How many persons will come to my wedding and provide service?
This is all dependent on the size of your bridal party and if your party requires a la carte services or package service (both hair & makeup). Generally it is anywhere from 1 – 3 persons. If your party has 6 or less services, 1 artist is required. This information along with your itinerary will be provided to you with your quote.
How long should a trial take?
A trial can take 2 – 3 hours but 3 hours are booked if 1 artist is coming and 1.5 if 2 are coming. During the trial your stylist(s) will chat with you and spend some time understanding your skin and hair. They can determine things such as appropriate heat temperature for your hair, length of time to curl, how your hair holds the curl, if your skin has a high absorbancy to makeup, which colors best suit you and etc. Your vision photos will be reviewed to establish your likes from each photo, and a custom look created.

Most of our clients book firm with a 50% reservation deposit. You may book tentatively with your trial payment only. Your trial must occur in a 3 week window, as the max time we are able to put the artists schedules on hold, as is their policy. A tentative booking is not firm until the deposit has been made at the end of the trial. You must make your payment at the end of the trial to secure your reservation, otherwise our automated system will release your date.

Can I book a high Tier and my party a lower Tier?
To send any artist from any Tier, they require the minimum srvice policy to be met. An artist will not attend an event for 1 client, and the other artist(s) attend for multiples. To be fair, and to meet their requirements, a mixed Tier booking means 4 plus services for any one artist.
Is there a fee to book more than one artist?
Your event will be assigned 1 or 2 artists, based on how many services are booked. Generally 2 artists can complete 8 woman in 6 hour apt. IE: 8 – 2 pm for a 3:30 pm wedding. If you wish to shorten your session, you may hire additional artists at a fee per person.
