You offer airbrushing in your package or do you do regular foundation makeup also?
Yes I do both.
Lashes are also included in your package what if I want individual clusters?
Applying them is an additional cost due to time it takes. The lashes I use are natural to dramatic so you have a choice at your trial. If you don't like them I'll try different ones.
I have sensitive skin I'm worried about allergic reactions.
Do not stress about that. We will work together to make sure that you will not have any reactions. The trial is perfect to discuss that and work out what's safe for you. In the 12 years I've been doing this I have learnt what products are safe and what to avoid. If I get a bride telling me they have a reaction I stop using that product.
Can I bring my own makeup for you to use?
If that's the only product you can use then we can discuss that but typically no. For safety, sanitization and application reasons I need to know the products I'm working with to produce my best work.
It's going to be a long day will my makeup/hair last?
Yes. When doing a bridal party I leave the lips til the end. There I assess how the makeup looks and make any further touch ups if necessary. Same with Hair. I also offer to come back for touch up services after ceremonies also. That's $150 per hour.
My mom is a little nervous about getting her makeup/hair done on the morning of my wedding.
I strongly recommend that anyone in the bridal party and especially moms who are apprehensive about makeup or hair to come for a trial. It is not crazy for them to have a trial. In fact it's actually better. That way the morning of the wedding they will be less stressed knowing what to expect.
Can I book you and secure the date and do a trial for a special occasion or later date?
Absolutely, for peak times I'm usually booked out a year in advance so I recommend you secure the date with a $50 deposit and contract and organize a trial for that special occasion. (Please note: if that's also during a peak time please book as soon as you know)
Where do I go for trial?
Trial is at my location at a discounted rate. I'm happy to come to you but it will be at a higher rate.
How should I have my hair ready for you?
Hair should be washed and dried the night before. If your hair gets oily fast then morning of but always dried.
Can you blow out and then style it?
Of course but that's an extra cost. I do recommend girls who have very curly, frizzy hair to wash and blow out the night before to settle the hair before styling. I also offer that service the day before if needed and available.
My hair is thin I'm thinking hair extensions.
Absolutely! Most styles you see on your inspiration pics are girls who have extensions in.. some even two sets! I have a great place on Long island and online that's affordable for hair extensions and they match your hair perfectly.
What kind of hair extensions do I need?
The clip in kind. usually 16 or 18 inches long unless your hair is super long.
I've had my hair trial and loved it. I'm now thinking of trying a completely different look.
Come back for another trial! If I'm available I can do it. Sometimes during the first trial if it's between a down do and updo I can usually start with one and move to another to give options. I cannot however go from one look to Hollywood waves. Those take time and a different way to curl with more product. A separate trial is needed.
Do you cut hair also?
Nope sorry I don't, but can trim some front pieces if they're too long.
My hair doesn't hold a curl very well.
There's a type of curl that can hold better. Extensions also help too.
I have a headpiece I want to add and veil do you help me with that?
On the morning of my wedding can I put times for each girl to get their service done?
Yes if you would like to do that of course but I ask that all the girls be there at the start regardless because the timing for each girl could be different and it doesn't always stick to those times. If they are all there then it makes for a smooth morning and no wait times and unnecessary delays.
What is your preferred payment day of?
Cash is preferred. I do Zelle and Venmo if needed but I ask that everyone have cash morning of. Venmo charges fees and I would need to charge you those fees.
Do you travel?
Yes! I travel anywhere. Outside of a 40 mile radius of my location there is a travel fee.
My wedding is super early
No worries! To come to you before 6am there's an early bird fee. There are other options of having more artists that early to reduce the time you need to get ready.
I have a lot of girls needing services can your company handle this?
Yes absolutely. No party is too big or too small. We have you covered leave that part to me.
All your prices are listed is there any other hidden fees?
No. All is stated on the quote I send you.
Any other questions I haven't covered here don't hesitate to contact me on (917) 574-2369 anytime.
