These are a few answers to our most commonly asked questions. Please reach out if we can answer others for you.
Can I book for just me?
Absolutely! No matter the size of your party we will create a cohesive look for your group that photographs beautifully and is centered around the style of your wedding. We will create a unique look for each member of your bridal party, while maintaining a common feel. We have a wide range of packages available to fit your needs.
What do your services include?
Makeup services include perfectly matched foundation color & custom coverage, a full photography-ready look, and false lashes. Lip color will be the only thing that needs touching up throughout the day. On most occasions lip colors are available for purchase the day of your event.
Hair services include a cohesive look for your group, a personalized style for each person, curl & style from dry hair. Blowdry services are available for an additional fee.
What about a preview?
We believe in the benefits of a preview appointment so strongly that it is a requirement when booking with us! Getting to know each other and designing a look together, prior to your wedding day, is the key to an enjoyable, stress-free ’getting ready’ experience on the big day. Your preview appointment will be scheduled for 8-10 weeks prior to your wedding after your booking is finalized.
What if I want to meet you prior to booking you?
Absolutely! We have a boutique salon in Downtown Santa Rosa where we would love to meet with you for a complimentary consultation. If you are out of town, we are also available to schedule a consultation via Skype.
What if I want to do my preview prior to booking you?
We recommend your preview appointment 8 to 10 weeks prior to your wedding day, as opposed to in the vendor choosing process. There are so many details of your wedding day that will be very important in creating your look, that are still up in the air at this point. We do recognize that if you haven’t come to us by a direct referral you may wish to try out our services before committing to booking your wedding day with us. In these cases we offer a complementary consultation; often a face to face conversation to go with our portfolio of work can be enough reassurance. Or we would love to see you for makeup & hair in our studio prior to your engagement photo session, an engagement party, or another special occasion.
What kind of makeup do you use?
Our makeup kits vary each season and are an evolving collection of all our favorite items from various professional lines. In our studio we retail Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics foundations and we use that line on many makeup clients to achieve a healthy, perfect skin glow. We have a soft spot for MAC Pro eye shadows and are continually adding colors to keep our pro palettes full! We have a new brow palette from Anastasia that we are loving this season and we have a large selection of various lip and eye products from other professional lines. We always keep a diverse selection so that we can tackle any skin type, tone, and need!
Do you offer airbrush makeup?
We do not offer airbrush foundation. We have amazing coverage and color ranges from our beloved Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics foundation options. We achieve a similar light & glowy look to airbrush, with healthier ingredients and guaranteed stay power for a long wedding day. We haven’t found an airbrush line with the same combo of benefits.
How far in advance should I book my wedding with you?
We are currently booking for 2017, so the sooner you reach out the better!
