  • Should I wear my hair up or down?
    This is a great question! If your wedding is in the prime summer months of June and July we do highly recommend wearing your hair up. Especially, if you’re doing an outside ceremony or photos. Once we style your hair up and pin it, it’s not going anywhere. Sometimes for 24hrs. Honest! Read our reviews! If you decide to wear your hair down we will do everything we can to ensure your hair holds. We highly recommend extensions for the fullness and volume of the hair which will help your hair hold the style choice.

Just ask!
  • Why should I book BOTH hair AND makeup services with you?
    There are many benefits to booking both hair and makeup services with us! We help you with timing that morning and ensure that our artists (who’ve worked together for years) run on time and efficiently. This ensures that we are always communicating with each-other on the day of, to ensure thing are running on time. We do the work before hand of communicating with you so that we’re organized and efficient on your wedding morning, as a pose to working with another team that we have no communications with. If they arrive late then that puts us behind too. It also means you have a lot less emails, contracts and back and forth. Less chances of miscommunication, and less time spent doing repetitive emails on your end.
  • How do I prep my hair for my wedding day?
    We ask you to wash and blow dry your hair the night before with a round brush. This helps us because you’ve prepped the hair properly which allows curls & volume to hold! No need to flat iron unless the team has advised you to do so.
  • How do I prep my skin for my wedding day?
    We ask you to arrive with a freshly washed and well moisturized face. Please don’t wear any makeup. Drinking lots of water the week of your wedding will help you glow. Water is a key aid to getting hydrated, glowing skin. It also helps if you plan on having a few glasses of champagne! LOL
  • What happens on my wedding morning?
    On your wedding morning your artists will arrive 10-15 minutes earlier than your start time. This way we can set up and start on time and not run behind! We will complete all services in the requested timeline and do touch ups on everyone before we leave.
  • Should I have a schedule for my bridal party?
    This is entirely up to you! We are happy to abide by one. We do find generally though that the brides that don’t have timelines are much more relaxed as things often run ahead of schedule depending on services. Every artist will have a list of who they are needing to complete so that they can complete all services on time. If you feel more comfortable with a schedule absolutely do one!
  • When should my bridal party arrive on the wedding day?
    We ask all guests that are having hair and makeup done from our team to arrive 15 minutes before our start time. This gives everyone time to grab a coffee, hang their dress up and get into the chair so we begin on time. Our team will also arrive 15 minutes before our start time so we can assess everyone’s needs and better service all of you.
  • What do I need have ready for your team the morning of my wedding?
    On the morning of your big day we will need: One normal height chair (ideally with a lower back, so we can get to your hair) for each hairstylist. Folding chairs work great for this! One chair per makeup artist. This chair would ideally be bar stool height (if available). A large table (like a dining room table) OR one smaller table per artist. We also recommend putting an old sheet or table cloth on the large table so it protects the table from the hair products. We use heat protecting sheets for our hot tools.
  • What time should I be ready by?
    We strongly recommend being done all services an hour before you need to leave. This way you have lots of time to brush your teeth, eat something, take those gorgeous photos you want of you getting ready. But, it also allows in case anyone is late arriving for services so that you’re not late leaving. You’ve planned this for over a year most likely. Take some time and enjoy your morning!
