Bridal Hair & Makeup FaQ

  • How soon in advance should I book my wedding with you?
    We can’t hold a date without a contract and deposit. The sooner you know your date, the better. Sophie and the team books up to 12 months out and goes quickly. Once you have secured a venue and date, we advise that you book hair and makeup right after. We have great photographer recommendations as well— just ask! ;)
  • Can I book my trial first and wedding date later?
    Due to high demand we are unable to reserve your date past your trial without a deposit. If you book a trial only, you risk your artist being unavailible for your wedding date.

    I have a team of awesome artists that are highly trianed and we are able to accomodate larger parties and create a stress free enjoyable experience for you and your wedding party.

  • Why am I charged and additional artist fee?
    We charge an artist fee (after the two that are included) to cover all my additional administrative work to secure an artist , Schedule the additional bridal party , Additional time spent creating the timeline, invoice, contract, etc, coordinating with the additional artists. You are having multiple artists turn down other work to take care of your event in a reasonable amount of time. It is also a convenience to have your prep time cut down.

    Yes, we require a non refundable, non transferable retainer of 50% of the contracted services. It is collected when you sign the contract and is put towards your total invoice. Balance is due two weeks before your wedding day.

    We will draw up a schedule and send it to you 2 weeks before your wedding day!

We like to have everyone ready 2 hours before the ceremony, so you have time for getting ready photots after the photographer arrives.

    Overtime charges take effect when the artist/stylist is not done with your bridal party at the contracted “Service End Time” through no fault to the artist/stylist or the amount of time scheduled for them by our staff. We allot plenty of time for them to do your party. These charges will be incurred if the end time is exceeded at the fault of the client and their guests. For example, if people aren’t ready when our team gets there, if there isn’t a steady flow of people ready (with mascara in hand) to have their makeup/hair done, or if additional people or services are added on the day of. Since there are instances where our artists need to do another wedding on the same day, running late may result in them being late to another wedding.
