Frequently Asked Questions
How and when do I book my wedding date for hair and/or makeup services?
I recommend booking your hair and makeup services at least 6 months in advance. To hold your wedding date, there contract that must be filled out, signed, and returned so that I know you understand the terms of our agreement. Once this is looked over, you will also be required to pay a deposit which will be deducted from the total due the day of your wedding. Your date will not be held until the contract is signed and the deposit has been paid.
Are trials necessary and how do they work?
Trials are of course optional but HIGHLY recommended. This gives us time to meet and get to know each other before your wedding day! All services are done on location so I will come to you (whether in your home or hotel if traveling from out of state). I book 2 hours for hair and makeup and we will try 1-2 styles in this timeframe (it becomes overwhelming if you see too many styles). This time together will also ensure that we are comfortable working with each other for your wedding day and put you at ease of one less thing to worry about.
What products do you use?
For hair styling, I love to use Kenra hair products and R&Co.
For Make up, I have a wide variety of professional products I use depending on skin type. Everything in my kit is long lasting and formulated so you are camera ready for the whole day. My kit does include traditional makeup and Temptu airbrush makeup.
Can I schedule a trial before I sign the contract and make my deposit?
I do not schedule any trial runs before there is a signed contract and a paid deposit. I have many inquires for the same date(s) and it is not possible to accommodate everyone.
What happens if the amount of services that are on my contract changes?
I do require to have a final count of services two months prior to your wedding date. After this time, any services that were agreed upon as per the contract will be paid for. If there are any services that you wish to add, please let me know as soon as possible so I can do my best to accommodate the change.
Airbrush vs. Traditional Makeup
What is the difference between airbrush makeup and traditional makeup?
The major difference between airbrush makeup and traditional makeup is the way the product is applied. Traditional makeup is applied by hand tools such as a brush, beauty blender, or sponge and is worked into the skin for an even finish. The coverage of traditional makeup can range from a natural dewy glow to a matte heavy/full coverage. Airbrush makeup is applied with a spray tool and lays on the skin as opposed to being worked into the skin. The coverage of airbrush makeup can also range from a natural dewy glow to a heavier coverage.
How do I know whether to request airbrush or traditional makeup?
The choice of product depends on your skin. Traditional makeup can be used on all skin types. Airbrush makeup is perfect for people who do not wear a lot of makeup and are not used to feeling the product on their face. Airbrush makeup is not recommended for people with dry skin or excess hair because airbrush makeup sits on the skin as opposed to being worked into the skin, it may pick up on more imperfections and make them stand out instead of covering them.
What are the pros and cons of airbrush makeup?
Airbrush makeup is light weight, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, paraben, phthalate and gluten free
Which product offers more coverage?
You can achieve a full coverage look with both traditional or airbrush makeup. If you need more coverage, we would reccommend sticking with traditional makeup as opposed to airbrush. With traditional makeup, you can achieve a fuller look with less product as opposed to airbrush makeup you will have to build onto the product to get more coverage. More product can cause a lot of build up of product and can make you feel as thought you have a ton of product on your face when it is not necessary.
How do I remove airbrush makeup?
The same way you would move traditional makeup. There is no special product needed.
