time with the girl “in line” before, a spreadsheet can potentially run your entire bridal timeline behind. (Weird, but SO true!) Not only would we have no one ready to hop in an empty chair, but it doesn’t allow for a fun, relaxed atmosphere. After all, the whole point of having your artists come to you guys is so that it’s a fun, relaxed time where you all get to enjoy it together before the day starts to FLY… and it will!
We do highly recommitted that brides go purchase the color they decide is their “wedding day color”. We absolutely do use long wearing lip colors but with the full day of eating, drinking and (of course) kissing, we want you to have your dreamy shade in the event that you may need a touch up later in the evening.
No. With the professional, amazing quality of products we use, touch ups are simply not needed (other than potentially your lip color). Everything we use is made to last for many, may hours and will look beautiful from morning until your late night of celebrating and dancing is complete. However, if having an artist come back for a touch up is something you absolutely think you can’t live without, we can discuss options of sending someone back for an additional fee.
Is the person I had my trial with the same person that will be doing my hair and/or makeup for my wedding day?
YES! Barring an Act of God, we like to adopt the US Post Office motto (just maybe not their efficiency or countenance lol) “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays our artists from the swift completion of your wedding day beauty!” (paraphrased and adapted for our use obviously.)
Yes. They are absolutely more than welcome to schedule a preview appointment if they feel it is absolutely necessary. Those appointments are also scheduled exclusively on Mondays at our studio. It is still the regular fee and we are happy to accommodate anyone that would feel it appropriate.
You do you, boo. However, if you plan on having one of our artists apply false lashes please rethink a lift! It can create a kink that makes it nearly impossible to place the lashes appropriately and comfortably.
