 F.A.Q.

DO YOU PROVIDE ON LOCATION SERVICES?

Yes! All of our services are on location only. Meaning we come to you! We bring everything needed to beautify you and your bridal party. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the pampering! Please contact us for a travel rates.

WHEN SHOULD I SECURE MY DATE?

Many of our clients secure their date 8-12 months in advance. Saturdays, holidays and peak months, May-October, book quickly.

WHAT IS A BRIDAL TRIAL? IS IT REQUIRED? 

Our bridal trial is a one-on-one session with the artist/artists, at your desired location. Travel fees are complimentary for a trial within San Diego County.

 

A trial is not mandatory, but it is highly recommended. The trial is your opportunity to try out your makeup/hair style before your wedding day to make sure we are perfectly bringing your vision to life.  We recommend that you bring pictures of hairstyles and makeup you like, as well as your veil or hairpieces. Trials typically last 1.5 hrs.

WHAT TYPE OF PRODUCTS DO YOU USE?

We use high end cosmetics lines as well as professional lines. Our favorite professional lines include but are not limited to Make Up For Ever, Nars, MAC, Kiehls, Ben Nye, Smashbox, Urban Decay, RCMA, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and Colour Pop. 

 

For hair we use reputable lines such as Oribe, Paul Mitchell, Kenra, and Ouai. 

 

We closely follow makeup and hair trends to ensure we are bringing you the freshest look possible. We constantly test new products and believe picking and choosing the best products from different lines helps us achieve the best look for you. 

DO YOU USE HAIR EXTENSIONS?

We do not sell extensions, but can apply the extensions at no additional cost. We recommend 100% human hair, clip on extensions. 

DO YOU OFFER FAUX LASHES?

Yes! We feel lashes complete a makeup look. They open up the eyes and provide added depth and definition. Lashes are included with all services; you can choose individuals or a strip.

DO YOU STAY FOR TOUCH-UPS?

Touch-up services are available and billed in 1 hour increments after the original services are completed. Rates are $50 per hour for each artist staying. This service can be used to keep your hair and makeup flawless throughout the day, or if you’d like an additional style or makeup change after the ceremony.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE DO HAIR AND MAKEUP?

When you officially book your date, we provide a detailed schedule based on your party’s size and services. The average length of time for each service is as follows:
Bride:  makeup & hair- 2 hours |  Bridal Party: makeup and hair 1.5 hours

CAN I ADD OR REMOVE SERVICES AFTER I SECURE MY DATE? HOW DO I SECURE MY DATE?

It is best to know how many services you will need when booking in the event that we need to hire on assistants.  To officially book a wedding date, a 50% non-refundable deposit of the total bridal party must be received. The remainder balance is due one week prior to the wedding date. Agreement will be provided.

 

We recommend booking the minimum (4 people for both hair and makeup) and then adding-on services closer to your wedding date.  Be advised that adding services will affect your timeline on the day of the event.
