How many people can you accommodate for hair and makeup services?
- We can accommodate up to 12 guests for both hair and makeup services and 15 guests when just booking one service. Alex will bring other stylists at no extra charge to you. There is a minimum of 5 guests for us to travel on location. We must know the total number of guests in advance with very large groups to make sure we have enough stylists available that day.
How far in advance should I book my wedding date?
- It is best to book 6 months to 1 year in advance. Saturday's fill up first.
How far do you travel?
- We are located in New windsor NY (Orange County) and only travel locally. up to 45 minutes away.
What kind of payments do you accept?
- On the day of your wedding it is cash only for you and your guests. The bride should have her balance in an envelope for us and we will collect each guests payment after there service. During your trial appointment we will accept check or credit. (Master Card and Visa only) taxes will apply with credit.
How long does it take for hair and makeup services?
- When booking us for both services it depends on the size of your party. 5-8 guests all receiving hair and makeup would be under 4 hours and 2 stylists. 8-12 guests receiving both services would be up to 5 hours and 3 stylists. When booking just one service the time is less. For example: If we arrange our time from 10am-2pm we will arrive about 10 minutes early to set up, in which all of your guests should already be there and ready to go. We will collect payment after each persons service. Your finishing time should be early enough to give you and your guests time to get dressed and do any last minutes things after.
What if I need only hair or only makeup services?
-We are available to book for just one service. We require a minimum of 5 guests or $500 minimum to travel.
Do you have makeup to match my skin and different skin tones?
- Yes, we have a variety of different foundations for any skin tone. All of our mascaras are waterproof and humidity proof. We provide makeup and false strip eyelashes. It is not necessary that you purchase or bring any makeup, except for lipstick to reapply during the day.
What kind of makeup do you use and will it last all day?
- We use only professional brands. Mostly MAC cosmetics, some Urban Decay, LORAC, Bare Minerals, Benefit, and Anastasia. As a professional artist we take the right steps to ensure your makeup will stay flawless all day. Aside from lipstick that normally needs to be touched up after eating.
Do you stay for touch ups after the ceremony?
- When we are finished that morning, we make sure to touch up everyone before leaving. We don't stay on site or offer touch up services. (I honestly find its no necessary. Everything will last for hours!)
Do you have airbrush makeup?
- We currently do not offer airbrush services
What kind of eyelashes do you use?
- Full strip eyelashes (they only stay on for one day) this is not eyelash extensions or individual lashes. We do not apply individual lashes.
If I have clip in extensions can you put them in for me?
- Yes, there is an additional $20 charge for application. You must bring your own.
Should I wash my hair that morning?
- We recommend leaving your hair dirty, but it is your preference. Washing it the day before would be best. All guests must have their hair completely dry and ready to be styled. Avoid flat ironing your hair before getting it curled. The curl will not hold. Remember to wear a button up or easy shirt to remove.
What if I have naturally curly hair?
- You should have your hair blown out the night prior if you would like a curling iron curl. Otherwise we will create your style using your natural curl. (We will not have time to blow out your hair straight and then style it that morning. if someone requests this there is an additional charge and we need to know in advance to arrange our time accordingly.)
Does the bride get her services last or first?
- The bride is done closer to the end of our finishing time. All guests must arrive at the start time, to ensure we are done accordingly. We will begin with 2 or 3 guests for services when we arrive and continue to work in a timely order.
How will the veil be placed without messing up my hair?
- We will show your maid of honor or guest of choice, how to put the veil in so they are able to remove it later without messing up your hair. You can bring the veil during your trial but you don't need to.
How long are the trials and can you travel to me?
- The trials are 1-2 hours. They are done at our studio during the week, by appointment only. We do not travel on location for trials. If you request more time for your trial it's an additional $50 each half hour.
What should I expect during the trial?
- We will try 1 or 2 different hair looks and a makeup look. Together we will discuss the look you are going for to create the perfect style for you. We will take pictures of everything so you can refer back to them. Bring photos of looks you like and any hair pieces. We also have combs and hair pieces for you to get some ideas. Try to find photos that are the same hair color as yours. it also helps to wear a white shirt.
When do I schedule my trial?
- It is your preference how early you would like to schedule a trial. I recommend about 3-5 months prior to your wedding date.
I live out of state and don't have time for a trial, do I need one?
- A trial is recommended, but not necessary. You can send photos by email and we can discuss everything prior to your event.
Will my hair and makeup look exactly like the picture I want?
- We will do our best to create the exact look you are going for. Your hair type, length and texture will reflect the finished style.
Is gratuity included?
- Gratuity is not included, but greatly appreciated.
