Do you offer trials/Should I get one?
Yes, we offer Bridal Previews as an additional service. While Bridal Previews are NOT mandatory, they are highly recommended. We would be more than happy to pre-design your wedding day look for/with you. This post: Should you get a bridal preview will help you decide if you would like to book one.
How far in advance should I book my wedding date?
Wedding dates book quickly! Brides, please do not wait until the last minute to secure your wedding makeup or hair artist and book your bridal previews. It always hurts when I have to turn a bride away because I'm already booked on her date. Your wedding day is one of the biggest, most important days of your life, and YOU will be photographed more than anything or anyone on this day. Don’t leave your wedding day beauty needs to chance.
We start booking wedding dates one year in advance. To ensure the availability of your preferred artist, it is best to book your wedding makeup artist 9-12 months in advance. That being said don't hesitate to ask if I would be available last minute as a cancelation might happen or timing of day might work, you never know.
Wedding dates are not confirmed with me until a retainer and signed Wedding Service Agreement have been received.
Once you secure your artist, book your bridal preview immediately and schedule it for 2-6 months before your wedding day. Bridal previews are typically held on Mondays & Tuesday & Sunday at the studio NYC or Sundays at your location +travel fee.
Do you travel?
Yes. We travel around the TRI-STATE area and beyond both domestic and international to service our clients, Out of town clients are responsible for full travel and lodging expenses in addition to makeup and/or hair service fees.
Do you do make-up as well?
Yes, I take makeup appointments for bride-only bookings I specialize in natural and soft glam looks only.
For larger parties, I work with a team.
How long will my appointment be?
This varies per client, but appointments typically range from 60-120 minutes per person.
What should I wear while getting ready?
Don't wear a t-shirt! Novelty bride t-shirts are adorable, but you will have to pull them over your head to get into your dress, disrupting your hair and makeup! Opt for a sweatsuit that zips, a robe, or a large neck tank top. Shirts that button are always a good option, but no t-shirts, please!
How much time do you need on the wedding day?
This all depends on how you decide to have your hair and makeup. I’ll be able to work out the exact timings for the big day once you’ve had your trial run. I always allow plenty of time, making sure you’re ready and relaxed, with enough time to get your dress on, have some photos taken, and relax before you make your big entrance.
Why does the bride cost more?
There is more time spent with the bride from the inquiry stage through the booking process as well as the day of the schedule.
Do you have a service minimum for the day off?
No, you may book me just for yourself.
What cosmetics and styling brands do you use?
I use professional grade and luxury brands to ensure that I provide the highest quality of results to my clients. Here are the brands I use: for hair I only professional grade: Moroccanoil, Davines, Surface hair, Virtue, CHI, AZ, Redken, and Olapex.
For makeup: Armani, Laura Mercier, Bobbie Brown, MakeupForever, Smashbox, Benefit, Tarte, and Urban Decay. For airbrushing: I use Temptu. skincare I only use professional grade: SONIA ROSELLI, Makeup forever, Dr. Dennis Gross, Bio element, Dermalogica.
